UEFA decides today that the Euro Cup will be suspended

first_imgAlthough the regulations in Spain pick up that “The final classification of the competition will have to be decided by mutual agreement between LaLiga and the Federation”, in case of disagreement “it will be the president of the Federation, or the body in which he delegates, who will make the final decision”. The same article is identical in almost all the federations in Europe, and many of them prefer that it is UEFA that sets the formula to avoid conflicts with their own teams. Luis Rubiales He is a manager with decision-making capacity in the matter, since his condition as president of the RFEF joins that of vice-president of UEFA.UEFA competition chief Italian Giorgio Marchetti, He has prepared a series of proposals to put to the vote in today’s conclave. The Euro Cup would go on to be played in 2021 with the same 20 countries that have already achieved their classification, and to which will be added the four that still have to play the play-offs, heats that were due to be held at the end of the month and which are also postponed. The group draw does not vary, so Spain would play against Sweden, Poland and the winner of the tie to be disputed by Bosnia, Ireland, Slovakia and Northern Ireland. In this scenario, the postponement of Euro 2020 would be definitive, regardless of the development that the coronavirus may have in Europe in the coming months.As for European competitions, the project goes through the Final Four formula provided that the pandemic does not force the total suspension of the Champions League and the Europa League. The World Health Organization (WHO) it cannot guarantee UEFA a date not even approximate for full control of the virus, and as long as this does not happen there is nothing guaranteed. The UEFA on Tuesday it has summoned its 55 European federations to reorganize European football due to the coronavirus pandemic. Decisions of transcendence will be made. In the conclave, UEFA will have to make three fundamental resolutions: postponing the European Championship until 2021, choosing the format for concluding European competitions and unifying criteria for naming champions, promotions and relegations. throughout the continent to guarantee “justice and equal merits” in access to the next edition of the Champions and of the Europa League.The organization that Ceferin chairs already has a position taken regarding the champions of League. She is in favor of granting the title to the leader of each championship at the time when it had to be permanently suspended, something that they do not think will happen because the more than likely postponement of the Euro Cup would leave dates free to close the calendar, but always depending that the pandemic can be controlled in time. UEFA would close the following editions of the Champions League and the Europa League taking into account the classification when the leagues were suspended. It would not enter the category drops, something that would leave the federations they could choose the format to solve them. But I would advise the same formula as for naming champion.In the organization, regarding UEFA and Europe, there is only one precedent. We have to go back to 1999, when UEFA, then under the Swedish presidency Lennart Johansson, decided to give the title to Belgrade Partisan, who was the leader of the tournament when he had to be suspended ten days from the end due to the flare-up of the Balkan War.last_img read more

