Five pieces of Madrid’s collateral damage from the Clasico

first_imgReal Madrid are suffering their first big crisis of the season with the 4-0 pounding they received in the Clasico against Barcelona at home. A big sporting and institutional fracture. 23/11/2015 Upd. at 17:07 CET Sergio Ramos fought through the Clasico injured and now will be out for at least a month, not playing again in 2015 while he tries to fix his shoulder. With Madrid at a delicate moment, they are losing their captain.

The Spaniard, adored by fans, has no place in the Galactico eleven and was a substitute. He has only played four complete games and is considering leaving at the end of the season.  Sergio Vera Isco said “enough” Cristiano’s wounded pride Rafa Benitez, without credit Los Blancos fans ran out of patience with the chief for leading a project without identity. Perez axed Ancelotti and brought in Benitez but the coach has never convinced the fans or players. They chanted for Perez to resign. The line up picked by Rafa ended up suffering a rout against their eternal rival and it seemed like a line p picked from above, with the coach preferring Casemiro himself, but ending up picking James Rodriguez. The coach has lost the confidence of the board and the wound is open after the Clasico defeat.

Arsenal take on Barcelona with strong Blaugrana links

first_imgBarcelona’s Champions League rival, Arsenal, have three players with connections to the Catalan club: Alexis Sanchez, Mikel Arteta and Hector Bellerin. The Blaugrana paid 37 million euros for him. He made his debut in August 2011 under Pep Guardiola, playing in the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid. The game ended 2-2 and he created a goal for Lionel Messi.  ALEXIS SANCHEZ  The youngster came through the ranks at Barcelona, but in 2011 he decided it was difficult to progress at the Catalan club and left for London, joining Arsenal.  He signed from Udinese in the summer of 2011, despite having offers from Manchester United and Manchester City. However, he only wanted to play for Barcelona, which made his decision easy.  Born in San Sebatian in 1982, he began his career at Antiguoko before joining Barcelona in 1997.  With Thomas Vermaelen’s departure to Barça, he was named first team captain at the Emirates last summer. He’s now 33.  Upd. at 16:09 The right-back stands out for his physical qualities, with his pace and technique allowing him to contribute at both ends of the pitch.  During his time at the club he played under three managers: Guardiola, Tito Vilanova and Gerardo Martino. In total, he played 141 games and scored 42 goals, creating 32 more.  The player most recently linked to Barça was the Chilean Alexis Sanchez, who spent three seasons at the club between 2011 and 2014.  MIKEL ARTETA  He then left for Rangers, where he demonstrated his talent and became a player highly regarded for his style of play. In two seasons in Scotland he won three trophies, playing 68 games and scoring 14 goals.  In the summer of 2014 he was sold to Arsenal for 42 million euros, making him the second most expensive player to leave the club ever, after Luis Figo (60 million euros).  He played three friendlies for the first team between 1999 and 2001 (scoring one goal), but his position was occupied by players like Pep Guardiola and Xavi, so he went on loan to PSG in 2000-01.  Sport EN CET 14/12/2015 HECTOR BELLERIN  Bellerin’s debut was against West Brom, coming on as a substitute for Artera in September 2013. However, in November of the same year he was sent to Watford on loan until the end of the same season.  He signed his first professional contract in 2013 and has become a regular this season.  He has already been part of an Arsenal side which has won the FA Cup and the Community Shield and is tipped to have a big future in the game. After that, he moved to Real Sociedad and then to Everton (where he spent six seasons) before Arsenal signed him in 2011. last_img read more
