A BOLA - The entrepreneur was in Seixal in negotiations with Nzonzi (Benfica)

Benfica continue to try to reach an understanding that will allow them to strike a deal with Steven Nzonzi, 32, a French midfielder whose pass belongs to Roma. And yesterday important steps were taken in this direction during a meeting in Seixal with the player’s manager.

The agent reviewed the Eagles’ offer in detail, and, as A BOLA found out, the deal, although not closed, was close to completion.

This is the same day that the Reds learned that they had one less competitor in the race for the athlete: Rennes, where Nzonzi played last season (39 games), left the stage. According to L’Equipe, Rennes decided not to sign a final contract with the midfielder, whom Roma had rented for a season and a half without a purchase option. The French emblem, ranked sixth in the last league, was still looking into negotiating with the hyalorrossi. But in the meantime, he gave up.

As such, Benfica are one of the emblems most interested in having the 2018 France midfielder world champion. There are more candidates and ultimately it will be up to the player to decide where to pursue their career. An agent’s visit to Seixal can be a good sign in favor of the eagles. Benfica is trying to convince the athlete and is ready to make financial efforts to receive an average salary of about 3 million euros per year.

BALL - "Penalties over Taremi were well marked" (Vitoria de Guimarães)

Vitoria de Guimarães goalkeeper Bruno Varela was interviewed by Canal 11 about the two penalties awarded against Porto at D. Afonso Henriquez” in the 29th round of the League on April 10, a game that the “Dragons” won 1-0, Taremi’s goal, from the 11-meter mark, in the 36th minute – the Iranian will not miss the second penalty, in the 63rd minute.

The 27-year-old, who spent a second consecutive season at Guimarães and spent most of his training at Benfica, thinks João Pinheiro’s bid was balanced.

“I always analyze games when I get home. Then, on the first day, I do an analysis with the goalkeeping coach. In this move (first penalty), we talked about it; I was not in the best position. I hoped that Taremi would not be able to control the ball, but he did. Then I still had time to return to the goal, in the end I didn’t return, I was halfway, and it was at the halfway point that I decided to leave the goal. The first thing I thought was that I would get to the ball first, but halfway through I regretted it. It was discussed a lot, but to be honest, if my team’s striker was fouled, it would be a penalty for me. I make a decision. He did his job, I should not have approached it like that, ”he admitted.

In the second half, the blue-and-white striker was again awarded a penalty, but missed.

“If it was a striker from my team, like Oscar Estupinan or Bruno Duarte, I would take the penalty. You shouldn’t be hypocrites. He was a “rat”, as they say. Taremi does it very well… I was frustrated myself, because I studied it and saw several similar moves in his performance. But in the game we make decisions. When he touched the ball, I was already raising my hands, because I knew that he would hit me on the knee. He was looking for contact, but I accept the punishment, ”he said.

Goalkeeper V. Guimarães commented in an interview with Canal 11 on two controversial moves in the match of the 29th round of the championship.

Bruno Varela, goalkeeper “V. Guimarães”, was interviewed by Canal 11 on Wednesday evening and spoke about two penalties in the game against Porto at the home of the Minho club on the 29th round of the championship. The goalkeeper thinks the bets were well thought out.

“I always analyze games as soon as I get home. Then, on the first day, I do an analysis with the goalkeeping coach. [ primeiro penálti], that’s what we talked about between him and me, I was not in the best position. I was hoping Taremi wouldn’t dominate the ball, but he does. Then I had time to return to the goal, in the end I did not return, I was halfway, and it was halfway that I decided to leave. The first thing I thought was that I would get there first, but halfway through I regretted it. There was a lot of talk about it, but to be honest, if my striker was fouled, it would be a penalty for me. I accept punishment. He did his job, I shouldn’t have approached it that way,” he said.

Taremi converted the maximum penalty and scored the only goal of the game. In the second half, a penalty kick was awarded again, but missed. “If it was my striker, Oscar [Estupiñán] or Bruno [Duarte]I would take the penalty. There is no point in being hypocritical. He was a mouse, as we say. He does it very well. I myself was upset because I studied it and saw several Taremi plays. But there are decisions in the game that we have to make. When he touched the ball, I was already raising my hands, because I knew that he would hit me on the knee. He looked too tough, but I take the penalty.”

Nuno Diaz was a mirror of contentment. The lion coach was very pleased with the performance of his charges in the match against Candozo with a score of 9: 2, which gave Sporting a ticket to the semi-finals of the Portuguese Cup.

“We played a great game. The players were incredibly serious and showed great seriousness in doing everything well. They can be congratulated on the exhibition and how they managed to increase the result.”

In anticipation of the meeting with Quinta dos Lombos scheduled for 17:00 this Thursday, also at the Multiusos de Sines, where Final Eight Nuno Dias emphasized that with the same attitude as today, Sporting will be closer to victory: “We will approach the duel with Quinta dos Lombos with the same seriousness with which we approached today’s game. If we are at our level, as we have shown for most of the season, I think we will reach the final, which is another of our goals.”

Recall that Sporting is the owner of the trophy after defeating Braga (7:1) in the final of the 2019/2020 season. Last season (2020/2021) the Portuguese Cup was not awarded as the competition was interrupted and then canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
