Zubeldia will return to defense against Barcelona – Transgaming

by: Adam Smith


Igor Zubledia will return to the defense center this Saturday against Barcelona. The fact that Imanol Alguacil left him out of the call against Valladolid on this last day is a statement of intent. He didn't want to play with azkoitiarra if there were unforeseen conditions that conditioned the defensive axis the next day. His prudent decision worked, because the unexpected was the yellow that Robin Le Normand saw at the José Zorrilla stadium. The French defender has seen the yellow card removed, fulfills the cycle and is therefore sanctioned and cannot play against Barcelona. It's not a problem anymore, but it makes it very difficult for the Oriotarra coach to complete the rearguard on the visit of the first co-leader.

Because Aritz Elustondo is still injured and, frankly, it has gotten complicated in order to arrive in time for a day. But the besaindarra is clear that he will hasten his options to recover from his ankle injury. In Monday's session, he was seen running softly on the grass, but it is too early to know whether he can recover from Barcelona's visit to the Reale Arena. Without sanctioned Elustondo and Le Normand, the property's door should open to the central room of the first txuri-urdin squad, Modibo Sagnan. But the Frenchman has not played for ten months, considering he was hired by the injured Lens. That is why he does not yet know what it is to debut in the highest category of national football, to the point that has not yet been called in any official match. Yes, he played against Osasuna in the friendly at Zubieta from the last break, and in training he is not leaving bad feelings. But the sheriff still sees him green and without competition. Barcelona is not the best game to enter the realistic arena and debut with the txuri-urdin jacket.

All this means that the realistic coach has only the possibility of Zubeldia returning to the defense axis on this day. It is, of course, a position he is more than used to, because he has performed on more than one occasion this season, performing well despite his natural position being that of midfielder. The sheriff took all these possible incidents into consideration and did not want to play in Valladolid. He risked running out of reliable players for this position. He can also bring in Aihen Muñoz on the left and Nacho Monreal in the center as he has occupied Arsenal in recent seasons. But that hasn't happened so far, and Monreal has never left the left-handed side since signing for Real.

Board of shareholders with registration.

The Royal Society will submit a record number on Tuesday afternoon for its shareholders to vote. Because he will sing the highest budget in all of his history, with over $ 112 million, which has allowed him to invest more than 60 million of his coffers in renovating the Anoeta stadium. The General Shareholders' Meeting will start at 7 pm and will be held at Kursaal Palacio de Congresos. It is not expected a very high attendance, even if it is a tense meeting, because the social climate in Real is very calm and, fortunately, is far from the problems experienced a decade ago. Perhaps the most recurring questions and concerns have to do with the discomforts that & # 39; Reale Arena & # 39; still generates when it is still under construction.
