first_imgIs there a Pellicer effect? Malaga has added this week four of the six points at stake with Sergio Pellicer as coach. A circumstance that has brought some tranquility in the thick sea that is lived in the club of La Rosaleda especially after the publicity of the sadly intimate video of Víctor Sánchez del Amo. Pellicer, who wore the blue and white elastic between 1995 and 1997 knows the club perfectly because, in addition to working in lower categories, he was part of different technical bodies in the first team.Interim Technician After the dismissal of Victor, the club decided to appoint Pellicer “interim coach” (sweetened way of saying ‘provisional coach’. This is the usual thing. If he wins, he stays; if he loses he leaves; if he wins three straight games and then he loses four, goodbye, but there is another reading whether he wins or loses: what happens in this economically blocked entity, with the mystic levitations of the horrific president / tweeter? Well, as the song says, “no money no longer is there rock and roll? “For you to understand. The quarry will continue to rescue Malaga both on the grass and on the bench.The ‘Victor case’ remains open. Investigations to clarify this bizarre affair continue. Two new detainees who were subsequently released, but on condition of investigated. We still have one of Victor’s phrases in his massive press conference last Wednesday. “I am overwhelmed. 960 profiles investigated.” It is a matter of extreme gravity. Harassment, extortion and vilification of the public image of a person. It can happen to anyone. And that is the most serious.Iván Rodríguez and the Ponferradina. It seems that this right side can find a way out of his “player without a chip”. Your more than possible destination may be Ponferradina. The team at El Bierzo is having a very interesting season and Ponferrada, one of the cradles of pop-rock in the 80s of last century, is an ideal place for you to feel like a footballer again. Great signing for the Ponfe.José Rodríguez and Numancia. Another of those who ran out of file. He arrived from Mainz 05 risking everything because he wanted to play at La Rosaleda. He signed a contract until 2023. Soria can also be a good option to smell like turf and competition. Antoñín and the Getafe. The football stuff. If Okazaki had not gone to Huesca, Antoñín would be dead of disgust in Third. Now it is little less than a salvation insurance for Malaga that needs to raise money anyway. Several First teams were interested in him, among them, Leganés and Sevilla among others. The offer was made by Getafe, 1.5 million euros. Málaga wanted 2.5 and to remain on loan in the Costa Rican team until the end of the course. This is a signing ’very Getafe’.Benkhemassa, five yellow. The Algerian is the signing imposed by Al Thani that has played the most minutes. 577 minutes distributed in 13 games have given him to accumulate five reprimands that will not allow him to play the next match against Mirandés (Sunday 26 12:00 hours). Another endBuenacasa injury. Malaga is not having any luck with injuries. The last example is Buenacasa. The striker was injured 12 minutes after jumping to the pitch of Fuenlabreño Torres. He suffers discomfort on the back of his right leg. Pending evolution.Judicial depression. The judge of the court 14 of Malaga dismissed the judicial intervention of the club requested by the Association of Small Shareholders (APA) and in which the City Council appeared. The magistrate wants more information and therefore requires a resource for reform. The fans relied on justice as a hope to get the deceased president / tweeter and official sinker out of the club, the foul Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani.The happy fashion of leaving the locker room clean. Malaga, once the players finished showering and preparing to leave the stadium, left the locker room untouched. Clean as a whistle, with nothing in between, all collected, as it was before the team gave it use. A detail that Fuenlabrada thanked with an affectionate message through his official Twitter account. “You are in the category that you are, you will always be Champions.”Hippodrome and tea. Another proof that the working life of Al Thani is reduced to social networks. While Málaga is on fire with the team touched and dismissed by valuable employees, the vice president and CEO of the Nasser Al Thani club, placing the panoramic image of a steaming glass of tea on his Imstagram as a child while watching a career horses of maximum importance for the future of Malaga. Hippodrome and you Malaga will succeed despite this harmful owner who wants to load it.last_img read more
