One of the points of the discord between Igor Angulo and Górnik Zabrze was the age of the Spanish striker, who on January 26 met 36 years. “It is a number that is less and less important. Those that matter are those of the statistics and they reflect that I now help my team more than 15 years ago. That is what has to be valued. There are teams that look at the age , but most begin to focus solely on performance, “says Angulo, who has been interested in virtually all teams in the Polish First Division:” They have called me, but for now I don’t value playing in another Polish team. It is clear that if I have to do it I will do it because the family comes first, but for the same money I would go play outside. It would be very difficult for the president and the fans to see me in another shirt. “Although there are many teams that have knocked on the door of Igor Angulo, the Spaniard has only revealed the name of one, the Adana Dermispor, who is currently active in the Second Division of Turkey: “I have done it because it is a club that has been wanting me for a year and a half. In all the transfer windows they have made an offer, but Górnik has rejected them all.” The former Athletic Club values ”their constancy” and the fact that “the economic conditions they offer are much better than those here.” “I have an age and the economic issue matters. Although I feel good it is a fact that the end of my career is closer than when I was 25 years old. And if players like Villa or Torres, who have their life and their great-grandchildren’s lives resolved, hit one last ball before retiring imagine me, I don’t have that money“, discovers Angulo. He is 36 years old, but he feels “better than when he was 25”. Igor Angulo (Bilbao, 1984) expands in Poland the best moment of his sports career. The forward formed in the quarry of Athletic Club accumulates 81 goals with the Górnik Zabrze, the team he came to when he was playing in Second and with which he reached to play the previous phase of the Europa League and become the ‘Pichichi’ of the Ekstraklasa. The idyll between club and player is total, but their paths could be very close to separating: “Here I feel at home and people love me a lot. After having achieved so many things it will be very difficult to leave, but the family is first“.After several months negotiating the renewal of his contract, which expires next June, Bartosz Sarnowski, president of Górnik Zabrze, announced that he will not improve the offer that already rests on the table of Igor Angulo. The Spaniard considers it insufficient and, if nothing changes, he will leave the team next summer, once the season ends. “They offered me a year, then one plus one and then two. That was one of my conditions, but economically I have much better offers from other sites and I have to value them. I’m willing to lose money for staying, but everything has a limit“, Angulo reveals. Although Igor Angulo is going through a great personal moment, Górnik Zabrze does not go through the best time in its history. The template of the tricolor painting was reduced during the past summer market and that translated into more than 100 days without knowing the victory in the league: “We fixed it at the end with two consecutive wins at home. And thankfully, because the fans were already starting to mosquear. We have to improve but we also need signings. “The Bilbao striker confesses to being an” ambitious “player and, although the season did not start well, he is the top scorer of the team with nine goals.” I hope to score more and help the team not to descend. Last year we suffered a lot and this course we are on the same path, “adds the Spanish.To fulfill the team’s salvation, Igor Angulo will have the Madrid player at his side Jesus Jimenez, second top scorer of the team with eight goals. “It was difficult for him to adapt and the first months were bad, he even received whistles from the fans, but the master detected his talent, gave him confidence and has made him one of the most important players in the team. It is capital for us and a great professional. He deserves everything that is happening to him, “Angulo values. Between the two they have scored more than 70% of Górnik Zabrze’s goals in this edition of Ekstraklasa, which returns on February 8 after the winter break.” preseason becomes long and the friendlies are a pain. What I want is to compete, “says the exleon. Igor Angulo An icon in PolandIgor Angulo is not a footballer anymore. In the almost four years he accumulates wearing the Górnik Zabrze shirt, the Spanish striker has become an icon of Polish football. That is why the fans of the ‘mining’ club decided to raise money to help the club in its renewal: “It was an incredible initiative, it says a lot about what people love me. I have given a lot for this club, but what that they have brought to me is incalculable. It is a very nice gesture and it means a lot to me because the love of your hobby is one of the most important things. “Angulo