Braithwaite will wear the number ’19’, which Boateng already wore

first_imgMartin Braithwaite is already a Barcelona player, after paying the club the termination clause.

Well, in social networks the player himself has confirmed that will carry the ’19’ on his back.Curiously, it will be the same number that Kevin-Prince Boateng wore on his short tour of Barcelona. The now Besiktas player arrived to reinforce the Blaugrana forward, in similar conditions to those that have led Braithwaite to wear the Barcelona shirt. Nevertheless, he barely had opportunities and said goodbye to the club with more grief than glory. Boateng played a total of four games and Barcelona did not do well with him on the pitch. In the League, he started the victory by the minimum against the Valladolid, in the zero draw against the Huesca and in defeat against Celta Vigo. There was not a single game as revulsive and it was a usual discard of Ernesto Valverde. In Copa del Rey, he started in the defeat against Sevilla in the quarterfinals. Now, Braithwaite arrives with the intention of winning the position for the injuries of Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé and, for that challenge, he has chosen to wear the dorsal he has left free Carles Aleñá on his way out to Betis. At the moment, it seems that part with more options than he had in his day Boateng Y his scoring figures in the Leganés are remarkable. The Ghana international left without scoring a single goal …Bearers of the ’19’ of Barcelona-1996-98: Pizzi.-1998-99: Kluivert.-1999-2003: Dani García.-2004-05: Fernando Navarro.-2006-08: Messi.-2009-12: Maxwell.-2012-13: Martín Montoya.-2013-14: Afellay.-2015-16: Sandro Ramírez.-2016-18: Lucas Digne.-2018-19: Munir El Haddadi.-2018-19: Boateng.-2019-20: Aleñá.last_img read more

Koke recovered the ball almost in the front of the area, in another play of the high pressure that has returned to Atlético in the last two days and João Félix did not think about it to shoot with a light touch on the defender of Villarreal that complicated the auction for the palencia goal. Counting on the rest of competitions, Atlético had previously scored a goal. In the Spanish Super Cup with Correa as the protagonist, by defining in hand to hand before Neto before entering the Blaugrana area. But neither in the eight goals in Champions nor in Correa’s goal in the Cup had the equation been repeated. Comparing with the rest of LaLiga teams, just the Alavés, with a bit, has scored less from outside the area. The table is headed Barcelona (eight goals) and Real Madrid (six), although the team that most focuses its goals on shots from outside is Athletic with five of its 24 goals scored as well (21%). 14 goals from outside the area last seasonThe last course, with Griezmann as a great threat, Atlético was long-distance insurance.

But he had a lot of help. The gunman’s Thomas, with three goals in the competition, Koke and Correa with two and Lemar, Costa and Rodrigo with one. Atlético arrived at day 24 as the only First Division team that had failed to score from outside the area. One of the strengths of last season, where he was the best of the entire competition and that He had disappeared in this course where the low scoring figures had concentrated on the final meters.However, the rojiblanco team has begun to exploit that facet in recent days. Two goals in the last two games achieved with distant shots and that have returned to make Atlético a danger beyond the line of the area. The first of them, Thomas to place the momentary 1-2 for the rojiblanco team in Mestalla. The Ghanaian recovered the ball in the center of the field against Parejo (one of his 15 robberies of the encounter), drove the ball to the front of the area where he whipped a whip that hit the stick of Jaume Domenech. One of the great features of Thomas that was so hard to exploit this course. last_img read more

First, however, it will be necessary to understand how to play safely again. “The Italian refers to the economic coup that all entities will suffer, so it is already intuited that the next one will be a strange market, with difficulty executing large investments like those of the last summers in the elite. In addition, deadlines complicate everything, because club football becoming more and more likely in July. With the calendar it will be necessary to wait and on the financial side, the clubs are already moving. Atlético itself has announced an ERTE this Friday that will affect all employees of the entity … The stop forced by the coronavirus crisis It not only affects sports competition itself, but also what moves the most between one season and the next: the signings. The clubs do not know very well what to expect, because they do not yet know when they will play and when they will rest. About, Andrea Berta, Athletic director of Atlético, has granted an interview to Tuttosport where proposes that the summer transfer window be removed directly.last_img read more
