Milan is in Barcelona to close the signing of Todibo

first_imgToo many circumstances that push the club to think that it is best for Todibo to go out and see the world, play in an elite team such as the legendary Milan where it will have pressure, but it can also measure its limits. Barça and Milan could announce an agreement imminently. At the moment, the player did not enter the list of summoned Ernesto Valverde for the game this Saturday at 9:00 pm at the RCDE Stadium against Espanyol. As confirmed by As, emissaries of Milan are in Barcelona since Friday night to try to close the signing of Jean-Clair Todibo. In principle, the French player, who turned 20 on December 30, It will be transferred in the direction of San Siro, but the conditions of the operation have yet to be established. In any case, Barça will always have options to recover the player.Landed only a year ago in Barcelona from Toulouse as one of the most promising central European football (Barça won the race to Juventus), the causes of Todibo’s departure are several. To get started, the Frenchman is not having minutes and for a young man in progression that is a deficit. But there is more. The club is aware that the player has a high soccer potential, but its adaptation to Barcelona, ​​due to an accumulation of circumstances, has not been the best. This has been detected by Barça technicians and also by those of the French Federation. His protagonism in the selections has not gone to more, but on the contrary.last_img read more

first_imgNaples conquered the pass to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup beating 2-0 at Perugia in San Paolo. It is the third triumph of the Neapolitans in almost three months in all competitions, the second of the Gattuso era. The southerners, who had a series B team in front and played at San Paolo (which is still very quiet due to the ultras’ strike), obviously dominated the confrontation, but Cosmi’s were tactically ordered and did not grant him many occasions.‘Ringhio’ made rotations and started out with Lozano instead of Callejón: the Mexican, combining with Llorente, forced the 1-0 penalty, signed by Insigne. The Neapolitan, before the break, marked another maximum penalty, this time granted by a clear hand of Iemmello: the tip of the visitors, in the discount of the first half, wasted the opportunity to put theirs back in the game, failing a penalty struck with the help of the VAR by another hand, this time from Hysaj. Ospina neutralized it, which canceled the serious mistake caused by the defeat against Lazio on Saturday. With the game already sentenced, the second part had little history, and will be remembered for the premiere of Demme, first Diego to wear the shirt azzurra since the goodbye of Maradona.

Atlético asked for two penalties and the expulsion of Eraso

first_imgAtlético-Leganés who had to push forward Mateu Lahoz had a lot to whistle. The rojiblanco team, without going any further, claimed two penalties and one expulsion. Simeone requested the red for Eraso for a hard tackle on Lodi, and it was the Argentine coach who ended up being reprimanded. For Iturralde González, referee of the SER and As, the Leganés player had to be sent off by Mateu Lahoz. “That is red, very red. It goes with the straight leg, does not remove it … You get it wrong and you make a break in the knee because the leg is used almost as a weapon, ”explains Iturralde. Eraso only saw the yellow one. Afterwards, the mattresses asked for a penalty on Vitolo. The canary dribbled in the area to Recio, who went to the ground and there was contact. For Iturralde it is not enough for Mateu to give penalty. “It is not a penalty. Live is a very fast action, but it is Vitolo who seeks contact when the defense is on the ground, ”he says. Atlético later claimed another maximum penalty, this time on Felipe when the center was going to finish off in the area and it seems that Recio touches him on the foot. Iturralde is also clear that it is not enough for the maximum penalty. “There is nothing, it is he who hits the ground,” says the referee.The match ended with Cuéllar, Leganés goalkeeper, sent off. Mateu took the second yellow for wasting time. The goal, which already had a card, was playing with fire. “The Leganés goalkeeper receives the ball from the ball boy and returns it,” explains Iturralde which also observes the goalkeeper as the culprit of the tangana that took place later. “The fault of everything is the unfortunate attitude of Cuéllar. It has taken four minutes to leave the field after the expulsion ”, sentence.last_img read more

