Tottenham does not accept Inter bargains by Eriksen

first_imgA series* Data updated as of January 21, 2020 According Mirror, the midfielder is crazy about leaving the team he leads Jose Mourinho, but Inter only offers, for the moment, 11 million pounds, that is, 13 million euros. That figure does not convince the English club, which is not willing to let him out for less than 20 million pounds, about 23.5 million euros. Tottenham knows that he is exposed to running out of nothing, but he prefers to press and retain the player in order to obtain a fair price, since for an amount less than the required one they get more into account to keep it to try to overcome in the Premier League or go as far as possible in the Champions. 2. 3 Martin Schoots, a 27-year-old Danish representative, is scheduled to meet with Daniel Levy today to try to convince them to lower their claims and everyone wins. Inter, at the same time, continues to move in the January market and has already managed to sign Ashley Young (Manchester United), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea) and Victor Moses (Chelsea) Tottenham no longer tries to renew Christian Eriksen. He is aware that the player has already made the decision to leave London and they can’t do anything to stop it. In summer you will be free and there is a long list of clubs (among them the Real Madrid) that would peel for him. In the meantime, Inter Milan, which is losing in that summer auction, has tried to get ahead, negotiating to take it in the winter market in exchange for a symbolic price so that Spurs take something instead of nothing.last_img read more

Bayern, behind Lemar

The Frenchman spent two summers 70 million to Atlético two years ago and between that it has not worked and that Simeone asks the Uruguayan striker to solve all the problems with the goal, Lemar’s time in Madrid seems to be running out. France Football I was reporting this evening that Bayern Munich thinks of Lemar for this winter market that ends on Friday 31 although it does not require if in transfer or signing mode.

The commission of the agents was what broke the Cavani operation

first_imgThe signing of Cavani was made by Atlético de Madrid. Only the signature and announcement were practically missing, the salary and conditions had already been agreed. Three days ago the PSG had finally accepted the offer presented by the club rojiblanco, slightly higher than the 10 million that had been presented at the beginning, around 15. But everything was finally broken by the player agents, as you have known AS. At that time the negotiation broke down forever. Cavani will not reach Atlético this January but neither will he in June. It is a buried operation for the rojiblanco club. The player’s representatives asked for a commission as if the player’s transfer was in June, when it ends its contract with the PSG. An amount that, as AS has learned, was the same amount that the rojiblanco club was going to pay to PSG and that doubled the operation. Cavani’s option was to arrive pierced now, in January. Cavani was Simeone’s first option. And almost the only one. The rest of the names that were being considered did not convince the coaching staff, the sports management, or the coach. The cholo I had in Cavani a soccer player capable of competing with Morata and Diego Costa. The others do not. It was then that there was a turn in the search for signing for Cholo in this market and the option of repear Carrasco. He is a footballer with a goal, who can play on the entire attack front and also as a false ‘9’. From Atlético he went to China two years ago. I was just looking forward to returning to Europe.last_img read more

Alexander-Arnold: “My other favorite team is Barcelona”

first_img“Klopp is amazing. All of him in every way.” Your coach, in person and on television: “He is the same person. You can see that he is someone who cares about the people around him. For his family, for his players, for the staff. He treats everyone the same, a captain or a young man. People probably she has a very emotional conception of him. This is somewhat true, but she knows how to control it in a way that is beneficial for everyone around her. She knows what to say, in what tone to say it and at the right time. “ Alexander-Arnold The Anfield Heat: “The first time they sang my song was one of the moments in which I felt the most pride in all my life.”Racism in soccer: “I feel it comes from a lack of education, from educating people to understand that we are all equal, regardless of skin color or gender. Discrimination is not acceptable in any way, because we all have the same opportunities to be able to do whatever we want. Why shouldn’t someone be able to go to a soccer field and express themselves because people feel that it is a problem that is a different color from theirs? It’s crazy. “Messi or Cristiano?: “For me, Messi”.Klopp: “He is incredible. All of him in every way. His management of men … As a person, as a coach … Simply incredible.” “I feel that Barça has the same values ​​and beliefs as Liverpool” A good player: “I never knew he would be a good footballer. In fact, now I don’t think he is a good footballer.”Don’t you consider yourself a good footballer?: “I haven’t reached my full potential. I’m still not where I can be, so there is no point in putting a label on myself. I still have a lot to improve. In childhood there were always indications that I would come, but I tried to play every game, I wanted to win it But I never thought I had to be a footballer.

