Castilla lowers salary

first_imgReal Madrid Castilla will also be affected by the coronavirus crisis. As AS has been able to know, the players of the white subsidiary will see their wages reduced by between 10% and 20%, depending on whether the competition resumes. If the season ends, the reduction will be only 10%, while if no game is played again, their wages will be reduced by 20%.It is not an ERTE, but an agreement between the club and the footballers. The reduction will occur from the gross total of the season for each footballer. Castilla’s salary cost is approximately 6.8 million euros gross per season. That is, this measure will mean for Madrid 680,000 euros in savings if the competition resumes and 1.36 million if no more is played. During this week the footballers of the team led by Raúl thought that the salary reduction measure that will be carried out in the first team would not affect them. Nevertheless, During the morning of this Wednesday there was a conversation between Ramón Martínez, director of the Real Madrid youth team, and Álvaro Fidalgo, captain of Castilla. In it the white leader has communicated the decision to lower their salary and the captain has been in charge of communicating it to the rest of the staff.This decision was quite surprising among the subsidiary’s players, since they thought that it would not affect them. Despite this, they understand the difficult situation the country is going through and the feeling was one of surprise rather than anger. Although they compete in Segunda B, in Castilla all the players have professional salaries.Castilla are currently seventh in Group I of Segunda B. They are five points from the positions that give access to the playoff promotion to Segunda. The club had high hopes that the subsidiary would enter that playoff after Reinier and Marc Gual’s reinforcements, both arrived in the past winter market. This is Raúl’s first season as a branch coach, after he was named last summer.last_img read more

Atlético seemed very interested before the coronavirus pandemic crisis. They also call us from Valencia, Villarreal, Celta de Vigo, Real Sociedad because they know the player’s transfer conditions. His style is very suitable for the Spanish league. “ Several teams in the Spanish league follow in the footsteps of young Mustafa Kapi, the very young talent of Galatasaray. At only 17 years old, he is one of the young men with the most projection in the Turkish youth academy. A versatile player, he can perform in various positions in midfield.

Aubameyang, at balance price

first_imgPremier League* Data updated as of April 29, 2020 It seems increasingly clear that the paths of Arsenal and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang separate. The footballer is happy in London and its performance in the Emirates Stadium It has been good, something that cannot be said about the squad in general during this season. However, the footballer has the ambition to dispute the next Champions League and whether the Premier League resumes as if it does not, it will be a difficult thing to do as gunner in the ensemble that he now directs Mikel Arteta. The striker ends his contract in 2021 and the best the English can do, knowing that it will not renew, is to sell it in the next transfer window so that it does not leave at zero cost the following year. The problem is that its price will not be too high. Being 30 years old, close to finishing his contract and showing his desire to play in a competition that seems complicated for his club makes his new appraisal, according to the English media, go to 34 million euros. 14 This is a price that all teams will undoubtedly want to pay, Since it adapts to the pocket more than most cracks with the intention of leaving and taking into account the quality of the very fast Gabonese player, offers will not be lacking. For example, there has been talk of Manchester United or Barcelona, ​​which is still looking for a nine, although Lautaro Martínez is the priority. Inter Milan, owner of the footballer, now seems the best placed to sign him, since if Mauro Icardi does not return and they end up selling the Argentine, they will need an attacker like Aubameyang to continue the good season they have done so far.last_img read more

