Valverde: “I find it strange to play with two guest teams”

first_imgErnesto Valverde appeared before the press on the eve of the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup that will face the Barcelona with the Atlético de Madrid (Thursday, 8:00 p.m.) in the city of Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).Throughout the season, they usually meet a lot with Atlético. How important is the game?It is a different format than what we are used to. It is not a tie is not a League match. It is definitive and, in that sense, we take it as a League match knowing that we are looking for victory and that we know the difficulty of facing Atlético.Do you feel comfortable here?I know it has resonance but the football in which we are involved is an industry. What sources of income are being sought or are being sought is why we are here and just as there are some special connotations in Morocco, there are them here. It’s not the same as playing at home, but here we are. We are fine and acclimatizing.Is it necessary to refresh the equipment?We’ll see. At the moment we only have one game and we came from playing last Saturday. We have five days of margin and we don’t have to think about much more because after tomorrow’s game another one may come, or not.How is the team?We have brought more players based on what happens tomorrow. Because if you pass you would have to train … Against Atlético there are no easy games and against these rivals, less. You play it in a match and anything can happen.Have you talked to Vidal? We do not have to think that you are going to go to any team. Tomorrow we’ll see. In principle it is with us. There is no clue.Do you prefer to play here or be playing at home?I will give you objective data. This is my fifth Super Cup. In the first three, my team had to play the field lap of the rival. And when I have been a League champion I have had to play outside. It is strange to play with two guest teams.Would you rather play this competition in summer?I dont know. It has always been the first title of the season between the League champion and the Cup champion. It seems to me that it was fine. It has changed. We will value it once it happens. What is clear that the matches are attractive to the public, but from the sporting point of view, League champion there is only one. And Cup champion there is only one.Are they making too many goals in the last minutes?Everyone sees it in a way. There are times that the opposite marks us before, other times we mark. I don’t think we have many ups and downs in the last minutes. That we have not made the same points.What do you suggest that United and Inter want Vidal?Arturo Vidal plays with us and tomorrow he will be in the field or on the bench. Over there nearby. We do not pay attention to other players interested in ourslast_img read more

Zizou detected a change in attitude in Welsh in the match against Osasuna: his pinky was damaged, he asked the doctors to stick it together with another finger to continue playing and he kept doing it. Also, these weeks has seen him more engaged and more intense and involved in training sessions. A first step to try again to be the determining player that was in the first season he arrived (2013-14), in which he scored in the Copa (al Barça) and Champions (at Atleti) finals.

Upamecano pressures to be transferred this summer

first_imgHis current club can do little more than try to get the most out of the central herculean. The financial situation of Leipzig, despite having the backing of the powerful Red Bull, is not to throw rockets. Cannot guarantee wages of its more than 400 employees and of the players, who have also cut their salaries, beyond june. If the Bundesliga does not resume the matches in a short period of time, the situation will worsen further. Leipzig think of two substitutesLeipzig is a very jealous club when it comes to showing its accounts for its relationship with Red Bull, but the energy drinks company also owns the Austrian Salzburg, and will not cover large losses if they go on forever. Leipzig has become a German power trying to be self-sufficient and that includes the market. “We are not sellers, but we will have to sell“The club’s senior officials assume in private. They do not speak directly of Upamecano, but in Germany it is taken for granted and Markus Krösche, the sports director, has two possible substitutes in the room: Malang Sarr, from Nice, and Tanguy Kouassi, a pearl of PSG who is listening to proposals. Upamecano will end up leaving and Real Madrid is one of the strongest candidates to welcome you … Upamecano almost meets the parameters that the white club is also looking for, in terms of age (21 years), projection (it is Under-21 with France) and growth under the baton of Julian Nagelsmann, the prodigy technician of the Bundesliga. There is a narrow bridge to reach it (shares representatives with Toni Kroos), Madrid has Zizou’s appeal and a very French wardrobe, although above all the key lies in its contractual situation. He has neither wanted nor wants to renew with Leipzig and his current salary, just over € 2M, allows a lot of room for improvement despite the crisis. The fact that his current relationship with Leipzig ends in 2021 makes him in practice the owner of his destiny. Zidane is dumped on the French market and he especially likes Dayot Upamecano. As published by AS, the French center back from RB Leipzig is an option that is on his mind as the central quarter of the squad. And Upamecano is for sale. The defender contract ends in 2021 and as this newspaper could know, it is pressing so that they sell to him this summer. No matter the crisis caused by the coronavirus, think it’s time to jump into a big one. Upamecano, with the French U21.AFPlast_img read more