Although they taught me during my childhood and they did not.”Connecting the fans and the players: “The fans here are special and they love soccer players more than anything. If they fit the city and the environment we live in, if people accept it and feel at home … Liverpool is probably one of the easiest clubs in that sense, as soon as you get in you’re accepted. “Play chess?: “Sometimes, although probably not as much as people think it does. I played against Magnus Carlsen, if you have that opportunity you can’t refuse it. I lost, but it didn’t hurt. It’s not that I play daily, it was a hobby for when I was little and the weather was bad. “Liverpool’s smartest player: “Milner”. Klopp’s talks: “It will never sit you down with videos. I think at this level the players should be doing that on their own. If the coach tells you to do something and you don’t understand it, then you should go to the assistants, get the videos and understand it. What he does is keep our mindset one hundred percent. He makes sure the message is instilled in all of us every day to make sure we are the best. “problems from behavior in the quarry: “I wasn’t mad all the time, maybe I’m too competitive sometimes. I wanted to win so much that if I didn’t, I was obviously upset. He comes from a very young age.”Temperament: “It made me lose concentration in the match. I focused on my mistakes and if I committed a foul or a penalty that cost my team a goal … I was angry with myself and for the next five minutes you stayed out of the match As if your team were left with ten players.

Atlético decides this week the future of its employees

first_imgAnd there is a third group that is the most concerned and refers to the workers who right now cannot do anything. Atlético has more than 100 workers in its various stores, now closed. There is also an increasingly important group within the entity and its expansion plan and that of the Academy, which brings together all the rojiblancos teams. The Academy is closed, there is no activity, and this affects coaches, physical trainers, doctors, physios, utilleros … Atlético understands that there is a figure that exceeds 500 people among these groups that right now cannot carry out their daily activities.Atlético has been proposing emergency solutions, such as days off or vacations that these employees still had, but the alert status will last until day 11 at least and they will have to find some kind of solution. Nobody escapes that there is the possibility of doing some ERTE, although in Atlético he still does not want to talk about this. The entity wants to do the minimum damage to its workers and that is why they do not want to rush. Atlético will study this week the entire situation derived from the COVID-19 crisis. In the club they decided to be calm in the next days of the state of alarm decreed by the Government and the sights were set on complying with all the measures imposed to avoid contagions. The Madrid club closed all its stores and almost from the first moment imposed teleworking. Health as a primary objective. After this week, the measures will begin to be evaluated. Atlético groups its workers into three areas. The first, professional footballers. Here the Madrid entity will go hand in hand with LaLiga.The second group is the staff that can telework. Activity in the Metropolitan has stopped, but club collectives do work from home. In the social area they do it because many fans are contacting those responsible for the social area by phone or email to solve doubts. Tickets, future matches …last_img read more

Why are some clubs in a hurry than others with ERTE?

