[Youth] The "best alevín of Spain" may leave Atletico

Luis Hernáiz is the only player in Spain for 11 years has a contract with Nike.


Luis Hernáiz "is the best current national juvenil," reads one of the previous reports that the youth football team ran. Atletico could lose if you do not keep the agreement reached with Routledge in February this year to pay for gasoline to go training. Sports management from the current refer such an agreement they know there being nothing in writing and believe it could be an unfairness to other players in its class to live in Toledo and Talavera. Luis lives in Arcas (Cuenca) and his father, Paul, has three seasons and bringing to Madrid to train four times a week, which is two hours one way and as many back. In total 500 kilometers. All this without any help from the club so far. The problem is that the crisis has also beaten the parent company of Louis and no longer has the financial resources to afford these trips to the capital. To all this, the boy joins up the Child, which is training a day ... and in Majadahonda is a bit farther from home. So far training in Orcasitas.

Back in February this year when Jose Maria Amorrortu, former director of the quarry, he learned of the problems I was starting to get the family of Luis to take him to training, offered financial assistance. But rejected by the commitment they have taken this season with Atletico. Of course, came to verbal agreement that next year when the club signed their contract would pay the parent gas. Following the dismissal of Amorrortu this verbal agreement has come to nothing, even though parents have lowered their pretensions Luis, for not asking 2,000 euros it would cost to bring your child to the Hill, but 1,200, and they think they can cope with another 800 remaining. However, Atletico is now offering as much as 600 and with the money the boy could not come to practice, because both Luis suchas family did not raise the possibility of residence as the child alone is 11 and it is best keep close to his family.

Last season, Luis was the captain of alevín and led his team to the league title, in addition to winning tournaments Burriana, Mic, Carballo, Canillas o Gaunas. In fact it was named best player in the tournament Canillas and Carballo, besides being second best player in the ancient tournament of Brunete. Its quality has led to large firms fight over him, beat Nike to Adidas in this fight by signing his first contract with a boy of 11 years in Spain.

It is on the agenda of several strong teams. Real Madrid and Barcelona are leading the way, although the white club can not sign a nonaggression pact between the two quarries at this time, while the Catalans at the moment have made no approach. If definitely not end Atletico to help the player who could come to train, one of the possible outcomes could be the Leganés, which reunited with his coach in the last two years, Santi Expósito.

Mourinho: "The Supercopa is less important tournament of the season"

Although a less aggressive than last year, Coach White showed that awaits us another season of war.


It seemed that this season we would see another Jose Mourinho. In his first press conference prior to the first official game of the season, however, the coach of Real Madrid made it clear that we expect another year of war and dialectical and psychological wear. Although a less aggressive than the end of last season, the Portuguese regained his speech more defiant all. Of course, avoided talking about the club and was cured in health for a possible defeat by Blaugrana, discrediting the Super Cup.

The Mourinho always appeared when asked if he had learned from the tactical errors made in their last match against Barca. "The only thing I've learned is that you can not tell the truth," was the response of Luso, dimly remembering the sanction imposed by UEFA their charges after being knocked out by Barcelona in the semifinals of the Champions League. And still had to reload arrests before the European governing body: "In the Champions will not talk while you are punished, but for me it was a victory for UEFA, with a legal system that can not be called democratic, I have reduced the penalty game. And if you have not fallen more is because there had been a strange situation. " Mou `we conclude with a statement:" Sanctions will not change my nature, I was not going to shut up. "

In between all these challenges, Mourinho had time to discuss his first game for Barcelona. And as always was the band, disqualifying the importance of the tournament in case: "The Super Cup is the most important tournament of the summer and less of the season, so we have not prepared for the Super Cup, but for the season. In these two games we played we did not work this month, we have worked for a season where we have more important goals. "

For the coach of Real Madrid this double confrontation is not going to mark the passing of the season. Will not even serve as a reference on the pulse between the two teams: "It is a tournament isolated and has nothing to do with what happens next. With the Inter lost the Italian Super Cup and then we triplet with League, Cup and Champions League. "

Mourinho avoided talking about the boat: "I can not come and I have to talk about another team other than mine." And appreciate the role of the fans, linking with the need to specify a final booster to the front: "People preferred to come and stay in the pool sipping a cold water. We're all together and when we're together I can say without fear that I do not want any player, although the market remains open. " (via SPORT)

Madrid-Barça: Goes very seriously

Barca start the official season in style: a visit to Madrid in the first leg of the Supercopa.
Messi, with only 6 days of work, will lead a team less fresh than its rival, but safe and ambitious.


