“Setién preaches, Bordalás does not, does what comes out of the ‘papo”

first_img“Bordalás should open the news” Withdrawal: “I had some chance to train before arriving at Deportivo. I wanted to retire actively, to be able to say goodbye to football.”Difficulty for older coaches: “I thought that with the years I have … In the Compostela, when I started, they called me” Profe “, like this in quotes, as a theoretician who lacked practice or experience. I had been training in Second B for years, now I was not a stranger. Now that I have that experience it turns out that what it takes is to deliver the equipment to very young trainers. They have no experience, but I suppose they have knowledge. I already valued knowledge more than experience. Now it seems that it is so, the opposite of before, and I seem to be going backwards. Now they ask me for youth. But it happens in football, in education, in professional life … How many unemployed 50 or 55 are there that nobody wants to hire. There is a prejudice about age, microviejismos, like micromachismos. If you are older, what? That is just an idea. You can be perfectly. “ Fernando Vázquez Fernando Vázquez, about Celta-Depor Case of Zozulia and Case Marega: “What cannot be is what happened in Vallecas. That is, What is a nazi? After all, it’s almost a political opinion, do not? With a more serious background, but it is still a bit. That is to say, that for a hobby that gives its opinion, it sings something observable, manageable, that even the kid himself… well, he didn’t write it, but… They suspend the match. Then, racist and xenophobic insults and nothing happens. We do something wrong“.Solution to the problem: “First, the Federation or the Professional Football League has to take things seriously. But seriously, seriously. And from there: coaches, players, clubs, presidents … but we meander because the subject is delicate. I don’t know, it seems to me that it is clear. It is in the Constitution. I don’t see many people protesting because these things happen that are unconstitutional. Discrimination by, by and by. Lighter water. I don’t know, it’s sad and I feel very sorry for the kid who had to suffer. ‘Stay, stay, stay’, instead of saying: ‘We are with you, that they give him in the ass and we go ‘. You lose a match, but let a club do it one day. Do you lose a match? The Porto? It goes second, right? Well, to see what would happen, to see who risks taking the first step. “The day he could sign for Manchester United: “Through Ferguson’s son, he addressed me to see if he was willing to leave. I went to talk to the president of Valladolid, Carlos Suarez, and he said no. Surely he would be misrepresented, or he was dumb. I thought I had a contract and I stayed. If I look back it is a big mistake in my career as it was to have stayed in Vigo. When you are a coach, more important than what you get at the sports level, is to direct your career correctly. That sometimes, when you are young, you do not give importance, I think it is key. Knowing how to stop you, for example. Know when to wait. I think my sports career was very poorly directed. “Fernando Vázquez and his possible destinations: “I never had too much interest in going outside. Training in England for example, which is where I would have liked to go … But I am Fernando Vázquez. I was not a UEFA champion, I was not an international player. It is very difficult. Even to go to China is very complicated. ‘Who is this Fernando Vázquez? Who did you train? If I had trained Real Madrid, or Atlético de Madrid, yes’. There is some palletism in China. If you are an international player but without a resume, they take you. But I carry my resume and they start thinking, ‘Who is this?’ What matters is glamor. Why is Gregorio Manzano training in China? Because he was at Atlético de Madrid. For another normal coach it is very difficult, and now even more. “ More people with a critical situation than with a good year: “Yes, that is a psychological effect that works. You are lost … I saw Oviedo with the field almost full in Third, and now in Second A they have half the fans. When you want to go up, everyone is going to support, but when you have expectations of ascent and do not meet them and you are in no man’s land, as happens to them … The public doubts, if they go down, the field may fill again. of this. If we were ninth, with the ascent away, there would possibly not be this effervescence of hobby. It is possible that we were not 28,000, but 20,000, as there were no aspirations of ascent or danger of going down. That is why people get carried away. “ “In Vallecas they suspend the game. Then, racist and xenophobic insults and nothing happens” Fernando Vázquez Fernando Vázquez Couldn’t we have the best derby in Spain? “United turned to me to see if he was willing to leave” Celtic-Depor comparison: “Celticism and sportsmanship are two very important social movements. I don’t understand the bad rivalry, the match. For Deportivo it is very important that Celta be in First when he is in First, and vice versa. What is difficult to understand is that the Galician derby is decaffeinated because a Corunna family does not want to go to Vigo and a Vigo does not want to come to A Coruña. But this was politicized. And there I leave it. Couldn’t we have the best derby in Spain? There are always problems. When you can defend your team and, at the same time, appreciate the