Benzema slows Jovic

first_imgWith the Dominican called off, the question is whether he will bet on Benzema. If you don’t risk, Jovic will be the only option (with Rodrygo’s permission). The Serbian would have the option of claiming (He only has one goal in the League against Leganés). The Hispanic-Dominican seeks to take minutes in what is being his first season in Spain. Benzema’s responsibilityThe greatest weight of the scoring aspect lies with Benzema (he has 16 goals). The Frenchman has scored ten more than his pursuer: Rodrygo (6). Not even the midfielder revolution can beat Karim. Modric, Kroos, Casemiro and Valverde are taking gallons in terms of so many made. Among them they made 13 goals and contribute 26% of the team’s weight in the scoring facet. The only player who was fully available earlier this week was Mariano. Jovic dragged discomfort from an annoying chafing on one foot. Also, Benzema continued to recover from a fibrillar microrroture. But yesterday, the Serbian already trained normally and, in addition, Karim completed a good part of the session with the group. The Frenchman has trained on the list instead of Mariano. Benzema is here. The importance of Karim (makes 32% of Real Madrid goals) is vital. To date, he has played 90.17% of the minutes. Although he returns from his fibrillar microrroture lesion, the Frenchman points to ownership.last_img read more

With Abelardo the permanence accounts go well

Check out the team, now that he has finally won at Cornellà. And he counts the fans, looking again and again at the calendar in search of a magic formula that makes him see the light of permanence. To everyone’s joy, even the most pessimistic, the accounts come out for the first time throughout the season.The ‘guilty’ of such a turn is none other than Abelardo Fernández, obviously boosted by the goals of Raúl de Tomás. Five days brings the coach to the front of Espanyol, in which only five teams have added more (Real Madrid, Getafe, Villarreal, Barcelona and Valencia) in a LaLiga classification in which the parakeets would be sixth, with eight points, by six from Celta, five from Leganés and three from Mallorca, its direct rivals in this relentless struggle for salvation. A sixth virtual place, Europa League positions, which contrasts with the red lantern that it occupied in the previous days, with such distance from its rivals that it still maintains it today. elevenReal society6 4Barcelona10 twentyAthletic Club3 12Pomegranate6 3Villarreal10 14Seville5 16Osasuna5center_img In any case, and as it is logical, it will be difficult for Espanyol to maintain a score index as high as the one it has achieved so far Abelardo, who gets 53 percent of the points in Game. In a full season, that would mean ending it with 60. In fact it is about more than triple what his predecessor, Pablo Machín averaged, who added five points in ten days, what would be 19 in a full league. And a little better, although not much, was the baggage of the first coach of the course, David Gallego, since he brought those five points together in eight days.

If the current projection is maintained in the remaining 15 days, I would end up adding 24 more points, that is, that LaLiga would end with 42 points, that is, saved. And with slack. Because in its trend of these last five days, Celta for example would accumulate 18 more points until reaching 38, Leganés would get another 15 and conclude the course with 33, while Mallorca would only add another nine, to finish with 27.

Munir stops have given Malaga eight points

first_imgMunir Mohand Mohamedi, (Melilla, May 10, 1989) is being life insurance for Malaga in a season especially complicated by poor planning sponsored by the horrific president / tweeter Abdullah Al Thani. Munir remained as the only goalkeeper with a professional record and on the three occasions he had to go with Morocco he was replaced by Kellyan (against Almería and Cádiz) and Gonzalo (against Alcorcón). All three games ended in defeat.The international was called by a part of the fans the day he made a big mistake against Mirandés that cost a goal and the loss of two points. An isolated fact.

It will not be easy because his problems with the salary limit force him to have to get rid of assets to be able to balance the accounts and that LaLiga agrees to enroll the club in his competitions on the dreaded July 31. A lot of work for the judicial administrator, José María Muñoz, to correct all the backstage trips by the Al Thani family in this process of decline and madness in which they have submitted to the club during all this time.

“Football generates € 4.1 billion in taxes and you have to consider it”

