Operation Rodrigo: Barça would sign Bruno Fernandes and leave him on loan at Valencia

first_imgRodrigo Moreno has not trained today with Valencia in the previous Cup match. The striker who is at the Cugat clinic in Barcelona, ​​with Cillessen and Manu Vallejo, initially undergoes a review to check the condition of his knee with Dr. Cugat, who is an external doctor at Valencia, as Cope has confirmed. In fact, it was already there two weeks ago. This, first, implies that Rodrigo will not be on the list for the match against Cultural, which could have been his last game with the Valencia shirt.Rodrigo’s absence coincides with a key day in his future. Valencia and Barcelona will continue negotiating today for their transfer. Yesterday the agreement was not closed, although the parties settled down to speak today.Bruno Fernandes optionIn Rodrigo’s operation, the possibility of Barcelona signing to Bruno Fernandes (Sporting de Portugal), who was about to sign for Manchester United, and would automatically transfer it to Valencia, as published by ‘Superdeporte’. As AS has learned, the operation would not be for now, but from June. The idea is that Barcelona would sign him until 2025, but with an agreement to transfer it until the end of the 2020-21 season. And is that the club blaugrana, by issues of Financial fair play, I could not undertake the two operations in this winter market. The Alcacer option, also openValencia also prepares its offensive to hire Paco Alcacer. The striker, who is in Dortmund pending his return to Mestalla, is chosen by Valencia to reinforce his front. As AS reported, it was from the beginning of the market. Of course, the initial operation was thinking of June or, failing that, if Gameiro and Sobrino had left now in January. But Alcácer’s name has remained the first option as a result of the emergence of the option of Barcelona signing Rodrigo to replace Luis Suárez’s loss. Valencia knows that it has the OK of Alcácer, with which it would take “three minutes” to close his contract, although obviously the pitfall is in the claims of Borussia Dortmund. The Germanic club, little given to the assignments, would give the green light to the exit of Alcácer whenever it recovered the invested in its day, which would be around 25 million.last_img read more

The Pucela would touch the permanence extrapolating the results of the first round

first_imgIf the competition resumes one day, Real Valladolid will11 games would be ahead, like the rest of the teams, and with 29 points he should still add between nine and eleven to reach a permanence to which right now the blanquivioleta team leads in four, the Mallorca brand, with 25 points, although the pucelanos have the great goal won with the vermilions by having defeated Vicente Moreno in both duels, so they should earn five more units than the Valladolid people to get out of the descent.If we extrapolate the results of the first round to the games that are missing in this second round, the result is that Real Valladolid would get 10 points, would add 39, which, practically, would give him salvation. In this way, Sergio’s team tied with Leganés, Celta and Atlético de Madrid, the next three rivals, then four duels would come in which Pucela did not get a point (Getafe, Sevilla, Levante and Alavés) would face Valencia , with which he tied at Zorrilla, would receive Barça, the team that beat Blanquivioletas 5-1, and would finish the League against two teams that they have already won: Eibar and Betis. In total two wins, four draws and five defeats. The negative side of this extrapolation is that in the first round, the Valladolid players against the rivals who have already played in the second round, had achieved 11 points, while in this second round they only added eight in the same number of games. We will therefore have to wait for the competition to resume to see if the team improves the 21 points of the first round, which would take him to 42, or it stays a little shorter. We must remember that last season the team finished four points above the descent with 41 points, 22 won in the first round and 19 in the second.And it is necessary to take into account that, right now, in a simulation of the score, the permanence would be 35.2 points, that is, 36, reason why to Real Valladolid repeating the results of the first return the accounts would leave him. However, extrapolating is not a scientific method, much less because of those 11 duels in the first round, the blanquivioletas played five at home and six at home. Now it will be the other way around. The pucelanos will play six games in Zorrilla, against Levante and Alavés in a row, and five at home so the points could be more given that the Valladolid players this season have achieved better results before their public, despite having played fewer games: 16 points in 13 home matches and 13 points in 14 duels away.last_img read more