first_imgWhile the clubs meet among themselves to agree on strategies against the crisis, the majority also fight with their players at this time to ask them to collaborate as soon as possible and not in due time, as they demand. Some are finding facilities (Alavés), others seem to be going out charging (Barça) and some more have officially slipped it but have not yet communicated it with hair and signs to their dressing room (Saúl dixit). Soccer players are presenting battle. The captains have already made it clear to AFE, the last time last Friday and Saturday in two telematic meetings differentiated by category, which are in charge of helping anyone in need during these hard times. In fact, although the media focuses on Messi (one million euros for the cause) and other big stars, most are contributing with different donations. However, they do not swallow with the ERTE (Temporary Employment Regulation File).Many leaders believe that footballers only want to save time and negotiate a salary drop when they have all the data in hand: when the championship restarts, when it ends and what the losses have been. They are not very confident that FIFA can issue a general order, because each contract is a story, although they would do well to limit wages. However, the clubs consider that the footballers in Spain are playing with fire and that they are already being pointed out by public opinion, since Bundesliga professionals have lowered their salaries by 20%, German clubs in Europe help to the modest and the Juve players are going to save 90 million to their club in this break. And even so, there are presidents more and less uneasy about this supposed positioning in LaLiga, with the Second Presidents being the most in a hurry. The reason for this double speed is multiple. On the one hand, as a study carried out by Palco23, “The evolution of the business in the last five years in the clubs reveals the clear correlation of television money to the payment of wages, but the budgets reveal that there are clubs that could sustain their wage bill, while for others it is essential to survive” . Not everyone is equally stressed.In addition, the continuous changes that are taking place in the labor legislation influences. On March 27, a new Royal Decree was approved, which will be “automatically extended” the contracts of those professional athletes affected by an ERTE derived from COVID-19, either due to force majeure or due to economic, organizational or production causes. In this way, many clubs have understood that it is better to wait and reach an agreement to reduce the salary during the time without competing without affecting the premiums, the card or the image rights. Only to monthly income.The nature of the footballers’ contracts also counts. The clubs most in a hurry to clarify the picture are those that pay their income to players in 12 or 14 great equal payouts. Those who take it slower are those, like the older ones, who continue to pay with the old method: 12 more or less reasonable pay for the figures handled by an elite professional and two extras, usually at Christmas and June, where the bulk of the token is paid. These clubs see no problem waiting and readjustments are made based on summer pay.In short, all the clubs have fears, but some see their benefits at risk and others, simply, have short-term treasury emergencies. “We are talking about many solutions for what can happen and not for what is happening,” says a First Vice President. “There are clubs that do not want to pay and there are clubs that cannot pay. And soon we are going to have problems with the payments of player rentals, ”says the manager of a historic club of Segunda. Here is a party.last_img read more

El Alavés will sell solidarity t-shirts to help the General Nursing Council

first_imgThose of soccer with sleeves and those of basketball without them to be able to be used in the parties. They are game. In fact, in the first two commitments of both teams in the Santander League, in ACB or Euroleague, the two entities will wear these kits to pay tribute to the health workers of a city especially plagued by the coronavirus. In addition to Vitoria, towns such as Labastida have had very serious outbreaks of infection. The hotel that usually plays host to most of Baskonia’s European rivals, the Gran Hotel Lakua, is now medicalized to cater for the less severe pandemic patients. A doctor on duty and 15 physios are responsible for assisting those affected. It is in this hospitality center that Alavés’ signings are also usually housed when they arrive in the city and have not yet found a fixed address for their family. That and the Jardines de Uleta, which is very close to the Mendizorroza stadium. Pitu Abelardo and basketball coach Velimir Perasovic, without going any further, preferred to settle there instead of looking for a house since their families resided in Gijón and Split respectively.In addition to this solidarity initiative, several players have contributed their bit by donating money to projects of doctors in the province, playing FIFA or Fortnine to raise funds or making an ongoing appeal through social networks to help the toilets and remembering that you do not have to leave your house in full confinement. In both cases, the two staffs have undergone an ERTE since last Friday (with retroactive effect to the date of the declaration of the state of alarm) and suffer a 70% reduction in their salary due to competitive inactivity and the lack of training. Josean Querejeta is the maximum shareholder of Alavés and the president of the basketball Baskonia. Although they are two independent joint stock companies, the synergy between them is unquestionable (they share a store, employees, a sports city and managers or managers). Therefore, the latest initiative presented involves both the soccer and basketball clubs. T-shirts from both clubs will be sold to raise funds for the General Council of Nursing, regulatory body of the 307,762 male and female nurses in Spain that watches over the safety of patients from its 52 provincial schools. The online purchase can be done from today. These are three different models in both the soccer and basketball elastic bands: children’s (35 euros), junior (35 euros) and senior (39 euros). In both cases, the shield, the mark (Kelme) and the legend OSI Araba, an entity that groups the hospitals and outpatients of the province, are screen-printed. They will be blue and white in both cases.last_img read more
