Praise: a wild card for Zidane

first_imgThe name of David Alaba (24-6-1992, Vienna) has been playing for some time in Valdebebas offices, not in vain is he one of the defenders that the Real Madrid has it on his agenda. Now the Austrian ends his contract in 2021 with Bayern Munich and for the first time since he is a professional he plans to pack and change his air. Alaba has a market value, according to the reference website Transfermakrt, from 52 million euros, after the last revision. Amount that the white set would not pay but he knows that Bayern would be open to negotiate a transfer for a lower price. As in the past it already did with Toni Kroos and thus not let a footballer with a good lineup escape the following season for free. It should not be forgotten that the relationship between the two clubs is good. Now Odriozola and in past seasons, James Rodriguez, They have been transferred to the Bavarian team by the white entity. In the Real Madrid offices they are already probing the power plant market but prices continue to skyrocket and Zidane doesn’t ‘fall in love’ with any of those who sound. Upamecano (Leipzig) is a real option but sometimes it is irregular. Bayern also wants him and that benefits Madrid in the Alaba case. Given this situation, the coach sees with good eyes a small effort for the Austrian footballer. And is that the versatility of the defender has always liked the French. And more this season that Alaba has developed mainly as a central defender in Bayern’s reduced defense, before the constant losses of Lucas Hernández, Boateng and Sule. Function that has performed perfectly, thanks to its exquisite ball touch, long hitting and speed to cross, qualities that marry very well with the idiosyncrasy of the defenders of the taste of Zidane. Central, lateral, interior … versatility for FrenchNot only that, it draws Zidane’s attention. Its versatility is a plus, as is that of Nacho or Lucas Vázquez. Alaba has also played successfully both left-backas well as left steering wheel at Bayern Munich and in the Austrian team. Various profiles that would allow Zidane to ‘play’ with his position on the field and meet needs as the season progresses. Alaba is open to leaving the Bundesliga. You have seen that in the left-back has excelled the newly renovated until 2025, Alphonso Davies, and he knows that Lucas Hernández, once he is OK, has a fixed position in the starting lineup. It already rang for the white team when they were looking for a substitute for guarantees to Marcelo but Bayern, at that time, flatly refused to leave. Now it is different. They will not give you away but they will hear offers, if you do not renew. Alaba has played 28 games this season and has contributed to Bayern being undefeated in Europe. This year he has shown little incisive attack but goal passes are another of his specialties. Also, being a good penalty taker. In total, he has played 372 games with the Bayern shirt, in which he has scored 30 goals and distributed 48 assists. And he has never been expelled. Another point in his favor.So, Zidane knows that Alaba always complies and it is a very important option to take into account to reinforce the central position in the Real Madrid, although it will depend on the number with which Bayern is dropped. ‘Girlfriends’ are not going to miss it. Barcelona and Manchester City, the most interested, will be on the lookout.last_img read more

Web site hopes to be a guide for autism

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.A new Web site offers dozens of video clips of autistic kids contrasted with unaffected children’s behavior. Some of the side-by-side differences can make you gasp. Others are more subtle. The free site, debuting today, also defines and depicts “stimming,” “echolalia” and other confusing-sounding terms that describe autistic behavior. Stimming refers to repetitive, self-stimulating or soothing behavior including hand-flapping and rocking that autistic children sometimes do in reaction to light, sounds or excitement. Echolalia is echoing or repeating someone else’s words or phrases, sometimes out of context. The new site is sponsored by two nonprofit advocacy groups: Autism Speaks and First Signs. They hope the site will promote early diagnosis and treatment, which can help young children with autism lead more normal lives. Pediatrician Dr. Michael Wasserman cautioned that the site might lead some parents to needlessly fret about normal behavior variations and said they shouldn’t use it to try to diagnose their own kids. “Just as there’s a spectrum in autism … there’s a spectrum in normal development,” said Wasserman, with Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans. “Children don’t necessarily develop in a straight line.” By Lindsey Tanner THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – What’s so unusual about a baby fascinated with spinning a cup, or a toddler flapping his hands, or a preschooler walking on her toes? Parents and even doctors sometimes miss these red flags for autism, but a new online video “glossary” makes them startlingly clear. But Amy Wetherby, a Florida State University professor of communications disorders who helped create the site, noted that sometimes “parents are the first to be concerned and the doctors aren’t necessarily worried. This will help give them terms to take to the doctor and say, `I’m worried about it.” The Autism Speaks Web site was to be available starting today at www.autismspeaks.org. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