LaLiga says that the FEF is not competent in its Europlan

first_imgIn addition to this, and in relation to the National Cup (Copa del Rey in Spain), depending on the different cases, the Europa League Regulation of the current cycle (Regulations of the UEFA Europa League 2018-21 Cycle) includes, in its Article 3, the different options and cases by which it grants the right to participate in the European competition (Europa League) to the next classified in the league competition (in this case the 7th classified) in the case that the Cup champion has already was classified to the Group Stage of one of the two European competitions for his sporting merit in the final league standings.For all these reasons, the incompetence of the Delegated Commission of the RFEF to adopt any type of agreement on the matter is evident, much less unilaterally and regardless of the organizer of the competition that entitles international participation, affecting the competitiveness and integrity of the LaLiga Santander competition itself in this case.That said, and in line with the proposals-drafts of competition calendars worked by UEFA itself with the European Leagues, it is appropriate to make the following considerations in relation to the qualifying positions that may be eligible to participate in the Europa League:to. The start of the Champions League and Europa League Group Stage is scheduled for October 20, 2020.b. The Preliminary Stage for qualifying for the Group Stage to which a Spanish club has the right to access (6th place in LaLiga Santander or 7th place in the event that the Cup Champion obtained their right to participate in the European Competition for LaLiga qualification of the 1st to 6th place) and according to the UEFA Regulation Access Lists (also published by the RFEF by UEFA regulations in its Circular 31) would start on August 13 (Q2).c. For all this, There is a lot of time left to play the Cup Final to find out who should be the club that should participate in the UEFA Europa League preview of Q2 on August 13, in the event that the Cup champion was already classified for the Champions or Europa League due to his league classification and, in this way, it had to be the 7th classified (as it has been in previous seasons) the one who had to dispute the Phase Q2 classification. If this were the case, the club ranked 7th in LaLiga would be known from July 31 that the LaLiga Santander competition would end.In the event that the two Cup finalists have already qualified directly for the Champions League or Europa League Group Stage, the club entitled to the Q2 qualifying dispute would be known from July 31, which would end the competition. of LaLiga Santander according to the schedules scheduled with UEFA.For these reasons, I would like to reiterate that this item 5 of the Agenda cannot be debated or agreed in any sense because it is already defined and agreed by the competent body of UEFA and, also add that, any type of decision at the national level, if necessary, should be agreed with LaLiga given that it clearly and directly affects the competition in terms of its competitiveness and its integrity. LaLiga considers that the RFEF has invaded its powers when approving in its Executive Committee the classification criteria for the next European competitions in case the Spanish League does not finish. For the organization that groups the clubs, the Federation you cannot establish a qualifying order for UEFA purposes without it and also considers that the regulations of the highest continental body are being skipped when trying to make the runner-up of the Cup qualify for the Europa League because this assumption does not figure in the European regulations.LaLiga also considers that Rubiales has invaded its powers by proposing the suspension of national competitions in football not teachersional.European competitionsRegarding the classification criteria for European competitions, the letter from the LaLiga lawyers says verbatim:“With regard to this 5th item on the agenda, we would like to state that the dispute of international club competitions organized by UEFA, linked to the sports merit obtained, on the one hand, by the competition organized by the National League of Professional Football (such as the First national football division, or Liga Santander), and on the other by the Copa del Rey Competition (the champion holds the right of access to the European competition), it is a right that derives from the final qualifying consequences of said competitions, from which said sporting merit begins. Being the LaLiga Santander Competition, as we have already indicated regarding the proposal for Item No. 4 on the Agenda, organized by the National Professional Football League in coordination with the Federation, effects reserved for the final classification cannot be attributed to an intermediate or incomplete classification without having the organizer of the competition, for different reasons.First. Lack of RFEF competenceFirstly, it is not the responsibility of the RFEF, and therefore of this Delegate Commission, to make these types of proposals that could directly affect the competitiveness and integrity of professional competition. Any decision that affects the professional competition must be decided by LaLiga or, where appropriate, by it in coordination with the RFEF.Second. CriteriaSecondly, it should also be remembered that the criteria on access rights to European competitions are the responsibility of UEFA, through the agreements of the respective Committees, among which is the representation of the European professional Leaguess, together with other stakeholders in European football. In this sense, and for the 2018/21 Cycle, the places of access to the European Competitions are approved by the corresponding bodies of UEFA and included in their Competition Regulations for both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League (see website of UEFA). The accesses are already determined in them (with their access lists according to each member association) based on the classification of the national competition and the champion of the national Cup competition.last_img read more

Gordon: Send suspended Simmons to Sri Lanka

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Former West Indies Cricket Board president, Ken Gordon, believes suspending head coach Phil Simmons was the right thing to do but says he should still be allowed to join the squad in Sri Lanka in some capacity.The 85-year-old Gordon, who led the troubled entity between 2005 and 2007, said Simmons’s appointment as head coach had been a positive development, and since he had now apologised for his actions, the WICB needed to find a way of incorporating him.”The reintroduction of Simmons as coach has been an invigorating development. A former Test player, Phil is well respected and liked on all sides,” the Trinidad Guardian newspaper quoted Gordon as saying.”He is a good leader, knows the game and has come back to us with an impressive track record earned from his virtual transformation of the Ireland cricket team.”Fortunately, too, the board now has a further opportunity to redeem itself if it responds maturely and accepts Phil Simmons’ apology. If they can be magnanimous, even at this late stage, and make him a part of the Sri Lanka team.”Biased selectionsSimmons was suspended for the tour after telling media in Barbados last week that people were using their position to influence the selection process, and keep the Trinidadian duo of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard out of the one-day team.He said he and chairman of selectors, Clive Lloyd, had voted for both players to be included for the tour of Sri Lanka next month but revealed that the other members of the selection panel – Courtney Walsh, Courtney Browne and Eldine Baptiste – had voted against the move.”I don’t think that it (selection) was done as professionally as it should be done, [there was] too much interference from outside and in this case, I even go as far as saying maybe influence because the reasons that were given for them being out,” Simmons complained.Gordon, a successful Trinidadian businessman, said Simmons’s suspension was warranted but his subsequent apology showed he understood the mistake he had made.”The really terrible irony about the current situation is that suspending Simmons was the right thing to do. Disciplinary action was required in the circumstances,” Gordon pointed out.”He now understands that as coach it was wrong to make such public criticism of the organisation he has been employed to represent. His responsibility was to fight this internally or leave. You cannot have it both ways.”last_img read more
