The Osasuna manager says he did not draw up Flefield’s contract

first_imgThe former financial director and current manager of Osasuna, Ángel Ardanaz, has denied that it was he who prepared the contract for the Flefield company with which the club justified the cash mismatch of 1.4 million euros at the end of the 2013/2014 season , ensuring that it seemed “strange” that this payment was made per box.Ardanaz has testified at the trial against six former directors of Osasuna, three former Betis players and two real estate agents accused of crimes of misappropriation, corporate, false business document, falsification of annual accounts and sports corruption for the supposed match size.During your statement He stressed that former Angel Vizcay “has lied” by ensuring that it was he who drew up this contract and He indicated in this regard that at the time this document was delivered to the auditor, Adolfo Suárez, he was on vacation.He pointed out that the first time he saw this contract was when he was requested in a future audit, already after Vizcay left, and that he located it on the former manager’s computer, ensuring that he had never accessed this equipment before and this time he did it with a password that he had left behind.

“Paco López is a very transgressor and the criticized self-management of Del Bosque, a modernity”

first_imgAlfredo Santaelena, Quique Estebaranz, Vivar Dorado and Nano Rivas This Sunday they participated in a gathering organized by the coaching school of the Royal Madrid Football Federation (RFFM) and moderated by journalist Rubén Martín. They all have something in common: their past as footballers and their present on the bench. A profession, that of technician, who currently faces the challenge of managing a group in full confinement due to the coronavirus.“It is important to maintain that bond with the player during the running of the bulls. Not only for the physical part, but also for the emotional one. You have to have empathy. Not everyone will have big houses, some will be taking care of their children … You must be close and adapt, “Nano Rivas started. While Santaelena, current coach of Alcobendas Sport, confessed his recipe:” We have a WhatsApp group with the players and We propose you challenges, that dance zumba for mobility or do sit-ups. In Tercera it is complicated because most do not have bicycles or treadmills at home. I’m concerned about weight. “Before the coronavirus made an appearance, each of them chose the technician who had marked him the most and explained their reasons. “Luis Aragonés”, said Santaelena, “for how he managed the locker room. He went to death with the players. Normal that Xavi and Iniesta have always stood out to him. He said that he had been a cook before a friar.” “And that his ass was bare!” He joked. Estebaranz, who chose Valdano: “It was a halo of freshness, it escaped all that was established. The president of Tenerife introduced him and took us to the field. There he sat us in the central circle and asked us to protect him. He became the best psychologist you could have because he made the player share the responsibility. “ A factor that has evolved like no other Levante coach Paco López. “In his methodology It involves a lot of the soccer player when analyzing the rival and deciding what to do. It is something that is used more and more “, Nano Rivas explained, to which Vivar Dorado completed: “It seems very transgressing to me.” Estebaranz ratified it: “It is the latest transgression of football idealism, which must evolve. It makes players responsible for what they will do on Sunday without a direct order. They convince themselves“Another example was Juan Ignacio Martínez when he was also in charge of the Granada team.” He came to a group with the entrenched ideas of the previous coach, Luis García, so the preseason was a clash of styles. JIM adapted its model where the team felt comfortable and achieved a historic season, “recalled Nano.A modern technical profile, although it comes from afar. “Many criticized Del Bosque with self-management and it turns out that it was even a modern thing. Self-management denotes a lot of personality of the coach, “argued Vivar Dorado, who dusted characteristics of Heynckes (“he put himself in the footballer’s shoes”), Quique Sánchez Flores (“he was incredibly proficient at tactics”) and Schuster (“He always gave offensive solutions to counter the rival”) to build his ideal coach.last_img read more


“In Norway only Haaland and Odegaard are discussed …”

