Mauricio Pochettino a shock contender to replace Unai Emery as Arsenal manager MAURICIO POCHETTINO will not allow his loyalty to Tottenham prevent him taking the Arsenal job should it become available.That is the view of former Spurs midfielder and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.6 Jamie Redknapp reckons Mauricio Pochettino should put his Spurs loyalty aside if Arsenal come callingCredit: EPAPoch, 47, was brutally axed by Tottenham last Tuesday, bringing to an end his five-and-a-half-years in charge.And just 11 hours later, he was replaced by Jose Mourinho at White Hart Lane.But he may not be out of work for too much longer if Arsenal sack their boss Unai Emery.The Spaniard is without a win in his last six matches and the pressure is mounting with players reportedly feeling disillusioned with the coach’s ability to turn around their season.Should the Gunners give Emery the boot, Pochettino is a shock contender to replace him – although the club know they will do well to convince the Argentine to come, especially after he ruled out managing Barcelona because of his affinity with Espanyol.But any feelings of betrayal against Spurs for taking the job at arch-rivals Arsenal should not come to mind for Pochettino, according to Redknapp.Writing in the Mail, he said: “If I was a decision maker at Arsenal, I’d go for Mauricio Pochettino in a heartbeat.”I’m not sure I believe Poch would let his time with Tottenham stop him from taking over.”Maybe the reason Spurs decided to go for Jose Mourinho so suddenly was they felt they could not hang around, because their North London rivals might be searching for a new boss soon.”Unai Emery is under big, big pressure. I have some sympathy for him but he looks a beaten man.”66Latest Arsenal newsLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesCONT ME OUTArsenal’s Lacazette ‘not interested’ in joining Inter as Martinez’s replacementGossipINTERESTED PARTEYArsenal ‘most interested’ in Thomas Partey but coronavirus delays talksGUNNER GOLuiz ‘has to go’, Saliba ‘a concern’ and Mustafi not at right ‘level’, says KeownAT YOUR BOC AND CALLTorreira reveals ‘dream and desire’ to one day play for Boca JuniorsWRIGHTY’S OUTRAGEIan Wright says video of George Floyd’s death in US left him ‘drained’HOMECOMINGDavid Luiz confirms Benfica talks with Arsenal contract set to expire in JuneGossipBERN IT UPMan Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea on alert after Bernardeschi reveals Prem plansThe Redknapp family may not be the most popular on the red side of North London with Jamie playing for Tottenham for three years and his dad Harry managing the side from 2008 to 2012.But comments like these will no doubt infuriate Jamie’s former fanbase, who will be desperate not to see Poch operating in the Emirates dugout, especially if he manages to break his silverware duck.Pochettino is currently among the favourites at 6-1 to replace under-fire Emery with Mikel Arteta the front-runner at 3-1.66 Unai Emery is facing the chop from the Emirates if the poor form and drab performances continueCredit: Reuters6 Former Spurs man Redknapp will have endeared himself to Gunners supporters marginally with his comments about Poch replacing EmeryCredit: AFP – Getty

What is clear is that they will not be able to recover the more than 70 million euros that cost their transfer on the recommendation of Griezmann. Apparently the whole of London want it as a replacement for Erikssen to which it continues raining offers in the present winter market. The Athletic will put all the facilities to the operation and thus be able to immediately close the arrival of Cavani for the lead and the other alternative would be to Paco Alcacer. It has become the focus of current affairs in the Premier. Foot mercato and some more English media point that Tottenham has been launched to try the signing of the red and white Lemar for the present month of January. Until now only the options of Arsenal and Lyon had been discussed. The mattress leaders have the exit of Lemar as their high priority since in case of getting it the arrival of Cavani would be facilitated which remains the priority request of Simeone.