opponent. No. Here, you want yours and the other you despise. “His vocation as a teacher: “In my beginnings I did not think about being professional. I was training here in Galicia and I worked in an institute and I knew that I would never leave teaching even if a Second B team came from outside Galicia, because I was not going to leave. according to working in the morning in the institute and training in the afternoon. When I leave Lalín and go to Racing I started to think that maybe I could go up there with him to Second Division. It was when I started thinking about it, although then I went to Lugo and I thought about teaching again. “Bad moments in Celta: “I suffered professionally and personally. When I say that the bicycle is my psychologist, it is because it is so. I did not want to see or hear the games on the weekend. I used to ride a bike when there were games. I suffered a crisis, say … An emotional shock. Because I was paralyzed by energy. The desire to train, to watch football … But I went out. “Possession football: “The matches are 90 minutes. And I tell them, midfield retreat. We have 40% average possession in all matches. 60-40% is not that different. Cádiz had 30% and took 12 points to the second, and nobody discusses Cádiz, the other day the team progressed at the ball level, but you will have opportunities, 90 minutes go a long way, I don’t think we will do … When I started training, this was normal. In the year 95, the clubs were waiting for you and you had to wait, everyone was doing the same, a fucking wall in front, not today, because football changed, and that started … Everyone has to play in the opposite field, travel fast, where is it written that you have to play football like this? There are many teams that play like that. The best example is Atlético de Madrid. He won because he played the opposite of everyone. And maybe the same thing happened to us. I don’t have to decide the strategies of others, but that’s a true story. Rich Simeone seems to be doing worse when … There is that runrun that “what a shit, we don’t play anything” … Well, they can hurt themselves. Simeone starts to doubt. They record better players … But in the year 95 it was never criticized how bad that team played. Before there was no play right or wrong. The press did not use it. “ Fernando Vázquez has granted an interview in La Voz de Galicia, leaving a dozen headlines. The coach of Deportivo has completely changed the situation of the club, which even dreams of getting into the Playoffs. He, on the contrary, remains cautious about what is to come. He also spoke of his words about the parental pin in Andalusia, about racist insults to Marega or about the moment of form of Getafe from Bordalás. Bordalás and Setién: “Absolutely, because it seems to me a coach like the cup of a pine. The other day, playing against Barcelona, ​​with combinatorial game, playing in the opposite field … He also preaches it. Bordalás does not preach anything. Play as it comes out of the papo … But the one who was in the opposite field except fifteen or twenty minutes was the Getafe. So, that team that they say kicks, defends I don’t know what … It’s an absurd contempt. But if you won the game clearly. He has no problem saying he is defensive, but goes to Camp Nou and tells him that with that style he goes and is in his field. He lost the game because he has no Messi and some more. Bordalás does not train to like. He does not train for I know that I am, my team is that I do not know what .. He trains within strategic possibilities, valuing his strength, that of others. He is a real coach. Last year near Champions and this in Champions. I would have to be the coach who is at the head of all the news. In addition, Bordalás is a good colleague. Good colleague is one who does not have to talk about the rival team to justify himself. Bordalás never does. Look at the ones that are justified talking about the rival. It used to happen a lot. Not so much now, but it’s still happening. “Marega: “I understand that the big clubs are not going to solve this. It will only be resolved when players decide to leave and miss matches. I think a little miserable the performance of Marega’s teammates, coach and referee. Grabbing the kid, I think they also got a yellow card, so he stayed. I think they should have had the opposite reaction. But this has to be fixed by who has to fix it. “ Have you regretted your words about the parental pin?: “Never. Sometimes a journalist asks you and … I didn’t want to get into that controversy. I released that and had to explain why. I talked about the teaching staff. I have my opinion on that and why I will not give it. I have every right to give my opinion about what I want. Everyone thinks about football and it seems that I have to be a coach only and, as if it were subnormal, abnormal or paranormal, I could not give my opinion. I understand why, I don’t have to create foolish enemies. But I say: Why do I think fools foolishly thinking? Don’t you think it’s from a society a little sick? I don’t know, I think my way, but I never regretted it. It went too far, then I repeated it in a few days, I thought we were among coaches and there is a journalist who puts it in networks. But I didn’t talk about the parental pin anymore, I made a joke to make them laugh a little and they laughed. But social networks are tremendous, it seems that I insisted on the subject.last_img read more
