Apertura 2013: San Luis adopts Jaguares de Chiapas

Yes, it ends badly. One fine day they were in San Luis and decided to move over to Chiapas. Carlos Lopez Chargoy cited "lack of support from local business." On May 28, one week before the draft, Sergio Bueno made the comment: "Now we don´t have items such as the emblem or logo very clear." Days later, they would confirm that they continue to call themselves the Jaguares but inherit San Luis´ numbers on the relegation table.

Another of those tall tales that proliferate in the history of Mexican soccer and that continue to appear despite the launch of the "remodeled" MX League. The only thing they show is a lack of seriousness.

If someone is accustomed to these kinds of mutations, it is Sergio Bueno, who will be coaching his 12th different first-division team, at least officially, since in San Luis he did not sit on the bench even though it was known that he was the one coaching. Of all the teams he has coached only one has won more games than it has lost in the final tally: Santos in 2009 with 11 wins and 6 losses.

They made 18 changes in the draft! Nothing more. The great majority were on loan. Developments of note include: Miguel Martinez (Argentine midfielder, former Jaguares), David Toledo (defender from Queretaro), Paco Torres (midfielder who played for Santos), Sergio Santana (midfielder or forward, former Querétaro), Carlos Ochoa (substitute forward for Santos), and Luis "Macue" Robles (midfielder or defender from Atlas). There are no great frills.

Also arriving were a pair of promising players who hope to have more playing time here than in the teams they came from: Martín Zuniga from America and Cesar de la Pena from Monterrey.

The foreign contingent is as follows: Lucas Viatri would come on loan to Jaguares for a year. The 26-year-old Argentine, former Boca Juniors, Emelec from Ecuador and Maracaibo. David Mendieta, 26-year-old Paraguayan midfielder, comes over after playing for San Lorenzo. Javier Muñoz Mustafa is kept after a less than solid season with San Luis. The Colombian, Aviles Hurtado, was not an option for Pachuca, but was for Jaguares.

They actually have to form a team from nothing. In one way or another it is a change of position from fourth to twelfth and, as if that were not enough, they will start in 17th position in the relegation table. We’ll see how they complete the sentence: what starts off badly...

Ronaldinho: Copa Libertadores title Atlético Mineiro´s greatest wish

Ronaldinho admits Atlético Mineiro has "no greater wish" than to win the Copa Libertadores title for the first time in the club`s history.

The Brazilian club will face Paraguay`s Olimpia in the final of South America`s version on the Champions League following their dramatic penalty shootout victory over Argentine club Newell`s Old Boys in the semifinal.

The decider`s first leg will be played in Asuncion Wednesday and the return match in Belo Horizonte, July 24.

Ronaldinho took to Twitter to voice his views and said: "We are training hard for these last two matches.

"We have no greater wish than to bring the title to Atlético."

The 33-year-old and his team travelled to Asuncion on Monday evening and will train just once in the Paraguayan capital before Wednesday`s huge match, reports Zee News.

The former Barcelona star has been in great form throughout the competition with four goals and eight assists from 12 matches.

Thiago Silva rules out Barca move

The defender insists he has no plans to force through a move to the Blaugrana and will honour his current deal with the Ligue 1 champions

Paris Saint-Germain star Thiago Silva has confrimed he has no interest in forcing through a transfer to Barcelona this summer.

The Seleção captain insists he will honour his current deal with the Ligue 1 champions, reports Goal.com.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to the Spanish giants for a number of weeks weeks, although his agent confirmed on Monday that the Brazil international would see out his current contract in France.

Silva has now issued a statement declaring his commitment to Laurent Blanc´s side, insisting that rumours he would be meeting the club´s hierarchy to demand a move are untrue.

Accoring to Marca the statement read: "I saw the news that I would travel to a meeting with the president and new coach of PSG to discuss a possible transfer.

"That will not happen, because I will complete my contract I have with the club, as I feel I have always done."

The former AC Milan defender signed a five-year deal at Parc des Princes only 12 months ago following his €42 million switch from San Siro in the summer of 2012.

Inter back in for São Paulo´s Wellington - report

Inter Milan are back in the race to sign Wellington from São Paulo thanks to Galatasaray turning their attentions to the signing of Felipe Melo.

The Italian club have been linked heavily with a move for the 22-year-old this summer, but were reportedly out of the running after the Turkish club had reportedly reached an agreement with the Brazilian club.

However, with Galatasaray now keen to sign Felipe Melo from Juventus, Wellington’s arrival would be blocked due to the Turkish side having no available openings to sign foreign players.

Sky Sport 24 reports that the Nerazzurri are now back in the running to sign the defensive midfielder.

