Florentine Pérez and Villar made a pact the sanction to Mourinho

The meeting has already been named: El Pacto de Las Rozas.


Sooner or later everything is just discovering. At the time seemed very strange that Jose Mourinho is sanctioned only two games and 600 euros fine for the assault committed against Tito Vilanova in the Super Cup match played at the Camp Nou. Recall that the Portuguese introduced a violent one finger in the eye of second Guardiola , an action that went around the world and caused widespread astonishment.

Well, well, two months later, has released the most likely reason for this ridiculous penalty. As reported in 'The Confidential', Ángel María Villar, president of la Real Federación Española de Fúbtol (RFEF) and Florentine Pérez , president of Real Madrid , agreed to the penalty in the offices, where it would be a more binding action between the RFEF White House and the detriment of the interests Blaugrana.

All indications are that it was the first white president who pulled the strings of the puppet, with the idea of straightening relations between the two entities, somewhat deteriorated since 'Flore' supported Gerardo Gonzalez Otero as a candidate for president of the RFEF, at the expense of Villar . In 'Confidential' you can read that: " Perez and Villar came up positions at the time in which Ramon Calderon left the Board of the RFEF. Three months later, the white president became part of it, but always present a point of distancing which grew out of some of the conflicts between Mourinho , referees and federation committees last season and had to round off what happened at the Camp Nou on 17 August. "

In the same media is narrated as the squires of Villar and Pérez , José Ángel Sánchez and Jorge Perez , met with the idea of contributing to the happy link between both entities, to the extent that the agreement 'sealed' has been dubbed 'El Pacto de Las Rozas', and immediately after the first action he has been the penalty Mourinho just two games.

Recall that after the scene around the Super Cup, Villar said in a federal board meeting was concerned about the climate of tension which was immersed in Spanish football, with excess distilled scenes of violence. Florentino demonstrated its waist to cross out the tactical error made ​​in the last Assembly of delegates by stating in public that Madrid did not have to like the staged image in the Camp Nou. Then Mourinho grudgingly acknowledged his wrong attitude. And after the sum of all, the penalty remained only two parties to understand the pyrrhic Committee chaired by Florez that the Portuguese did not intend to hurt Villanova. (via MD)

Milan still have to pay 24 'kilos' for Swedish.


What things are. Ibrahimovic, the surly player who last summer left fuming Barcelona Guardiola could hold the key to a very pleasing transfer technician: Thiago Silva. But the story is as follows.

When Pep sports informed the management did not want to see Ibra-the most expensive signing in the history of Barcelona, ​​or painting the Camp Nou, Rosell found the solution to the problem with an assignment of one year from Swedish to Milan and a subsequent compulsory purchase option worth 24 million euros. The transfer period expired last summer and now the Italian club must meet the payment of those 24 kilos. Apparently, and according to this newspaper has learned, an entity owned by Silvio Berlusconi has serious difficulties to meet that amount and Barcelona, ​​far from seeing in it a serious drawback (and taking into account the delicate economy) is taken as a great opportunity.

And the reason is none other than Thiago Silva.

The defense really like, because it operates seamlessly with both feet, has good ball out, is potent in the air and can also act in the midfield. In addition, the Barcelona plant something short walks. Without Puyol neither I Itched, Guardiola displaces Mascherano oa Busquets (both midfielders) to the axis of the rear without counting, at least at the moment, with Fontàs.

Thiago Silva is an old dream of Barcelona, ​​which asked him last summer. The player himself revealed some contacts that were not successful.

Generation of 87 coincides for 27 minutes

Piqué, Messi and Cesc, who all played together for the youth team ten years ago, have played just 27 minutes of football on the same pitch this season. With all three on the field, the team has scored one goal and conceded none.


When Cesc arrived last summer, a lot was said about the generation born in 1987 that are now together in the first team. Almost three months later, Piqué, Cesc and Messi have only played together for 27 minutes, not counting time added on for stoppages. Injuries to the midfielder and defender have meant that the players that first played alongside each other between 2001 and 2003 (while Piqué and Cesc also played on together for another three years) have not shared much time on the pitch.

The first time they played together was on August 17 in the second leg of the Supercup against Real Madrid, Cesc’s first official appearance for the club. He came on in the 81st minute, with the score 2-2, and played a part in Messi’ deciding goal that won the first title of the season. Eight minutes of football, and he already had a winner’s medal.

Piqué’s injury meant they wouldn’t play together again until September 24, against Atletico Madrid (5-0). Piqué and Messi both started and Cesc came on in the 53rd minute, 19 minutes later, with no goals scored either way, Piqué was substituted.

Piqué was suspended for the game with BATE Borisov, and then Cesc and Piqué were both sidelined through injury, meaning they have not appeared together since. Piqué has just been declared fit again, so we once again have the chance to see all three former youth players on the field at the same time. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