also feels “proud” of having been chosen best Zabrze athlete in 2019. “It is a wonder that you value your work so much. Of the three full years that I have been in Poland I have been all three on the podium. I, above all, work for myself and my family, but that the people around you value you so much it is very big, “the Spanish forward appreciates, that next February could be made with another award, the one of the best foreign footballer of the Ekstraklasa:” It is a very big recognition for both me and Górnik Zabrze. And also for the Spanish soccer players from Poland (the other nominees are Jorge Félix, from Piast Gliwice, and Jesús Imaz, from Jagiellonia.) Since I arrived there are many of us who are giving a great performance and that makes more and more arrive. “Górnik Zabrze & nbsp; (Facebook) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Igor Angulo Iggor Angulo, Spanish striker of Polish Górnik Zabrze, celebrates one of his goals against Jagiellonia during an Ekstraklasa match.Górnik Zabrze (Facebook) “If players like Villa or Torres hit a final shot imagine me …”
Under this premise, it seems clear that the costumes have definitely made the cross to Abidal, whose only way out is to present the resignation, to avoid greater evils and make the snowball even bigger.Remember that the fuse that has caused such a fire was caused by Abidal to imply that with Ernesto Valverde there were several players who “did not work much.” Messi’s response, through social networks, was as blunt as it was bleeding: “If you say this, say names because if you’re not dirtying everyone. And also assume your responsibilities in sports management as we do the players in the field ”. In case President Josep Maria Bartomeu was missing more arguments when making a decision regarding the future of his technical secretary, Eric Abidal, this Wednesday before the morning session, sand convened an urgent meeting between the captains to assess the events that occurred in the last hours, with the statements of Eric Abidal as a thread.From the meeting between the captains (Messi, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto), the group’s unanimous and absolute support for Leo Messi’s response to Abidal’s insinuations was confirmed. Even the French clan, unconditional friend of the still technical secretary, supported his captain.

The world’s primary Colombian tennis participant in doubles He introduced the mandatory proof for the Worldwide Tennis Federation to cancel the penalty and instantly allow it to compete once more.“My dose of boldenone was extraordinarily minimal and I had achieved a take a look at ten days in the past.

He will even be competing in Acapulco.
Bale: It hurts to see him roam the countryside. His first part was dismal, without overflow or danger, but also without attitude, oblivious to what was happening on the grass. It worsened every ball that came to him. Something Zidane must have told him at the break, as he improved ostensibly, pressing much harder on Celta’s possessions and looking for Benzema with more zeal. Even so, very little of the Welshman, who took the yellow for an ugly entry over Rafinha. He left in 84 ’for Mendy to enter. The Bernabéu fired him with a mixture of whistles and applause, showing the division between the fans: between those who believe there is still a player to rescue and those who believe he has lost all credit.Benzema: little danger of the French during the 90 minutes, which still showed good chemistry with Hazard on the left side. Out of his boots came the ball that ended in the penalty that Ramos would make 2-1. But the center forward of Madrid must contribute more in attack, left no notable shots saved in the prolongation, when he had two occasions: on one, he riveted horrible after a good chest control; in the other, his left-footed shot was cleared by Rubén.Hazard: the best white attacker, despite leading without playing since he was injured against PSG on November 26. Its ownership surprised by premature, but proved justified. The Belgian wore rhythm, overflow and quite daring, well above the level with which the course began. He lacked release more at the auction, had chances and did not take advantage of them. But he provoked the 2-1 penalty, taking advantage of a somewhat brownish Ruben. He left his place to Vinicius in 74 ‘and the Bernabéu recognized his great game, which anticipates much more on his part.Vinicius: it came out in 74 ’by Hazard. On the left, he sought to extend the white game with starts, although without much luck. Zidane corrected him more than once. He left to the right, where he could not shine either.Modric: entered 82 ’instead of Kroos. Something was wrong with their snatching in dangerous areas, the party asked for pause and touch when it came out.Mendy: entered 84 ’by Bale. He left to finish tying the triumph and found himself face to face with Mina’s draw. He tried on the left in the short time he had. Courtois: Little can be blamed on Smolov 