Wellington is a product of the São Paulo youth system, eventually becoming a first team player in 2008. He has since gone on to make 63 appearances while scoring two goals for the club.

Copa Libertadores 2013: Olimpia´s road to the final

On Wednesday 17th July, Olimpia play Atletico Mineiro in their 7th Copa Libertadores Final as they become the only team to have reached the last two in every single decade since the competition began in 1960. It hasn’t been plain sailing though, they had to come through the qualifying round having failed to win either short season in 2012 and around November last year following the departure they were struggling to rack up enough points to even make the pot for the Libertadores draw.

But they got over the line, Ever Almeida was brought in as coach to instill some of that winning mentality and use the experience that had seen him win 10 league titles and 6 continental trophies with El Decano as a player. The first qualifier came around so early, in January, that Almeida Sr. was still packing his bags for Paraguay and so his son Iván took charge of the game against Defensor Sporting in Montevideo, a dull 0-0 draw. In Asunción there were no problems however, the trusty head of Juan Carlos Ferreyra broke the deadlock before Eduardo Aranda sealed the win with a spectacular strike. With 16 shots on goal compared to Sporting’s five, there was never any doubt who deserved a place in Group 7.

Group Stages

Qualifying top from a group including Newell´s Old Boys and Universidad de Chile is no mean feat and this was where Olimpia really found themselves and Almeida showed his tactical nouse. They held out for over an hour in Rosario before being outdone by Tata Martino’s team in the opener but they demonstrated that despite not having the big names of 2012 this was a resolute side. Juan Manuel Salgueiro shined the next week against the Chileans, the Uruguayan would grow in confidence as the tournament wore on. Despite a slip up against Lara at home (throwing away a two-goal lead) they plastered the Venezuelans in Barquisimeto and played a classic counter-attacking game to edge La U in Santiago. By the time Newell´s visited the Defensores del Chaco there was no pressure on Olimpia who had already qualified. Playing with the shackles off they ran riot in the second half against the ten-man opposition and Salgueiro was the star once again with two goals, his second something special.

Breaking the Tigre curse

The unfashionable Tigre managed to reach the Copa Sudamericana final in 2012 beating Cerro Porteño of Paraguay in the process. In their first ever Copa Libertadores they qualified at Libertad´s expense with an incredible 5-3 victory, it was the first time since 2009 the Asuncion-based club had failed to reach the quarter finals. When Olimpia were beaten in Victoria it looked like the Tigre curse on Paraguayan clubs would continue, but Herminio Miranda’s vital away goal – a fantastic freekick – did give them some hope for the return leg.

http://www.youtube.com/w…-hl9465lyE8

Back in Asunción the Olimpia fans packed into the Defensores del Chaco which saw the first of the “mosaics” which have been a highlight of this campaign. The fans surely played their part as Olimpia recorded their third straight home win in clincial fashion. An excellent volley from Fredy Bareiro on his weaker left-foot put the Paraguayans level on aggregate (and ahead on away goals) while Papparatto’s comic own goal doubled the lead on the night and secured the passage into the last eight. Bareiro’s attempt was the only one on target in a tense second half.

Fluminense and Fred nullified

https://www.youtube.com/…NMGXgLzVarE

A stellar performance from Uruguayan goalkeeper Martin Silva was enough for Olimpia to come away from a tough game in Rio de Janeiro with a scoreless draw. Once again the return was in Sajonia and the players were received by a full house and another mosaic.

This time they couldn’t stop the Brazilians scoring, Fluminense needing just nine minutes to go in front, but Salgueiro struck twice from deadballs (a freekick and a penalty) to send the team into the final four. Star striker Fred would turn out for the national team scoring twice against Italy, Uruguay and Spain as they won the Confederations Cup, but he hadn’t been able to get one over on Miranda, Manzur or Martin (Silva).


Santa Fe spurned by the Silvas

The Colombians arrived in the Paraguayan capital looking to get stuck in and after a series of heavy fouls in a turgid first half they managed to bring the game to 10 vs 10 as perenniel early-bather Gerardo Bedoya was sent off yet again but managed to provoke playmaker Juan Manuel Salgueiro into some “palabrotas” (swear words) that was enough to see him get a straight red too. In theory Olimpia should have been clueless in the second forty -five minutes without their most creative player but Ever Almeida brought on Alejandro Silva in an inspired change, the subsitute’s pace too much for the Santa Fe defence. Silva won a penalty and then set up Juan Carlos Ferreyra (another halftime change) as Olimpia kept up their record of scoring at least two goals at home in every match. Watch the goals to my favourite commentator here.

http://www.youtube.com/w…re=youtu.be


There were doubts as to whether the two goals were enough to take to the altitude of Bogotá but one thing the doubters hadn’t factored in was the presence of Martin Silva. The 30-year-old was in inspired form again as he denied several goalscoring opportunities, eventually the Colombians got a goal but as they peppered their opponents in the dying minutes the big Uruguayan was on hand to keep everything out. Olimpia were going to the final.

