João Félix devours the cholismo

first_imgJoão Félix was the great signing of Atlético this past summer. The Madrid club paid 127 million euros for the young Portuguese star and became one of the attractions of the Spanish championship. The first round of the league championship and the group stage of the Champions League and João Félix has appeared with droppers in Atlético. From Portugal they question whether the striker was successful in signing for the Madrid club while part of the fans understand that Atlético’s game system drowns the Portuguese. João Félix devours the cholismo and it will be necessary to see if from now on he offers the best of himself, as happened with Griezmann, who went practically unnoticed in his first months of rojiblanco. João Félix has played 15 league games, has scored two goals and given one assist. He played four Champions, with two goals. Four goals and an assist in the first part of the season does not seem much baggage for a player, although from the coaching staff they ask for patience. “We are on the road that we imagine, I don’t knowand if anyone imagined another situation, “says Simeone asked about what the player has contributed and his situation in the team. The Portuguese lost six games due to injury, the Champions League against Bayer Leverkusen and the league against Athletic, Alavés, Sevilla and Espanyol. The former player of Benfica started playing in a band, but later Cholo was putting him on a point, closer to the rival area. Diego Costa’s injury left a hole as Morata’s companion and that position has been for the Portuguese. Correa, perhaps the most decisive player in Atlético, is valid for everything. Play at the start, do it as revulsive, act in band or on tip. Curiously from Granada, when Cholo gave him orders to throw himself into a band, João Félix has advanced his position. Many point out that he is not comfortable in the field, that he is not the happy footballer who played at Benfica. The striker has already had six months of mili with Simeone. You already know that the most important thing is to apply in the pressure, to help the defensive system work well. The team, meanwhile, is winning, cutting positions, is third and He is crouched waiting for some prick from Barcelona and Real Madrid. In the purest Simeone style. While the team is winning everything goes and the accounts come out. Individual situations matter little if the collective works. In the environment of the soccer player they are not happy with this first part of the championship that the Portuguese has made, holder but many times changed before the conclusion of the matches. The fans have already shown their anger at leaving the field early while in the coaching staff they understand that it is normal in the process of adapting the player to the team. In the club, meanwhile, nobody opens their mouths when referring to João Félix, Absolute Mutism. It’s a matter of Cholo and he knows how to handle a player of his quality, different and with a huge future and potential ahead. Although the investment made and the effort made to sign him was very high.Atletico was spent 127 million and so far João Félix devours the cholismo. We will see what happens in these coming months, in the decisive parties that arrive.last_img read more

“It is not a life or death match, we are not surgeons”

first_imgMatch against Mallorca: “It is important. It is not a final. If we win we do not save ourselves and if we lose we descend. If it were the last match it would be a final. It is a six-point match, we face a rival who is in the same situation. I have heard to my players to say that it is a life-and-death match and it is not like that. We are not surgeons and we are not going to operate on anyone who can die. It has a lot of excitement for us, to be able to play in our field before a hobby we know that there will be a good entrance. We want you to enjoy. The player and I as a coach must be very excited knowing that it is important. “Without pressure or craving: “I have been fortunate that the team has competed well since I was here. The other day, despite the loss, we played a good game, but we were penalized for mistakes. The team is doing well and the players are not stressed. They have a tremendous desire to win the first game at home, Mallorca is in a similar situation and we play against our people, tomorrow the player will be happy to meet a full stadium, no need to motivate them in that regard. the illusion and adrenaline. The game lasts 90 minutes, not just five. We have to go full, but you have to win the game in 90 minutes, it’s not two or three. “ The Espanyol coach offered the press conference prior to this Sunday’s meeting against Mallorca. The parakeet team seeks its first win at Cornellà-El Prat of the season against a direct rival in the fight for permanence. In addition, the vermilion team does not know what it is to win at home in the course. He has only been able to score a point in the ten games played. Match between a team that has not won at home and another that has not won out: “Well, a draw. But we hope that it is not so. They are statistics. Mallorca makes the dynamics that it carries more dangerous. It plays a lot, like us. It has incredible merit. Several of its players have come from Second B. It has arguments very good to be one of the teams that can be in First next year. We have to be very attentive because it is very vertical and if we do not defend well it will cause us many problems. “RDT: “Not only does Raúl act as a leader because there are players who have been wearing this shirt for several years. Raúl has been a great success on the part of the club to bring it. He is a player who is in a great state of shape and we hope that this will continue during the years that has signed for Espanyol. “It is not a final: “Win or lose we will have to win again in Seville. I live the present. I look forward to an even, very tense match and any detail will uneven the balance. We will see how the match ends, the sensations and how the day ends. Despite the defeat last day we benefited. I don’t think about the future or the next game. “Sensations: “I always see myself winning. My feelings are always very positive. On the board, now that we will watch a video, I win 3-0. The team is very involved and eager to change this situation, but it is day to day. Unfortunately, when I arrived, it was not the best in terms of punctuation, and we will be like this during the 16 games that remain. I do not like the final word. It is a very important match and I see the team well, calm and with I want to be able to make a match. “The penalty kicker: “The other day, in Granada, I screwed up. It is a fault of mine. I have my responsibility because before Athletic I said that if there was a penalty Raúl throws it. With the pie the other day, in Granada, it happened to me. When it happened I didn’t think it was the penalty, I said Raul has fallen, and I didn’t see what happened next. I found out on TV. But I liked that two or three players wanted to throw the penalty. I liked that in this difficult situation there are three players who want to take responsibility. Raul will throw the penalties. “center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 8, 2020last_img read more

