Si Renault gasta mucho dinero en fichar a Alonso se arriesga a una revolución
31.05.2020
Esta semana se ha sabido que Renault seguirá en la F1. La grave crisis causada por la pandemia de coronavirus ha situado en una posición extremadamente complicada a la compañía francesa. Se habla de severos recortes. De hecho, se han anunciado nada menos que 15.000 despidos en todo el mundo. Se pretende ahorrar 2.000 millones de euros. Así que hablar de Fernando Alonso como posible fichaje de Renault se hace raro. Y eso que es el equipo en el que logró sus dos títulos en F1 (2005 y 2006) y en el que ha estado en dos etapas (2002-2006 y 2008-2009). En esta difícil coyuntura, Marco Andrea Zecchi ha salido a emitir su veredicto sobre esa opción de la que tanto se está hablando este año. El que fuera team mánager de Ferrari (1989-1992) cree que podría sentar muy mal a l

Real Madrid Última llamada para el pasajero Gareth Bale
28.05.2020
La misma canción de cada verano, sólo que ahora sonando a finales de la primavera. "A ver si vuelve Bale...". Y sí, es lo que espera, ansía y sueña el Real Madrid, al que no le queda más remedio que rezar para que el galés recupere su mejor versión. Esta vez no le piden la regularidad de una temporada entera, sino un fogonazo de los suyos. Once buenos partidos con los que ayude a su equipo a pelear por LaLiga y que mejoren su imagen, deteriorada de cara a Zidane y a un buen sector de la afición. Necesita hacer méritos Bale y esperan en el Madrid que los haga, sobre todo ahora que se hacen a la idea de que el galés seguirá otro año más en el Real Madrid.

Jordan Henderson: Premier League trophy win without fans would be 'pretty strange'
27.05.2020
Playing at Anfield and lifting the Premier League trophy without any fans will be "pretty strange", says Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. The Reds were top of the table when the season was stopped and require just two wins from the last nine games for their first top-flight title since 1990. The league is hopeful of a June restart having been suspended since 13 March because of the coronavirus pandemic. Henderson said Liverpool fans "make a huge difference and we all know that". Football Daily podcast: Henderson on feeling safe, fitness and waiting for the title The England international told BBC Radio 5 Live: "Of course it would feel different because if you win any trophy and receive it without any fans there, it would be pretty strange.

Odion Ighalo: China return likely for on-loan Man Utd striker
26.05.2020
Striker Odion Ighalo looks set to return to China when his loan deal expires on 31 May, with Manchester United struggling to agree an extension with Shanghai Shenhua. The Nigerian, 30, was signed on a short-term loan deal in January as cover for striker Marcus Rashford, who had been ruled out by a back injury. However, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic means Ighalo's loan will end before the Premier League's intended June return date, by which time Rashford is also expected to be fit. United have already decided not to sign Ighalo permanently, but have not given up hope of getting a short extension to his loan. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like him for the rest of the season, given they are still in three competitions and could play up to 18 games in just over two months. A lifelong United fan who has scored four goals in eight appearances for the club,
