Setién, under Seville minimum: 14 players of the first team and only three strikers

first_imgQuique Setién has no players to discard. In fact, the situation is so dramatic that it summons all available first team players. And even then you cannot complete a list. It is what has to give approval to a template with 18 chips of the first team, knowing in advance that you can only have 17 because Luis Suarez is injured for long duration. The Cantabrian coach accepted the challenge with his eyes closed, letting the winter market pass without strengthening despite losing up to three players -Todibo, Aleñá and Wagué- not counting Carles Pérez, of the subsidiary, who participated in the dynamics of the first team since start of season Thus, the complete list of those summoned for the match against Betis (9 pm) in Benito Villamarín is as follows: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Sergi Roberto, Lenglet, Umtiti, Alba, Junior, Sergio Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal, Arthur, De Jong, Griezmann, Messi, Fati, Peña, Riqui Puig and Araújo. This anomalous situation makes him practically a survivor in every call. This Saturday he only had 14 players of the first team, because the long-term loss of Luis Suárez has joined that of Ousmane Dembélé, which will be operated next Tuesday in Finland for a complete rupture of the proximal tendon of the biceps femoris of the right leg and thus says goodbye to the season, plus the casualties of goalkeeper Neto and central Gerard Piqué. The latter also was already known low before being injured: he will complete this card cycle before Betis. With so few wicks, Setién has had to massively leverage the subsidiary -There is the circumstance that García Pimienta’s team is also under a minimum of troops-, taking a total of four players to Seville. Apart from striker Ansu Fati, who has been with the first team since the beginning of the course, the goalkeeper Iñaki Peña, the defender Ronald Araújo and the middle Riqui Puig will travel with the team. It is surprising that there are only three strikers on the list: Griezmann, Messi and Ansu Fati. Any eventuality would force Setién to denature the attack, having to put up Vidal or Sergi Roberto, for example.last_img read more

The foundation motto, “A Voice For Children,” does just that — giving the help and resources that children need for a successful future.“We’re trying to raise enough money so we can train more CASAs so that each child can have a voice,” Arians said. “That’s the one stable factor in most of their lives.“I’ve seen what Christine has done with a number of kids who really had no future and I know two right now who are in college and have a future. We want to be that voice for them and that person that’s stable in their life.”Among those expected to attend are Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson.last_img read more
