There will be someone who thinks differently, but I consider going abroad a very interesting option. ” And the bug bites: “When the first experience is good, the desire to stay outside increases. I have no need to return to Spain. In the future I will think about looking for something more ambitious, trying other leagues … “Lori FC ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Auzmendi celebrates a goal with Lori.Lori FC Xabi Auzmendi launched into a pool in which, six months later, he moves like a fish in water. “When he arrived he asked me for automatisms, but I told him not to straighten, to move freely and to enjoy himself. Since then he has been a key player in the team. He stands out on the pass, whether short or long, he has a spectacular aerial game and a very powerful shot. He is a player with brutal potential. Left-handed, but who handles both legs. The best thing is that it hasn’t touched a ceiling“analyzes David Campaña, your coach at Vanadzor. With one of the lowest budgets in the category, Lori came to lead the ranking, although the stoppage caused by the coronavirus surprised him third, in European positions. “It is a very competitive league, but I feel the confidence of the coach and the teammates and that makes me feel free. I am very comfortable, although I know that I still have a lot of room for improvement,” said Auzmendi. David Campaña, Lori FC coachcenter_img After three years belonging to the Royal Society, Xabi Auzmendi (Lazkao, 1997) lived in 2019 one of the most difficult summers that he remembers. The ‘txuri-urdin’ did not renew their contract and the offers of other clubs were conspicuous by their absence. “It was very difficult,” recalls the Basque midfielder. But everything changed when the proposal came from Lori FC, a modest team from the Armenian First Division. “I saw that there were other Spaniards and I didn’t think twice about it. I had always wanted to play abroad, but I never imagined that my first adventure abroad would be in Armenia“reveals Auzmendi, who has already completely forgotten the bad feelings of the past summer market:” There came a time when I couldn’t take it anymore and I decided to risk it. Now I am very comfortable; I’m happy”. His present, however, continues in Vanadzor, a city of 90,000 inhabitants where watching him play football is free. “The club is remodeling its stadium and, meanwhile, we play where we train. Not many people go, and that is that admission is free”, discovers Auzmendi, who has stumbled upon “level” football in Armenia: “The people He has a bad conception of soccer in other countries, but the truth is that it is the most practiced sport in almost all the world. Although the best soccer players are in Spain, there is a level throughout Europe. In Spain, tactically, the teams are much more worked But here football is strong, very aggressive, and that complicates everything. They lack the football education that we have. ” The Basque midfielder has tried this course on all lines. “Less than goalkeeper, center back and right back, this season he has played in all positions.

