The arrival of Brexit will bring many changes to English football. One of them will affect the hiring of players under 18. So far in the Premier League players of 16 or 17 years could be hired as long as they came from a country belonging to the European Union or at European Economic Area. But with the departure of United Kingdom This would be over.And although it is suspected that a future will come to an agreement so that this continues to be the case, it is expected that English clubs will not be able to sign players until they are 18 years old. That’s why law specialists advise teams to jump for young talent during the last three days of the winter transfer market, as it picks up The telegraph.Jake Cohen, sports lawyer accustomed to working with clubs and Owen jones, a specialist in immigration sports laws, they are clear that it is better to seize the opportunity now than to wait for the FIFA Make an exception with English teams: “There is a lot of confusion. I would advise clubs not to wait for FIFA to give them a chance.”says Cohen. “I understand that this window will be the last chance for clubs to hire 16 and 17 year old players unless something changes in the FIFA regulation terms”explains Jones, lawyer of the firm Sheridans.With Brexit, as of January 31 they will not be guaranteed that in the future they can undertake this kind of signings of minor players, since in article 19 of the FIFA that explains is not included, at least for the moment, an exception with English clubs (they do trust that a change in the regulation is negotiated). This could put the Premier League at a disadvantage with respect to the Santander League, the Flirt 1, the A series wave Bundesliga, who will continue to exercise this practice without impediments, making the British wait for a player to be of legal age to be able to go for him. For now, the Chelsea It has already been done with Bryan FiabemaNorwegian striker Tromso, for 600,000 euros.It should be remembered that some of the great successes of the Premier League in terms of signings have occurred in this age range, as they are for example the cases of Cesc Fàbregas (Arsenal), Héctor Bellerín (Arsenal) or Paul Pogba (Manchester United).
The coach of the Netherlands, Ronald Koeman, confirmed in a meeting with the press after the draw of the League of Nations that Last January, representatives of the Blaugrana club contacted him to lead the club and he refused “because I have a commitment to the selection of my country.” Koeman has an escape clause with his selection to sign only for Barcelona, but it must be executed once the Eurocup of Nations finishes this summer. After the Spanish Super Cup played in Arabia, Barcelona representatives, with Éric Abidal and Òscar Grau at the head, went to Doha to try to convince Xavi Hernández, which declined the offer. Before the refusal they went to Koemana to see if they could advance the pre signing agreement, but the Dutch coach refused.We must remember that Abidal, in an interview in Sport denied having offered the position to Xavi Hernández ensuring that it was only a contact. We will have to wait to see what the culé technical secretary says about the offer to Koeman.Koeman was also asked about the role of Frenkie de Jong in Barcelona and stressed that “plays a lot in Barça, but he does it in a different position from the one he played in Ajax or in the National Team “.
Mendy was a recommendation from Zidane, a footballer to squeeze a Marcelo who had given symptoms of decline the previous year, but the Frenchman had trouble entering. He only played two of the first five Champions games and two of the first eleven of the League. His defensive firmness was getting him afloat, to the point that the team fits half of goals with him than with Marcelo. He has already played more games than the Brazilian (21 to 18) and also more minutes (1,607 to 1,436). His substitution against Barça missed.A similar future seems to await Mariano, the invisible striker. Throughout the season and until the Classic had played 44 minutes. He lost his dorsal (7) with the arrival of Hazard and ZIdane denied him even the Cup, habitual refuge of the most disadvantaged part of the squad. He had his minute of glory in the Classic and fell into a hobby that looks suspiciously at the coldness of Jovic. The Serbian, with many opportunities (24 games), has not been a solution (two goals).L also arrivesat the time of Militao, who has played noticeably less than expected, but that will have to supply the loss of Sergio Ramos in Manchester. Regular in the Tite calls (played the last two friendlies of Brazil, against Argentina and Korea), He did not debut in Madrid until September 14. He has only played 12 games and since January 18 he has not done so in the League. Yes he was in the disaster but before the Real. At the moment of truth comes with little filming. Definitely, Madrid attends a changing of the guard in the final stretch of the season, which will decide the titles. Four players who had a marginal role at the beginning point to crucial now. Most notable, undoubtedly, Vinicius, whose performance in the Classic has made him a cover footballer.The Brazilian had a difficult start with ZIdane. The arrival of the Frenchman caught him injured and only played the last three league games, two leaving from the bench. At that time the technician had returned to his faithful, to the heroes of the Kiev final. Hazard’s arrival seemed to close the door that Solari had opened in early winter. In fact, this season he did not play a full match until September 14. He has only started in 12 of the 38 games played by Madrid this season, but he played the most important of the last months, against Manchester City and Barcelona, and both with an air of figure. Add four goals, your pending subject, and three assists.
