Ney and I had many technical problemsIcardi arrived, there was only Di Maria who was already at the top, so it was difficult to repeat the efforts.

Joan Jordan: “In the Bernabéu we will compete as animals”

first_imgHow do you rate your first half season at Sevilla?If in summer they had put me a role ahead telling me that by now I would have played everything I have played so far, I would have signed it with my eyes closed. I am very happy with how everything has gone since day one. I am in the best moment of my life at the family level and it is time to improve and take steps in my game. I am in the right place for it.Has Lopetegui had a lot to do with it?At every stage of my career I have had the ideal technician. Mendilíbar came to me perfect at a certain moment and now I think that the same happens with Lopetegui. He insists a lot on the ball and all that helps me. I come from a different football and being with Julen is going to make me a much more complete player.The competition in his position is tremendous.The better your partners are, the better they make you. Playing with people like Fernando, Banega, El Mudo … there is a lot of talent. Everyone has a lot of level, I think we are one of the most competitive centers in LaLiga.If competitive is the center of the Sevilla field, that of Real Madrid … They have a huge level and it will be nice to plant them face. I am convinced that we will compete as animals, that we will go for them and that we will fight for victory.Is the dressing room aware of the grim streak of Sevilla in the stadiums of the greats?Outside the home we have won a lot and I knew without being here that last year the trajectory as a visitor of Seville was quite bad. It was not a ghost that had been transmitted. And I don’t think anything follows us now. There has been no match in which Sevilla did not compete and that is what you have to be very proud of. At Madrid we will compete with our identity.And the lack of goal of the strikers how it is carried?The confidence of the group is total. They are dynamic in which you enter and from which it costs to leave. The important thing is the work that the team does, which generates countless arrivals and we know that the dynamics will change. The goals will come. I do not hide that it is something that we have to improve, but I am convinced that the goals will come.Do you see the team trained to achieve the goal of returning to the Champions League?I think we have a very wide staff. We are in the fight for the objectives and see ourselves fully trained. 2020 is going to be exciting.last_img read more

Benito, the mythical ‘Hacha Brava’

first_imgAfter retiring, he invested part of the money earned at Real Madrid in two pubs, which he set up with a friend and were the venue for soccer gatherings. Shortly after retiring, he was public relations for the club. Years later he worked in the technical secretary of Rayo Vallecano, when his friend José Antonio Camacho was the coach. He supported Florentino Pérez in the 2000 elections and won the club the Laureate in 1979, the second player behind Pirri to do so. His tribute, in 1984, was sad since he had to postpone it twice. It was played amid an AFE strike played in September, against Tottenham. Only 10,000 people attended. The goal was scored by Paco Bonet, another central defender. Rest in peace. They nicknamed him Brave Ax for his iron markings and sometimes his hard innings, always complying with the maxim “the ball passes or the player passes, but never the two” together “. This was Gregorio Goyo Benito Rubio, a native of El Puente del Arzobispo, a small town in Toledo near Talavera de la Reina, where he was born on October 21, 1946. From his childhood he was devoted to soccer, a sport that he began to play with the Salesians of Atocha (became champion of Spanish school in javelin throw). From there it passed to the Sage. Signed by Madrid (he became part of the lower categories at just 16 years old), he was loaned to Rayo Vallecano for two seasons (1966-68), to return to the first team. Martín Landa, his first youth coach, saw many conditions in him and promised him that he would go international if he worked hard to iron out some defects. Said and done. Benito stood out in the lower categories of the Spanish team with a generation in which other illustrious ones like Rexach and Rojo also shone. On August 4, 1969, he signed his first professional contract with what would be the club of his life, debuting in San Sebastián, against Real Sociedad on October 27. Little by little, he gained the confidence of Miguel Muñoz (he liked his courage to go to the crossroads, the aggressiveness with which he played and was respected by the opposing forwards), until earning the title in the season 1971-72. He took the job from his friend De Felipe, which motivated certain piques. In that decade of the seventies He earned the fame, encouraged by himself, of being the “most seasoned central defender in Spanish football.” His way of playing, open and always risking the maximum, led him to undergo five knee operations, two nose and one tibia. That says the medical history of an athlete who always played on the razor’s edge. Icon for much of the hobby (they chanted ‘Benito pulls the ax’ or ‘Benito kills’) he retired in 1982, with six Leagues, five Cups won and 22 times international, although he was left without going to the Argentina-78 World Cup. For history, there are the pleas of Biri Biri, a Sevilla player, who in one match, and due to the fouls he was receiving, turned to the Real Madrid player and snapped at him: “Please, Mr. Benito, don’t hit me anymore! ” Or his imposing header goal against Porto that gave him the pass to the Whites in 1979. His illusion was to withdraw having achieved a decisive goal for Madrid. And that one was.last_img read more