How does one pass from the subsidiary of Betis to Al Hilal?Well, one Sunday I was on the bench of Betis Deportivo and on Wednesday I was in Riyadh. It was very fast. The head of the medical services of Al Hilal called me, who had heard from me thanks to a Polish colleague who handed him my resume. I did the Skype interview and it’s been four months in this adventure.And what is it like to win an Asian Champions League?We had little time to celebrate it in Tokyo, because we were returning the next morning of the game. He did not fall asleep. The next day was crazy. Photos, flower necklaces, flares … It was amazing.The final seemed easier than the semifinal against Xavi’s Al Sadd didn’t it?Totally. In the return of the semifinal we had a very, very bad time. We knew that after that tie it was difficult for us to escape the title.Did you talk to him?Xavi greeted us and wished us luck, as did Gabi. Logically they were noticed that they were somewhat annoyed, but when they saw me and knew that I was Spanish, they wished me luck to win the final.What attitude do your team cracks have like Giovinco, Gomis and Carrillo?There is a wrong idea with that because the most professional of the squad are the players that come from playing in Europe. They work in the morning apart from the club with a physical trainer just for them. They are treated daily, they take good care of themselves. Have you talked a lot about the Super Cup over there in recent days?It has not had much impact in the country yet because it has not been promoted too much, but knowing how they live football and how they follow LaLiga, they will have it and it is surely a success.Are you aware of the controversy generated in Spain?Being there you see that the idea we have of how your society works is not quite like that. In our stadium, for example, women can go to games. There is an area that women and men call “family”. If you consider that two years ago women could not even drive, I think they are taking steps.And do you think football can really help?I think that the help that such a tournament can be for the opening of the country is more useful than the punishment of depriving them of the Super Cup. The celebration of our title, with men and women on the street celebrating it, is the best example.Which team is the favorite of the Arab fans?They are very Real Madrid. Almost all of Arabia goes with them. In fact, they ask me in the interview if I am from Real Madrid or Barcelona. When I told them that neither of them, who was from Betis, looked at me very strangely. Then they insisted a lot about whether I didn’t like Real Madrid and I told them that I was the one they wanted (laughs).Since you mentioned it, how are you seeing your Betis in the distance?Well, the first thing I think is that I hope I reach 38 years old half as well as Joaquin. It is a sight to see it. The truth is that the start of LaLiga was difficult, but the team has changed the dynamics and now we have to improve in the second round to reach Europe.
Few haggle themFew have been the cases in which any club had paid any amount so that the player could participate. An example was the Oier Olazabal, ceded from Granada to the Royal Society. Gerónimo Rulli, titular goalkeeper, could not dispute the duel against the Nasrids, so the Txuri-Urdin had no choice but to pay the 100,000 euros fixed by Olazábal’s contract so that the goalkeeper played that game against the club at that belonged. Otherwise, the third goalkeeper should have been the owner. Many are the voices that understand that the ‘fear clause’ directly undermines the rules of the integrity of the competition in which UEFA has been emphasizing so much in recent years. In this sense, the Regulations on the Statute and Transfer of Players leave no doubt about the assumption that if a transferred player wishes to play against his home team he can compete without problems.Specifically, the rule indicates that “no club will enter into a contract that allows the opposing club (s) and vice versa or third parties, to assume a position whereby it can influence labor matters and transfers related to independence, policy or performance of club teams. “Violation of fundamental labor rights outside of what is established by UEFA, the reality is that these clauses diminish the labor rights of soccer players, without going any further than that of effective occupation. It is true that the clubs are protected by the autonomy of the will that allows the freedom of pacts between the contractors but this freedom finds its limit when the law is violated, a circumstance that could occur in this case since the Statute of the Workers includes as basic labor law for athletes, that of effective occupation.When we talk about effective occupation we talk about the right of the athlete – like any worker – to carry out his work. The worker is not only obliged to work; It also has “the right” to work, which translates into the corresponding obligation of the employer to provide the committed activity. The lack of work attentive to the professional dignity of the worker, impairs his training and is a grievance to his professional image.As a consequence of the ‘fear clause’, the athlete is violated the possibility of intervening in the matches or what is the same violates his right to effective occupation to the extent that the athlete could only be dispensed with in cases of sanction or injury . 05/31/2017 – 10:11 | 10:28 – 05/31/17 They prevent the ceded players from jumping the field against their home clubsMerman the right to effective occupation of the player Morientes, on the left, eliminated Real Madrid from Champions being a loan from the meringues. He had no ‘fear clause’. Image: Reuters In the world of football, it has become customary to talk about the ‘clauses of fear’, a name that receives the provisions of a transfer contract by which clubs that lend their players prohibit those same players from facing their home team unless that exorbitant amounts are paid. An imposition modality that became custom after Real Madrid suffered it in their meats in the middle of 2000, with ceded as Fernando Morientes or Pedro Munitis turned into executioners of the targets in Champions or the League. The objective is that workers to whom a team pays do not end up ruining their sporting objectives.In general terms, the hiring of workers to temporarily transfer them to another company is prohibited, it can only be done through temporary work companies. However, this possibility exists in the professional athlete’s employment relationship so that the clubs can temporarily transfer the services of one of their players to other groups with their express consent.The so-called ‘fear clauses’ are usually found within the terms of the agreement. They are clauses that establish, as a condition for the assigned player to play against the transferor club, the payment of an amount that is fixed in the contract – disproportionate in many cases – under the following approach: the assigned player may not play against to the transferor club unless it pays the amount agreed upon to it.