Arango not worried by competition

Borussia Moenchengladbach midfielder Juan Arango insists he is not worried by the competition he will face from the club´s recent signings.

The Bundesliga side have been busy during the close-season, bringing in Raffael from Dynamo Kiev and Max Kruse from SC Freiburg - both of whom can play in Arango´s attacking midfield position.

But the Venezuela international is happy to see Lucien Favre strengthen the squad, as Gladbach look to improve on last season´s eighth-place finish.

"They are very good players and excellent reinforcements. Raffael´s football quality is clear. Kruse had a great season in Freiburg," he told Bild.

"I love competition and I look forward to playing with two creative colleagues. Every professional is satisfied when a team is strengthened. So, as I was looking forward to (playing with) Marco Reus, I´m looking forward to Raffa and Max."

Arango also explained his desperate need for a break following a gruelling 2012-13 campaign with Gladbach.

"It was the first time in 13 years that I really had leave. I have played and had only one week´s break almost every year with the Copa America or World Cup Qualifiers. Now I´m totally relaxed and in top shape," he added.

The 33-year-old made 41 appearances in all competitions last term, scoring nine goals and providing 14 assists.

Older players thriving in Brazil´s youthful league

15 July ~ Brazil is often viewed from without as a kind of adventure playground for teenage footballing savants. You´ve seen them on YouTube, running amok as lumpen-heeled centre-backs tie themselves in knots and groan with humiliation. From Pelé´s riotous early years through to the marketing-friendly ascent of Neymar, youth has often held pride of place in a country that, in many ways, is itself taking its first steps. But in recent years the Campeonato Brasileiro is increasingly a league in which older heads can flourish.

Last season a rejuvenated Ronaldinho waltzed his way to the Brazilian Player of the Year award, dragging Atlético Mineiro from crisis-happy also-rans to title contenders in the process. He was joined in the team of the year by Zé Roberto, whose energetic performances on the left of Grêmio´s midfield continue to belie his 39 years. Since 2008 Dejan Petkovic (38), Roberto Carlos (37) and Marcos Assunção (35) have all featured in Placar magazine´s Bola de Prata – awarded to the best XI of each Série A season.

Things haven´t been any different this year. The star turn has been Clarence Seedorf, who has rolled back the years with a sequence of blistering displays for improving Botafogo. After such a distinguished career in Europe the Dutchman could have been forgiven for taking things easy upon his arrival 12 months ago – he wouldn´t have been the first to be seduced by the beaches, barbecues and beer. But Seedorf has shown laudable commitment to the cause both on and off the pitch, leading the Rio outfit to a state championship title and embarking on a PR offensive that has seen him charm the Brazilian public.

Former Fenerbahce favourite Alex is also enjoying a fine season. Repatriated by hometown club Coritiba after a 16-year absence, the playmaker has already scored 18 goals since the turn of the year and has set up countless more. He, like Seedorf, has benefitted from the fact that his game was never based on pace; quickness of thought can easily compensate for ageing legs, particularly in a league that is hardly known for its ability to produce cerebral, tactically astute players.

The success of footballers at the top end of the age spectrum is dictated in part by market forces: with so many Brazilians being snapped up by European clubs or tempted by Middle Eastern cash during their prime years, the vets have to step up now and again. While fans have long since resigned themselves to seeing only the bookends of their idols´ careers, there remains plenty to get excited about. As the recent displays of Ronaldinho, Seedorf and the rest prove, Indian summers can be just as alluring as youthful emergence.

A happy read.....

Welcome to the beautiful game

Football clubs can easily be used as stealing machines. Here is an instruction manual. The stories are real, but most details are concealed


A NEW football season approaches, and with it new players, overpriced replica kits and unsavoury club owners. If you are one of them, most observers will wrongly assume that you are laundering only your reputation, and that you are willing to lose millions on a philanthropic sporting folly to do so. That is too kind. Your new asset will not just help you wash your dirty money. It will make more of it too.

It is a good time to enter the football racket. Banks are less generous and sentimental about loans. Tax officials are less lenient, too, as Rangers, a big Glasgow club, discovered: it was forced into liquidation by tax arrears, afterwards being reconstituted under new ownership. But hard times mean clubs are desperate and going cheap. Set up a holding company (or a nest of them) in a discreet jurisdiction, as many owners do, and you have a money-laundering and embezzlement machine at your disposal. The authorities are unlikely to bother you.