Arteta opens the door to 6 players

first_img5 Mikel Arteta took control of Arsenal midway through the season and settled for the team they gave him on the winter market, except for a few tweaks such as the return of the injured Cédric Soares (Southampton). But once summer arrives it will be time to start building your own project and to meet the objectives for which you were hired. Matteo Guendouzi does not have the same role with his new coach as he did with Unai Emery. The French midfielder plays less than when he arrived and although he was aiming for a future player, a little discussion with Arteta would have been enough to waste minutes. He does not seem to be the type of midfielder that the coach is looking for, who knows that due to his youth and quality they would cash in on him to be able to bring someone who is more suited to what he is looking for.Sokratis Pasathopoulos Sokratis Pasathopoulos usually plays at Arsenal even when they put him on the side. It is a key piece in the current behind of the English set, but the problem is that it may not be in the future. Pablo Marí would occupy his central position with David Luiz and if Soares recovers he would no longer have a place on the right wing. Even more so if Layvin ends up landing Kurzawa (PSG). In addition, his age indicates that although it is now important, in the near future it will be expendable, so the time to sell him would be this summer.Mesut Ozil This project will depend a lot on the future of the Premier League, since it will not be the same to get into positions of Champions Leaguewhat Europa LeagueAnd obviously the budget will be much lower if they don’t get a European place for the next course. While the Spanish coach thinks about how to make next year’s squad and with part of the work done in defense, first he wants to focus on the casualties and thus have more leeway to bring in more and better footballers. As published Mirror, up to six ensemble members gunner they have the door open to leave.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 14 10 Mesut Özil has been the most benefited by the change of coach and despite the fact that the Spanish would like the midfielder to return to what he was, he is aware that his current salary is a major impediment to managing the salary cap. The German has had the label of transferable for a long time, with no teams really interested in taking over his entire record. Arsenal are very willing to listen to offers for him, although if it were not for his record, Arteta would not have so much trouble taking it from him. 77 Premier League* Data updated as of March 17, 2020 29 Ainsley Maitland-Niles is on the exit ramp. The Spanish coach is not convinced by the footballer, whom he has used as a substitute for Bellerín, although lately it was left out of the calls. The youth squad prefers to play indoors than on the right side, and Arteta would have no reason to try to retain him, so he would make it easier for him to find an option that suits the club and the player.Henrikh Mkhitaryan Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the issue that matters most in London. There are few strikers of his level in the market and although he likes the city, his ambition is to play the Champions League, something that is not currently guaranteed. The Barcelona He was interested in him at the time and it would be a great opportunity for the Gabonese, who would decide his future in the summer based on the results obtained. The trick of Arsenal, if he did not succeed, would be to try to renew him or try to surround him with great footballers to convince him that his goals will be achieved in the next course. It will be difficult to change his mind, so if they do not enter the Champions League and knowing that his contract expires in 2021, they would rush to sell him and get a cut for his best player.Ainsley Maitland-Niles fifteen Henrikh Mkhitaryan has fulfilled what was expected of him when he was traded for Alexis Sánchez in one of the worst operations remembered in Premier League history (Neither they nor Manchester United benefited from that). The Armenian player has been loaned in the Rome, highlighting the fair but without shining. Perhaps it is the perfect time to try to sell him (he already said that he did not even discuss the salary because he was not happy in England), especially knowing that you have a sign on ItalyAlthough Arteta would not rule out keeping it if necessary.Matteo Guendouzilast_img read more

Mourinho “Messi or Cristiano? I choose another”

first_imgTottenham coach José Mourinho granted an interview to LiveScore in which they asked him who was the best soccer player of all time. Although many expected him to decide between Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)who did you have in the Real Madrid, and Leo Messi (Barcelona), the two strongest of the last decade, chose Ronaldo Nazario ahead of them. “Ronaldo, the phenomenon. Cristiano and Leo Messi have had longer races, they have been at the top every day for 15 years. But if we talk strictly about talent and ability, nobody beats the Brazilian. When he was in Barcelona with Bobby Robson I realized I was the best player I had ever seen. “The Portuguese met him in the mid-1990s when he joined the Bobby Robson coaching staff at Barcelona.