Girona’s current streak is good, take four games without losing, and the next day, on Saturday before the Ponferradina in Montilivi, there is a new opportunity to continue marking ground and maintain the pulse in the struggle to ascend. Yes, calm and humility. It is what they want to convey both from the club and from the dressing room. It is true that the numbers are not excellent because in the seven games played this year the balance has been three wins, two draws and two losses, but those of Martí have gone more in tow than with the wind in favor. And the data indicates this because he has been losing more time (214 minutes) in the games than winning (170 ‘). Despite this, sign 11 points of 21 not bad and it has served him to be one of the best teams in this period and settle in the promotion playoff. Moreover, with respect to the seventh classified, Numancia and Fuenlabrada, the distance is four points. Martí has instilled in the group the competitiveness and ability to sacrifice. It is paying off because two days ago before Huesca the precipitation did not prevail despite being with one more in the last minutes and he won, with a goal from Samu Saiz, in 94 ‘. And against Depor, last Friday, a point (2-2) was rescued despite falling 2-0. Again with a few minutes of mourning marked by patience, order and know-how. It seems that Girona will reach the end of the season with better sensations and climbed in the good wave. The group of Pep Lluís Martí has been very competitive in recent days and the triumphs against Fuenlabrada and Huesca and the draw against Depor show the mirror in which the block must be looked at if it wants to reach the goal of promotion. For now there is optimism because, waiting for what Zaragoza does in the duel that still has to be played against Albacete, they glimpse the positions of direct ascent to five points. He will have to continue paddling to return to First, but if something is learning this rojiblanco set is to suffer. And especially as of 2020.
Atalanta invests about 16 million, more than double that of Valencia, and they are the current Italian U19 champions Maurizio Costanzi, a lifetime forming soccer players in Chievo Verona and a trusted person of the Technical Director Giovanni Sartori, with whom he arrived in 2015, took the mythical witness Mino Favini, who for 25 years directed the Atalanta academy and to which the club, as a posthumous tribute, gave its name to the building destined for the quarry inaugurated in November 2019. Costanzi continued with Favini’s legacy and today there are 80 scouting he coordinates in Italy, Europe and Africa. There are two reasons why Atalanta “controls” such a number of players. One is its commitment to training and recruitment; another, determining in the number of assignments, the fact that in Italy, except Juventus, no Serie A club has a subsidiary team in the style of Spain. That implies that after the training period in the Primavera team, those who are not fit to make the jump to the first team or simply because they have no place for mere chips, continue their training in clubs in Italy (10 ceded militan in Serie A). or in European leagues. AIeksarden Ceferin, president of UEFA, in an interview with ‘Le Tribune de Genéve’, in which he warned that the European football body was going to study limiting player transfers, said: “It is an aberration the number of players that have certain institutions (…) For example, in Italy an entity controls 103 players. We are going to set limits. ” That entity referred to without naming it is the Atalanta de Bergamo, a club that has a payroll 22 players in their first squad, 27 in Atalanta Primavera (Sub’19) and up to 54 ceded by Europe. Atalanta is committed to assignments as a way of keeping the players trained in the Zingonia complex under control. You just have to attend to the age of the ceded to corroborate such a policy: 34 of the 54 are Sub’23 and 17 of them, Sub’20. Etrit Berisha, goalkeeper who plays in the SPAL (30 years) or Marco D’Alessandro, also side of the SPAL (29) are the exceptions. The domain of its quarry, in which around 16 million (more than double that of Valencia), is a reality. Last season they were Italian U19 champions and both Primavera and U18 are today leaders. 