Ramos and Benzema rush to get to Sevilla

first_imgFor its part, Benzema, who in the penultimate training was part of the session with the group, also exercised normally. The Frenchman, who missed the Super Cup tournament in Arabia when he suffered a fibrillar microrrotura during the match against Getafe on January 4, opts to return to the title against the Sevilla players. Precisely, a goal of his in the first round meeting meant the triumph of those of Zidane against those of Lopetegui. With his return, Zizou would be relieved of his problem in attack, since Jovic is also recovered from a rash that occurred in Jeddah. The big victim on this occasion would be Mariano, who after playing in the Super Cup, would fall back into ostracism. Sergio Ramos and Benzema were the two best news of Real Madrid in the last training before Real Madrid receives Sevilla (Saturday 18, 4:00 p.m., Movistar LaLIga). The two players exercised at the same pace as the rest of their teammates, so it will be Zidane who decides if they are summoned and finally play against Sevilla. Those who are totally discarded to face Julen Lopetegui’s team are Marco Asensio and Hazard, who continue with their recovery processes, respectively.center_img For Sergio Ramos, the encounter with his former team is always something special, and more since the last controversies that took place at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium. The captain, who was injured in the final of the Supercup last 12 (sprained his ankle in a fortuitous set with Morata) participated in the typical rounds and in the races that Dupont commands. Of course, it showed a huge blue strip of kinesio tape on his right leg. These strips are used to treat muscle injuries (tears, contractures …), sprains, etc., but the camero made no gesture during the session.last_img read more

Malaga clings to its fortress in La Rosaleda

first_imgDespite these numbers, the good performance of Malaga as a local comes from further back. The blue and whites add eight straight games without knowing defeat at home, in which he has won four wins and four draws. 16 points of 24.The last time Málaga lost at home was on October 26, three and a half months ago. And he did it before Cádiz (1-2). Since then La Rosaleda has been impregnable. And to that strength as a local Malaga is seized to progress in the classification. The blue and white team was penultimate after the visit of Cadiz to Martiricos on day 11 and currently occupies the seventeenth position. This progression also has protagonists at the individual level. The level of players like Antoñín or Sadiku in these months has been decisive. EI Málaga has recovered the smile. And he has done it in the heat of La Rosaleda. The situation remains delicate, but under Sergio Pellicer’s tutelage the team has added eight points out of 15 possible and maintains a two-point mattress on the relegation points, one more than when the club dismissed Víctor Sánchez del Amo. Of those eight points, seven have arrived in La Rosaleda. Two victories and a draw against Mirandés in a match that Málaga had to win make up the blue and white balance at home with Pellicer in command. The team has added 12 points as a visitorThe life of Malaga at home is another story. Málaga won in Santander on the first day of the League. But then he has only added nine points as a visitor. Their numbers far from La Rosaleda are quite discreet, having garnered a total of 12 points in 13 home matches. In his 12 starts he has achieved two victories (against Racing de Santander and Deportivo), six draws (Mirandés, Zaragoza, Numancia, Extremadura, Oviedo and Fuenlabrada) and also six defeats (Girona, Albacete, Huesca, Ponferradina, Alcorcón and Elche). Despite these records, there are up to five Second Division teams that have added fewer points than Malaga as visitors at this point.

Alarm: Hazard, injured in the ankle for which he was discharged

first_imgIn the next few hours you will be tested for the extent of the injury and know if you can be available to Zidane for this decisive week. However, the Belgian pain gestures do not allow to be very optimistic. Misfortune is reprimanded with Hazard on that ankle. The Belgian played in the Ciutat de Valencia his second consecutive game after recovering from the perimaleolar microfissure he had suffered on November 27 before the PSG and for which he was three months off. 7 Hazard has blown the alarms at Real Madrid. The Belgian midfielder left the pitch limping in the 67th minute of the match against Levante. As soon as he reached the bench, ice was applied to his right ankle. The preoccupation in Madrid is maximum, as Zidane demonstrated when addressing the Belgian to be interested in his physical state, since Within four days Manchester City visits Santiago Bernabéu and in a week will receive the leader of LaLiga, Barcelona. The coach himself was clear at the end of the match: “It doesn’t look good about Eden. It’s more than a blow, and also where he has his injury.”last_img read more