The Administrative Court of Sport issued a resolution last Friday the 13th, as revealed by Iusport and to which AS has had access, in which it reports the actions carried out to publicize its resolutions, as established by its regulatory regulations. He has done so after the insistence of the director of the CENAFE coaching school, Miguel Galán, since he sent half a hundred emails to the CSD asking them to act. The TAD informs that the file to the territorial presidents of the Federation, “started on March 22, 2019, was declared expired by Resolution of the TAD dated July 24, 2019, which was duly communicated to the Higher Sports Council and to those interested , Y said procedure has been reopened by the TAD Agreement of January 31, 2020. “The issue in question is that Galán denounced the Territories for having supported Villar by signing a letter and bypassing the principle of neutrality in the elections.The Administrative Court of Sport has agreed to “send to the Higher Sports Council all the resolutions issued by this Administrative Court of Sport and that they have not been published, duly anonymized, and to the extent that their personal and material means allow, for their subsequent publication by this Body “.
With two of the three great titles, the list of players is already almost endless. Among the defenders, the cases of Sergio Ramos and Cannavaro. The Real Madrid captain has two of the three great titles, the collectives at the national team and club level: the World Cup and the Champions League. But he lacks the Ballon d’Or, a trophy traditionally vetoed by defenders. The exception was Cannavaro, who won it in 2006 thanks to the World Cup in Italy. But the Neapolitan central defender never raised the Champions League.Then there are the players that many think, due to the great memory that their football or their goals left, that they should be (beyond Messi and Cristiano), but that they lack one of the three wound ones. Van Basten, three times Ballon d’Or, like Platini, could never win the World Cup with the Netherlands. Rummenigge, with two Golden Balls and won almost everything that can be won, lost the 1986 World Cup final against Argentina of Maradona, who could never lift a Champions League.For this reason, although the titles or the goals are the only yardstick that soccer players have, although the race to accumulate the Golden Ballons by Messi and Cristiano has brought some of the best moments in the recent history of soccer, possibly not being an unfair unit of measure, it is not fair either. It is not because soccer players like Xavi and Iniesta are left out. “I do not win Ballons d’Or, but I manufacture them”, concluded Xavi Hernández very wisely and very rightly. “One of my worst moments in my eight years as a coach was when I had to vote for the Ballon d’Or every year, because soccer is a sport in which everyone wins and loses, it is collective for good and bad.” And he says it Forest, who as a coach is at the top of the pyramid: Champion of the World Cup, the Champions League and the title for Best FIFA Technician. Football also talks about the fantastic four: Pelé, Di Stéfano, Cruyff and Maradona. But perhaps one should speak of the big seven: Charlton, Müller, Beckenbauer, Rossi, Kaka, Ronaldinho and Zidane. They are the only seven players in history who have won the World Cup, the Champions League and the Ballon d’Or. Messi and Cristiano, serial winners of all individual trophies and club competitions, they do not reach this level because they could not conquer a World Cup with their respective selections. Only those mentioned can boast of having the highest title at the level of national teams (World Cup), clubs (Champions) and (Ballon d’Or).But no one doubts that this virtual classification of the best in history does not do justice to the soccer that the Argentine displays and to the results that the Portuguese offers. Since Messi and Cristiano are missing, there are other great stars that were left out of the classification. Also striking is the absence of Ronaldo Nazario and Rivaldo. Both, who conquered the Ballon d’Or and the World Cup, they couldn’t win the Champions. Ronaldo stayed at the gates with Real Madrid, and Rivaldo terminated his contract with Milan in 2003, the year the Lombard club took the European Cup. In this group we could also miss Paolo Maldini, that he was only 45 minutes away from matching the six Gento European Cups, another historic that would resist on any list. But the truth is that in the classification of those who have won the World Cup, Champions and Ballon d’Or there are only the seven mentioned.
