first_imgOn January 7, 2007, Marcelo debuted in Riazor before Deportivo by replacing Míchel Salgado. 13 years later, the left back has played 496 games in which he has achieved 20 titles: 4 Champions League, 4 Club World Cups, 3 European Super Cups, 4 Suspenders, two King’s Cups and 3 Spanish Super Cups The Brazilian, already recovered from his injury in the soleus, will seek to start against Valencia. The side blows the sails in an awkward situation: during this season he is having a lot of competition with Mendy on the left side. The Frenchman has played 11 games, two more than Marcelo. On the other hand, injuries are being his main obstacle to haggling: three medical parties this season (elongation in the biceps femoris, posttraumatic cervicodorsalgia and a muscle injury in the left soleus). Marcelo, who signed for Madrid in 2006, is the second Real Madrid captain and only beats him Ramos in veterania (2005). In his road map he has the objective of reaching 500 meetings as a Madrid player: the side would be devoted as the thirteenth with more games in history. Ahead has other myths: Chendo (497 games), Roberto Carlos (527), Guti (542), Míchel (559), Pirri (561), Camacho (577), Hierro (601), Gento (601), Ramos (628), Santillana (645 ), Sanchís (710), Casillas (725) and Raúl (741).In addition, he also faces the difficult milestone of being the third defense with the most goals in Madrid: the Brazilian has 36 goals and is 32 Roberto Carlos It will remain for history his goal against Atlético in the final of the Tenth.last_img read more

first_imgGomez provoked and scored the penalty with which Tenerife got into the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey, round in which he will face Athletic. After scoring from eleven meters, the striker jumped the billboard of Heliodoro Rodríguez López and celebrated it with the Tenerife public, after which he put his right hand to his face and marked four positions, on both sides, up and down. Dani Gómez starts to shine in Tenerife. The striker, assigned by Real Madrid to the Tenerife team, went through serious difficulties upon arrival on the island, couples to the poor performance of the white team. But the change of coach (López Garai was dismissed, Rubén Baraja arrived) has meant a change of face for Gómez, which accumulates six titles in the last seven days and has already made four goals this course, in addition to delivering two assists. The last of those goals, against Valladolid in the Copa del Rey, led to a curious celebration. His celebration went unnoticed, whose recipients are his parents; well, in fact, what Dani Gómez did was say “mom” and “dad” in sign language (The movement from side to side mentions the mother; the one from the forehead to the chin, the father). The reason is that Eva, a parent of the striker assigned by Madrid in Tenerife, is currently studying sign language like ‘hobbie’And her son wanted to have a detail with her and her father, Míchel, after scoring what is probably the most important goal he has scored for the moment as a professional. Gomez has a brother who is still part of the Real Madrid quarry: Eric, a member of Cadet A who runs Tristán Celador.last_img read more

first_img“Woodward is being a disaster as an executive and has to leave. A lot of people have told him but he seems not to listen, because he has put a salary of 4 million a year. So we decided to pay him a visit and tell him to his face. We couldn’t talk to him but hopefully he understands the message because we’re not going to disappear. We are not going to do nothing while ruining our club, “ sources close to the group assured the newspaper The Sun.Manchester United condemned what happened through an official statement. “Manchester United condemns the incident on the outskirts of the house of one of our employees. We know that everyone in football supports us. We will work with the Manchester police to identify the attackers. Anyone found guilty will be expelled from the club for life. That fans express an opinion is one thing but trying to endanger someone’s life is something very different. There is no justification for this, “said the club. A group of about 20 Manchester United fans attacked the home of the executive vice president of the Mancunian club, Ed Woodward, on Tuesday night. The group showed up at the door of Woodward’s home, sprayed the entrance door to the farm and put several flares lit above the wall.At first, according to the newspaper The Sun, they were calling the telephone for a long time and, receiving no response, decided to retaliate against the property of the vice president. This newspaper says that Woodward, his wife and their children were not at home while all this was happening.This action, they say, is one more protest against Woodward’s management at the helm of Manchester United, which has been living for several years away from the great successes that it has achieved throughout its history. last_img read more
