Melero: “Zidane is ideal for a team like Real Madrid”

first_imgAnd now Real Madrid arrives, almost without margin to catch pace, but always special game for you. Do you think you have options to be a holder?Yes, I have not played for two games. But well, in the end we all know that when you have not played for a long time and play, they will demand the same from you even if you have had ten games in a row. So I train hard to be 100% and, well, it is a special match, with an extra motivation if possible and hopefully here at home we put the difficult things and we can beat them.In the first leg, in his debut at the Bernabéu, he could not debut with a better foot.I remember knowing that I was not going to be a starter and talking with my classmates, with my family, with everyone … I said that just being able to debut was a dream for me. And, well, it was the dreamed debut on an individual level despite the result, but I still have a very good memory of my minutes there.How was the goal moment?I had not located mine in the goal. Yes, there were many people, but they were scattered. Each one got the tickets a little as he could and it was all very fast. It was 3-2, we had to try to get something out of there and I just remember the center of José (Campaña), my arrival at the second post and running back to our field almost without celebrating to try to tie and get something positive.The goal comes in one of its specialties, the air game.In my beginnings I was not a player who stood out for these actions, many times I stayed even outside the auction zone. But I think it is one of my virtues that I have evolved over time. In recent years I have paid a lot of attention and thank God in my years in Huesca I scored many goals for the ball, almost of which more than the category. And this year my goal has come like this. I think it’s a pretty good virtue that I have. I don’t think it’s one of the best heads up, but it’s true that I play a lot of balls. I put a lot of momentum and a lot of attitude to those plays and always try to make myself noticed in every action. “Valverde is becoming one of the best media in the world” After one of each in the Real Madrid quarry, where he entered at age 10 and left with 20, Gonzalo Melero had to to pack convinced that it was the best way to give the jump to professional football when I was in the Castilla de Zinedine Zidane. “I left Madrid because in the winter market I had six months playing very little in Castilla Yes, it is true that I spoke with Zidane and he told me that he wanted me to be on staff, he wanted to have me there. But at that age I understood what I had to play and in the end he called me Manolo Díaz, which was my coach the previous season in C, so that Go to the Ponferradina. I wanted to make the leap to professional football, I knew that sooner or later I would leave Madrid and I took it as a step forward, “explained the midfielder to this newspaper after signing. He was not wrong. Madridista confessed, in the first round it premiered with a goal in his debut at the Santiago Bernabéu. Now, analyze for tomorrow the crash tomorrow City of Valencia.How is it going?Well, well, recovered after all the problems of the two injuries and getting 100% and wanting to help the team.How are you physically? (It was the discard in front of Villarreal)Fully recovered. I do not notice anything training and see that in previous interviews I asked for health in 2020 and at the first change a setback has arisen. But I hope it’s the last one and I’m looking forward to not leaving the group for the rest of the year.It seems that in the last two years the injuries have not allowed him to develop his full potential.Well yes and I always think I had stood out for that. Because in the previous seasons, in Huesca or Ponferradina, he had always been available and had no setbacks. And it is true that these last two years, with the pubic lesion of last year, which were many comings and goings, and with the two muscle injuries because it seems that I have been a season where I am accusing them a lot. I live with some anger because he had always been a player who had no problem and is a situation that nobody likes, it is clear.On a physical level it is heavy machinery, a big player, is it harder for him to catch up with this circumstance?Yes, of course. I am the first to know it and it costs me a bit especially after being stopped for a while. Find the typical sparkle that players often refer to to be comfortable. Many times it costs me a little and I need two or three games to give 100%. And with whom do you feel better as a couple in the core?I have always felt comfortable when I played in that position. Yes, it is true that in the run of matches where I have better performed I was playing with Radoja and we were both at a good level and that is why it seems that the team was doing well. I think the whole team played good games and was a consequence of the state of form, but neither would highlight anyone in particular. In the end we are all partners, a few days it touches you with one, others with another and now I think that Nikola (Vukcevic) is doing very well and I think that after being so long a little in the shade I am glad for him because I can enjoy and Do it at a good level, which is what you have.Do you think that the reaction of Madrid has been set in the center of the field?Yes, it is true that after a while where it seemed that Kroos and Modric were not at the level we were accustomed to, they have hit that little jump, that return to their level let’s say. And, above all, the irruption of Valverde, which has been expected by many and unexpected for others. But it is clear that today it is becoming one of the best mid-centers in the world. That together with Casemiro, which I think is at its best level. He dares to do things he did not do before, it seems