The 10 great unknowns of Spanish football by 2020

first_img5- The new Super CupAmong all the measures taken by Luis Rubiales throughout 2019, the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia has been one of the most controversial. The tournament, until today summer, passes to the month of January, will have four participants and will be disputed outside national borders. Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atlético de Madrid and Valencia will play the trophy in Final Four format, in an innovative idea very different from the classic winner of the League against the winner of the Copa del Rey double game. The most discussed was its location, even by the Government, although the president of the RFEF said that Saudi Arabia was the place chosen to try to improve the situation in the country. The televisions, not compliant with the location, gave up on broadcasting the competition in open. Finally, it will be seen in Movistar +.6- Neymar and Mbappé, the big goalsCHARLES PLATIAU & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Neymar and Mbappé will once again star in the market for another year.CHARLES PLATIAU (REUTERS) They are the most popular names summer yes and summer too. In 2020 it will be no less. Mbappé is still the favorite for the greats of Spanish football, but the PSG is an uncompromising negotiator and will not let you out except for an exorbitant figure. With the Brazilian it is different. Last summer he already begged to agree on his departure, but Barcelona did not reach the amounts required by the Parisian directive. It was an open secret and it still is: Ney is not comfortable in France and wants to leave as soon as possible. It is not the intended number 1, but Real Madrid would not rule out its signing if the opportunity presents itself. With Messi and Cristiano in recent years at the highest level, the two stars of the PSG are the kings of the market.7- What will the Copa del Rey hold?Only one round of the new cup format has been played and, of course, it has not left anyone indifferent. A total of nine Second Division teams have fallen eliminated by lower category clubs. He has also yielded the Alavés against Real Jaén, a Third, something that had not happened for more than twenty years. However, the existence of two more rounds can leave about sixteenths of the final with less humble clubs than previous years. Or maybe a similar figure. In the absence of Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atlético and Valencia joining the competition, the second round will be played on the weekend, in the purest English style. A single game and at the home of the child, there is a guarantee that each tie will be full of emotion. Do youWill get some modest fight in advanced rounds?8- The future of the historicalPaco Zas and Al Thani, questioned since September. The former no longer occupies his position. The hype has been benevolent with Spain, which has been framed with Poland, Sweden and one of the winners of the playoffs. However, passing the group is not the goal, but rather winning. France is already established as an elite team and many other teams are at the level of the one trained by Luis Enrique: Germany, Holland, Portugal, Italy, Belgium … One of the most equal Eurocups of the century is raised and there is the big question,the national team has enough level to fight for the championship?4- Benzema, for MessiKarim Benzema is unquestionably a leader for Real Madrid. The French striker responds with goals and his inseparable game of association to the expectations placed on him, although he will always question whether or not he is an elite gunner. At the moment, in the 2019-20 season is leaving his signature at the top of the scorers table. With 12 goals under his belt, just is one of Leo Messi, which is the provisional pichichi. While is true that the ’10’ missed some games due to injury, the madridista has found regularity from face to door. Do youBenzema can overcome the Argentine star or, at least, stay in the fight until the final stretch of the championship? In Europa League, on the contrary, Sevilla is once again one of the great favorites to win the competition. The Lopetegui team has been first of the group peacefully, giving rest to the most common, and will face in sixteenths the Cluj. Espanyol also advanced as a leader, but it has touched a poisoned dart: the Wolverhampton. The one that suffered the most and the one that apparently more complicated has to advance to the round of 16 is the Getafe. Chance did not smile at him and crossed him with Ajax from Amsterdam, semifinalist of the Champions last season. A reason to smile, but many unknowns. The seven Spaniards are classified, butSome may represent LaLiga until the final rounds?2- The explosion of young talents Given the exorbitant transfer market and the high price to be paid by mid-level players, Spanish clubs are exercising a policy of incorporating young players, who are more affordable and that they point to world stars in the future. A dozen promises raise the ovation of the First Division camps every weekend. They are not even 20 years old, but They are accompanied by an unmistakable charisma and nobody doubts that they will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Sometimes they accuse the lack of opportunities. In other cases, when they have them, they see the need to impress as soon as possible, which causes them frustration and natural mistakes at their age.Young people called to make an impression in 2020. Every January 1, thousands and thousands of people around the world make a list of purposes for the coming year and it is inevitable that dozens and dozens of questions pass through their minds. It will not be different in football, a sport so changing that who would say two years ago that Deportivo and Málaga were going to be evicted in the Second Division or that Liverpool was going to send with an iron fist in the Premier League. Or what Robert Moreno was going to go out the back door of the Spanish National Team or that the Copa del Rey He was going to take an absolute turn until he gave opportunities to Regional clubs. 2019, regardless of the results, has once again been an unforgettable year, like everyone else, on the national scene. As they say, in 2020 more and better. But, What is on trial in Spanish football? What are the big questions for the year that has just begun? Leave the grapes aside, that the king sport is back.1- Do the Spaniards continue to rule in Europe?The 2018-19 season left the Spanish teams in a bad place. Madrid was severely executed by Ajax; Barcelona suffered a remembered 4-0 at Anfield; the Athletic accused the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo; and the Valencia, despite his good work, fell eliminated in a complicated group. More than concrete results, in Spain there was a feeling that a step back had been taken and that the Champions League was English territory. The group stage of this has not seen the best version of the four national representatives and the eighths will be a turning point. Zidane’s team has had a ‘coconut’, a Manchester City in need of claiming. Simeone’s, another high: Liverpool Klopp. Barça and Valencia will have it easier, that faces will be seen with Naples and Atalanta respectively.Madrid and Barcelona were out of the Champions League after a disastrous second leg. Real Madrid commands the eleven youth of LaLiga Santander with Rodrygo and Vinicius in the squad and Kubo and Martin Odegaard growing Mallorca and Real Sociedad respectively. Barcelona, ​​with Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati, also has a promising future. Aleña, newcomer to Betis, will return to Barcelona with more minutes in the First Division. Joao Felix, and a reality, should take the definitive step to stardom in 2020. Ferran and KangIn Lee, promises of Valencia, point very high, although they still have to consolidate. What will become of them in the new year?3- The actual level of the Selection2019 was a storm year in the national team, with the unexpected and tense march of Robert Moreno and the return of Luis Enrique. Both technicians crossed statements without making it clear what the problem was that forced them to take separate paths. Beyond that, the National Soccer Team has achieved the qualification for the European Championship, which will be held in the month of June at different locations. One of them will be Bilbao, so the national team will enjoy the privilege of playing the first three games before their audience.The National Team, for the challenge of the European Championship. Málaga and Deportivo de la Coruña are two regulars of the first category of Spanish football who now live a deep crisis which causes tremors among its fans. After a disputed half-turn, both are in danger. Malaga, suffering from the passivity of Al Thani at many times, has come to have problems to add seven players of the first team, although it has overlapped and, for the moment, does not occupy relegation places. With 23 points, one is above the descent marked by Extremadura. The Depor, meanwhile, has just announced the arrival of Çolak and Fernando Vázquez To try to get out of the pit. It has a new directive and its economic situation is not alarming. However, a decline to Second B would be catastrophic. For now, good year entry, add 18 points and is four from salvation.9- The return of CádizDespite its ‘bad’ final results, Cádiz has made a dreamlike first round and has been, at times, the best leader in history. Now it is eight points ahead of Huesca, first team in Playoff positions, and in five at Almeria, Second classified. While it is true that the advantage is not as comfortable as it could seem over the past few months, the Cervera team has in its hand to return to the highest category of Spanish football. In addition to ascending, Coach continuity is one of the guidelines set out in Vizcaino’s notebook, President. The technician ends the contract in June and is now free to negotiate with other clubs. Offers will not be missing, of course. Step by step, the first thing is to certify the elite. In his hand is.10- The end of the internal wars in the Lightning?Be in First or Second Division, Lightning is one of the teams that has more talk Among football fans. These lines do not refer to the Zozulia Case, which has unleashed a storm on the national scene, has transcended political representatives and has caused Martín Presa go out to give public explanations. Rather, the problem is in the questioned communion between board, players and fans. Paco Jémez, his technician, spoke of all this in an interview in AS: “We are all too tense and jumping to the minimum. We will try to get the problems put to us by the rivals, not ourselves. The one to the other, the other to the ones, Nobody is saved here. Hopefully we are a united club that people envy. We have to fix it. Vallecas has lost all the essence that has made him great. We are one more field. Before it was the last redoubt of neighborhood football, foreigners came to watch games … We have loaded it and it is our fault“.last_img read more

