Green light at 9: Dembélé will be six months off

first_imgIn the club they consider that the arguments that protect them are more than justified to request a replacement, since Although it is true that this type of injury and subsequent passage through the operating room to resolve it with surgery, they usually recover within a maximum of four months, the background in injuries and relapses of the French striker invite to be more cautious if possible, so making a six-month forecast is in no case an entelechy. However, The last word will be taken by the Federation Medical Committee. Ousmane Dembélé will be off the pitch for six months. This was highlighted by the statement issued by the club this afternoon after operating in Finland by the team of the prestigious surgeon Sakari Orava. The player was successfully intervened for a complete rupture of the proximal tendon of the biceps femoris of the right leg, according to the medical part.That obviously means saying goodbye to the season and also to the possibility of playing the European Championship with France, since at best it would be recovered in the face of the start of the pre-season of Barcelona next August. And it also opens the doors wide to find a substitute since it falls within the minimum margin of five months required by the Federation so that an alternative can be sought in full season and with the window of the winter market fully closed. Now it will be a Committee of five doctors of the Federation who will decide if the medical report that the club gives them about the player’s withdrawal is correct or not. If it falls within the established parameters, the Committee will give the OK and the Blaugrana club may sign a player to replace the long-range withdrawal of Dembélé.center_img By the way, the subsidiary player, the Japanese Hiroki Abe, was also operated this morning by the Sakari Orava team of a complete rupture of the proximal tendon of the biceps femoris of the right leg.

first_imgSonia Duro, consultant, digital marketing trainer and community manager of Nicestream, a subsidiary of I3 Ventures for two years, recognized in an interview at El Món to RAC 1 that “what surprises me most about this case is that one million euros is paid for a monitoring job, which is outrageous and out of the market. It is also surprising that the pages in question have many followers, we talk about 25,000 or something. And the followers are real. There are ways to increase followers “. Nicestream and I3Ventures are the companies hired by Barcelona in 2017 to monitor their Social Networks and that the SER Chain revealed that it created accounts to attack characters from the Barcelona environment including players of the current squad such as Messi or Piqué.

In my opinion it is unethical to use social networks to attack people, networks are not bad per se, you have to make good use. I was surprised by the news regarding the practices of the company, when I found out I asked what had happened and everyone was surprised. I cannot assure you that they have done it. Personally, I am against these practices, but it is a fact that this is done. I cannot assure you that it was done in my previous company, “he said.last_img read more

The enigma of Bale

first_imgA new survey of this newspaper at Bale’s most direct environment draws a complicated situation for Madrid. Has the welsh contract until 2022 and charges 14.5 million net per season, the one of the team with Ramos. And, today, “it does not occur to him other than to terminate his contract wearing the Madrid shirt”, They tell us flatly. At this point there is no team interested in getting their services. There wasn’t last summer, with the exception of Jiangsu Sunning, who only took care of his card but did not pay transfer. The operation was undone at the same time that Madrid asked for money for the sale. Now, seen his performance this season, it would have been advantageous to let him out for free … Roller coasterZidane dreamed of a trident Bale, Benzema, Hazard at the beginning of the season. That is why he opted for the Welshman from the beginning. That “if you leave today better than tomorrow” was not a malicious phrase, as the Frenchman was responsible for transmitting the player in a private meeting, but a demonstration from the certainty that he was leaving for the Chinese team. That Zidane crowded a Madrid with the BBH for the big occasions, the fact that it was his bet for the first big game of the season, against the PSG in the Park of the Princes. But he was too ambitious and placed James next to Casemiro and Kroos. He fell 3-0 with a crash. And yet, Zidane scored the same eleven in the next game, in a whole Sánchez Pizjuán (0-1 this time). The technician repeated trident before the Atlético en Liga (0-0), another big game. This time with Casemiro-Valverde-Kroos …. Hazard’s ankle injury truncated the idea of ​​BBH de Zidane, that came back to return with the return of the Belgian in the match against him Celtic (2-2). It seemed a general rehearsal of what was to come before City and in the Classic. But first the poor performance of Bale, and then Hazard’s injury, they definitely buried Zidane’s plan.Bale’s credit in Madrid is low. It only saves him that the board sees him as a amortized player. The numbers leave him very naked. He hasn’t scored in the League since September 1 (It’s already 188 days!). There are only three goals this campaign, in which he has only been able to dispute the 33% of possible minutes (so far, its average was 47%). He has only been able to finish five games of the 14 he has started … Everything for a player who is the best paid with Ramos. Now, Bale runs a serious risk of becoming transparent.center_img “I understand that they made me more Turkish head than the rest. It’s something I didn’t attend to much, but I think it wasn’t fair. I can’t say I’m happy to be playing“Already few remember how far Bale took the leg out of the pot at the beginning of the season, when I was having a relevant role in the team after a summer full of turbulence in which he had a foot and a half in the Chinese Super League. It was just a mirage. Bale has once again become the irrelevant Bale of recent seasons, which disappeared at a stroke after scoring a double in the Kiev final, his last great contribution to the cause.Forced by the manifest lack of goal of the team and being Bale one of the men more easily to score the squad, Zidane had an attempt at rehabilitation with the Welshman. It was before the two tRare matches against City and Barcelona so unlike luck for Real Madrid. With foot and a half outside the Champions (after 1-2 of the Bernabéu before the Guardiola) and with a predominant position to win the League (one point up after the 2-0 of the Classic with twelve days ahead and better calendar), now It remains to be seen what role Bale will play by the end of the season. It is an enigma that will begin to be solved this Sunday at Benito Villamarín. If you have minutes again your role in the template would be revived facing the visit to Ettihad Stadium next day 17. If not, run the Welsh risk of staying in a limbo from here to end your contract.last_img read more
