Sevilla gives priority to Leganés for Gil, although his departure is difficult

first_imgThe departure of En Nesyri to Seville (sale in the form of a transfer for the value of its clause, 20 million euros) could leave Leganés a positive consequence in the current winter market. The Hispanics have promised that Lega will have preference in the transfer of Bryan Gil if the young Andalusian left winger (18 years old) leaves the entity of Pizjuán from here to next February 1.The point is that, right now, there is no forecast that Bryan Gil leaves Seville. For that to happen, the rojiblancos should sign a forward that can occupy the left end, matter in which Monchi is engaged. It will not be simple. The sports director wants this potential reinforcement to imply a leap in quality in the squad, but not in the coffers, precisely limited after the signing of En Nesyri. Names like Swiss Shaqiri or German Draxler have rumbled in the headlines. Both more as assignments than as transfers. In any case, major words. A difficulty that infects the Gil case and, therefore, makes his departure from Pizjuán complicated, regardless of the destination.In Butarque they look for extreme since before In Nesyri they packed their bags for the AVE Madrid – Seville. Among the options that the cucumber club has handled, there has always been that of the Hispanic youth squad, although the constant refusals of Seville on his departure made other alternatives go around without forgetting Gil. The accelerated sale of En Nesyri has reopened this possibility that now depends on what Sevilla does to boost its front and that would fit the profile of what the Leganés is looking for: a young footballer, with ambition and self-confidence capable of generating overflow and mutate the drawing of a campus built only to compete under 5-3-2.last_img read more

Ferreyra: the ordeal of the wrong bet of ‘nine’

first_imgThe striker has only finished seven times in LaLiga in the 536 minutes he has played, while other batters such as Jonathan Calleri (28 shots in 1226 minutes), Raúl de Tomás (15 pitches in 360 minutes) or Wu Lei (19 shots in 951 minutes) significantly outperform him.With the elimination in the Europa League in the absence of the return and after the resounding 4-0 of the first leg, the situation of Ferreyra has signs of getting worse from here to the end of the championship. For Abelardo Fernández is the fourth forward. The player, with one of the highest salaries of the squad, will end his assignment in June and return to Benfica. A signing without performance. Before the Rubi case exploded in Espanyol, which ended up with the coach coming out the back door to Seville, there was a long and tended talk about Facundo Ferreyra in the planning of the next course. With Borja Iglesias (who had already agreed to a clause of only 28 million) in the shop window, the Argentine forward had arrived in January to be the future nine of Espanyol. But Rubi didn’t have them all with her. He had barely aligned him (209 minutes) in four months and believed that he could not be the replacement for Galician in case of sale. Then the coach left. David Gallego arrived. And Ferreyra was nine. The investment was made by Matías Vargas, one extreme, and not by a forward.Nine months after that earthquake in May and after investing 21 million in Raúl de Tomás, the Argentine forward has participated in 1,258 minutes between Liga, Copa and Europa League, scoring eight goals (six of them in the previous one), but his upward trajectory in the team broke down just when Eibar scored on day 4 its only goal in the domestic competition. He was injured and went into a bit. Since then, he has only participated in eight league games, three starts. He has not scored and has barely generated danger. Used to play within the area and lacking confidence, Ferreyra goes unnoticed in most games. In Wolverhampton he had the clearest chance that Rui Patricio stopped, while then he touched 23 other balls in different areas of the field, only one in the area.last_img read more

“What has not changed in Elche is the intensity of its game”