Camavinga’s Golden Cage

first_imgAs AS reported, Camavinga could go out in the summer for 50 million. Zidane loves him if Pogba doesn’t come. But the obstacles are several. The first, which does not have a liberation clause. The second, which has a contract until 2022, so Rennes does not need to sell. The third, that In the Breton club, nothing moves without being approved by the Pinaults. It is of little use to be even the best president in the recent history of Rennes. If you get out of the script, you pay for it. It happened to Olivier Létang, who had to leave his presidential chair because he did not duly report that he was dealing with a possible sale of Camavinga to Madrid. It was of little use to him to go third in the classification of the French League. “Létang thought Rennes was his and the Pinaults didn’t like that,” read the French press. The family is so rooted in Rennes that the heir to the empire, François-Henri, partner of actress Salma Hayek, was a ball boy for the red and black team when I was a child … François Henri Pinault, the CEO of the Pinault group, along with his partner, actress Salma Hayek.AFP An enviable economyThe case is that the Rennes does not need to make box. It is together with PSG the healthiest club in France and his losses last season were just € 1.5 million, a negligible amount for a club that fights in the noble zone of Ligue 1 and plays the Europa League. It would not even affect the crisis caused by the coronavirus, because in addition to the Pinault mattress, if the pressure of the Ligue1 on television operators is maintained so that they respect the new contract that must enter into force in 2020-21, Rennes will go from charging € 28M for its audiovisual rights to € 51M, almost double. A quantum leap for an unstable club but financially managed with Swiss precision. It takes two consecutive seasons in which it practically buys and sells for almost the same amount. AND sniffs the Champions, spur greater to avoid the flight of talents.Meanwhile the climate in the surroundings of the Rennes is pressing so that the young midfielder is still there. Although the squad’s coach rennais He assured in AS that Camavinga would fit in Chamartín, it is still expected that the footballer will reconsider and continue training in his current team. “Leave Camavinga alone!”, was the expressive owner of the correspondent of SoFoot in a report on the boy’s situation. Much of Camavinga’s future is in the hands of the Pinaults, in if they want to open the luxury cage and let it fly.center_img At first glance, the Rennes It may seem like a club unable to bear the onslaught of a great player from Europe by one of its footballers. Error. Whoever wants the pearl Camavinga now, as is the case of the Real Madridwill have to go over the Pinault clan, father and son. They are what in Anglo-Saxon terms would be called billionaires, actually billionaires, the heads of a multinational luxury holding company (Gucci, Yves Saint Lurent, Puma …) with which the family has raised wealth estimated at 30,500 million euros. Fortune 37 in the Forbes ranking. They are owners and fans of Rennes, they have no need to enrich themselves with their football team and their pulse does not tremble: according to L’Èquipe, in February they kicked out the president of the Breton club because he negotiated with Madrid for Camavinga behind the shareholders’ meeting. You don’t play with the Pinaults. last_img read more