first_imgJosé Guerra is the second authority in LaLiga after occupying the position left by Javier Gómez. He attends to AS by telephone in an interview that began last Thursday and was updated yesterday, since the events (and announcements) follow one another with almost no time to assimilate them.LaLiga delivered a report to the clubs analyzing how to share any losses with the players. Later, the employer’s association urged ERTE and AFE criticized it. Why did they make that statement in the middle of the negotiations?Because the Delegate Commission, last Friday, after analyzing the situation in an exercise of responsibility necessary to preserve a sector that represents 1.37% of GDP and employs about 185,000 people, considered that it should urge affiliates to start ERTE from reduction of working hours due to force majeure.LaLiga manages that there could be up to 957 million losses if no more is played and that footballers should take over almost 50%. Isn’t that an exaggeration? AFE puts the ceiling at 20%.As we have said on other occasions, LaLiga contemplates a scenario for the end of the competitions. However, logically it works in the analysis of the impact of the situation under different scenarios and, for each one, its impact.Does the step taken by LaLiga announce many more ERTE? Those of Barça, Espanyol and Alavés have just been made official.The ERTE to reduce working hours due to force majeure is the mechanism that, under current circumstances, LaLiga recommends to its associates.AFE calculated that in total the ERTE would be 9 clubs out of 42. What is your estimate?Each club has to make its own decision, but the Executive Committee considers that it is the best option now.Today they meet again despite the positions being far apart. What will they be seen for?A multitude of meetings are being held with different organizations at the national and international levels, forming part of the commission created ad hoc for UEFA, and they will continue to be able to advance on the best path.The Government is proposing measures for society. Does football also expect these specific aids, including through a Royal Decree, beyond those already provided to companies and workers?An athlete, a soccer player, is a worker, but with certain singularities … This specificity is what is being sought to be reflected in the different measures that the Government is promoting.It does not seem popular that a club with benefits turns to ERTE and that millionaire footballers can benefit from state aid. Is there demagoguery or is this vision understood?In my opinion, you have to dig deeper into the numbers when talking about professional football. This industry is generating direct, indirect and induced work to more than 185,000 many people and generates more than 4,100 million in taxes. The amounts withheld by the clubs from footballers for personal income tax purposes are very high: close to 3,000 million. The contribution to the state coffers is very important and must be taken into consideration. Will the Economic Control, which has given such a good result, be modified after this crisis?Not at the beginning. Precisely the clubs, when they endowed themselves with this rule, what they were looking for was to make entities financially sustainable. At the moment that objective is even more valid and is even more valid. It has to continue to be applied more than ever.Where will the effects of this catastrophe affect the most?The financial situation is going to be affected in all companies. Not only Spanish, but European and world. We are facing a global effect.The current salary limits will also be modified …Clear. It will affect us all. And football is no stranger.The clubs have won nothing more than ever in transfers, € 1,018M. How will the market change? More barter and less millionaires?It is possible, yes. We will see it soon. It has to affect this exceptional situation. Clubs will have to look for new alternatives in which to obtain the resources they need within their capacity, so there may be more transfers or transfers for lower amounts. It is difficult to foresee it now.Debts with the Treasury were reduced to a minimum. Is there a risk of returning to the old ways?The figure is around € 50M. There is no risk: the fiscal and tax issue is highly protected with the Economic Control.Before the virus, there were clubs with problems. Are they more dangerous?Economic standards are going to run their course. We will apply them the same. Those clubs will have to work and adjust more. But you have to look at the data with optimism.Tell me how …In the 12-13 season, the clubs other than Madrid and Barça had a net worth of 18.5 million; less than 0.5 per club. Today, they have 1,060 million equity; more than 60 each. This means that its ability to face an exceptional situation like this is much greater and more solvent than it was seven years ago.There is a lot of dependence on television income. What percentage, on average, do they assume in the budgets?They are 34% on average. But it is very dispersed: there are clubs that depend a lot on their budgets (in some cases it exceeds 80%) and others much less.However, some have a more diversified income. Will the crisis affect the adults more than the children?The key is that now what is being affected is the consumption of museums, restaurants, shops, T-shirt sales … Those clubs that have a lot of income from these concepts will be affected.Does LaLiga, as an institution, also meditate on cuts in its workforce and, especially in senior management, or even an ERTE?As it is happening in almost all of society. LaLiga’s objective is to revive the competition. And we need to use all the resources. We hope to have a stable situation for our clubs as soon as possible. So LaLiga is not exempt or isolated from the effects that the rest may have.last_img read more

Sagnol reveals that Bayern rejected Varane in 2011

first_imgThis is recognized by Willy Sagnol, current coach, who wore the clothing of the Bavarian team and who was also a defense. The Frenchman explained what happened through the following statements granted to the German media Fussball Transfers: “One day a friend called me and said, ‘You have to take a look at a super interesting young man. Immediately, I saw how mature Varane was. When I passed everything to the club, they told me it was still too expensive for a young man. 18 years old. Two months later, Varane went to Madrid for 10 million. ‘”This story occurred in the midst of rebuilding Bayern, after Louis van Gaal’s project failed. The Munich club gave the team controls to Heynckes, precursor of signings such as Rafinha Alcántara, Manuel Neuer … or Jerome Boateng, in the end, replacement for the ill-fated incorporation of Varane. 50 million was spent by Bayern in that market. Judging by the level the French central defender has reached at Real Madrid, perhaps more than one have questioned that decision. There are times when small gestures can have unimaginable consequences in the future. Acts that seem insignificant but that, with the passage of time, it becomes clear that they should not have been overlooked. Something like this has happened to Bayern Munich with Raphael Varane.The French central defender of Real Madrid has been in the elite for years. Forming, along with his teammate and captain, Sergio Ramos, the undisputed duo that season after season governs the defense of the white team. Nevertheless, history could change a lot in 2011, when he changed to French Lens for the Santiago Bernabéu team. And is that The German champion was very close to making his transfer that same year.last_img read more