The other concepts of the salaries of the referees are the number of games whistled from the field and from the VAR. The First Division referees charge for each directed match 4,200 euros and half (2,100) for being designated in the VAR. VAR attendees will charge less: 892.5 per game. In Second, the emoluments per game whistled both in the field and in the VAR are lower: 1,890 for being on the pitch and 945 in the VOR. Although, for example, Álvarez Izquierdo and Iglesias Villanueva, specific referees of VAR and already retired on the pitch, do not charge these amounts, but a total of 52,500 euros per season. In total, for the remainder of the season, the First Division referees are at risk of entering 693,000 euros, without counting costs associated with living and subsistence expenses. The refereeing team is stopped, like the rest of football. This has caused that part of their income has also ceased. LaLiga braids are the best paid. The employers and the Federation agreed in summer 2018 adapt the emoluments of the Spanish referees to their status, since they are considered among the best in the world. Every season, from 2018-19 to 2022-23, the money they receive will increase percentage-wise.The salary of professional soccer referees is divided into different concepts. In the first place, all members (principals, assistants, fourth referees and match delegates) charge a fixed amount of 16,877,002.1 euros. The main referees of Primera would be the ones who would take most of that boat that each season increases by 10%. The halt of the competitions has created a dilemma that is still unanswered and that may perhaps face both institutions. ¿Will the Spanish arbitration charge almost 17 million euros if the remaining matches are not disputed? It is LaLiga that has to pay the arbitrators, who belong to the Federation, for the service provided, as stated in Annex III of the Coordination Agreement. A question that surely does not arise since both Rubiales and Thebes want to end the season.
The cut in salaries of Calcio footballers promises to wage war. After the statement from the Lega Serie A that announced an agreement between all the clubs to cut two months of salary if the competitions are resumed and four if notFollowing the path outlined by Juventus, the Italian Football Players Association called the proposal “shameful and inadmissible”. The vice-president of the players’ union, Umberto Calcagno, declared enraged: “It is clear that the intention is that only footballers pay the damages of this crisis“The only relevant part of that statement,” added Calcagno, “is the point where it is explained that the teams will have to negotiate the contractual modifications with the players.”Now another game begins: each club will have to convince its footballers to accept the cut. Juventus, according to the Italian press, did so by promising to “return” two and a half months of salary in the next academic year, but most teams want a definitive net cut. The ‘AIC’ statement may spark a new legal battle.
It didn’t take long for Barça to realize its mistake. At the Carnaval Cup in Argentona, Ilias shone and Jordi Roura approached his family to tell them that they wanted him back, assuming the mistake they had made just a few months before. Madrid, with scouts also in that tournament, was on the prowl, but the boy preferred to return to the club of his heart.Now Barcelona, so as not to make mistakes of the past, has agreed with him on a long-term renewal, in which he will give an important contract that will ensure a termination clause that drives away the suitors that Ilias already has throughout Europe. After the renovations of Ilaix Moriba and Ansu Fati last year, at La Masia they trust that by retaining this course, Ilias will also put an end to that talent drain that became so common in the recent past. Ilias Akhomach, a reason for hope in the midst of chaos … In the midst of the chaos in Barcelona these days, some cling to the quarry to look to the future with hope. At La Masia, after years in which they have barely seated youth squads in the first team, it seems that they have once again achieved a brilliant generation: that of 2004. And in it a name stands out above the rest: Ilias Akhomach (Igualada, 2004).It is a fast end, with one against one devilish and with a lot of goal. Kluivert, in a recent interview on the show ‘Què t´hi jugues’, He assured that he is the next Messi. It is still early for that comparison, but his season in Cadet A at Barça gives reason to believe that in the medium term he can become a first-team footballer.Ilias started playing on a team from Els Hostalets de Pierola, his town, although he soon stood out and entered Barça in Prebenjamín. However, in Alevín A they decided to do without him and he had to find life in the Gimnastica Manresa.
