Valverde: “The expulsion of De Jong has hurt us”

first_img-This is football. It costs us and it costs everyone. Opposites close. They were motivated and it cost us to arrive with danger. But it is a matter of wear.-What body is left?– It leaves us bad because we wanted to add the three points. It seems you lose the points. We have made a game to try to win it, but we are left with ten …How do you see the Super Cup, how do you get it?Everything is matched and we will see how it goes to the Super Cup. We will go four strong teams and see what can happen.-Suárez and Vidal, keys.-We were playing very academics in the first half. We needed to revolutionize the game. It’s what it seemed to me and gives us that point of arrival-The first lap is over. Barça is the leader but arrives matched to the second round.-It’s all even. I think it costs to win and score points. It costs us and our rivals. The normal thing is that the leagues are disputed. You always look back and see that you have lost points but you have to fight and try to win it. Ernesto Valverde, coach of Barcelona, ​​spoke at the end of the match. These were his opinions. -Another match that can be traced, but then tied.-We have traced several matches and in some it has gone well but in others we have not been able to maintain the difference. The expulsion of De Jong has hurt us. We had the 1-3, it has been like that. And in one play they made us the goal. We had the game under control and after having overcome we were fine and eager to continue scoring. It has displaced us a little (the expulsion) and the opposite when it goes ahead.Why does it cost them so much?last_img read more

Wi, not Wie, leads at Honda Classic

first_imgPALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Charlie Wi was playing in the John Deere Classic two years ago when fans thought they recognized him. “My caddie overheard one of the spectators saying, `Oh, that’s Michelle Wie’s dad. He got a sponsor invite, too,’ ” said Wi, who – like Wie – missed the cut at that tournament. “I thought that was hilarious.” If Wi continues to play the way he did Thursday, more people will know who he really is. Bolstered by a birdie-birdie finish, Wi shot a 5-under 65 in windy conditions at PGA National, giving him a one-shot lead over Bernhard Langer after one round of the Honda Classic. He missed only two fairways, connected on 17 of 20 putts inside 25 feet, and made a 40-footer for birdie at the par-4 13th. “Today was definitely my day hitting the ball,” said Wi, who has made only 14 cuts in 30 previous PGA Tour starts, but finished tied for ninth earlier this year at the Buick Invitational. John Daly withdrew after suffering what was announced as a rib injury on the 12th tee, his third hole of the day. He tried to stop his swing when he heard a fan’s camera clicking, tried to hit another tee ball, said he couldn’t handle the pain and went off to seek treatment in the tour’s medical trailer. He declined comment. PHUKET, Thailand – Brad Kennedy of Australia shot a 7-under 65 and held a one-shot lead over Mike Weir and three others after Thursday’s first round of the Johnnie Walker Classic. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