first_imgÁlex Craninx, Molde footballer and former Madrid player “You don’t have to leave Madrid, they have to kick you out. The club told me to wait, but I was psychologically blocked” -He regret?-It is always said that you don’t have to leave Madrid, they have to kick you out. The club told me not to rush, to do the tour, but I was blocked, psychologically stressed. I put a lot to go pierced. And Sparta and Madrid are two very different worlds. From having it all to a modest Dutchman. It was very drastic for me. And then see that in Madrid that year all the goalkeepers were injured. I was in Holland but my head was in Madrid. I was thinking, “What if I had stayed?” I rushed in and didn’t make the decision well. They are experiences from which you learn. -In the Mold coincided with Haaland. That 17-year-old is now the nine most sought after in Europe …– I do not believe it looking a year and a half ago, when he was with me. You saw energy and passion, but this evolution is inexplicable, amazing … The move to Salzburg, Borussia … freak out. Now all the greats want it. It is an amazing progression.-They say in Molde that he spent some time getting sick, he hit the lug (it grew ten centimeters) and when he returned it was another.-When I arrived he was already a starter, although they did tell me about that change. He grew very fast and that caused back injuries, he was unbalanced. The teammates told me that when they brought him up to the first team … he didn’t put in one (laughs). But Solksjaer asked for patience with him and after two months he started to score goals, goals, goals and even today.-He also shared costumes in Factory with the other fashionable Norwegian, Odegaard.-In Castilla it was difficult but he arrived at 16 years old to play in Segunda B, there are very cunning players. You were going to the Amorebieta field and since he was a 16-year-old boy they were going for him. The boy thought “damn, I didn’t come here for this.” It is normal that it cost him. Now he is trained mentally and physically and this year he has given recitals.-In Norway can you imagine them together in Madrid?-They are the topic of conversation in the country, it is something daily (laughs). Not so much from Madrid as there is a lot of faith in seeing them together in the National Team, they are the benchmarks. Making the decision to leave Real Madrud is never easy and it was not easy for the Belgian goalkeeper either. Alex Craninx (Malaga, 10-21-1995). He went from doing the preseason with Zidane to having a bad time in the Netherlands. Now he has found his way in the Norwegian mold, where he has won his first league and will play the Champions League preview. With his Malaga accent, he talks from Norway with AS …– the uncertainty by Coronavirus is total, but that League that has won with the Mold is not in danger, right?-No, it’s ours (laughs). We finished before the crisis. It is my first title, last year we played the Europa League and now it is time for the Champions League preview. It was a good year and I broke my face and then a finger … I am learning English because it happened to me in Holland that it made it difficult for me to adapt. I came with another chip to Norway. Now we are waiting for events but the season has not split us in two because we were in preseason, in theory we started on June 15.-He left Valdebebas for Holland … why?-I had been in Castilla for two years without regularity and I needed to find myself. In Madrid I was valued and trained with the first team … I had to go back to the American tour and I had a contract, but I was overwhelmed. I made the decision and one day before leaving for America I went to Sparta in Rotterdam. -He had to take a step back before going forward …-I remember being that summer, after the year at Sparta, at my house in Malaga. I had to make a decision and in Spain I had little, a couple of subsidiaries and a Second B club. I looked a year ago and I saw myself almost in the Madrid first team and now this. It was a very strong change. I knew I was at the point where I was either going forward or my career was ending. The opportunity came out of Molde, a team that was fighting for the championship and I saw it right. Clear the mind and grow again. So it was and I’m at a good level, I renewed for three more years. El Molde is a very salesman and is committed to young people. I fight to keep taking steps forward. Luca Zidane, Yáñez, Kiko Casilla and Craninx, in the preseason of Real Madrid in Montreal.PEPE ANDRES -From Norway to Belgium. Do you notice your compatriot Courtois already settled in Madrid?-The Madrid goal had been debated for many years. Casillas, Diego López, Keylor … Courtois held and has given a great level.“Do you sit at the same table as Oblak and Ter Stegen?”– You have resolved very well to be under the spotlight. For me it is on the same level as Oblak, Ter Stegen, De Gea and Neuer. They are the best goalkeepers for their teams. For example, you can’t put Oblak at Barça and do the same job as Ter Stegen, because he doesn’t contribute to the game the same. But in Atlético, for example, he helps with his great aerial game and his enormous reaction under sticks. That has given Atleti a lot. Madrid have much more counterattacks, two against one, and Courtois is very good there. You can sit perfectly at the same table as them.– I suppose that now what Álex Craninx asks for is a little tranquility to be able to see his family, right?-Yes, I have a family in Belgium, I have a relative with coronavirus, my brother is in Madrid and I have business there, part of my family is in Fuengirola … I am more aware of what is happening outside of Norway than what is happening here . Next week I have it free because we have been working for a long time in groups of five and ten, but I will not be able to go see them. Now it’s your turn, you have to suffer and wait for normality to return. Craninx, with the lower categories of Belgium.DAILY ASlast_img read more


“Haaland does 300 push-ups and 1,000 crunches daily”