0-1, it was sold and covered as the Russian’s shot could. He saved Madrid in the first half with a stop at the top of Aidoo that would have meant 0-2. Mina’s 2-2 also caught him sold, with no room for maneuver.Carvajal: as usual, omnipresent in attack, although little harmful, failing the centers. Although Bale helped him very little to appear in attack in advantageous positions. Mina got away in 2-2, he had to close it with more fortitude.Varane: serious error in the 0-1 of Smolov, that pass was his thing and he measured badly, it happened close and did not cut the assistance of Aspas. He suffered to contain Moaña and the Russian, although he gained security over the minutes. Well at the start of the ball, especially when Madrid launched into the attack in the second half. In 2-2 it also gave the feeling that that pass line was his, although only Denis Suarez imagined that pass.Bouquets: The 0-1 also caught him off-site, with the rear open, although the major responsibility went to Varane. In the second half he scored two goals, although only one went up to the scoreboard: first he was knocked out for offside, well marked; Then he scored the 2-1 penalty, a luck in which he has been infallible. He claimed a penalty in the extension that Alberola Rojas did not grant.Marcelo: surprising its alignment, with Mendy with four yellow and the Classic two days away. Celta’s goal came by his flank, although he cannot be blamed for great responsibilities. He improved the tone of the last matches in attack, combining well with Hazard and Benzema. He served Kroos 1-1 with a good pass to the front of the area. Green sprouts for the Brazilian.Valverde: discreet Uruguayan party in attack, did not show much his deployment or his arrival, although the back of five Celtic men did not help him in that regard. In defense, as always, very intense to raise the pressure.Casemiro: something heavy with a ball, although with a lot of security. Far from his best version, he tested his good shot in the first half and he had little to score a goal, but his shot went high.Kroos: the German was the best white midfielder, long. Very safe with the ball, rising to the first white pressure and venting with your changes of direction. To this he added his good punch to score the 1-1, despite doing it with his bad leg, the left. His hit was excellent. Good commitment in defense. He left by Modric, cheered by the Bernabéu.

The challenge of salvation is not, for him FuenlabradaI challenge anyone. It’s a challenge for old rockers. For seasoned footballers in the category (even in the First) over the years exercising, more than ballast, as an ally. Experience counts. And for Fuenla, it is a key factor. With an average age of 27.8 years, it is the seventh most veteran staff of Second. Only Albacete, Racing, Oviedo, Cádiz, Elche and Rayo surpass him.The age difference between the leaders in seniority, Albacete, and Fuenlabrada is small. Only one year. It’s not much. With the youngest team in the category the distance is greater. He Almeria is the ‘yogurt’ of Second. Just 24.9 years on average. Fuenla has almost three. Of the 25 men that José Ramón Sandoval has on his staff, eight are above the age of thirty. They are Mikel Iribas, Hugo Fraile, Chico, Oriol Riera, Biel Ribas, Cristóbal Márquez, David Prieto and Juama Marrero. These last three are already above 35.

Rumors about Mbappé’s future have soared in recent days after AS reported on Leonardo’s pressure measure, which is willing to let him go free in 2022 if he doesn’t renew, rather than accept any offer for him over the summer. from 2021.About his suitors, as is logical, any great world club would be interested in having Mbappé, although the French crack has never hidden his preference for Madrid, a club he was close to reaching when he signed for PSG and with whom he has winked constantly.The call of Klopp that they assure on this website has occurred adds another rival in the recruitment by the player, who If he maintains his pulse of not renewing his current contract with PSG (ends in 2022) he will be the center of all the rumors in the coming months. The Parisian team is willing to offer him a contract that places him at the same salary level as Neymar (above 30 million net per season), so the club that wants to hire him will have to approach that offer. Jurgen Klopp, according to the French website le10sport.com, has called Mbappé’s father to find out the situation of the French crack and assess whether it would be possible to approach his recruitment for the current European champion in the future.This website, however, also states that despite Klopp’s first-person call to the footballer’s environment, the English team would have few options to tackle a contract of this magnitude. They assure in this French medium, which is also echoed in England, that other teams such as Real Madrid, Juventus, City or United are the ones with the most options to make an operation of these economic characteristics viable.
