Cabrera: “We are better when we don’t respect the rival”

first_imgThe white captain does not play. Are you the Blue Ramos on the stopped ball?Comparing with Ramos has no place in almost any facet. He has many goals. I nod down. Ramos is very important and will be marked in the history of Real Madrid. The team may notice their absence because it is their reference in the last decade.Are you still pending in the locker room of the Uruguay lists? Being Arambarri, Damián, Olivera and you …Before we talked more. We have been years and we think that one day they will call somebody, but it is not up to us. What is in our hands is to compete to play in Getafe and it is not better or worse to be in the selection.The one that does go with Uruguay is Fede Valverde. What do you think of its emergence?I had not agreed with him. He made an important leap with the coach’s confidence after years of playing little. He is young and had maturity and patience. When his time came he showed that he is fully prepared. Has Getafe given you the stability you expected when you left Uruguay?I came to Atlético de Madrid ten years ago and was an unconscious. I debuted at 17 and everything came to me very quickly. I didn’t take it with professionalism now. Every step I took helped me get where I am and I hope this is not my roof.At what point are you in your professional career?Last year I consolidated myself as a starter in a team that qualified for the Europa League. This year the coach continues to trust me. I want to finish well this season and improve every year. He also went through the Real Madrid quarry. What’s different about it?Real Madrid is a giant institution. I spent a year in Castilla and understood that they try to educate players with the philosophy of always winning. I still have a great relationship with the people around us. I keep the memory of the staff that is still there even if generations pass.Does the funnel narrow too much at that point?Of that Castilla only Lucas Vázquez reached the first team. You have to be very good and with him I have a great relationship. The others arrived at Primera, but Real Madrid are major words … They are players who have won everything. Last year they were transitioning after Cristiano left, but this course is spectacular. They forgot about Cristiano and now they all add up, they stepped forward as a team and that is why it will be a very complicated game.Do you already have the trick to get to this Madrid?When a child ends up winning one of the greats, it is because he left without complexes and daring. We are a good team when we don’t respect the rival. We’re better. Of course we respect, but you have to go out without shame and compete. You have to do what you know and multiply it by a thousand, because they are great. Let’s talk about this Real Madrid. How do you see it?last_img read more

“Hazard knows he will succeed in Madrid”

first_imgIn that sense, he recalled that, despite being a seeded in the tournament, he must play against Russia in Moscow and against Denmark in Copenhagen. “In a Euro so different Belgium to reach the final should play against four teams at home. But this format is worth it. Playing in twelve countries will be fantastic, “said Martinez, who sees” at a very similar level “to France, Croatia, Belgium, England, Portugal, Italy, Holland or Spain.The Belgian coach would like to be able to play in San Mamés the round of 16 of the Euro, something that would happen if he is champion of his group, especially for his goalkeeper coach, the Biscayan of Ondarroa Iñaki Bergara. “Playing in Bilbao would be worth it only for Iñaki. He is a great defender of the Basque Country and playing at home would be very nice,” he said. Belgium coach Roberto Martínez believes that Eden Hazard is already “adapted to what is” Real Madrid, as the white team is also “what the Belgian striker can give.” “There has been an evolution. In the beginning it was more that the players adapted to what Eden could take. The match with the PSG was key. There was a change of style and Hazard had a very important role,” Martinez said in his participation at the Bilbao Football Summit (BIFS’20) through a videoconference.The Catalan coach said about the arrival of the great star of his team at Real Madrid that playing in the white team “was his dream since childhood” and “marked the steps very well.” “He left through the big door of Chelsea, winning a title, and when he arrives in Madrid he wants to succeed and knows that he will succeed. The injuries are always setbacks, but Madrid is already adapted to what Eden can give and Eden to what Madrid is, “he said.On the other hand, he advanced that the goal of Belgium in the next Eurocup is to “try to be better” than in the last World Cup in Russia, which finished third with the “gold generation” of Belgian football. “You have to learn from the experience of the World Cup. Levels and ways of working were imposed and the team responded very well to external pressure. The Euro is going to go to the unknown. There has never been a tournament in so many countries and we have to prepare for the unknown, “he said.last_img read more
