“It was heartbreaking to see him … it’s to show him what it means”

Kieran Newey, who is part of the Wolves animation group “Matchday Experience Day”, spearheaded the initiative

Fans of Wolves explained the purpose of having made the blanket in support of the Mexican Raúl Jiménez, after the forward suffered a skull fracture after the collision with the Arsenal player, David Luiz. The team’s supporters carried out an initiative to raise funds for the banner, money that was raised in a matter of hours.

“It all came from the injury and not knowing what was happening with Raúl. It was heartbreaking to see him with so many people around him and to be sent to the hospital without knowing if he was going to be okay. The WhatsApp group immediately wanted to find a way to show support Raúl from afar, “he commented Kieran Newey, who is part of the animation group of the Wolves “Matchday Experience Day”.

The follower of Wolverhampton explained what it has become Raul Jimenez for the English box and its fans.

“He is the true forward we have longed for for a long time. He has taken Wolverhampton to his heart and any player who gives his all for Wolves is always admired and adored by the Molineux faithful. That’s why when we saw him hurt on Sunday we knew that we should come together to show him what he means to all of us. “

With this initiative, the followers of the Wolves raised more than 300 thousand pesos to make the blanket, which they hope to show in the match against Aston Villa on the next day of the Premier League.

“We are getting designs by email at raulbanner@outlook.com including some from Mexico, which is amazing! The designs will be put to a public vote before being printed and installed in time for the game of the Aston Villa. Some amazing designs have been submitted and we can’t wait to see the winning banner at Molineux. “


After 9 months, fans return to stadiums in England | sports

LONDON (AP) – In seats far apart but united by the same melody, Arsenal fans have restored a sense of normalcy to an English stadium.

Even the usual chant against his North London rival was back: “Stand up if you hate Tottenham.”

The fans had to wait 271 days to get back to the Emirates Stadium and to see the way Alexandre Lacazette ran to celebrate with them. As he did in March against West Ham, Lacazette now scored first against Rapid Vienna.

Arsenal won 4-1.

On Thursday, the 2,000 lucky fans at the Europa League match were the first allowed to enter a competitive match in England since March 11 – the day the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic. Sports were stopped and stadiums closed to fans once competitions resumed.

The UK has not followed the trends in Europe. It has the highest number of COVID-19 deaths on the continent, with more than 60,000, and about 414 on the same day as the Arsenal match. But it is the first nation to allow spectators to return to a soccer match during the second wave of coronavirus.

Gunners supporter Steve Manzanero recovered from the coronavirus last month.

“It was quite unpleasant,” said the fan, who nevertheless considered it necessary for the fans to return to the stadiums, as part of the reopening of society.

“The worst has been listening to our team, our footballers who try to play without the noise of any supporter,” he considered.

Spectators are urged not to spank or hug each other as part of social distancing measures. It will be more difficult to prevent them from singing.

“I’m singing at the top of my lungs,” Manzanero said. “If I’m not hoarse by the time I get back, I haven’t had a good time.”

Highbury, the former home of Arsenal, was often the subject of ridicule from rival fans, who dubbed it “The Library”, considering it extremely quiet. The few spectators who turned out for Thursday’s game made sure they were heard instead, and made it clear that the quarantines have not dampened their spirits.

“You don’t exist anymore,” they chanted to the rival team’s supporters, even though there wasn’t just one, after Eddie Nketiah scored Arsenal’s third goal.

For now, only fans of the home team can enter the stadiums. Thus, only the Tottenham congregation will appear in Sunday’s derby, against Arsenal, corresponding to the Premier League.

Director praises Arsenal loan as ‘so professional’ and ‘worth every penny’

Hertha Berlin sporting director Arne Friedrich praised the motivation and professionalism of Arsenal loan officer Matteo Guendouzi.

Guendouzi signed on loan from the Bundesliga in the summer after two mixed seasons at Arsenal. The Frenchman showed promise in his freshman year, but he wasn’t the same last season.

His situation at Arsenal worsened when he was sent off towards the end of last season for a clash with Neal Maupay against Brighton. From then on he did not play.

At first, Arsenal struggled to find a receiver for France’s Under-21 international, and had to wait until the deadline to get it off the books. Following a recommendation from the former German defender and Arsenal Per Mertesacker, Hertha Berlin submitted a loan offer.

The start of Guendouzi’s life at his new club was delayed due to his quarantine, but he has since made three starts and one appearance as a substitute in the Bundesliga.

Hertha has liked what they have seen of him so far, both in training and on the pitch. In fact, former German star Friedrich speaks highly of her recent recruit.

“He is a fantastic player,” said Friedrich, via The Sun.

“We spoke with Arsenal before the transfer, obviously, and I also spoke with Per Mertesacker, with whom I played for the national team.

“Our relationship is very honest, very transparent, and he had already said that it has such good quality and he has already shown it.

“From the first day he came here to Germany on, he had to go into quarantine. I don’t know what happened, I think he or someone else tested positive, so he had to sit in the hotel for the first two weeks here in a new city.

“He was very professional and we brought him some gear, a bike to work on and he was very, very ambitious to hit the field as soon as possible.

“Since then, every day he shows in training how good a player he is.

“It is so calm. He wants every ball, even under pressure. “

Guendouzi ‘worth every penny’

It is not only his technical ability that has stood out, but also his mindset. Friedrich added: “He has his own understanding that he wants to win games.

“He has this intrinsic motivation to show the world how good he is. This is what we need, this is what everyone needs and he has a lot of confidence, which is also very important for our team because our team is still looking for structure.

“We are very, very happy to have him here and he is worth every penny.”

Guendouzi remains under contract with Arsenal until 2022. Therefore, the club will have to make a decision with him next summer.

I organized a league with tournaments for men and women and from there I went to Canada ”.

“I had a vocation as a coach, in Mexico I started the course and also took another that was given by FIFA in the Turks and Caicos Islands. When we moved to Canada there was great potential in children and that is how I came to the Canadian federation where we developed a program for children and there I worked for 13 years, “he said. In these child development programs he met and trained the now star of the Bayern Munich, Alphonso Davies.

With football in the blood

Ruben Flores, you don’t miss a single football game, especially in the Champions League, he didn’t have much to do to get his three sons to catch the ball, “At home there were always balls, on TV I always had football and from Very young people kicked the ball and there I not only realized that they liked it, but that they had a certain good coordination ”.

A Marcelo Since he was 3 years old, you could tell that he had a special talent and this is how his father explains it: “He is special, he hit him very well since he was a child and between my wife and I we always said ‘he has something’. Same case with Silvana and Tatiana although in the case of their daughters they began to stand out a little older.

Time put the family of Ruben in a dilemma, stay in Canada and continue to grow in many aspects or make the leap to England where he was already waiting for them Ipswich Town.

To end, Ruben he knows that they are living a dream: “I am a person blessed by what I have, I am grateful with life, football has given me everything I have and that my three children follow this path makes me very happy,” he concluded.