What became of Maniche?

first_imgTo remember Maniche solely for his time at Atlético de Madrid would be an understatement. Portuguese dressed the red and white jersey for two and a half seasons, with half an intermediate course at Inter Milan after a great confrontation with Javier Aguirre, by then mattress technician and left the team separated by indiscipline. The irregularity marked Maniche’s stage in Spain, leaving droppers samples of a quality that in 2004 had served him to become one of the best midfielders in the world.Because such praise is not an exaggeration. Portuguese was a key piece for Porto to become champion of the Champions by Mourinho and for your selection to reach the final of the Eurocup where she started as an amphitheater. A wayward footballer, who needed an environment and a tailor-made coach to perform, but when he got his best version he was a fantastic player. With ability to command in the middle, distribution of the game, covering a lot of field, working in the recovery, managing the game long and with a fantastic arrival in the rival area. Currently, he has not separated from football, as he is the ambassador of FIFA and UEFA and is a television commentator.FRANCK FIFE & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Maniche celebrates a goal in the Champions League with Porto.FRANCK FIFE (AFP) Beginnings and turbulent exit of BenficaNuno Ricardo de Oliveira Ribeiro (November 11, 1977), his real name, began his sports career at Benfica at age nine, the great team from his native Lisbon alongside Sporting, where he would retire. The footballer collected the nickname of Maniche from his physical resemblance, with long hair included, which evoked the figure of Michael Manniche, a Danish center forward who played for Benfica between 1983 and 1987 and who won two leagues and three cups in the Lisbon team. Maniche, who had been rising step by step since childhood, debuted with the Eagles’ first team in UEFA on September 12, 1995 at the age of 17.His precocity led him to look for a club where he could accumulate experience. The humble Alverca, a Benfica satellite, took over his services for three seasons, beginning to demonstrate his abilities to channel the team’s game and his arrival from the second line. His good level led Benfica to recover the player in the 1999-00 season, where he scored 12 goals among all competitions, coming to play second striker. Powerful long shot, ability to step on the area where the defense did not expect and a lot of intelligence in the auction. His good level led him in the following season to ask for a raise. In the push and pull with Benfica, His rival for the title, Porto, appeared to reach an agreement with the player. An operation that the lisboetas took to the courts and that in their maximum anger caused Maniche to go to Benfica B until he decided to renew, which did not happen.Explosion in PortoOn his arrival at the dragons, without any payment for the transfer, he coincided with José Mourinho, the coach who marked his career. “Maniche only plays well with me because I know how to understand him” the technician declared. After a first season in which he scored nine goals in 44 games, his great year came, the academic year 2003-04. Porto began the Champions League with the intention of playing a good role after win the league, the portuguese cup and UEFA (beating Celtic in overtime) in a fantastic year, but nobody expected it to go beyond eighths, where it crossed Manchester United. However, the 2-1 victory at Porto was followed by a draw to one at Old Trafford that served the Portuguese team into the quarters. A team that sent for its strength in midfield with Maniche together with Deco generating game and contributing a lot of goal and with Costinha from behind acting as a stopper.JOSE MANUEL RIBEIRO & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Maniche kisses the Champions after defeating Monaco.JOSE MANUEL RIBEIRO (REUTERS) In quarters, Porto passed over the Olympique Lyon (overall 4-2) and Deportivo was measured in the semifinals. A zero draw in Portugal and the Portuguese victory in Coruña by 0-1 led Porto to the final and ended the great dream of the Galician team, who experienced a surreal expulsion to Jorge Andrade in the first leg. In the final it was Monaco, the executioner of Madrid, who suffered the power of Mourinho’s team. A spectacular 3-0 that gave the Champions to the dragons, again champions in league.Not content with that, in the summer of 2004 Maniche became a benchmark in the Portuguese team. A team that it had Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Carvalho… for the Eurocopa that played at home and where Maniche was apparently