Fear of injury on the return leg of football: risks and solutions

first_imgThe return to training is already here thanks to the de-escalation that the Government has launched. The restart of the competition, on the contrary, continues in the air, at the mercy of the evolution of the coronavirus pandemic and the pacts between clubs and soccer players. The agreements to work individually seem clear. However, there are differences with group training, with the way of doing the tests, with isolation plans in hotels or sports cities and with the solutions if they appear positive. Despite the fact that the CSD has approved a health protocol to gradually restore normality, the players do not have all of them with them and repeat that they will only abide by the Health orders. The reason supported by AFE to go with lead feet focuses on several points: the respect still infused by the data of deaths in Spain (164 yesterday), the fear of contagion or outbreaks, the fear of injury after so much inactivity and the dread over the new isolation, in the form of concentrations (“unconstitutional”, dixit), with the aim of being able to conclude this season. Clubs see it as widespread psychosis. Rather, experts point out that the state of alarm has led to a certain state of panic.AS has consulted five sports psychologists and psychologists working in the elite to shed some light on these concerns and uncertainty. What are the real risks for soccer players and what are the precautions that clubs must undertake. Despite the fact that the elaborated protocol does not include these professionals among the essential personnel to be with the players in person, many specialists are lending their help electronically. Rafael Mateos, researcher in Sports Psychology at the Autonomous University of Madrid, talks about the risk of injuries: “Injuries are a very complex phenomenon, as they are due to different causes. Among them, stress, which can increase the probability of suffering them. In this way, if they are subjected to stressful situations, such as prolonged confinement added to uncertainty about their future or exposure to possible contagion, it is highly likely that the number of injuries will increase. ” In fact, according to a study by the French footballers’ union, where the season has already been canceled, “three out of four players fear injury”, as “they will multiply by six from the second match”. For this reason, Mateos believes that clubs should carry out an exhaustive control of the stress level of each one of their players: “They have to do it using scientifically validated techniques and reduce said stress level in those players who need it during this time, with the In order to improve their coping with the situation and, therefore, minimize the risk of injury. All this under the supervision of a qualified sports psychologist ”.FIFpro, the international players union, notes that during confinement 18% of female players and 16% of professional players reported situations of stress and anxiety. There are other surveys that even point out the growth on symptoms of depression. So, David Peris, president of the Valencian Community Psychology Association, also points out stress monitoring as decisive: “It appears when we perceive a situation as threatening, before which we launch a series of psychological and physiological resources to deal with it. In principle it is adaptive, since it makes us better prepare for a complicated situation, but if we are not able to control it, it generates problems for us due to bad stress. One way to control it is to decrease the perception of threat: if I know what I can do and feel safe in this situation, stress does not appear or I control its responses, so that it does not harm me. The uncertainty that athletes may have regarding what will happen is key ”.Other dangersSeveral consulted professional club doctors support theories that the number of injuries will now skyrocket. As it happened in the NFL in 2011. Then there was a 14-week hiatus, due to a serious labor conflict, and the competition went from having five annual Achilles Tendon breaks, on average, to 12 in the first month back to work, of which 10 were in the first 12 days. “When athletes suffer a high level of stress, problems related to sleep, attention deficit, diet, training appear, there are memory difficulties, increased muscle tension, problems in decision-making and, among other things, increases the risk of injury “ David Peris assures. Alba Villamediana, another psychologist of reference in Spanish sports, considers the work carried out during these two months of confinement to be key. since, in addition, the preseason that begins now will be very peculiar, with a lot of individual training and without friendlies: “Whoever has known how to balance their emotions will benefit. The players who have been able to take advantage of this break as an opportunity will be the ones who will come out with the most resources on the field when this is over. That is, the players who previously stood out physically or technically can be left behind, and it will not always be the one with the best skills, but the one with the most attitude. Fear is an emotion that will accompany the players, like everyone else. And it’s not a bad thing: you just have to know how to collaborate with him and not fight him. Fear is a natural traveling companion and is there to protect players so that they do not exceed their demands, and that this can lead to injury. Coaches have a great responsibility: where to focus their players’ attention so that they cooperate, help each other and focus on daily improvement, until the desired performance can be achieved little by little. ”JESUS ​​SANCHO RODRIGUEZ (SANCHOFOTO) & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 17/18 Ricardo de la Vega, to the right of Seedorf, in his time as a sports psychologist at Deportivo.JESUS ​​SANCHO RODRIGUEZ (SANCHOFOTO) (DIARIO AS) That’s where Ricardo de la Vega is focused with the footballers he works with. The doctor in Psychology in the Autonomous, who went through Rayo, Deportivo and the Cameroon team, sees it like this: “Adaptation at the psychological level to the new situation seems necessary, since the head will play an equal or more important role than the physical. The conditional dimensions, the personality and the motivation will be key to achieve emotional stability, since the one who plays to try to win the League will not be the same as the one who plays to descend. To the general panorama, the soccer players will have to add an added stress and in many cases the frustration. And that there is no money or test that can remedy it. Players will have to adapt to the new scenario, which implies doing it on a cognitive, emotional and behavioral level. The risks would lie in the possible imbalances at these levels due to not optimally accepting and adapting. ” The footballer needs to work in a group and that cannot be achieved, in the best case scenario until June. One more problem to be solved: “Cohesion is essential to perform well individually and as a team. You have to make sense of pre-league confinement first. It must be worth the effort. ‘Why am I confined?’ Then goals should be set in phases, starting with the short term. I must feel that what I do contributes to improve my performance. And then the time must be optimized. It is not only the time of field training that matters. These aspects must be worked on, the leadership and emotional response of the team. ”Finally, Sandra Tabasco, sports and health psychologist, psychologist at PROAD (Sports Aid and Care Program) and CSD, talks about controlling expectations: “How it will affect two months of stoppage to athletes will depend on each individual case and the reality of each and his family. And that will influence how they face the return. Almost always that fear exists, this situation is totally new, it has not consisted of a vacation.
