“Real Madrid is the best thing that could happen to Reinier”

first_imgMauro Lucius Graça Parente Carvalho (Brazil, 1960), known as Mauro Brasília since his time as a futsal player, a discipline in which he became world champion in Spain in 1985, opens the doors of his home in Rio de Janeiro to ACE. In an upper-middle class urbanization, between ping-pong or soccer matches, it teaches this newspaper where Reinier Jesus grew up and lives, 17, the new signing of Real Madrid, with which AS was also in Rio ( see photo below). He is accompanied by his wife, Suzana, as kind and hospitable as he is: his home is that of AS during the three and a quarter hours that the meeting lasts. When were you aware of Real Madrid’s interest for the first time?In December. Before we did not believe that a club such as Madrid had an interest in Reinier. When the news came to us it was a party because I want a team as big as Real does not happen to anyone.Who first learned that the signing could be done, you or your child?I. The first thing we did was talk to Reinier, over the phone because he was on vacation at the beach, and at first he got a little scared, but then he understood that the Madrid project would be the best thing that could happen to him.Did they celebrate it?At home, with my wife, my daughter and friends. With a lot of peace of mind, we didn’t have a big party.Do you remember your son’s famous photo at the Bernabéu in March 2018? The twists and turns of life.I was with the Brazilian national team and they went to the stadium. What a coincidence, because today is one step away from stepping on the Bernabéu lawn!You were there too some time later.Yes, in February or March 2019. I was delighted with everything I saw. José Ángel Sánchez (General Director of Real Madrid) treated us very well. It was a wonderful experience. I hope you are closer to all that now.Did Madrid call you to receive them or did you propose it?Our agent invited us to know that. We were also in the training centers of PSG, Arsenal and Manchester City.Which left them the best feeling for infrastructure and treatment?All are very beautiful facilities, with high technology and with very trained people. Valdebebas is an impressive thing, like the City’s training center, which is a city. In the Arsenal they have many interesting, new things that we are beginning to know in Brazil. In Europe it is already on another step. What team in Europe was Reinier from?From Madrid, especially since the time of Cristiano. He also has Zidane as an important figure, especially because he looks a bit like his playing style and height, with a very classic football. Then Madrid was always the team he followed and always watched their games. Then there were others from Europe, such as Borussia de Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Juventus … The best Milan too, and now with (Lucas) Paquetá, who is our friend. But Real Madrid was always the team he liked most.Who wanted to be young?Kaka. There has always been much talk that they have a very similar style. I showed him videos of Zidane, Van Basten, Guti, which is also a phenomenon and I really liked what he did. Reinier had these Madrid players as a reference. From Brazil, to Ronaldo ‘The Phenomenon’, Ronaldinho, Kaka. And now, Flamengo teammates like De Arrascaeta, Bruno Henrique, Gabigol …How was he as a child?It started late, with eight years. It was not early. He was always a very smart player for his age. When all the children ran behind the ball, he positioned himself in such a way that it reached him and he was ready. I observed that very early in him. It is one of his best qualities: intelligence, positioning in the field, reading the game … As a child he taught him to improve the technique, sometimes he even cried saying that he did not want more exercises, but it has been very good.And as a person?He was very calm, very obedient to parents. He never gave much work at home. He watched TV, played with his friends in the street …Tell us some mischief or anecdote.When he was 11, in 2013, we arrived in Fluminense in 2013. He went to do his first training and, when he left the field, brought a folder. I asked him what it was and he replied that the documentation for the registration. I asked him what they were asking for, he took out the papers and began to read: “The birth record, the school certificate, the identity card and 3×4 photos”. Then I asked him how many photos were necessary and he answered me several times “3×4”, until at my insistence he said “Papai, you’re a donkey, I’m telling you 3×4!”. He was very young and did not know that 3×4 was the size of the photo.How would you explain to Madrid players the type of player your child is?It has always been an attacker. In the middle, not the bands. And more midfielder than forward.But in his appearances with the first team of Flamengo only Gabigol improves the scoring average. Does your evolution lead you to be more midpoint or second point?I see him more as a midfielder, a 10. With Jorge Jesús he has played out of his original position, always ahead, between the defenders, by the tip, which is not where he likes it most. He likes to come back, facing the rival defense.last_img read more

Hope meets opportunity

first_imgLAUSD board President Marlene Canter and board member Monica Garcia both expressed the district’s support and endorsement of the Broad endowment for the alliance, which will be able to expand the number of its charter schools to 20. “We are a huge big family,” Canter said, “and we’re all working for the same thing, which is to ensure that every single child has exactly what he should have in order for him to go to college.” tony.castro@dailynews.com (818)713-3761160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “All of us here today are seeing the tipping point in the charter school movement in Los Angeles,” Broad said in talking about his gift, which raises his foundation’s commitment to L.A. public charter schools to $36 million. “Charter schools are accomplishing what many public schools are struggling to do. They are dramatically improving student achievement. “What’s happening is we’re really seeing a revolution from the bottom up. Public charter schools are doing a better job educating children than other public schools. It’s not only parents, (it’s) students, teachers – they’re all demanding change.” Broad was joined during the announcement by representatives from the Los Angeles Unified School District, former Mayor Richard Riordan – the alliance chairman – and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell. Robin Kramer, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s chief of staff, said Broad’s “return on the investment … will be found in thousands of changed lives of families and kids.” Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad and South Los Angeles teenager Jesse Aguilar live at opposite extremes of the city, but their lives crossed Thursday at the intersection of hope and opportunity. Aguilar, 17, the son of Salvadoran immigrants, finds himself at the doorstep of the American dream thanks to Broad, whose education foundation funds the inner-city charter school that transformed the youngster into an honor student. “When I came to Gertz-Ressler High School two years ago I was a C student – today I’m an A student,” said Aguilar, “and when I graduate next year I’ll be the first in my family to attend a four-year college.” Aguilar shared his story at an auditorium at the Frank E. Baxter Education Center, just west of downtown, where on Thursday the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation announced it was injecting an additional $10 million in grants into the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools, creating another 13 new charter schools and giving other Jesse Aguilars a chance. last_img read more

