What happened to Pouso? The miracle technician of Mirandés at the time of Pablo Infante

first_imgThe new format of the Copa del Rey has once again raised the Mirandés to the top, years after that unforgettable generation led by Pablo Infante, who arrived at semifinals being in Second Division B. Now, with Iraola at the controls, they have achieved the same goal, still hoping to eliminate the Royal Society. However, before they did not have the endorsement of the uncertainty of playing crossings at 90 minutes and achieved their feat based on eliminating rivals of First. That great story is mainly remembered the figure of that banker-footballer who was a pichichi of the competition, but his technician is barely remembered: Carlos Pouso. The Pontevedra requirementCarlos Pouso came as a man of confidence of the board to reverse a bad start to the season and resume the ascent course. However, it has not achieved the expected results. In 2020, Pontevedra has not achieved a single victory and the coach was clear after a new defeat against Oviedo B: “If the problem is me, the solution is easy“Thus, President Lupe Murillo has once again bet on Jesús Ramos, although she maintains confidence in the former Mirandés who” will remain linked to the club in other functions until the end of the season. “The deed that will accompany you foreverThis Copa del Rey has shown the crushed world like Real Jaén against Alavés or the massive fall of LaLiga SmartBank clubs in the first two rounds. But What would have happened if it had been played back and forth? Possibly, the surprises would have been reduced considerably. This fact further brings the Mirandés deed to the podium of the unsuspected successes in Spanish football in the 21st century. Along the way, those of Pouso eliminated Amorebieta, Balompédica Linense and Logroñés before sixteenths. There the faces were first seen with an elite (the Villarreal), to which they overthrew a double party.PAULINO ORIBE & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Carlos Pouso poses with Mirandés fans before one of the 2011-12 coperas qualifiers.PAULINO ORIBE (DAILY AS) Later, they would do the same with Racing and Espanyol. They could not with the Athletic Club, which ended the dream in the semifinals. At least, that not only remained in the memory of the most faithful. At the statistical level, Taking a look at the 2011-12 Copa del Rey numbers means remembering the figure of Pablo Infante as top scorer of the tournament. Perhaps because of that, or because of the history of the attacker, his name is the one that has lasted the most in time. That, however, was orchestrated by a man who has rubbed shoulders in the mud of Second Division B since then, in his football. He is Carlos Pouso.center_img In the 2011-12 season, fans had a double celebration. On the one hand, the semifinals of the Copa del Rey and on the other the ascent to Second Division. Surely, Carlos Pouso received dozens of offers as a result of his successes, but opted for the continuity of the project and join the adventure of the silver category, after not having too much fortune in the Eibar three years ago. He did it and succeeded again. With suffering, yes, since his team was for 21 days in relegation places, but ended up saving agonically on the penultimate date.However, he did not renew his contract and took a few sabbatical months before sitting back down on a bench. He did it in the month of May, when he signed with the Logroñés Sports Union for two seasons. He would not complete them in the armchair at the foot of the lawn, although he did occupy the position of sports director for a few months. The Racing, in 2018, and the Pontevedra, in the current campaign, have been their last destinations. Now, just on the day he has been dismissed from his work at the Galician club, he makes the jump to the offices temporarily.last_img read more

LaLiga and CSD do not understand AFE’s complaints about the protocol

first_imgNeither the Superior Sports Council (CSD) nor LaLiga understand the complaints of the Association of Spanish Soccer Players (AFE) to the protocol approved by the Task Force to Promote Sport (GTID) to return to play because “it is a protocol endorsed by Health.” Both organizations also remember that AFE itself is part of the GTID and that he had the opportunity to present his proposals during the meetings to discuss the protocol.In addition, in LaLiga they assure that in AFE they had the keys of the protocol and the draft of the document “for almost a month” and that the union representatives where the protocol was studied “made no objection”. In LaLiga they believe that the machinery to return to activity is running and that the professional players of First and Second they will start in the next few days with the gradual return to training. Regarding the concentrations, another point about the AFE complains, in LaLiga they understand that “they are to protect the health of the players and their families” and remember that “they are approved by protocol and therefore have the approval of Health” In very similar terms to those of LaLiga, the CSD has manifested itself. Council sources have indicated that “the constructive will has reigned at all times within the Task Force for the Promotion of Sport (GTID).

Bolt, SFP set to top RJR Awards

first_imgWhen the RJR Sports Foundation announces speedsters Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce as the 2015 recipients of the National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the year awards at tonight’s ceremony at The Jamaica Pegasus, it will hardly come as a surprise to many.Likewise, considering the year they both had, shot put strongman O’Dayne Richards – last year’s runner-up and sprint hurdles world champion Danielle Williams are sure to get hearty receptions, as they head the candidates seeking the runner-up spots.Richards struggled on the Diamond League circuit before coming to life at the Pan American Games in Toronto, where his national record heave of 21.69m won him a gold medal. He would repeat the mark a few weeks later at the World Championships in Beijing, to take the bronze and become Jamaica’s first medallist in the event at that level.Hansle Parchment’s World Championships silver medal in the 110m hurdles also makes him a strong contender for the runner-up spot. Additionally, the towering hurdler is the first Jamaican to win a silver medal in the 110m hurdles in senior-level global competition, given his result – like Richards’, considerable historical significance.He might, and dare we say, should, however, be edged out by Richards’ back-to-back national record efforts.Williams, flying below the radarOn the female side, Williams, flying below the radar in every pre-championships predictions, delivered when it mattered most in winning the gold medal in the 100m hurdles at the World Championships.That was a massive result for the pint-sized hurdler, who returned the gold to Jamaica after Brigitte Foster-Hylton’s win at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin.It should be enough to see her across the line – behind Fraser-Pryce, with some other top contenders such as World Championships 200m silver and 4x100m gold medal winner Elaine Thompson; boxer Alicia Ashley, who successfully defended her WBC super bantamweight title; World Championships bronze and relay gold medal winners – Shericka Jackson (400m and 4x400m); Veronica Campbell-Brown (200m and 4x100m); and ever-present swimmer Alia Atkinson (50m breaststroke silver and national record as well as 100m breaststroke bronze at the FINA World Championships plus a year-ending number-three world ranking in the 50m breaststroke, all presenting strong claims.Little doubt, however, as to who will spend tonight as the country’s top male and female sporting stars.Save for some major surprises, speed-king Bolt will win his sixth National Sportsman of the Year title.This will give him sole command of the second-place spot in the all-time list, which is headed by boxer Michael McCallum, who punched his way to seven titles.Bolt shook off a rusty start to his season to win World Championships gold medals in the 100m (with the third-fastest time in World Championships final history – 9.79), the 200m and as a member of Jamaica’s 4x100m relay team.Last year’s nod to Atkinson was the first time a non-track-and-field athlete won the Sportswoman of the Year award since 1976, when cricketer Vivalyn Latty-Scott won the award.Fraser-Pryce, who won this award in 2012 and 2013, won gold medals in the 100m and 4x100m at the World Championships as well as took the 100m title in the IAAF Diamond League series.last_img read more

MoBay City Run seeks more $$ for students

He is among the favourites again this year.Martin took the female first place medal and trophy in a time of 47 minutes and 10 seconds and could repeat as champion.However, with an expected increase in overseas participation, especially among the female runners, Martin will be hard pressed to hold on to her crown.In preparation for the event, organisers have maintained the fitness camp, which will run from March 12 at the Old Hospital Park, on Gloucester Avenue.The team section was one of the most exciting aspects of the City Run last year and will again be a spectacle of colours.