Start with ticket revenues. Exaggerating the attendance at matches lets you run some of the dirty takings from your previous career through the turnstiles, turning them into legitimate income (this particular ruse works best if you buy a middling club, where games are not routinely sold out). Conversely, if you need some petty cash you can siphon off the gate receipts—a tactic that some of Brazil’s football kingpins, the cartolas (“top hats”), are rumoured to have employed in the past.

The market in players, between clubs and across national borders, is another golden opportunity. Time was when the scams were simple: bent coaches would take “bungs” (backhanders) to buy a player with the chairman’s wallet. Now the tricks are more complex—and some owners are in on them. One aim is money-laundering. Transfers involve huge and largely subjective sums (since a player is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for him). With agents or other intermediaries involved, payments pass through multiple hands and jurisdictions: perfect for concealing the origin and direction of the cash. Sell a player to a friendly club that publicly overstates the true price, and you can supplement the real fee with a couple of million ill-gotten euros of your own: that money is now clean and in your club’s accounts. Pull the trick in reverse—inflating the value of a player you are buying—and you gain a usefully overvalued asset on your balance-sheet, which will help your club to borrow.

Transfers can also help you privatise club revenues and defraud minority shareholders. With the help of a co-operative agent, the fees, commissions and even parts of players’ salaries can find their way back to you (and away from the taxman). Agents who are personal friends may be safest. The regulations which govern transfer deals are easy to circumvent.

Another wheeze—annoyingly banned by some national football associations—is third-party ownership, where the rights in a player are owned (or part-owned) not by his club but by an outside consortium. So you can secretly invest in players whom you then rent to your club, trousering the proceeds. Or sell your club’s star man to your front company for a depressed fee, then sell him on at full price. Naturally you will award the club’s construction and catering contracts to your own firms.

Matches made in heaven

Most outsiders reckon that, when games are rigged, infiltrators are to blame: Asian criminal gangs and Balkan gangsters are the usual suspects. But the surest fixes are inside jobs. After all, you pay the players’ salaries, so you are in the best position to suborn them. You can decide who is picked or dropped, or who goes on the transfer list (or doesn’t). That gives dodgy owners plenty of scope to influence players’ behaviour. Footballers who are paid badly or erratically, as they often are in eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union (see chart), tend to be most susceptible.

But match-fixing happens in big and supposedly reputable European leagues, too—and because bookies assume the games are clean, you can lay big bets inconspicuously. If you or the players balk at losing on purpose, you can still arrange—and bet on—in-game details, such as the timing of the first corner kick. When the fix is in, consider emulating the Macedonian chairman who sold on the details of a thrown game to mafiosi. Betting syndicates will even buy intelligence on players’ injuries, nervous breakdowns and so on. Happily for you, match-fixing is hard to prove, and most police forces aren’t interested.

These are only the basics: after a season or two you can go in for more extravagant scams. Be inspired by Arkan, the deceased Serbian paramilitary who is said to have used his football club to traffic arms and drugs. It might be best, however, to stay clear of Russia, where the game has an alarming death rate, and where warlords from the North Caucasus (sinister even by football’s standards) have recently started buying into the business. Caution is also advisable in Bulgaria: 15 football club bosses have been murdered in the top football league just over a decade. An American diplomatic cable written in January 2010, and published by WikiLeaks, said “allegations of illegal gambling, match fixing, money laundering, and tax evasion” plague the Bulgarian game.

Some national associations do a spot of due diligence on new owners, but this is unlikely to interfere with your plans. Having a criminal record can be a bar to acquiring a club—but if you made your money in a place where the law was flexible and the courts accommodating, such inconvenient details can be scrubbed from your record. Enjoy the beautiful game!

Shakhtar´s Alex Teixeira and Douglas Costa sign new long-term deals

Alex Teixeira and Douglas Costa have committed their long-term futures to Shakhtar Donetsk with new five-year contracts.

Costa has been a big hit since he moved to the Donbass Arena from Grêmio for €6 million in January 2010, helping his side to four successive domestic titles.

Likewise, Teixeira also made the move from Brazil to the Ukraine during the same transfer window, leaving Vasco da Gama for €6m, and has been an integral part of Shakhtar’s domestic dominance.

The young Brazilians have caught the eye of Premier League and Serie A clubs after their displays in the Champions League in recent seasons.

However, the duo, who have represented the Seleção at Under-20 level, will remain in the Ukraine until the summer of 2018, after the club confirmed the contract extensions on their official website.

Shakhtar currently have ten Brazilian players on their books after recruiting Fluminense’s Wellington Nem, Grêmio midfielder Fernando and Fred from Internacional this summer.