to me that he is at a spectacular level. Following there and especially the defense. Because they have begun to fit much less goals and for a team like Madrid that is fundamental because the quality above they have it. So I think that the union of a center of the field at a very good level together with the fact of receiving fewer goals I think has driven them to be leaders and be in a very good time.That I was going to ask her, what an irruption of Valverde.Yes, yes, spectacular. When I have seen games at that level, come on, in love. And that I take a few years. That force, that power … I think it is within reach of very few and I think it has an incredible future ahead.And do you see Borja Mayoral prepared to get to Madrid one day?I hope I can come back. Personally, I think next year is a bit early. He still has to tan. I always talk to him personally that he has to score goals. In the end for the strikers not everything is the goal, but it is very important. I think he is very similar soccer to what Benzema can be, but he is big words. So hopefully. He is very young, he has plenty of time to grow and hopefully in two or three years he can be there. I think a striker of a very good level and is sure to be in large teams. I hope it is in Madrid because it would be a joy for everyone.Now that you have been here for a while, what is your balance of your first months in the Levant?I already said it at the beginning and I keep it. I was very surprised because I think that I gave a level jump for the quality of my teammates. I think that the level that I live every day is higher than what I have seen on weekends in competition and that makes me especially angry because I am one of those who thinks that the team could be a little higher. But I am very happy to be able to take that leap, to continue improving and to be surrounded by better people. I am grateful and very happy to have a contract here for more years and want to keep improving and keep doing it here.How does this sports bump manage such an ambitious player? (Only one victory in 2020)I think the team is living it calmly. In the end we have a good margin regarding the decline, which is the primary objective. And then on the other hand with that anger because in the end you see that you are a little in no man’s land. Obviously many points remain and anything can happen. But it makes me especially angry to go through bad times because the top teams don’t pass them. Now we are in a still exciting situation and if we focus on Saturday’s game and win it we can see things differently. It seems that when you win a game you already aspire to everything and suddenly you lose another and you are already looking down. It is necessary to look for that tranquility that in soccer is often very difficult. But internally we are calm. We have our feet on the ground and we are aware that in football you win and lose and above all you have to be regular to achieve the goals. What part of merit do you grant when you return from Zidane?In the end I have never been in the Madrid dressing room, but I have always thought that there are people with a lot of personality, with many egos and I think there must be someone 100% respected. And Zidane obviously is. I think he has earned it for his football career and for his life as a coach. Honestly, I think he is the best coach for a team like Madrid and hopefully they keep winning as they are doing. I am one more follower even though I now defend other colors.Speaking of Zidane, how about Paco López? Trust your figure a lot.Well, very grateful. In the end I have always said that I am here because he called me and conveyed his confidence. And, well, at first I played less, I went through moments of playing more, of not playing any minute, but at all times I felt confident. I am very grateful and eager to return that confidence on the pitch. Surely we will be together for a long time and I will continue working on my individual improvement and on being a better footballer.It seems that when it is available, it makes use of you.I think I could tell you that it surprised me a bit even to me. After so much time stopped and knowing that many times I find it difficult to take that state of form; although it is true that playing is how best you catch. But thankful, I can’t tell you anything else. I have also told you that when I have played less I have also been there. In the end I think we all like to play but we have to add all the places. The coach knows that I play more, play less or if I am not summoned I will always be there for the team and I think it is also one of my virtues.With Rochina and Radoja injured, the ownership doors open wide.Unfortunately because Rochi He was in great shape and is a very important player for us. But you have to be prepared. I don’t know if I will have options to play. If so, I will try to make the most of the service of the team and if not be available because there may be a thousand contingencies, changes in the second part and you have to be prepared to play the minutes required by the master. Throughout the year he has played in different positions (in band, more advanced, in the double pivot and even single pivot). Which one do you feel most comfortable in?I think in the double pivot. In the end, playing 4-4-2 is free to go up and then also requires you to work close to the defense. I like to help a little in all facets. I think that when I am very advanced, internally it makes me angry to not be able to help below, as happened in Seville in the League. Where I find myself most comfortable is there, helping in all facets and always being a little present in all the sets of the game. Without being the tallest or the one who jumps the most. Don or work?I think a lot is in the attitude and how to face the plays. I had never had that virtue, but it is true that with the coaches