going to be a second sword. But he became indisputable in the middle and beyond the goal against Russia in groups, qualified Portugal for the final with an extraordinary goal in the semifinals against the Netherlands that slipped through the entire squad after a short corner kick. Finally, Greece took the title and left Portugal with honey on her lips. FRANCOIS GUILLOT & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Portugal bested the Netherlands in the Euro Cup semifinals with a goal by Maniche’s squad.FRANCOIS GUILLOT (AFP) Departure from PortoAfter a last season in Porto without Mourinho on the bench, Dynamo Moscow paid 16 million for its services. In Russia he played only half a season before Mourinho claimed his services to Chelsea on loan. In the Premier League he crossed out his First major league on the map and lifted the Premier League title. Although it had been almost two years at a lower level than the Euro Cup, in the World Cup in Germany a great version of Maniche appeared again. Again it was the executioner of Holland, in this case in eighths, getting the only goal of the match. Holder throughout the tournament, Portugal fell in the semifinals against France with a solitary goal from Zidane’s penalty.Land at AtléticoHis great tournament led Atlético to take over his services for 9 million. The rojiblanco team had been interested in Maniche for several summers, but it wasn’t until 2006 that they got it. As the rojiblanco, the dominant midfielder of years ago could not be seen and interspersed pills of his troubled talent for his strong character, in addition to a fame that accompanied him for being too nocturnal. Although he was not the best Maniche, he consolidated himself as a starter in the same course where they had landed on the banks of the Manzanares also his ex-partners Costinha and Seitaridis, without meeting any of them expectations.PHILIPPE DESMAZES & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Maniche, during a match with Atlético.PHILIPPE DESMAZES (AFP)center_img Maniche today.@maniche_official In his first season he did four goals in 30 games. However, in his second year, still being an important piece in the eleven, he had a direct confrontation with coach Javier Aguirre who It led him to leave on loan to Inter Milan after seeing six consecutive games from the stands by decision of the Mexican. Thus, Maniche played in England, Spain and Italy in just three seasons. On his return from Inter, where he won Serie A, the midfielder was again important in an Atlético that with Forlán and Agüero returned to the Champions League. In their first match in the top European competition after so many years absent, the Atletico team won 0-3 on their visit to PSV with a goal by Maniche himself in addition to Kun’s double.But since March he did not have a participation with the team again, showing his bad relationship with Abel Resino, who he called the worst coach of his career and in April he was fined 50,000 euros and removed from the team with Seitaridis for not attending Atlético-Sporting, something mandatory for all players despite not being called. He did not put on the Atlético shirt again before set course for the colony and he stayed 16 games away from having a plate in the Wanda Metropolitano.Withdrawal in PortugalManiche played 30 games and scored two goals for the German team before returning to Portugal for a final year of his career at Sporting, Benfica’s greatest rival. At the end of that 2010-11 season (27 games and four goals), the midfielder hung up his boots. In his trunk of memories was a historic Champions League with Porto, where the best Maniche was seen, the participation in the three great teams of Portugal, his name in the Russian, English, Spanish, Italian and German league, and the league titles in Porto, Chelsea and Inter, a baggage that few players can boast. Currently Maniche, who was physically compared to actor Jim Carrey, He is an ambassador for FIFA, UEFA and is a television commentator in Portugal. In addition, he has published a book with his memories as an elite athlete, ‘Maniche 18’, the number that accompanied him for much of his career. A book that reviews his career and where several of the great players with whom he shared costumes participate: Deco, Cristiano, Figo, Casillas, Torres or the technicians Mourinho, Scolari and Villas Boas. A player who confronted his talent and character and who left almost the same great football moments with anecdotes and confrontations against technicians who tried to tame him without success. If at Atlético his role as Mr. Hyde was seen more, at Porto, Dr. Jekyll left his name etched in the history of the club.last_img read more
