The president Ronaldo: revolution in Valladolid, in the office in Serrano and pumpkins to brazilian politics
When he was 14 years old, Jordi Masip stepped in Valladolid for the first time in his life to play a football tournament for children. By then, I was playing as defense in the Mercantile of Sabadell, his hometown. But, things happen, none of the goalkeepers of his team was able to go to the championship and his coach was forced to improvise. He explained it in The North of Castile: "I got me and gave me the award for best goalkeeper. The final was settled on penalties and we won it." He never removed his gloves.
a Decade and a half later, Masip is, interestingly, the goalkeeper of Real Valladolid. And not a goalkeeper either, but the second less goleado of the League, only behind Oblak, the winner of the last three Zamoras. He has only conceded seven goals in 10 games, with stellar performances that allow the Pucela to be sixth in the standings, two points ahead of Real Madrid, his opponent this afternoon.
A meeting is always special for any player, but even more so for Masip, fc barcelona from the cradle and footballer of Barcelona's first team for three seasons. Do not you remember? Not extrañen, it is normal. In those three campaigns as barca (between 2014 and 2017), Masip played only four matches, three of Cup in first rounds and one of the League, the last of the season 2014/15, with Barca already champions. In total only amounted to 29 calls, always in the shadow of Ter Stegen, Bravo and Cillessen.
Three years lost, you might think. But the protagonist disagrees: "Training in the first team of Barça improvements a lot, you learn day-to-day with the best in the world, is a master journal. I have been where I wanted: the best team in the world".
In fact, she was ready to renew for one more season, but the departure of Luis Enrique on the bench azulgrana did you choose to pursue life outside of the Camp Nou. In the summer of 2017, booked by the Valladolid, a risky bet, as the club blanquivioleta had just arrived also Isaac Becerra zamora from Second the previous season.
The eternal third goalkeeper of Barca, however, won the post from the first day. He played in all 42 matches of the Second and four in the promotion of ascent. And he did it with two coaches is different, first with Luis César Sampedro and then with Sergio Gonzalez. Today, at 29 years old, enjoys his best moment as a professional in the Valladolid Ronaldo. And, heart-barça, would like nothing more than refrendarlo with a victory at the Bernabeu.