The CSD, one step away from postponing elections in the Federation

first_imgCasillas’ candidacy wants to wait first to see how events unfold and how the Higher Sports Council reacts. Several experts consulted in the electoral processes in sport, mostly jurists, assure that this hypothetical request for the postponement would have all the options to prosper since it would be the most logical scenario and that, even, it would not have to be only a step to take in soccer, but in all the federations of territorial or national scope. In fact, yesterday the Andalusian Basketball Federation made public the cancellation of their elections until the social panorama improves. A decision that Irene Lozano is one step away from making with the RFEF before the advance of the coronavirus and the state of alarm decreed by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez.It would only be in the event that the CSD did not pronounce itself, when Casillas would ask for an audience to put this issue on the table once again, in the previous meetings with Irene Lozano, his requests for electoral delay were not met. By then, Casillas would already know if the Euro Cup and even the Olympic Games and various World Cups of various specialties, which were so tight on the deadlines, could have already been officially suspended. That and the fact that even the regional elections in Galicia and the Basque Country, for example, are on the wire and at this time it is debated when to hold them, it would make his wish that the duel with Rubiales scheduled for June be delayed a few more months not at all unreasonable. “You have to talk to a lot of people, there are 23,000 people who have to choose the 139 members of the Assembly who will vote for the president, and you have to travel Spain from end to end to speak to all levels with some trips and through some meetings that it will not be possible to do in a long time … “, assures one of Casillas’ partners in this battle that, although it is not yet known that copper is being fought in his name, he will soon announce it. Luis Rubiales was asked last Thursday in Las Rozas by the media about the presidential elections that are to be held in June. Especially in case this coronavirus crisis could change the process deadlines. The President of the Federation, appealing to caution and responsibility, was blunt: “I have nothing planned. I am concerned about the problem of the coronavirus. At the administration level, it remains 100% and the elections are an administrative act. We are going to focus in the coronavirus. Depending on the scenario, we’ll see what happens. ” Nevertheless, That possibility of the elections being affected is gaining weight after the last two days, in which the national problem has increased and the state of alarm has had to be decreed with very strict rules for all the autonomous communities without exception.The environment of Casillas, which is not only reduced as at the beginning of his pre-candidacy to his representative, his promoters and his closest collaborators, but also extends to the territorial presidents, coaches and players who have already given him this month in private their informal vote of confidence, they recognize off the record what They are encouraging him to ask for a postponement of the electoral process when the time is right. That movement could arrive in a matter of days, predictably on March 25, which is when Luis Rubiales had planned to resign as president on a protocol basis to open the electoral process, and especially when the general mood tempers a little and lowers the current state of panic over the pandemic that is punishing Spain and Europe. Taking a step now may seem selfish and unsympathetic. CSD sources have assured Ace that “the only priority for Irene Lozano, Secretary of State for Sport, at this moment is health. How could it be otherwise, the alert state will prevail over all other things, including the elections to the Federation “.last_img read more

“UEFA begins to recognize that football is no longer possible this season”

first_imgVan Ranst goes further and considers that it is still too early to talk about dates, he even warns that football will be far from restarting. “How can you talk about downsizing and restarting the competition if we don’t even know if we are on top of the first peak? Soccer is the most important secondary problem in the world. But we must be honest: massive events like soccer games or music festivals will be among the last things we allow again“The UEFA threatened the Belgian Federation and the Jupiler League that if they went ahead with the suspension, Belgium teams could be excluded from European competitions. On April 15, a hearing is scheduled for Belgian football to defend its decision against UEFA. Van Ranst will be present assessing, as a specialist, the consequences of starting football in the short term. Marc van Ranst is a Belgian virologist and professor at the Leuven University. In addition, serving as an advisor to the Jupiler Pro League in the COVID-19 crisisHis reputable opinion allows him to remain in direct contact with UEFA to help him assess the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.“I have the impression that UEFA is starting to see that playing football is no longer possible this season”, has admitted Van Ranst in statements collected by the Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad.The doctor next week has a telematic hearing with the body, chaired by Aleksandr Ceferin, to support the Belgian league in its decision to definitively suspend the competition. “The peak of infections is far from being reduced. No one can blame the Belgian clubs for making that decision. The Pro League understood that a minimum of three to four weeks of training will be required before matches are possible again. So it is not realistic to finish current competitions“says the Belgian specialist.last_img read more