or my father, who talked to him a lot about these things, they told me that it was more a matter of attitude, of the way to go to the plays, how to take the duel. And now I like to play those plays, I like to be there and when I don’t win any action I get quite angry. I like this aerial presence defending, attacking … in all the sets of the game and try to win.Do you see Madrid ready to take LaLiga?I see them well, better than the last few years that Barça had been very strong. Yes it is true that I think this year the big ones are leaving points against smaller rivals and the important thing is to be there until the end. I think that when Madrid has some advantage, it tends to relax a bit and it shouldn’t be that way. Because all points add up and you miss them at the end. But hopefully three points are left on Saturday and from there they are able to win LaLiga. “In LaLiga, when Madrid has some advantage, it tends to relax” If the day of Espanyol was a turning point in the squad, in El Sadar there was a team that wanted to show another attitude despite the final result.I think that at the level of competition in LaLiga, many times the team has not put the 100% intensity it requires and I think that when you don’t match that it is very difficult to win. Even so, we have been able to win many games as well and internally we think that if we are able to match the intensity that other teams put we will be superior to many. Because I think that in terms of quality and technically we are a very good team in LaLiga. I think that that day (in El Sadar) the team played a very serious game that went away in the end for details. But I think it is the way to go despite the result. Many times we try to inhibit the result and focus a little more on what happens in the 90 minutes than on specific situations such as goals. I think that the attitude we show that day is the way to go and from there take out our quality. That day we could not do it because it is also a difficult field and they put a lot of intensity, but I am sure that sooner or later it will come out.Where does the growth of the Levant go? Because once assumed the goal of permanence it seems that the next is Europe.I think that is the case, settling on the table. Grow based on the primary goal that is salvation. Grow as a team and if there is any option, dream. I think that Levante has only gotten into European competitions once and marking that goal would be too ambitious. We would make history again. We have our feet on the ground and I believe that the truth is that the team has to grow based on settling on the table, achieving salvation with a certain margin and especially in each match to meet and raise the level. And once you’ve settled on the table, see what your options are, how many games are left, rub shoulders with the ones at the top that is very beautiful and that would be the path we should follow.What do you expect from tomorrow’s game?I wait a bit for the atmosphere that was experienced on Barça day. Especially since it would mean practically a victory if people are so happy. But in the end it is a very complicated game. They are very well defensively, they have many offensive weapons and we have to make a practically perfect match. I think we have a lot of offensive weapons and you have to squeeze them, because in the end you can’t raise a game to keep the goal to zero against a team like Madrid. I think we have to be offensive, ambitious, attack, try to score goals and especially defensively be very strong. They cannot be left spaces.And personally how do you live this week?Friends, family come … and in the end I think it’s a week a little special for me. I’ve been there all my life, my parents and my friends keep going to the Bernabéu. But I look forward to it with great ambition, eager to arrive, to face the team where I’ve been so long and hopefully everything goes well and we are able to win all three points. That although there are three points that Madrid does not win, I wish it with all my desire.last_img read more

‘We Knew Duncan Would Die’

first_imgNews of the death of Ebola victim in the United States, Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, did not surprise a cross section of Liberians interviewed by the Daily Observer yesterday.“I knew he was not going to make it,” said a money changer on Benson Street, minutes after Texas Presbyterian Health officials announced his death.“Consider his situation,” the man who chose not to give his name, said. “There are at least four Americans who also got the virus, and why are they not dead?” he asked.A young Liberian female university student, 20, said, “The wicked manner that Duncan went to America, aware that he had come in contact with an Ebola patient convinced me that he would not survive his ordeal.” “Oh, did you people at the Observer ever think he was going to survive?” She answered her own rhetorical question. “I knew he would not have made it.”Others interviewed drew attention to Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor who got infested here in Liberia with Ebola, but was treated in a US hospital and is now free from the disease.“He is an American,” the taxi driver said, “and so they took care of him.”A mother of three on Carey Street in Monrovia also reminded the Daily Observer  of Dr. Rick Sarca, another American, who got infested while in Liberia.“Is he dead?” she posed the question to the Daily Observer.Like the two American doctors, another American, Nurse Nancy Writebol, also survived after being treated at a US hospital.Many other Liberians made mention of NBC Cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, who recently got infested and was rushed to the United States.Cameraman Mukpo has received blood donation from Dr. Kent Brantly and doctors in the United States are waiting to administer transfusion to save his life.“Why Duncan did not receive such an important gift that could have saved his life?” asked another Liberian, who said he is a student at the University of Liberia.When many of those interviewed were reminded that the Americans had begun administering a drug approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, FDA, on Ebola victim Duncan, they still responded that the Americans “pretended they were doing their best for him.”“They knew that the drug would not have saved Duncan’s life,” said another.  “Why are they not using the same drug on other Americans?”Many commented that the United States is a country that takes care of its own and took the Liberian government to task for its inability to care for its citizens just as Americans do for their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Candidates sprint to finish line

Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES — With millions of Californians still undecided about whether to vote for Controller Steve Westly or Treasurer Phil Angelides to take on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in November, the Democratic candidates planned to campaign furiously Tuesday as the polls opened. Angelides planned two Election-Day stops in San Francisco to shake hands with morning commuters before sprinting to Sacramento to cast his vote. Westly planned to vote early and then circle the San Francisco Bay Area, stopping at stores, and a senior center before flying to Los Angeles. Whether the last minute pushes would make any difference was unclear. Turnout Tuesday was expected to be light, and many voters said they still had trouble distinguishing the candidates despite $70 million spent on campaigning. Polls showed Westly and Angelides in a statistical dead heat leading up to Election Day. The two were so close that officials warned a problem with voting machines in one heavily Democratic San Francisco Bay area county might prevent them from naming a winner until Wednesday. Another close race in the state was shaping up to be a bellwether for Republicans nationwide. Ongoing investigations and political scandals have turned the San Diego area race to replace disgraced Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham into a mini-referendum on the Republican Party and approaches to illegal immigration. Polls showed Republican Brian Bilbray and Democrat Francine Busby were running neck-and-neck in the historically right-leaning 50th Congressional District. The two sides have spent a combined $10.5 million campaigning, seeking to serve out the remaining seven months of Cunningham’s term and get a boost for the November election. Cunningham resigned from Congress and was sentenced to more than eight years in prison for taking bribes. Bilbray has attacked Busby, depicting her as an advocate for amnesty for illegal immigrants. The Republican has faced problems of his own trying to shake Democratic ads linking him to corruption. He has also wrestled with a Republican base that has fractured over how to address illegal immigration. Adding intrigue to Tuesday’s vote was the fate of Proposition 82, the measure backed by Hollywood director Rob Reiner that would tax the rich to pay for universal preschool. Until late last week the measure held a slight advantage. On Saturday, however, polls showed voters may be turning away from the idea. Voters must also decide on a handful of familiar names running to keep their political careers alive. One of the most well-known candidates campaigning to return to the state capital was Oakland mayor and former governor Jerry Brown. Brown was running for the attorney general against Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo.last_img read more

LIFFORD AC TRACK MOVES CLOSER TO OLYMPIC STANDARD DREAM

first_imgThe Lifford track is certainly taking shapeLifford Athletic Club’s Olympic standard track took a big step closer to completion this week with the arrival of Mondo’s track lining team.With the main track laid during 2012, the high jump area was newly laid during the week with the line marking team arriving Thursday.Lifford AC’s Brendan O’Donnell spoke of his delight at the latest developments. “The development of the new track has been a nine year project at this stage, but this week sees a huge step forward towards its final completion. Irish international athlete David McCarthy pictured with Lifford AC club members at the clubs new Olympic standard track last week.“The old saying goes that the best things come to those who wait and while there have been may ups and downs, the end product is nearly in sight. An Olympic standard track with full IAAF accreditation is a brilliant new addition not just to Lifford but to the whole of the North West”.With this exact same surface being showcased at the 2012 London Olympics where fast times were the order of the day, the development of such a facility in Donegal will help to showcase athletics in the North West.The sheltered setting of the Lifford grounds, coupled with an Olympic standard surface will ensure fast times are recorded when the track opens up fully in a few months time. At the recent Donegal Track and Field Championships held at the venue, Letterkenny AC’s Ruairi Finnegan achieved a European Junior standard in the 1500m. Just last week, West Waterford AC’s David McCarthy was in town to get some training in on the new Mondo track in preparation for this weekends European Team Championships.The Irish international will go in the 3000m at Santry this weekend, and was very impressed with the quality of the new track and affirmed his commitment to be back in the near future. Weather permitting, the track lining is expected to be completed next week.LIFFORD AC TRACK MOVES CLOSER TO OLYMPIC STANDARD DREAM was last modified: June 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LIfford ACtracklast_img read more
