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. Regarding these payments, he said he found it “strange” to be made by cash and that the problem of lack of justification be solved in a few days, although he explained that He did not ask for explanations because there were documents prior to his arrival at the club that he did not know and at no time thought that the bills could be false. Regarding a refund of 125,000 euros signed by him and Vizcay, he said that he explained that he was destined to repay a loan and that the then president, Javier Zabaleta, was aware of it, although he did not verify it.As noted, It was not until the completion of the audit, in June 2014, when he became aware of this cash mismatch of 1.4 million euros, which meant that “or there were no supporting documents or money was missing.”This matter, he indicated, was discussed at the meeting held in August at the request of the auditor Adolfo Suárez between the management team and the Board of Directors, also coming himself, the then accountant, Tomás López and the lawyer Miguel Martínez de Lecea.As he explained, The main theme of this meeting was the viability of the club and if Osasuna was to make a bankruptcy proceedings or a payment for their assets, although the auditor stated that there was a mismatch in the accounts, asking the president to leave the room to discuss the matter privately.At this time, he recalled, former manager Ángel Vizcay set out to explain what had happened with that money, but Luis Ibero told him that “he did not want explanations” but a solution, since the Board, which had recently entered Osasuna, did not He had intervened in the problem.Ardanaz said that when he went to work in the club in accounting “there was a tremendous traffic jam” and noted that only “simple bank movements” were counted but “the rest was not done.”In this sense, He made reference to the fact that at the end of the accounting year Social Security was unpaid and there were complaints from players for non-payments, two issues on which, he said, focused their efforts to avoid relegation to Second B, as this put the continuity of the club in serious danger.last_img read more

Man United transfers: Perfect wing backs to replace Rafael with

first_imgThe rebirth of Manchester United under Louis van Gaal continued at the weekend, as the Red Devils beat Italian giants AS Roma 3-2 in Denver.However, for Van Gaal and his troops it was another 90 minutes of learning, as they attempt to refine the 3-4-1-2 formation the Dutchman enjoyed such success with at the World Cup where he managed the Netherlands.Van Gaal conceded that he was not happy with the performance, admitting that there are still areas to improve in before the Premier League season kicks off in three weeks time.“I am pleased that we have won but it was not a good performance,” he said.One area that will need addressing is a wing back. Prior to Saturday evening’s match, first choice defender Rafael was ruled out with a groin problem that has seen the Brazilian leave the club’s pre-season tour to undergo treatment in Manchester.With wing backs seemingly an important part of the formation change, how will Van Gaal cope with such inevitabilities as this throughout the season?OPTIONSAntonio ValenciaFor Saturday’s clash with Roma, Van Gaal opted to field Antonio Valencia at right wing back, with Luke Shaw operating in the same role on the opposite flank.Valencia’s versatility means that he is capable of playing such a role, even if he has proven to be a little bit suspect defensively whenever handed a similar task in the past. His performance was typically resolute, and while he is certainly a good player to call on in such situations, it is hard to view the 28-year-old as a regular starter in this position.Ashley YoungPerhaps intriguingly, for the second half of the Red Devil’s 3-2 victory, Van Gaal decided to swap Valencia with Young – a player many see as playing for his Old Trafford future.Typically a more attacking player, Young’s selection at wing back ensured that United had more attacking width than with Valencia, but given the England man’s lack of real experience in this role, it seemed to be a case of Van Gaal trying to fit square pegs at round holes, rather than genuinely considering Young as an option.Michael KeaneWhile Keane is naturally a central defender, his versatility has seen him feature prominently as a full back during his loan spells with Leicester, Derby and Blackburn respectively.At 21 years old, he is arguably ready to be considered as a genuine option, and while Van Gaal utilised him in a central role against Roma, he certainly offers something in wider positions.POTENTIAL TARGETSDani AlvesBeyond Rafael, Van Gaal’s options at wing back appear to be rather mixed, so the Dutchman may decided that the best option is to delve into the transfer market before the end of the summer.One player worth considering is Barcelona stalwart Dani Alves. The Brazilian is rumoured to be on the way out of the Camp Nou this summer, and should he become available he wouldn’t be short of potential suitors.At 31 years old, he is no spring chicken, but his ability to perform at the highest level is there for all to see. While he may not necessarily have the legs to play every match, he would be a solid signing for Van Gaal and could act as the perfect mentor to Rafael.Santiago AriasA perhaps more left field option could be PSV Eindhoven’s Santiago Arias. While only 22 years old, he has cemented his place in the Dutch side’s first team and has earned international recognition – featuring for Colombia in the 2014 World Cup.United scouts reportedly watched him in action on occasions last season, with a figure of £7m touted as enough to secure his services. His comparable experience would allow him to be either a regular first team starter, while Van Gaal could also use him as a solid tailor-made alternative to Rafael.Man United fans, do you think Van Gaal should stick with his current options or should he sign a new wing back in place of Rafael?