Every time seems clearer than LaLiga will have to end this season playing games during summer months. Logically, the heat will be one of the aspects that will have the most influence in this season finale and adaptation to it will be key. That’s where teams like Sevilla could have an advantage, but other aspect which can be definitive it is the experience of playing official matches. And there, the Seville is an expert.Why those of Nervión have had to play numerous previous of the Champions of the Europa League, Spanish Super Cups and of Europe in most summers of the 21st century. Without going any further, last season Sevilla disputed their first official match nothing less than on July 26, date in which some World Cup players had not even started their preseason with their respective teams. It was a match against him Hungarian ujpest whatue started a series of eight games that Sevilla de Machín played during the month of August between Europa League previews, beginning of The league and final of the Spanish Super Cup. Five years before, Sevilla’s Unai Emery started the way to the title of the Europa League in Turin with a tie before him Mladost Podgorica that gathered 30,000 spectators at the Sánchez Pizjuán on August 1. It was the first of the previous three that the Nervona team had to overcome and the first of the six games that Sevilla played in that month of August between all competitions.The seasons 14-15 and 15-16 Sevilla started them with the dispute of the European Super Cup as the first official match ofthe course in early August. In the 16-17, the preparation of the European Super Cup was added to that of the Spain Supercup, a case similar to what happened a decade before, when in the summer 2007 Sevilla had to combine two other Super Cups with a previous access to the phase of Champions League groups League.The final statistic of each season indicates that Sevilla It is usually one of the teams that more matches played during the course. And July and August have been no exceptions within months with official matches for Sevilla, something that seems to be repeated now. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of April 11, 2020
Víctor Mollejo (La Villa de Don Fadrique, Toledo, 2001) burns stages at breakneck speed. Marked for years as one of the great promises of the Atlético youth team, he did not disappoint when he had the opportunity in the first team from Simeone, either in friendlies or in an official match. His first match in a friendly came when he was only 16 years old, in the summer of 2017 (curiously with the ’35’ on his back, the same as Fernando Torres). In the official match, he had to wait until January 19, 2019, becoming the first born in the 21st century to debut with the red and white shirt.Those precedents invited that at Atlético they were convinced that they were facing a special footballer, one of those capable of becoming top players. And in his first year in professional soccer he has finished confirming it. This course, on loan at Deportivo, is the top scorer of his team (5 goals) at just 19 years old. He has played 26 games and in the worst moments, before the arrival of Fernando Vázquez, he was one of the few lights within the group from A Coruña. Sweetbread was special from a young age. He began to play for his hometown team and rejected Atlético up to twice. The first was when he was seven years old, after shining against an Atlético school team in a tournament played in Casarrubuelos. His parents determined that he was still too young. The following year, same tournament, identical performance and new call. Again, ‘no’ for an answer.It would be two years later, in a championship played in the fields Ernesto Cotorruelo (Carabanchel) when Mollejo gave the expected ‘yes’ being Alevín. He started first in a team from the rojiblanca school, with great sacrifices to travel the more than 100 kilometers that separate Madrid from its town. It was in Infantil when he entered the residence and went to live and study in Madrid.Mollejo is a striker, left-handed, who adapts to any attack position. His preferred demarcation is the second point, although it operates comfortably in any of the two bands (although it prefers the right) and also as a false nine. His strong character fits perfectly into what Cholo Simeone asks his footballers, although he must measure it so that he does not turn against him: this season he has seen 10 yellows, an excessively high figure for a striker. A strong temperament that, without a doubt, will control when it matures. Because there is plenty of talent …
