There will be a corridor from Seville to Real Madrid on Saturday in Chamartín

first_imgIn addition, there are precedents in reverse. In 2006, when Sevilla won their first UEFA Cup, the next league match was against the Real Madrid team at Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán. Then the whites paid tribute to the team at the time of Juande Ramos, who had released his European record.The gesture was a tradition that was seen normally until a few years ago, but in recent campaigns there have been episodes that have distorted the issue. Among other exceptions, Barcelona refused to make the white team a hallway for its conquest of the Club World Cup in 2017. “It is usually done if we participate in that competition. It is not the case now,” justified the director of Barça institutional relations, Guillermo Amor.Months later, Real Madrid returned the trip to Barça when he visited Chamartín with the newly conquered LaLiga title. Zidane explained then the refusal of the whites: “We are not going to make a corridor. It is a decision of mine and that’s it. I do not understand the corridor. Barcelona broke it. It is that tradition no longer exists.” LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 15, 2020 Sevilla will make a corridor to Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu before the dispute between the LaLiga match between the two next Saturday, starting at 4:00 p.m.. The Nervión team will have the usual and gentlemanly gesture between two teams when a title has just been won, in this case the Spanish Super Cup played last week in Jeddah.At the beginning of last year, Villarreal players made a corridor for Real Madrid players in the first meeting of 2019 for both teams after the white team manage to win the Club World Cup. Santi Cazorla, among other moments of mention, hugged his former teammate at Málaga Isco Alarcón while he was passing among the yellow players.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 15, 2020last_img read more

I have not changed a bit: Dipa

first_imgKolkata, Apr 27 (PTI) She may be hogging the limelight after becoming the first Indian woman gymnast to qualify for Olympics, but Dipa Karmakar says she has not changed a bit and happy that people have started recognising the sport. “Ive not changed a bit after my Olympic qualification, but Im happy that people have started recognising gymnastics finally,” Dipa said at her felicitation by Calcutta Sports Journalists Clubs Coal India Annual Awards here today. Theres has been an outpouring of congratulatory messages ranging from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar but Dipa said her feet were grounded and her focus is to “polish” her scores with less than 100 days to go for Rio. The SAI has announced Rs 1.10 crores for her training in the build up to the Olympics with RS 80 lakh on apparatus and the rest in foreign exposure, her coach Bishweshwar Nandi said. “Dipa will choose between two events — in Turkey and Singapore — in June for her build up event ahead of Rio. Theres no shortage of support for her, even Rahul Dravid (of GoSports Foundation) has extended full support,” Nandi added, The coach further said that the focus is now to polish her first landing score of 15,04 so that it betters her medal opportunity. Her choice of vault — Produnova — has the risk of fatal spinal injuries as very few gymnasts has attempted that but the 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist is relishing the challenge. “Every success involves risk and Im not afraid of taking risk. I believe in hard practice and my coach (Bishweshwar Nandi). Im just following him. My coach doesnt let me take any pressure,” Dipa said. “We need full fledged centres, only three four till now. The more centre come up the more popular gymnastics would become.” PTI TAP PDS PMadvertisementlast_img read more
