Celta goes into the rush: limit ten days to meet the future coach

As reporteda few days ago, Celta has clear deadlines to announce the name of the coach who will occupy Balaídos’ bench next season. If nothing gets twisted, this will happen the week after the conclusion of the light championship.
Unzué, who has already said that he will not say anything about his future until the end of the championship – next Saturday, the 19th against Levante – will be when he confirms his departure, something that is well known.
In fact, the sports director, Felipe Miñambres, has been talking to different technicians in Spain and South America for two weeks. In the executive list appear names like Jorge Almirón, Coudet, Careca, Óscar García, Garitano or Pellegrini. With this last one there are some doubts about his football proposal, although he likes the character that he prints to his teams.
These names and one more will be placed on the table by Miñambres next week. The sports director will express his opinion and the decision will be taken by the president, Carlos Mouriño, and its general director, Antonio Chaves. It will then be the moment to close the agreement with the coach and communicate it to the board of directors.
The intention is to make official the name of the coach in the first days of the week after the conclusion of the league championship, approximately in ten days. Shortly after it is officially confirmed that Unzué will not fulfill his second year of contract at Celta.
The club is in a hurry to close its coach for next season. Several teams seek technician within the same profile as the vigueses and also need to continue with the preparation of a template that will have several new features next year.

Sports Miguel Otero will stand for election

Miguel Otero, former president of the Federation of Peñas del Deportivo, has submitted eleven thousand shares, just over six percent of the share capital of the entity, to force the directive of Dépor has convened a Shareholders’ Meeting and to vote on the renewal of the Board of Directors. “We are showing the popular feeling, there is a terrible malaise due to a disastrous management of the Council and we transfer that complaint institutionally,” said Otero himself, who confirmed that he will be the person who will stand for the presidency.

The actions will arrive at the club’s headquarters in the next hours from a notary in the city. For Miguel Otero, June should be the month in which the elections were held, to have time to prepare the project for the next season, in which the Galician side will compete in the Second Division. What he did not want to reveal the possible candidate to succeed Tino Fernández is who will be the people who accompany him or what are the main lines of his project. That he wants to do in a few days.

Athletic The Muniain jump

The defeat of Anoeta supposed a greater punishment for Raul Garci’a and De Marcos, who will not be able to be aligned on Saturday before the Betis by accumulation of admonitions. The fall of Raúl García leaves the lions without their top scorer. Also without the header midfielder. And the gap left by the Navarrese falls into the arms of Muniain, who has not played since the start since he recovered from the torn ligaments he suffered on September 28 in the right knee. I would start 219 days after doing it for the last time.

Ziganda has taken care of his return to the pitch – five consecutive games and never more than half an hour – and now he is shuffling a screen shot for the Navarrese imp. Especially since the departure of Aketxe to Toronto is the only specialist in the squad to play in the playmaker.

The return of Muniain is being exemplary in terms of the physical response of the player. He received medical discharge and reappeared at just six months of his injury and the return to normal dynamics has not caused any muscle injury. Warned of the need for recovery because a couple of years ago had to go through the same in the other knee, the footballer has taken the turn with less anxiety than then. He said that from the first day is handled without fear or uncertainty. His capacity for sacrifice in the long and hard training of rehabilitation have done the rest.
Setién, on the bullseye

The ownership in San Mamés is one of the small prizes that Muniain can leave the season. When it fell on September 28, few would bet that it would start any of the games of the course from the beginning.

The return to the initial formation would cross to Munian with Setién, of which it has good memory of the last time that they saw themselves in San Mamés. The Navarrese was among the elect of Valverde that on April 14, 2017 they faced Las Palmas that the Cantabrian then directed. The Lions won 5-1 and Munian made his first double in the category.

Five challenges for the final sprint of Betis

With the European classification in the pocket since last Monday, Betis faces the last three days of the championship with several goals. Some, of group, like sealing the fifth place or establishing new records for the club. Others, invidivuales, with the canary Rubén Castro as protagonist. And there are also some sentimental characters, with the last Sevillian derby of the course on the horizon …

The fifth place

Due to prestige and economic issues arising from the distribution of television rights of the centralized sale of LaLiga, Betis seeks to consolidate the fifth position in the classification it currently occupies, with five and 11 points respectively over Villarreal and Sevilla, both with a match less. The difference between the fifth and the sixth place exceeds 6 million euros in revenue.

The best Betis of the century

The Verdiblancos are one win away from equaling their best score so far this century. With 59 points they have reached the record they achieved in 2001-02, with Juande on the bench, and they are only three points out of the 62 that they added in 2004-05, led by Serra Ferrer. That year, this score allowed them to qualify for the Champions League.

A for the goal-scorer record

With 56 goals scored in the 35 league games played to date, Setién’s have already equaled the number they achieved in the 2002-03 season and are a bit short of tracing the 2012-13 record. The record so far in the 21st century, which they achieved in the 2004-05 campaign with 62 goals, is a shot of six. They need an average of

Rubén Castro, for Rincón

The circumstances of the last matches and the tough competition up front have prevented Rubén Castro from enjoying too many minutes of play. But the possibility of equaling or exceeding the record of goals of Poli Rincon, with 78 goals with Betis First, is in the mind of Setién, who seeks the ideal time for the canary to have his chance.

And of course, the derby …

After the 3-5 of the first round, the Verdiblancos seek to endorse their great course with another victory against their eternal rival in Benito Villamarín, on the penultimate day of the championship. A match in which the Nervionians could be even playing the European classification, depending on what they do this Friday against Real and on Wednesday in the game postponed against Real Madrid.two goals per match to reach it.