No public until 2021

first_imgJavier Tebas met this Wednesday with the First and Second clubs to explain the last meetings held with the CSD and the Federation that led to the famous Viana Pact last Sunday. The president of LaLiga, beyond recounting some details that have not been made public until the time of that appointment, looking like a truce, wanted to send a very forceful message to the presidents, CEOs or vice-presidents who were present at that telematic meeting : that they be putting themselves in the worst scenario facing the configuration of their next budgets. The realism, more than the pessimism, is due to the fact that the intention at the moment of the Government (the coronavirus could make it vary) is that there are no shows with the public, and therefore soccer, until 2021, the date by which it is hoped to have the long-awaited vaccine.Thebes stressed the importance of this fact. And not only for the purposes of calendar, audiovisual regulation, closed protocol protocols that they already have in their hands and it will be expanded, as revealed by AS, but by the incidence in terms of income from subscriptions and tickets. The clubs estimated for a month that, with this break in competition and despite the possible restart of football behind closed doors, 129.5 million would lose for these concepts in total (117 of them in First and 12.5 in Second). The First class would stop earning 38.8 million at the box office (they would stay at 95.5 of the 134.4 expected) and 2.6 the Second class (would win 7 of 9.6). As for fertilizers, the losses would be 78.1 million in the First (they would earn 194 million out of 272.1 expected) and 9.9 in the Second (28 of 37.9 would enter). This would only be part of the hole that awaits them since, with television included (500 million on the wire), LaLiga believes that its total losses could rise to 956 million, if this course is not played again, and 350 if it is done without an audience. Because, the clubs have already been designing and even publishing strategies to solve the problem with the 11 remaining days of the season. Some plan to return the proportional part to the members, such as the Real (20%), others study discounts in the next card, while some more claim that there is no disaffection and maintain loyalty and, instead of returning the money now, Allow your subscribers to watch as many games of the next campaign for free as they have been deprived in this campaign. This new scenario forces them to change their step, since they will not be able to sell tickets this summer, when the 2020-21 season ends, facing the next, nor at least sell tickets in the second half of this year. To this we must add that the benefits for the official stores, bars and restaurants, visits to museums and other concepts will not be able to be invoiced, with the effect that this will have on the cash register. All this will have a clear impact. According to the experts, there will be more clubs that will request the Temporary Employment Regulation Files. Until now only a few have reduced the working day due to force majeure, either to their staff, to the workers or to both: Barça, Atlético, Espanyol, Alavés, Valencia, Tenerife, Racing, Ponferradina, Albacete, Osasuna, Granada, Las Palmas … Now, between now and the end of the year, these ERTE could be extended for economic or production reasons, a justification that other clubs will surely hold on to that until now they had remained firm and had solved the crisis with some specific cuts.According to the sources consulted, Thebes began his speech before the clubs very seriously. So much that it made an impact. And not only for these data: “This is what I have been able to save from the Royal Decree … And I am not going to enter into evaluations.” Later, he gave details of how the meeting with Irene Irene Lozano and Luis Rubiales came about, coming to admit that he did not know anything until they called him the night before (23:00) and told him, with much secrecy, that he had to get a taxi at 10:00 the next day to go to a major summit. Without specifying what it consisted of. He even thought that it could be due to the calendar to return or the health protocol. Thebes reported that he was surprised when the destination was specified and that when they arrived they seized his mobile. “Although he did not say the specific word, there is the feeling that there was a lockdown there,” an important president assures AS.last_img read more

Sergio González, the quarry mirror in which to look

first_imgThe truth is Sergio González had already debuted before with Cádiz and Cervera on the bench. The Carthaginian, who has been on the Tacita de Plata team for seven years, He was the first B player the coach pulled, (with Juanfran Chamizo) in the 2015-16 season, against Jaén, in the last game before playing the promotion phase to Second. Later, in last season, he had minutes in three other games with the first team (two in the League and one in the Cup). This year has been one of its emergence. Sergio has the virtue of versatility and is that he performs both in the center of defense and in the core. The Cádiz quarry has been a good memory for Álvaro Cervera since his arrival in the Cádiz team. From the first year, the coach has set his sights on Team B and has given the alternative to numerous players. This year, two footballers came regularly from the start of the campaign: Javi Navarro and Sergio González. With the departure of the winger to Ponferradina, the defender remained the only regular B player in Álvaro Cervera’s calls, becoming the showcase of the quarry. This season has been the wild card for Cervera against the plague of injuries that plagued the defense and has always counted for the coach in midfield, when Garrido or José Mari were absent. Many times even ahead of first team players. Cervera likes the criteria with which he plays the ball, his pulse does not tremble with the ball at his feet. This course has been called 14 times, being a starter six times and entering four others from the bench. Álvaro Cervera has praised the conditions of the youth squad, whenever he has had occasion: “It’s been very good since I’ve been here and for what I ask you to do it. Sergio deserves that we give him more. If by me it gave him more opportunities and whenever we have needed it, it has met to an exceptional level ”For all these reasons, last January it extended its relationship with Cádiz until June 30, 2023. “I am super grateful everyone who has put their trust in me. It was a dream I had since I came here. I always wanted to continue, and with patience and work, it has come true. I am very happy to be here until 2023 and I hope it will be many more years “, commented the player.last_img read more