They were the 54,000 fans who saw the training of Madrid at the Bernabeu, but the 150 fans who waited Barca in Barajas to the 20.45 hours so passionately encouraged to coaches and players all became aware at that moment that the preseason has been over, this is already very seriously.

Although the hours before is not experienced anything like the hostility that surrounded Poker Clásico in April, the club knows that the Bernabeu is a boiler and bite Mourinho's team as always, the limits of the rules, even more hunger for revenge after his KO in the last Champions League semi-final and still hurt because it hurts for life, for the 5-0 league. Against this emotional stakes, the club wants to respond with intelligence, which enabled him to emerge victorious in previous battles Chamartín. Moreover, with the return at the Nou Camp (Wednesday, 23.00 hours).

Piqué Xavier and recovered, the question is Sergio Busquets for the bruise on the side that suffered in the Italy-Spain, but surely the Badia try to be available is as usual with his character. And the question is to know the role that Thiago will, after his phenomenal season, and the Chilean Alexis in his debut as Barca. In principle, points to the bench. In Madrid, Sahin injured back Sergio Ramos and novelty and might be ex espanyola Alley, in shape.

Sandro Rosell traveled with the team. Accompanied by Ramón managers Pont, Jordi Mestre, Jordi Mones and CEO, Antonio Rossich, today will be in a box at a stadium that will nail you. The president, who spoke with Guardiola path of the aircraft, also plays and has not wanted to leave his team.

Guardiola and five players, talismen in the four visits to Santiago Bernabéu


Since Pep Guardiola Barcelona came to the bench, the team has played cuatro clásicos at the Bernabeu, three and one Champions League.

On four occasions, the coach has lined up in the starting Valdes, Alves, Piqué, Xavi and Messi, and together they have three wins and one draw. Without a doubt, the oldest of all is that of Terrassa. Up in your boots 14 in Madrid with a clásico balance of five wins, four draws and five defeats. With two assists from the midfield, the club won two years ago.

Gerard Piqué premiered at the Bernabeu with a real great goal in his first season as the sixth culé Did you check both the 2 to 6 How and Messi has become nothing more and nothing less than three goals in the stadium blanco.

Cesc arrives today in Barcelona

The club claims that its arrival in Catalonia is discrete on a day that will be especially marked for the match against Real Madrid.


Cesc Fabregas will continue until it is made official his move to Barcelona with the most prudent behavior and respect for Arsenal in recent weeks. The player will land today in Barcelona with the intention of not making much noise, at the request of the Catalans club, and wait for its official openly to show their happiness for having fulfilled the dream of returning to Camp Nou.

The final stages will be solved tomorrow at the offices of the club. On Friday, the e-mail waiting for Arsenal to final approval of the transaction, but all the loose ends are tied and the documentation is in order once you pass the weekend. The deal is closed and is complete. Cesc is now a Barça player for the next five seasons after the first hour stay Friday to finalize the transaction.

The delay of the agreement was attributed primarily to a anger from Arsenal for the euphoria in the locker room the club and expressed online by Gerard Pique and Carles Puyol. However, in the Emirates or even paid attention to this detail once it had reached an agreement between clubs. A story was exaggerated because of the absence of an official statement from both entities.

Barca silence was due to the desire Pep Guardiola that no media uproar broke out during the day yesterday when the team should have put the five senses in the Super Cup final against Real Madrid.

