Roma’s Szczesny out for up to six weeks after Suarez clash

first_img CEST Szczesny will definitely miss the Serie A games against Sassuolo, Sampdoria, Carpi and Palermo and the Champions League clash with BATE Borisov in Blearus. It’s possible he could return for the game with Empoli on October 17. “It’s a serious setback for us because he was adapting to the team and our way of playing,” the French coach said, although he is “hopeful” the stopper’s recovery time will be “as quick as possible.”  The Polish goalkeeper, 25 and on loan from Arsenal, was playing his first European game for Roma. He suffered a dislocated finger in his left hand competing for a ball with Luis Suarez and was replaced by Morgan de Sanctis. 17/09/2015 Injured at the start of the second half in the match between Roma and Barcelona in the Champions League, Wojciech Szczesny will be out of action for a month, with some reports that could even reach six weeks.  Roma boss Rudi Garcia lamented the news as he had only brought Szczesny in this summer to take the place of De Sanctis, who is now 38.  Upd. at 17:51 Enzo Palladinilast_img read more

Florentino Perez not convinced about Keylor Navas

first_img 27/10/2015 Real Madrid stopper Keylor Navas is the new idol of the fans. A player that Florentino perez is still not putting his faith in to be the main goalkeeper for the team’s new project. The Costa Rican, signed for €10m in August 2014, has filled the gap left by Iker Casillas and the failed signing of David de Gea from Manchester United.  Alejandro Alcazar Upd. at 20:09 Casillas left in the summer after a disappointing season, joining Porto, and Perez wanted De Gea to replace him. After a long stand-off Madrid moved for the goalkeeper on deadline day, but the move failed to be completed by midnight and the deal was off.  CET Regardless of whether Navas becomes the hero of the team this season, Perez will move again for De Gea next summer. He made the goalkeeper a promise and he will stick by it.last_img read more

Solskjaer : I am the best person for Manchester United

Powered by Firework Manchester United have lost 7 out their last 9 games and a 4 nil thrashing at Goodison park on Sunday will do them no good as new permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure to revitalize United into the same form that the Norwegian brought along in the beginning.Advertisement Asked if he is the best person for United, Solskjær said: “I would like to say yes but it’s not down to me to say that. I’m confident in my team and myself to take this challenge on, it’s a big challenge and when I came in here I said I’m going to enjoy every single second. I don’t like losing but it’s a challenge when you go through bad results.”Advertisement “I would like to think so. I like all these boys – I love them,” he said. “But I’ve got to manage for the club and I am managing the club and the players – I’ve got to put all my effort into making sure we do what is right for the club.“There’s always a crisis at Manchester United whenever you lose a game or two – Manchester City and Liverpool are [the only] two teams who’ve taken more points in last 18 games. The boys have done fantastic. We’ve lost three out of the last five league games – that’s a bit too many, but that’s football. The way we lost at Everton was the worst performance.”Advertisement On being asked about how OGS will handle Pep’s masterful tactics midweek , he said “We’ve got to be ready for their pressing so we’ve got to defend well, got to be ready for [their] aggression, they will snap at your heels and kick you. There will be fouls, absolutely no doubt about it, and when you watch those games they commit so many players forward. This is the best game we could ask for with [our] players hurt, as they definitely were.“We had a meeting after the game and all the players were definitely disappointed and really hurt by that performance. The City game is the perfect one, there’s no hiding place on the pitch and the fans will back you if you give that effort.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Javier Aguirre: Football is just a game and I don’t look back

first_img 15/03/2020 How was a game of football in your neighbourhood? It’s the place that my parents chose when they left Spain for Mexico because in this moment it was a young place, one of the newest in Mexico City. You could play in the street, there weren’t so many cars, you walked to school, there was a park where you could play all types of sport. It was very calm. There were a lot of Spanish there, in the 50s there was a second wave of immigrants because in Spain the situation wasn’t the best. CET Do you remember your first day in a professional dressing room? @GuillemBalague Guillem Balagué No! (laughs). I’m lucky that my wide, who I’ve been with longer than football has, has always liked football a lot but is interested in doing other things. She organises me, tells me ‘we’re going to dinner today’ or ‘we’re doing this’. And I put it into perspective, and say ‘we lost, but it’s not my wife or kids’ fault.’ It’s a job and that’s it, it ends there. It’s not all of life. I’ve lost 20,000 battles and that’s it, in the end you walk home calmly and that’s it. I won’t watch games I win or lose months later. I don’t look back. Upd. at 13:19 It was different, it ended with everyone on good terms, winners and losers, we’d play another game, we joined up to talk about other things. If the game was blues against reds, 11 against 11, for three points, there was a bit more intensity but it always ended there. How was Colonia Lindavista? In press conferences you speak of optimism…  I never would use the media to send a message to players or referees. You’ll never see me criticise them or say this board has given me players I didn’t want. No, no, no. I would tell that to the board or a player to their face. These are unwritten rules I have. If I have something to tell my group I will get them in and tell them. It’s not fair to criticise the refs because they never come out and criticise me. IN SPORT.ES Yes, you felt like you’d come to a place where there are codes, hierarchies, including groups hard to get into. There everyone earns, they look at you like you’re little, who is this? You have to be strong because you’re new. You get to the bus or the dining room and all the places are half taken,and you don’t understand because everyone is equal. You have to earn your place. As a player did you have to fight not to go down? RELATED STORIES From those games, to…I left the neighbourhood to sign for Club America, professional football, a coach with demands. After six months I signed my first contract and we say there I lost my ‘virginity’, and while I wouldn’t say I stopped enjoying it but you start to see it as a job. You lose a little of the not caring if you win or lose, in neighbourhood football you respect opponents and above all the referee. Leganes coach Aguirre fears Messi free-kicks ahead of Barça meeting You’re a latino but don’t see football as life or death. Javier Aguirre: “El fútbol es solamente un juego” As a player no, in the three teams I was in, in Mexico. When I got to Osasuna in the 1986-87 season I was presented, entered the dressing room and the president spoke of not going down. It stood out to me because I wasn’t used to that, having come from a World Cup. I broke my leg soon, I wasn’t there long, but it’s very different, you have to be very solid, no margin for error, you can’t let pessimism consume you or contaminate you, it’s hard to fight it. Leganes coach Javier Aguirre spoke to SPORT. The Mexican was born in Colonia Lindavista, in the north of Mexico City.last_img read more