17 Sub’19 players are Italian and 10 foreigners (Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Poland, Gambia, Czech Republic, Brazil, Slovenia and Senegal).Valencia, however, which only has six ceded (Jason, Racic, Sáenz, Lato, Blanco and Carbonell) will be presented in San Siro with more youth players in its squad. Gayà, Soler, Ferran and Kang-in Lee, while Gian Piero Gasperini only has three: goalkeepers Sportiello and Rossi and defender Caldara, who has returned in this winter market in Milan.kulusevski, the last pearl of zingonia that Juventus has signedDejan Kulusevski, two months younger than Ferran Torres, is the last pearl formed in the Atalanta quarry. However, the Swedish midfielder, who normally faces Spain in the European Championship, will not play with the first team of Atalanta, a shirt that has only been put on three occasions.Kulusevski has exploded during his assignment in Parma to the point that his signing for the Juventus of Turin became official on January 2, which will pay 35 million euros plus ten in variables. The Swede, thus, becomes the second highest transfer of a footballer born from the year 2000 after Vinicius to Real Madrid.Kulusevski follows in the wake of other youth players who in recent years have left dividends in the Bergamo club accounts: Cagliardini was transferred to Inter for 20.5 million; Caldara, Juve (19); Kessié, to Milan (24), Andrea Conti, to Milan (24) and Zappacosta, to Torino (4.3).
“It means a lot the Champions League. There is something different around it. The emotions are different. It is not that you give less in other competitions, but there is something else in this, I do not know what it is. Everything that revolves around it is incredible and there is more pressure, “he said. They will feel it against Manchester City in one of the stellar duels of the round of 16. “The City is a great team with an excellent coach. It is a very skilled team and does not shy away from passing the ball. It will be a matched match. Our plan is always to win. Obviously we analyze the opponent, but we focus mainly on us.” Benzema marked the challenge of winning all this season. “In Real Madrid, the goal is to try to win everything. We don’t even have to try, we have to win everything. You need luck, be in top form at the right time. We want to achieve something good, both in the League and in the Champions League.” The French striker talked about the work that has helped him improve. “It is the work that is not seen, everything that happens outside the field, whether resting, working or carrying the correct food. In the field everyone has their qualities, their unique talent. We all work differently and, outside the field, you can work on your game, “he said. That causes a physical improvement from which Benzema takes advantage.” I always work hard. Physically I feel really good, I feel fit. I usually go to the gym and in the countryside I enjoy it immensely. In recent years I have scored goals and given assists. I like to help my team win. “The Champions League returns, a special competition for Benzema where his goal scorer explodes the most. He is the fourth leading scorer of the tournament behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and a Raul Gonzalez who starts shooting. Karim Benzema, French striker of Real Madrid, showed a demand to continue improving as a footballer, convinced that he has “the opportunity to reach higher”, and three days after a great European duel against Manchester City he sees his rival as “great team , with an excellent coach. ” “You can never know if you are at the highest point of your career, because one is always looking for perfection. But I have reached a very high level and, even so, I look even more, because I know that I have the opportunity to reach higher, “Benzema said in an interview with UEFA.