first_imgTwo months have passed since Eibar’s last victory in the league this season (2019-2020), which has been stopped for almost seven weeks by the coronavirus.On Saturday, February 29, the First Division team from Gipuzkoa beat Levante in Ipurua (3-0), which has never won at the Eibar stadium. Although this time the Valencian team had several opportunities to get ahead on the scoreboard, they did not and lost in a duel on Matchday 26.Those trained by José Luis Mendilibar were more successful before the goal and won with two goals from Charles and another from Orellana, which allowed them to break a streak of 4 games without winning and reach 27 points.The score is the same as Eibar now looks, since the Eibar team then lost twice in a row at Ipurua – they played three games in a row at home – against Mallorca (1-2) on Saturday in a match on matchday 27, and Real Sociedad (1-2) on Tuesday, March 10.Eibar-Real Sociedad was the first football game in history played behind closed doors in Spain by COVID-19. Gipuzkoa’s First Division derby was played in Ipurua three weeks after it was postponed due to air pollution due to a fire at a landfill in Zaldibar. It was a match on Matchday 24 that should have been played on February 16, but in the end it was played on March 10 without spectators in the stands.Aitor saved Charles a penaltyAt Eibar-Levante the most positive thing for the Valencians was the performance of their goalkeeper, Aitor Fernández, who was the best in the match. The Levante goalkeeper from Gipuzkoa made numerous interventions – he is the one who makes the most stops in Primera – and stopped a penalty kick taken badly by Charles Dias.Those led by Paco López, who came from winning the Real Madrid leader in Ciutat de Valencia, missed their chances and returned to show that they continue to receive many goals as visitors.Charles overtook the locals in the 27th minute by touching a ball that had been headed by Orellana, coming to rest with 1-0. As soon as the second half started, Charles himself put the second goal (m. 47) on the pass from Sergi Enrich. Although the Spanish-Brazilian striker was able to make his third goal from the fateful point, Aitor stopped the penalty that allowed his team to continue with hopes. But already in the end, Orellana made the final 3-0 pass by Sergi Enrich. Yoel played for Eibar; Arbilla, Paulo Oliveira, Pedro Bigas, José Angel ‘Cote’; Pedro León (De Blasis, m. 83), Pape Diop, Cristóforo, Orellana; Charles (Escalante, m. 77) and Sergi Enrich (Kike García, m. 87).Levante lined up Aitor Fernández; Jorge Miramón, Postigo, Bruno González, Toño García; Morales, Vukcevic (Sergio León, m. 66), Campaña, Bardhi; Roger and Borja Mayoral (Melero, m. 65).Igor Jauregi’s birthdayThe 29th was also the birthday of Igor Jauregi, an Eibar psychologist, who is helping the Barça players who are confined at home by the coronavirus to stay mentally strong at a distance.The ex-footballer of Eibar and Real Sociedad, who has turned 46 years old, played for the Barça team in two different periods (seasons 1997-1998 and 2001-2002). Igor Jauregi (Tolosa, 1974) arrived in Ipurua in 1997, at the age of 23, and made his debut in the Second Division with Periko Alonso as coach.The good role of the midfielder from Toulouse in Ipurua in the 1997-1998 campaign allowed him to make the leap to Real Sociedad, where he enjoyed the First Division for 9 years (from 1998-1999 to 2006-2007), when he had to withdraw due to physical problems after having played 135 matches in the highest category. During his career, Jauregi demonstrated his versatility by converting himself into central defense, which allowed him to play regularly, either as a midfielder or behind.In the midst of his realistic journey, he returned on loan to Eibar in the 2001-2002 season to recover from an injury. Again, his arrival in Ipurua helped him greatly. His good role in the 12 league games he played with the Barça team trained by Blas Ziarreta allowed him to return to Real Sociedad in the second round in the same 2001-2002 campaign.His last league game for Barça – in total he played 50 – was unforgettable, Eibar-Levante (7-0) in Ipurua on Wednesday November 7, 2001, as it is the biggest win scored by Eibarres in all its history in Second division.In that historic last duel with Eibar, Igor Jauregi played central defense with Blas Ziarreta, in which another player loaned by Real Sociedad, José Félix Guerrero (brother of Julen Guerrero), scored 3 goals, while Egoitz Sukia scored 2 goals. , and one was achieved by Jorge Sánchez and Gaizka Garitano (current coach of Athletic Club), who opened the scoring in the first minute. Also contributing to the win were Manolo Almunia (the 2001-2002 season ended with the Zamora trophy being awarded as the goalkeeper with the fewest goals scored in Second A), Luis Prieto, Jon Solaun (both signed later by Athletic Club), and Aitor Aldeondo, who it was also on loan from Real (as was Peiremans, which did not premiere at Eibar).last_img read more
