The 14 Barcelona players who have never played a Copa del Rey final

Published

on

Barcelona are one of the world’s most decorated clubs and have more Copa del Rey wins than any other, but a large portion of the current squad have never experienced playing in the final of this tournament.

It’s not just the younger players, either, with Copa del Rey veterans such as Antoine Griezmann and Neto also never having played in the final.

Neto actually won the Copa del Rey while at Valencia in 2019, but was absent from the final as Marcelino opted for Jaume Domenech between the sticks.

A number of the Blaugrana squad are also relatively new to either the club or Spanish football in general and others yet to taste a Copa del Rey final include Miralem Pjanic, Martin Braithwaite, Frenkie de Jong, Sergino Dest, Pedri, Trincao, Junior Firpo and Matheus Fernandes.

It is also something new for youngsters Ronald Araujo, Ilaix Moriba, Riqui Puig and Oscar Mingueza.

All in all, 14 members of Barcelona’s squad have never played in a Copa del Rey final before.

Many of these players will feature in their first Copa del Rey final on Saturday in Seville against an Athletic Club side who, curiously, will have far more final experience, having lost the 2020 final just two weeks ago to Real Sociedad.

Barcelona Offer Aguero Two Years Contract?

Published

on

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has reportedly been offered a two-year contract by Barcelona.

The Premier League leaders have already revealed that Aguero will end his 10-year association with the club at the end of the season.

While the 32-year-old has been linked with a number of different English clubs, Camp Nou is regarded as a likely destination for the Argentine.

According to TyC Sports, negotiations between the relevant parties have been taking place in recent days, leading to terms being offered to the player.

The report adds that Juventus are also interested in securing the services of Aguero, claiming that the Italian side are able to offer the frontman a more lucrative contract.

Football Belongs To Fans – Gerrard Pique

Published

on

The European Super League was boldly announced on Sunday, with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea, Inter, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United the founding members. Florentino Perez, recently re-elected president of Madrid, was slated as being in line to serve as the first president.

The idea came under serious threat on Tuesday evening. Chelsea supporters gathered outside of Stamford Bridge in protest at the project, while City confirmed they’d enacted the process of leaving the Super League, shortly followed by celebratory tweets from Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte.

United confirmed that the club’s chairman, Ed Woodward, would leave the club at the end of 2021, while there was even rumours, refuted, that Andrea Agnelli had offered his resignation to Juventus and Florentino was beginning to come under serious pressure. Liverpool players, led by Jordan Henderson, posted a message on social media openly rebelling against the project.

Atletico were thought to have pulled out earlier in the evening, only for the claim to be refuted, while reports indicated that Joan Laporta was waiting for Barcelona’s socios to ratify their entry into the Super League before confirming it. El Partidazo de Cope claimed both Atletico and Barcelona were still committed to the project after a meeting between the 12 founding clubs, with only City out so far. Chelsea were said to be wavering.

Fabrizio Romano followed that up with a report that Florentino was running late for an interview on Spanish radio as he was locked in discussions with the ten other clubs still remaining in the Super League.

The English clubs, Romano claimed, are the key to what’s going to happen after City’s withdrawal, and this was confirmed shortly after by Paul Gilmour, who claimed that an announcement was imminent that all six Premier League clubs would be leaving the Super League this evening, news that was followed by a statement from Barcelona legend Gerard Pique.

“Football belongs to the fans,” he said. “Today more than ever.”