How did you face that match in opposition to Federer ?: “He was not my idol. He was primary in the world, and I used to be already on the circuit. I confronted the sport with enthusiasm and the self-confidence of the younger man who has nothing to lose, that approach I confronted him. As we speak the conditions they’re completely different. In the finish, when you find yourself younger, the energy of novelty is thought. Gamers know you much less and you already know everybody much less. For you, every event is a brand new expertise. That yr was my first full yr in the event, my Miami’s first event … when you find yourself younger, that I began the circuit very younger, you reside one thing completely different from what it is in the present day. All the tournaments you go to have repeated them many occasions. They’re neither higher nor higher conditions. worse, they’re completely different. And every part on this life all the time has a particular taste. “How do you encourage your self to be efficient in the vital factors?: Sure I’m incorrect, the key’s to make rather less mistake than your rival. We’re all incorrect, me too. In actual fact, that’s why I went twice with a break down. I feel it is a matter of persevering with, of accepting the error. Don’t get annoyed It’s the primary precept and from the acceptance of the error one has the capability to investigate issues to investigate issues with a wider perspective. With a cool head I feel that at the starting of the two units I used to be taking part in much less aggressively, shorter … I attempted to counter this example. Begin taking part in extra aggressive, extra intense and recovering extra monitor. As we speak it went effectively, but it is finest to not break down. “How do you keep in the elite ?: “I’ve been requested many occasions. I suppose with enthusiasm and keenness for what I do. In the finish, to worth all the good issues that this sport has given me and provides me and that continues to excite me day by day. The truth is that to have the ability to go on tracks like in the present day, which was full and with an viewers that helps you unconditionally.That is one of the important causes.Getting out to the stadiums and feeling that individuals are with you is a really giant power injection. that it isn’t without end. I do know that the second of not residing it any longer, in the finish, as is logical is nearer. It’s 33 years and a really very lengthy profession, but I nonetheless take pleasure in doing what I do. Whereas my physique and my head permit me to proceed doing what I do in a aggressive approach, right here I proceed. “ Rafa Nadal certified for the remaining of the Acapulco event by defeating Dimitrov in two units. The Balearic analyzed in the press room his victory and in addition the remaining he’ll play this Saturday (early Sunday to Sunday in Spain) in opposition to Taylor Fritz.Victory in opposition to Dimitrov: “He has had a break up in the first and second. They’re matches through which small particulars that change every part. These small particulars have fallen from my aspect so that the result’s extra cumbersome than the match has mirrored. It was a great sport, I went from much less to extra. For me being in the Acapulco remaining is essential after some time with out competing. It’s beginning once more in the competitors with a great feeling after the defeat in the Australian quarterfinals. an injection of morale. I feel I’m additionally taking part in at a great degree. I’m comfortable for it and for having performed in opposition to one of the finest in the world and with a great degree. It’s been a heavy day, through which I misplaced loads of liquid, now you need to recuperate for tomorrow because Fritz is taking part in at a really excessive degree. “Match key: “I assume having performed slightly higher than the opponent in the key moments. In the finish the variations are small. With this end result it seems a comfortable match, and it has not been that approach. They’re small particulars that mark a end result like the one that has Sure. I received 6-2 and 6-1 yesterday and my opponent had eight break balls. In tennis issues are in your aspect. As we speak, each time he broke me, the subsequent sport, each occasions, I made an ideal sport and was in a position to return the break. And that very important, to have the ability to return the break and that I can’t achieve confidence by having benefit in the scoreboard. That has been a key. When it has been put ahead I’ve been in a position to give slightly greater than I used to be giving and matching the rating. “Fritz, excited to play in opposition to him for the first time: “Partially it is regular. After I was younger I used to be excited to play in opposition to Agassi or Federer, which we have now had a protracted joint historical past afterwards, but I confronted him in 2004 in opposition to him in Miami and he was primary and for me it was an ideal phantasm. Nonetheless It’s a very completely different scenario. Fritz is a consolidated participant, with a complicated rating, with an ideal projection and taking part in very effectively. I used to be 17 years outdated, it was a special scenario. Will probably be a troublesome sport, it hits the ball very arduous and I’ve to be ready to attempt to hit him from awkward positions. I’ll see if I can do it. “