Right for Man United? £100m-rated star’s performance assessed

first_img 4 Milinkovic-Savic is a strong aerial threat but only won four out of eight duels in the air against Costa Rica. He was not the match-winner, that honour went to ex-Manchester City star Aleksandar Kolarov, who netted a stunning free-kick.Most watching will have enjoyed the performance of Milinkovic-Savic, who played just behind Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.With all the intense scrutiny on his performance, talkSPORT.com took a look at the 23-year-old and how his display may help or hinder any possible transfer to Old Trafford.Milinkovic-Savic actually didn’t see any of the ball in the opening five minutes of the match but drifted between the Costa Rican lines and toward whichever full-back had the ball in the midfield area. Once the ball was in the final third, though, he occupied a central role, alongside Mitrovic as they looked to dominate their opponents in the air.When he did get on the ball after about six minutes he was quick to drive forward on the front-foot, dribbling past defenders before moving the ball out wide. Whenever either Aleksandar Kolarov or Branislav Ivanovic got into crossing positions, even from just beyond the halfway line, he surged towards the box in an attempt to get close to Mitrovic as Serbia attempted to go direct against their smaller opponents, which Man United boss Jose Mourinho may like as he seeks support for Romelu Lukaku from deep. A mark against him though is that despite his threat he only won four of eight offensive headers.Opposite number David Guzman attempted to tightly mark the 23-year-old but using his guile he was able get away with both his pace and skill and drifted off his radar with some fine movements.Off the ball he did well to cover Guzman, causing Costa Rica to attempt riskier forward passes, which didn’t pay off too often, and if the ball-player opted to not use Guzman, Milinkovic-Savic pressed to force errors and turnovers in possession, indeed the player completed two tackles and two block, but also gave away four fouls although all were in the Costa Rica half.At defensive set-pieces, Milinkovic-Savic showed excellent awareness and was able to react quickly to Costa Rica’s tricky routines. On one occasion, despite initially losing Giancarlo Gonzalez, he swiftly move to the goal-line when the ball was sent to the back-post and his man headed over. Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was on show for Serbia in their 1-0 win over Costa Rica. 4 4 Overall, Milinkovic-Savic certainly caught the eye with his movement and his presence in the final third. His creativity, close control, and dribbling make him a real threat, along with his aerial ability, but he was let down with decision making and his pass selection in the end which could be costly with Lazio wanting big money for their superstar.talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. Lazio midfielder leaves Costa Rica defender Johnny Acosta for dead as he dribbles towards goal. 4 Smart one-touch passes helped ball progression in tight situations, and his positional awareness were certainly highlights but there were poor decisions too and by completing just 66 per cent of his passes he won’t have done himself too many favours.His tendency to drift towards the right will also be of note to any Manchester United scouts watch. With possible new team-mate Paul Pogba preferring a position on the left of a three-man midfield it would be interesting to see whether Milinkovic-Savic would be afforded the same role with the Frenchman dropping into a two-man role with Nemanja Matic behind him.It seems unlikely Mourinho would allow both stars to operate together further forward and leave Matic, or incoming Red Devil Fred, alone in front of their backline in too many games.In terms of shooting, the Serbia star, with 27 minutes gone, almost broke the deadlock but a offside flag spared his blushes when an excellent touch was followed by a tame shot straight at Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas from 12 yards.An outrageous overhead kick, belying his 6ft 4in frame, got the crowd on its feet but a fine Navas save once again denied him, while a poor long-range attempt was a blot on his copy book with 75 minutes on the clock.Linking with his forwards, Milinkovic-Savic had some decent moments and almost grabbed an assist early in the second period with a delicate pass to Mitrovic but the Newcastle striker couldn’t beat Navas, before a superb chest-down to Mitrovic almost led to a goal for Filip Kostic. An acrobatic shot from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic almost produced a goal for Serbia. Manchester United transfer target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was one of the stars of the show as Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0 at World Cup 2018.The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the Lazio sensation over the last six months, and he didn’t do too much wrong in a decent all-round display.last_img read more


Half-time: Tottenham 0 Chelsea 0

first_imgChelsea are playing without a recognised striker at White Hart Lane but still managed to cause problems for Tottenham in the first half.Blues boss Jose Mourinho dropped Diego Costa and deployed Eden Hazard in a central role up front.Hazard responded impressively and headed over from Oscar’s cross as Mourinho’s side enjoyed a spell of pressure.Pedro has also been lively for the visitors and went close with a firm strike from near the edge of the penalty area.At the other end, Son Heung-min had a good chance for Spurs but his header from Harry Kane’s cross was saved by keeper Asmir Begovic, who also kept out an effort from Moussa Dembele.Chelsea, without injured skipper John Terry as well as Ramires, have defended well so far and Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas have had the upper hand in midfield.Chelsea: Begovic; Ivanovic, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Hazard.Subs: Amelia, Djilobodji, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Costa.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