CC&PA denies rape allegation against officer

first_imgIn light of an article that was published in Guyana Times on June 19, 2018, under the caption, “Teen allegedly molested by CC&PA Office”, Director of the Child Care and Protection Agency, Ann Greene, vehemently denied that an officer of the Agency was the perpetrator.CC&PA Director Ann GreeneDuring a telephone conversation with Guyana Times on Tuesday, Greene explained the officer who was implicated in the matter is the one conducting the investigation. She could not release information on the perpetrator but is adamant that her officer is not involved.The mother of the child however, is attached to another department within the Social Protection Ministry.She explained that an investigation was launched into the matter the moment it was reported to the officers at the CC&PA. She further stated that investigations have been completed and handed over to the Police for further investigation.“As we speak, the files is with the Police who will have to send same to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) who will determine the way forward…,” she explained.However, she reprimanded Guyana Times for the “erroneous” and “misleading” article and more so threatened to take legal actions.

Papiss Cisse could miss Newcastle’s entire Christmas schedule admits Steve McClaren

first_img1 Papiss Cisse Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse could miss the entire holiday programme after an initial scan on his damaged groin proved inconclusive.The Senegal international limped off 33 minutes into Saturday’s 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Aston Villa at St James’ Park after landing awkwardly, and is not only a major doubt for the Boxing Day clash but for the games which immediately follow.Head coach Steve McClaren said: “He’s had a scan and he needs a second opinion on another to gauge the severity, how long [he will be out]. We still don’t know, but he’s a doubt for the weekend.”That represents a blow to McClaren, who has preferred Cisse to summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic for the last four games, although the Serbia international came off the bench at Tottenham on December 13 to cancel out Eric Dier’s opener and then set-up fellow substitute Ayoze Perez to clinch victory.However, he has received better news on the injury front with a quartet of players – defenders Jamaal Lascelles and Steven Taylor, who both have hamstring problems, midfielder Rolando Aarons and striker Emmanuel Riviere, who are recovering from foot and knee injuries respectively – either back in training or ready to resume within days.McClaren said: “Jamaal trained this morning for the first time; Rolando will train at the end of the week and Manu will be training by the end of the week.“Steven Taylor is coming on really well, so a fortnight into January he could be back training as well, so it’s good news on that front.”The Magpies play at 5.30pm on Boxing Day and will be in training on Christmas Day as they put the final touches to their preparations.McClaren said: “We’ll train as normal. We’ll be in nice and early and prepare for Everton. We have to be professional when others are enjoying it a little bit more and just make sure we focus and keep our intensity.“The players will be in during the morning and then home. It will be normal preparation – with lots of present opening on Christmas Day.”last_img read more

Mauricio Pochettino a target for Chelsea? ‘He’s worked wonders with Tottenham’, former Blues goalkeeper tells talkSPORT

first_imgMauricio Pochettino has emerged as a leading candidate to take over as manager of Chelsea, but former Blues goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has told talkSPORT that Tottenham should fight for their boss.Reports on Wednesday have claimed the Argentine coach is one of five names, along with the likes of Diego Simeone and Didier Deschamps, on Chelsea’s shortlist to replace interim boss Guus Hiddink.Pochettino has impressed in his two seasons in the White Hart Lane hotseat, transforming Spurs into potential Premier League title contenders with his attacking ethos and focus on the development of young players.His methods and manner, which is in stark contrast to axed manager Jose Mourinho’s harsh nature, are thought to appeal to Chelsea as they search for their next long-term chief.And, when asked about the rumours, ex-Blues glovesman Bosnich told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “Pochettino is hot property, everyone has seen what he’s done with Spurs.“Tottenham were a side that looked fine when everything was going well for them, but when it started raining, metaphorically, they’d go under. But he stopped that.“I still think they’ve got an outside chance for the title as well, so they’d be very wise to keep him.”last_img read more