first_imgAs the season progressed, Jorge Cordero, who signed me and then was the sports director, called me to tell me that they wanted to renew and extend my contract. Then, when everything changed, my representative was told that they didn’t count on me. Nothing happens, I was always calm. He played in an entity similar to Elche, in Salamanca. I terminated my contract and the Numancia option appeared, where I am now happy.Did someone explain the reasons?No, it was all through my agent. With Pacheta I did not have the opportunity to speak. On Sunday I will see him and, like the rest of the companions who are still in Second B, who are many, I will be very happy to greet you again.Do you keep in touch with the Elche costumes?The one he talked to the most was Gonzalo Villar, who left transferred. I am very happy for him because these opportunities change your life and cannot be missed.The Elche de Pacheta, is it very different from the one you met in the year of the ascent to Second?Then we played Sory Kaba a lot, to take advantage of the speed of the extremes like Josan, Collantes or Iván Sánchez. Now it is a team to take it more from behind and do it less in length. What does remain unchanged is the intensity and desire that the team imposes on each ball.Do you consider Elche a direct rival in the fight for promotion promotion?Elche is in a different league than Numancia. We aspire to maintain the category and add 50 points. Now we have several days without winning, but we remain halfway up (they are ninth). That means we are doing things right.But Elche also maintains that this is its objective: the 50 points.Yes, but Elche has a bigger budget and players with great potential who aspire to be up.Finally, do you expect a good reception?Of course. I gave everything I had in Elche. I played 20 official matches, which is not bad for an U23 player. I felt one more of that season of the ascent and now I wish you the best, it cannot be otherwise. Iván Calero (Madrid, 1994) will once again step on illicit lands. In this case, as a rival. He does it without rancor and grateful for the opportunity that Elche gave him to return to Spain. It happens to be one of the best laterals of Second, after Nico Rodriguez gave him the freedom letter in summer.Go back to Martínez Valero considered one of the best lateral rights in the category. A few months after your goodbye, how do you feel?The first thing I must say is that I am happy to return to Elche. There I lived a very good year, personally and collectively. We achieved promotion to the Second Division and I am very grateful to the three coaches I had: Vicente Mir, Josico and Pacheta.Elche was the club where it was converted to the side …Yes, with Vicente Mir (he already did it with Bernat in the Mestalla). I used to act as an extreme on the left wing and the injury of Gabriel Corozo, who was right back, offered me the option to play there. I recognize that at first I did not dominate the defensive concepts and we had to apply patience. In the end, I got it and now I’m happy occupying this demarcation.Did it hurt that Elche did not give him the opportunity to return to the team after his excellent season in Second Division B with Salamanca?last_img read more

first_imgAn injury has made him disappear from AtléticoChidiac is not having any luck this season. The Australian, one of the great promises of her country that is celebrating its second season of rojiblanco, had a major ankle injury that has had almost the entire season in the dry dock: “I had to take care of the mental part and go through physical rehabilitation for the first time. It is not easy to see everyone play week after week, especially since our girls have done very well in the Champions League,” he explained. “There have been many games and opportunities that I have missed this year, but I think I have learned a lot from knowing what it is like to be injured and how to be a better teammate without playing,” he said.

Mike Tyson’s cannabis company could sponsor Everton

first_imgNow Swissx has taken advantage to succeed SportPesa. “They contacted me and have already offered me designs with all the Swissx logo in blue, something I do not like, but it will look goodDavid said, adding: “When I first came to England, everyone supported Manchester United and Liverpool, and everyone was wearing red. I liked the blue and I liked the shield, so I selected Everton to support it. It is a kind of mystique ”.Swissx is owned by former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson and Greek billionaire Alki David.. In a recent interview with the BBC, he claimed that his brand “is not a brand of marijuana, it is a brand of CBD (Cannabidiol) based on health, not fun.” CBD is a natural component of cannabis, but unlike THC, it has no psychoactive or psychotropic effects. Therefore, it does not produce the “stone” effect. “The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and other major sports leagues accept it,” concludes David. The cannabis company Swissx, which belongs to famous boxer Mike Tyson, is having talks with Everton to seal a sponsorship deal.. This was confirmed by the CEO of the company, Alki David, in an interview with the Insider.com portal. To reach a good port, would be the first deal for a Premier League team with a cannabis company.Some days ago, FC Barcelona had to deny the information that had emerged about the possibility that Swissx was negotiating with the Catalan club to name the Camp Nou. “I am not leaving Barça, I am keeping the door open,” said David, “but now we are committed to Everton to take over his shirt.” The brand, according to the CEO, would appear on the front of the kit.SportPesa, the current jersey sponsor of the Merseyside County club, agreed in February to terminate his contract., therefore, from next season, the ‘toffees’ will have a new sponsor. The club’s statement at the time said that it had been “a difficult decision”, but that it would allow them to better fulfill their “business plan and take advantage of new opportunities”That were presented to them. This agreement, according to the club itself, has allowed it to grow its footprint in Africa and “further strengthen” its relationship with the continent.last_img read more
