Nacho Galn: "We have a free card, but we are not going to reinforce ourselves"

Good times for the Gijón Circle after last Sunday's victory against Zornotza, the fifth of the season and that came after two consecutive defeats by Nacho Galán. Now that the season has just passed its equator, the Gijón coach makes a positive balance of what has been achieved so far. Things are going better than last year and, above all, the sensations are very different from those that the team showed in the final stretch of the season that ended with a sports descent. After the first 12 regular league games, the Circle has 5 wins and 7 losses. This partial serves to stay in the middle of the table.

On the last day, the people of Gijón not only won the victory against a direct rival, but also won the basket-average. The gijoneses needed to win 8 points and finally they did it by 18. The good start of the game, something that Nacho Galán had warned his own, was the trigger for a good victory.

Now that the critical phase of the season is approaching and that some teams lose their heads, the Gijón Circle prefers to keep their feet on the ground and not throw the house through the window. "We are very austere, very serious with our budget, we are not going to go crazy. We like that the figures fit us well," explains Nacho Galán, team coach.

The people of Gijón could make a signing without cutting any player. They have a free token and can occupy it, something they thought at the time. "At some point in the competition we weigh it, now is not the time. We discard it, we will end the season with this template," says Galán. And it is not easy to get warranty reinforcements once the season has begun. At this point the teams are already made and the templates consolidated, only the teams that are moving away from their goals think about strengthening. The Circle, for now, is on the right track. "For a player to come now he would have to be someone of the first level and that is not easy, nor cheap. We would only sign in case of injury, but we crossed our fingers so that it is not so," says the coach of the Circle.

If there is a player who is not having the expected performance that is Henrik Jädersten. The Swede did not score any points in the last match against Zornotza. His coach continues to trust him: "Yes, it is true that he is not doing good numbers, but that also speaks well of his work. The normal, the easy, the usual thing is that foreigners who come to these leagues do so thinking about doing baskets to ensure good numbers to find better contracts. Henrik gives us a lot in attack, but in defense he gives us a lot of consistency. Sunday was very important in his dirty work, he dried up Sakhniuk, the best player in Zornotza. "

The people of Gijón visit this Saturday, at 6:00 pm, the Marbella Basketball Club court. The Andalusian team has two consecutive defeats and is now second to last with only one victory less than the Circle. It will be a momentous match for the future of both teams. In the first round match, the Gijones won 80-75.

Spanish team: Spanish football deserves something else | sports

Robert Moreno and Luis Enrique. In video, an excerpt from the press conference of Luis Rubiales. Video: EPV



Not even the much desired comeback of Luis Enrique deserved so much turbulence, nor his satisfactory substitute Robert Moreno should never leave with tears through a dark passage of the Metropolitan. Beyond the reasons of each party, it was the Federation that was responsible for avoiding such a sainete. But Luis Rubiales, arrived at the offices of Las Rozas from the football union, has not been characterized by his diplomacy. Theirs is a permanent combustion framework. Accustomed to frentismo, in 18 months of Rubiales mandate all the hornets have been agitated: Lopetegui, Thebes, Adidas, futsal, the women's league, Mediapro, Miami, Saudi Arabia … A penultimate fray was missing, this time with an enthusiastic coach who arrived, in a way he never wanted, the opportunity to oppose the elite after years of fellow with his "friend" Luis Enrique.

Although an alleged tantrum of Moreno is used, Rubiales, much more skilled in extreme circumstances, has lacked tact to manage the crisis. No tino and temperance to calm your technician. Even if he was already aware of the alleged sudden incompatibility between Moreno and Luis Enrique. The reappearance – so humanly celebrated – of the Gijon is not discussed. And much less the power of a president to choose the coach on duty. But everything requires a few steps, maximum transparency, knowing the board by heart, being receptive to the sensibilities of others and operating with the fixed idea of ​​safeguarding the institution that is represented above personal crusades. Only in this way would the happy resurgence of Luis Enrique and the blissful flight of his ex-disciple be celebrated today.

Rubiales said Tuesday that it was Moreno who broke the rope by "demanding" that his situation be clarified. As much as it could be argued that with his poor graduation he was not in a position to require anything, it is understandable that the Catalan technician wanted to know his future immediately. Especially when the echo of Luis Enrique was already deafening. So offside, Moreno must have felt that he even said on Sunday that he looked yes or yes in the 2020 Euro Cup. According to Molina, sports director of the federation, he had already anticipated the facts before he showed himself in press conference convinced of its presence in the European. Moreover, Moreno came to extol his confidence in Rubiales and Molina. Therefore, it is not very credible that hours before he had been exposed to such a crude situation that he ended up unleashing his distress and final restlessness. Moreno was so dejected that on Monday morning he left in writing his desire to clarify his role so as not to interfere with Luis Enrique's return. Message that Rubiales read in his appearance over and over again. It was the perfect alibi to unload on Moreno and accelerate the return of the Asturian coach, his true and legitimate commitment. And not only because of his promise that the Barça coach would return to Las Rozas as soon as he was available.

From the split flops in Norway and Sweden in mid-October – days before the Rubiales-Molina-Luis Enrique appointment in Zaragoza – there were murmurs about Moreno in the federation. After a slight soccer downturn in his two clashes, there were already those who wanted to see him as an apprentice too permissive with the demands of the internationals. On the ground, Rubiales found the best possible response from Luis Enrique at the time of greatest doubt about Moreno.

Open the option of replacing the Spaniard, Rubiales did not hesitate to specify the return. In his explanation on Tuesday he got tangled up about it. On the one hand, the return of Luis Enrique was a word given since his unfortunate departure. However, Moreno was only transferred some time later that it was “an option to value”. Literally: "The possible possibility of assessing if Luis Enrique returned". Value what, an automatic return was not agreed? Asked about it, Rubiales rambled as much as before the confused and contradictory Molina, stammering when he was reminded that on Sunday he confirmed Moreno in the European Championship before a group of journalists. Fact that also corroborated in private. If Rubiales sought to accentuate the “transparency” that he proclaimed so much, Molina did not support him, prone to shortcuts that are not understandable no matter how much the position forces him to some confidentiality.

For now, waiting for the verb of Luis Enrique and Robert Moreno, the last disturbance with the federation in between reveals the new procedure in Las Rozas, where a president lives in a ring that does not shy away from anyone. A president so willing to hand-to-hand combat that if today he has to act as a firefighter-arsonist in this crisis, it is due to his sudden appearance last Friday in the mixed area of ​​Carranza. Rubiales was looking for a speaker for a chest blow in his eternal war with Javier Thebes. He had just won a judicial pulse for the frustrated game in Miami. And at a delicate moment, because he, Rubiales, was losing by a win against public opinion with his Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. He was able to celebrate the victory against the president of LaLiga, but, unexpectedly, the Moreno case broke out. When asked about his renewal – he concluded a contract after the European Championship – the manager cleared the ball. An unequivocal signal that Moreno was not a Praetorian. The matter entered into such a drift that the federation ran out of bridles and dragged Luis Enrique and Moreno himself. Rubiales, nothing conciliatory – he left the mess to Molina – found an escape route in a private message from Catalan. And he, indeed, took a side step with a slam and left the day after his lawyers. Rubiales, with Moreno's momentary silence, had the expeditious path to expose his story without a reply from others involved. "It has not been resolved smoothly, but coherently," he concluded to himself. He forgot that Luis Enrique deserved something else. The same as Moreno – who nothing behind him with another club – and the federation itself. Better would go to Spanish football with more "softness" and less trenches.