first_imgThe Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) and its partners last Saturday launched an Ebola Community Action Platform (E-CAP) project in Gbarnga, Bong County with a call for concerted efforts from citizens to fight the deadly virus.Launching the program, Deputy Minister for Research Planning & Development at the Ministry of Health, Yah Zoila, said Liberians must continue their efforts to fight against the virus which has claimed over 3000 lives in the country.Though there has been a considerable decline of infections in the country, “we need to work together to see to it that the virus is totally eradicated from our country,”Ms. Zoila said.She encouraged over 500 participants attending the program to ensure the prevention of the virus in their communities.Also speaking, the program manager at EQUIP Liberia, Emmanuel N. Kemen, said grassroots community engagement is the best approach to educate Liberians about eradicating the Ebola virus from the country.He added: “As a lead agency in the E-CAP program, EQUIP-Liberia is committed to building the capacity of grassroot and national organizations to improve community health and effectively address crosscutting community development challenges in Liberia.”The EQUIP executive called on Liberians to focus on eliminating the virus from the country and do away with stigmatization, rejection and discrimination against those who have survived the virus.Speaking through an interpreter, Daikpanah Chief Flomo Barror assured Liberians of the commitment of chiefs and elders of the country to spread the message of prevention and control in the respective areas under their supervision.He said: “On behalf of all the chiefs and elders of Liberia we are happy for this important launch in Gbarnga and we want to assure you we will do our part to ensure that this deadly Ebola virus disease is driven out of our country.”The launching program was marked by a parade through Gbarnga and climaxed with an in-house program at the Administrative Building.Meanwhile, Crusaders for Peace Executive Director Madam Julie Endee said the cost of the E-CAP project is US$12million, funded by USAID and developed by Mercy Corps, Liberia.She said: “The US$12 million is not coming to the Crusaders for Peace.

Drivers stuck on road in Pa. for nearly a day

first_imgThe sprawling storm system hit Wednesday and blew out to sea Thursday, leaving huge snow piles, frigid temperatures and tens of thousands without power across the Midwest and Northeast. The National Guard’s aid operation ended once the stranded vehicles were cleared from I-78 Thursday evening. Some vehicles – mostly trucks – were still being towed after becoming stuck in sections of the other two highways, Pennsylvania transportation officials said. Road-clearing operations were expected to continue through the night and into the morning. Transportation spokesman Sean Brown said he could not say when the roads would reopen. Eugene Coleman, who is hyperglycemic, was trapped for 20 hours while on his way home to Hartford, Conn., from visiting his terminally ill mother in Georgia, along with his girlfriend and pregnant daughter. “How could you operate a state like this? It’s totally disgusting,” Coleman said. “God forbid somebody gets really stuck on the highway and has a life-threatening emergency. That person would have died.” HAMBURG, Pa. – National Guardsmen in Humvees ferried food, fuel and baby supplies Thursday to hundreds of motorists stranded on a 50-mile stretch of highway for nearly a day by a monster storm blamed for 15 deaths. The traffic jam on the icy, hilly section of Interstate 78 in eastern Pennsylvania forced authorities to also shut down portions of I-81 and I-80 Thursday afternoon as they struggled to gain ground on the colossal traffic jam. Drivers were frustrated they were let on the road at all. State police did not close all the entrance ramps to I-78 until around 5 p.m., more than 24 hours after vehicles starting getting caught. “Why would they have that exit open if they were just going to let us sit there?” said a crying Deborah Miller. Her 5-year-old son was trapped in the car with her, running a 103-degree fever from strep throat. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Pellegrini worried by toothless Man City following shock FA Cup exit

first_imgManchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has admitted he is worried by his side’s lack of goals after seeing the Premier League champions crash out of the FA Cup at the hands of Middlesbrough.City, who failed to net in a Premier League defeat to Arsenal last weekend, didn’t score for the second home game running in against the Championship outfit, who secured a memorable 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Patrick Bamford and Kike.Pellegrini’s men only returned from a warm weather training camp in Abu Dhabi on Friday night, and his side looked leggy at the end of the clash as their FA Cup dream came to a surprising end at the Etihad Stadium.And Pellegrini admitted it was a disastrous performance from his side.“It is disappointing because we played very well before they scored, we had a lot of chances and we dominated the game, and their goalkeeper saved a lot of clear opportunities,” said the Chilean.“But after the goal, we were a disaster. I think we left too much space and they scored another goal – so at the end of the day the team who played the game for ninety-five minutes deserved to win. “We need to improve. We have had a lot of injuries over the past few weeks so we changed our style of play.“We benefited and scored a lot of goals from that, but now our forwards are coming back.“Maybe they are not at 100 per cent in their normal performance, but we haven’t scored against Arsenal or today so that is a real problem, especially at the Etihad.”last_img read more