A presentation of Arenys multitudinous could distract his new teammates and it was better to leave the official announcement after the game signing for the Bernabeu. Arsenal agreed and so had time to communicate before a signing, Costa Rican Joel Campbell, and also to prepare more calmly the premiere in the Premiership against Newcastle.

The difficulties were overcome during the week and there was no hurry to announce the deal. Tomorrow will be finished reviewing the contracts with confidence and are expected to contact the transfer on the websites of both entities.

Barca and Arsenal have finally come to an entente cordial, how could it be otherwise r, since only wanted to play Cesc at Barca and the total amount of 40 million euros was more than enough.

As they move through the hours are getting to know details of the transfer. TV3 reported yesterday that the club will pay 29 of the 34 million fixed operation in two installments during 2011.

Thus, 14.5 million will be transferred this month and others 14.5 shall be paid in October. Arsenal has not the facilities, for example, offered with Udinese's Alexis Sanchez, will allow the club blaugrana start paying the signing in 2012. The English need the money immediately to meet new recruits and they are not accustomed to receive over-split transfers.

Arsenal were very reluctant to accept the six million euros in variables, which should add to 34, but had no choice. Wenger pressured the chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, so not to delay the sale and the Gunners' did you have to accept the sale under conditions that were not the most advantageous to their interests.

The French coach supported the player in the final stages of negotiation and this factor has been determined to not have to wait until August 31 to sign for Barca Fabregas, as could have happened as elverano passed. The player is grateful and in his presentation as blaugrana no shortage of praise for Wenger's words and of course Arsenal.

Cesc is clear articulate speech that morning. For now, the player is now scheduled to arrive late in the afternoon, just in time to see the Super Cup final on television and thus avoid a too noisy arrival. (via SPORT)

Alexis wants debut today and Guardiola does not rule

The former Udinese 'defeated' Giuseppe Rossi in the race for the club and now may begin to show and the sheer quality that holds.


There is a game that every fan dreams of Barcelona player or play and win every season, that is the clash against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu for the curiosity always brings added a win.

Well, Alexis Sanchez could experience firsthand that experience in his first official appearance with the Barca shirt. The end Chile has had little time to train Pep Guardiola's orders, but his physical condition is pretty good and the very technical such a possibility not ruled yesterday in his press conference after the briefing.

"We'll see who has more minutes or can stand better, but Alexis is an older and ready to play. We'll see if you start or play alone for a while, we should expect, "admitted Guardiola, one of the leading proponents, but most of the signing of Alexis. Meanwhile, the player is as crazy as soon debut with his new team and hopes to do tonight ... would be unforgettable.

Alexis first trained with fellow double session on Monday and repeated on Tuesday before flying to France where he played in Montpellier on Wednesday in a friendly for his country to the 'bleus ¿. Then he trained on Thursday afternoon, Friday morning and again yesterday morning session.

The South American is not only one of the expeditions that could live its premiere tonight at the Santiago Bernabeu, and also found in the same situation Fontàs Andreu, Thiago Alcantara and Jonathan dos Santos. In fact, none of the three has ever faced the white set.

The most strange is Thiago, who became a fixture for Guardiola in the final of the season, but did not participate in any of the four classics. Meanwhile, the other two have appeared more sporadically. (via SPORT)

Wenger: "Cesc is now what I care less"


Arsène Wenger was not too much yesterday for comment. The debut of Arsenal in the Premier League at Newcastle was not as expected and the Gunners, Cesc Fabregas and Nasri without the two men will leave the club, could not get the equalizer in a game that was expelled Gervinho, the signing star of the season.

No wonder that when asked yesterday the Frenchman on Cesc, this merely comment that "now is the least I care." Arsene and gives up to exblaugrana and costs about him when it comes to a player who has not, although it has not been made official his move to Barca.

Hence, once the match, Arsene Wenger insisted: "We are on both sides, no man's land. For now, they are Arsenal players. It will keep you informed. " A speech that repeats the pending transfers of officers to her.

Just yesterday, coinciding with the party in Newcastle, said the French coach has already announced to friends his intention to leave the London club when this season ends. (via SPORT)