first_imgHaaland’s emergence in European football, with his extraordinary coordination of movements despite his height, his dizzying careers towards the goal and his feints, has had the greatest impact in recent years. Macek compares it to another of the Norwegian jewel idols: “He is a modern Ibrahimovic. I’d even say much better on the move, faster. And he has a great mentality when facing the game and the profession. He doesn’t want to speed up any deadline. ” When Macek shared training with Haaland, the striker’s name was already making headlines relating to Manchester United, coached by his idolized Solksjaer, Juve or even Real Madrid. The coldness that characterizes him against the rival goal is also applied by the Nordic striker in his career. “He told us that he still didn’t feel like taking such a step and that he wanted to take another. At that time the Bundesliga was already being talked about and he arrived at Borussia. He fell down there, huh? ”, smiles the Slovak. More than that, Haaland has been a cyclone in Dortmund: 12 goals in 11 gamesThey are 40 in 33 games if we add the ones he did with Salzburg at the start of the season.Macek supports the bet that the new football phenomenon made by leaving Borussia: “I think he took a big step. It is one of the best in Germany. Play the attack, trust young people like Achraf, Sancho or Brandt, played the Champions … But if he continues to progress in this way, we will surely see him in an even bigger team in a short time, perhaps Madrid. ” The player has a contract with the Signal Iduna Park club until 2024, but in Chamartín they keep an eye on him. The Slovak U-18 coach has no doubts about whether he would fit in at the Bernabéu: “The best in the world have always played there and Haaland is one of them. He is a footballer for Madrid, without a doubt… ”. Stanislav Macek tells the following anecdote when asked about Haaland. “He knows what he wants. I will tell you an anecdote. While in Salzburg, he had a girlfriend in Norway who came to visit him. All right. A few days later he came back because he said he had to focus only on soccer. “ Stanislav Macek (42) is the Slovak Under-18 coach and met the young forward in August, when he spent a week soaking up the methods of Austrian team coach Jesse Marsch. By then, the young Haaland was already showing Europe his authority before goal, with several shakes in the Austrian league. In the first five games, he scored seven goals. “Just seeing him impressed me a lot. He was a boy working as a mature professional. He is clear about his goal in soccer. Also that it is difficult, but he said to me: “To get there I don’t have to work fast but very hard.” And it does it without rest. Look, when he got to Salzburg he hardly played, and now it’s a show, “Macek tells AS.Seeing Haaland is seeing a physical wonder. Imposing (1.94 meters tall), he looks into the mirror of Cristiano Ronaldo, a self-made player, chiseled with a Stakhanovist philosophy from which the Norwegian drinks. “He has enormous respect for work. When I was in Salzburg, everyone told me. He works a lot individually to improve. He went on to tell me that at home he did 1,000 sit-ups and 300 push-ups practically daily ”, confesses the Slovak technician, who already had Haaland on his radar. “In March I saw him play with the Norwegian Under-20 against the Slovak Under-21. And I can say that I had not seen an individual performance by a young man like that. They won 0-2 and scored only one goal, but their match was extraordinary. It caught my attention tremendously. ”Stanislav Macek (right) poses with Marsch, Salzburg coach (center).last_img read more

Last season Madrid ran out of options to win any title in March and this season they already have one foot out of the Champions League (1-2 against City in the second round). Hazard ushers in a new galactic era, but main course obviously must be Mbappé … And that is the great moment thate Florentino waits for his Madrid. The great star of modern football, Mbappé, playing in the renovated stadium. The new Bernabéu.Contrary to what it seemed at first, the works have been expedited by the coronavirus crisis. They are in time to be completed in 2022. What remains to be seen is whether there are no economic difficulties (due to the crisis) that are a serious impediment. To make the reform, Madrid was forced to ask for a large loan. It had to be approved by the board of directors and before the Assembly. This loan has a total amount of 575 million euros, a term of 30 years and a fixed interest of 2.5%. Real Madrid reported that this financing “has been structured through a loan with three tranches, July 2019, July 2020 and July 2021, that coincide with the anticipated needs for the payment of the works. The loan also includes 3 years grace period amortization of the principal, which will make Real Madrid pay a fixed annual fee of 29.5 million euros, from July 30, 2023 and until its expiration on July 30, 2049 “. In other words, the new Bernabéu will cost the club a total ofe 796.5 million euros, figure resulting from multiplying the annual installment by the 27 installments of the loan.DAILY AS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>DAILY AS (DAILY AS) Mbappé.It is the other major axis of the latest project for the future. Real Madrid’s roadmap indicated that they had to try to sign him in the summer of 2021, when he only had one year left on his contract. It was the only way to sign him at a reasonable price. The player seemed determined, before the crisis, to reject one after another the renewal offers that PSG is putting on the table. But the crisis seems to have changed the situation somewhat and the footballer now plans to renew. In any case, he would never do so without including a termination clause in his new contract that would allow him to go to Madrid in the future for an agreed amount of money. That would hinder Florentino’s plan, which will always go head-to-head with PSG, but would continue to make it possible.

The first, when he first became president in 2000. His cover letter was Figo. Then came Zidane, Ronaldo, and Beckham. And with them came the era of the Galacticos, a new way of understanding the soccer industry. “They are those types of players who pay their own wages,” Florentino used to say. to justify such expensive contracts. The president devised a system that was demonstrated as the modern football base. So much star ended up attracting sponsors. And the relationship was one of reciprocity: he shared the image rights with his footballers at 50%. Madrid made an important qualitative leap in economics. In sports, it was only won (with that model) the Champions of 2000.The second that Madrid relaunched with Florentino in the presidency it was by the hand of Zidane. The first time that white team was an author set, when always it had been for soccer players (Di Stéfano’s Madrid, Ye-yé, Quinta del Buitre’s, Galactic’s…). With Zidane they won three Champions in a row, with Ancelotti’s, four in five years. Along with the French, Cristiano Ronaldo was the great architect … But the Portuguese was a signing that Ramón Calderón left.last_img read more
