Oscar García: “The Oscar player would not be a starter in this Celta”

first_imgHe had a difficult farewell of 2019 due to a personal problem, how has the new year started in the mood?I am very strong and happy to have accepted the Celtic challenge. It is not easy to reach a project that I have not started mid-season, but I am looking forward to it.During Christmas, did you consider leaving Vigo to focus on that personal problem?No, I am very committed. The Celta had been interested in me for a long time and I decided that it was the moment, although the team has been in a negative dynamic for quite some time, not only this season.Is saving the Celtic the most complicated challenge you have had as a coach?I don’t know if the most complicated, but it is different. I’ve been in teams that signed me to get titles. This situation is new, a challenge. I had the courage to come to this team in the conditions I was to do my job the best I know. I consider myself a brave person and I want my teams to be too. If there was an infallible formula, everyone would apply it. In a balance of these methods is the way forward. Cruyff also had a lot of hard hand, he was not an easy coach for the player.Would the Oscar player start in the current Celtic?I think not because there are many players in his profile. The midpoint and forward position are well covered.There are other positions where you don’t have so much to choose from. Have you asked for a booster per line?They are internal club things. Logically, a coach, and more if the project has not started, always wants to make adjustments.Is a soccer player missing in the squad that has ‘Argentine character’ to pull the car?There are good memories of Argentines who have been leaders here: Cabral, Augusto … Nor can it be generalized, I have had fellow Argentines who were not so leaders, but it is a country with very competitive players. There are also of other nationalities. I am trying to lead from the outside, but in the games it is more complicated for the coach to lead.Very involved does not give the feeling of being Lobotka. How do you see your future?He is still a Celtic player and I treat him that way. I was talking to him and if a player is not 100% involved in the situation we are in, he cannot help us. Apart from that, he is a top player, one of the best we have.Before the market opened you ‘signed’ Pione Sisto. Why did you bet on an evicted player?I followed him in Denmark. I told him that I had seen him in a tie against Manchester United, that he had been the best and that he wanted to recover it.When I was out of a team, how many games did I watch on TV in a weekend?All those who gave and recorded others that I could not see. I spent the week watching football. It’s my passion. Have you encountered more difficulties than you expected?Yes, logically. He knew where he came from, what kind of player he was going to have and that the team had that negative dynamic. But I can’t fool myself. I thought it would be much faster to get off the descent. We are building a team.You were trained by football technicians as different as Cruyff, Mourinho being Robson’s assistant or Van Gaal. Of those methods, which is the most recommended for a team that is in the pit like Celta?last_img read more

Nacho never fails

first_imgHowever, little by little he was entering the Madrid rotation: this season debuted as left back against Osasuna due to the injuries of Marcelo (he took a strong blow to the shoulder during the match against Levante in September) and Mendy (confirmed within 33 hours of the match against the reddish team, and that would keep him one month off the grounds of game). He would also act on the left-handed side against Atlético (0-0) and against Bruges (2-2) on October 1. “3 points to get us up !!! Great team Very happy for my goal. “With this phrase, crowned with three photos of his match against Valladolid, Nacho summed up (Madrid, January 18, 1990) his performance against the pucelano team: a complete match from the right side with a goal included (celebrated with a warm hug with his coach Zinedine Zidane) to place Madrid in the first place of the qualifying table after losing it on day 8 of the championship.To Nacho, This season didn’t seem to bring anything positive. To begin with, the club decided to strengthen the central position at the beginning of 2019. Thus came Eder Militao, from Porto. his third central role a post was delayed before the arrival of the Brazilian central. That way I was going to see also reduced the amount of minutes I was going to play: in the previous six seasons, the Madrid defender had exceeded the 1,000 minute barrier. The defender had offers from Sevilla and Italian football to leave the White House, but decided to stay … and seize his opportunity. Precisely, at the premiere of the Champions League at the Bernabéu he suffered a serious injury in the internal collateral ligament: it would be more than two months in the dry dock. He would play again in Valencia on December 15, 75 days after his injury. He would repeat on the left side, as in his previous three games. He would also play against Athletic a week later, on December 22, against Athletic. He replaced Militao in the 57th minute when the Brazilian central suffered a blow in one eye. Nacho occupied his demarcation and was about to mark with a formidable stub that crashed into the crossbar. He has not played again until this week, when he did it before Unionistas and Valladolid, where he achieved both the triumph. “I am happy for the goal because all three points are important for the team, which wants to win the League,” he explained at the end of the match. The center again did what it knows best: to render from the first minute until the end of the match. The motto of Madrid. ‘Until the end, let’s go Real’. Zidane knows that it has an intangible value in Madrid’s deaf work. You already know: Nacho never fails …last_img read more
