Brahim’s Blank Year

first_imgBrahim Díaz was one of the great victims of Real Madrid’s elimination cup. This competition was one of the main reasons given by the person from Malaga for not accepting an assignment during the past winter market. He was convinced that the Cup would serve as an opportunity to shine and also earn minutes in the rest of competitions.Brahim’s predictions were fulfilled, since 76% of the minutes he has played have been in the Cup (130 ’of 170 total). Despite this, he also had to earn the title: in the first two games (Unionistas and Zaragoza) he was a substitute. His good performances earned him his presence in the eleven against Real Sociedad, where he distributed an assist but the team was eliminated. And at that juncture, the white quarantine of the coronavirus arrived, which slows it down even more and also adds competition: Marco Asensio was close to reappearing after his serious knee injury. The Balearic Islands occupies the same demarcation as Brahim and his return, which would now be at an earlier stage of the season (provided the course ends, which is not clear at the moment), closes the door even more on the young footballer who arrived in January. 2019 from Manchester City. With only 170 minutes played (in which he has scored a goal and given an assist) Brahim had practically said goodbye to one of his goals for the season: the Olympics. In fact, it has not even entered any of De la Fuente’s lists yet in the new cycle of the Sub-21 (the one born from 1998). Brahim is from 1999 and was called to be one of the stars, but he has not yet played.FutureIn the summer, Madrid will insist once again that they accept a loan to gain experience. At the club they have high hopes for him, they are convinced that he will be an important footballer at the Bernabéu for many years. But you must follow the path of others like Achraf, Odegaard or Reguilón. He needs minutes in some demanding team to return Madrid in one or two years and fight for a place in the starting lineup. That hard defeat against those of Imanol Alguacil at the Bernabéu (3-4) alighted Madrid from the Cup and ended with the illusions of Brahim, who returned to ostracism. Since then, the white team has played six games (five in the League and one in the Champions League) and the malagueño was out of the call in all. Not even Hazard’s injuries have given him a chance.last_img read more

Kids learn disaster aid

first_imgLANCASTER — About 40 fourth-graders from Joshua and Monte Vista schools on Friday learned the basics of first aid, triage and rescue techniques as part of a disaster-preparedness program. The Lancaster School District has paired with San Bernardino County Fire Capt. Wayne Bennett to provide the training to elementary school-age children at all district schools. “It was pretty good. It was cool,” Joshua fourth-grader Patrick Chavez said. “We got to lift a dummy, Dead Fred, from under a cabinet.” Bennett provides the training through his company, Survival Skills, and is being paid $6,750 by the district for this school year. “If we target kids at this age to grasp the concepts, they can carry it through their whole life,” said Bennett, a 23-year Fire Department veteran. The students learned basic first aid, how to use a stretcher to transport the injured and how to use a wedge and blocks to lift heavy objects off people. “They learn details on how to do proper duck, cover and hold and how to take care of themselves, and how to prepare rooms at home as well as in school as far as earthquake safety measures,” Assistant Superintendent Mick McClatchey said. “It’s going to benefit the whole school,” said Assistant Principal Katrina Marrufo, assistant principal at 1,100-student Joshua School. “If we do have some kind of emergency situation, the more people we have trained and prepared, the better off we’ll be in the long run. To have students have responsibility and be able to help us is going to be great.” The training was the idea of McClatchey, who at his previous school district in Victor Valley worked with Bennett to set up a similar program. “Kids are great learners. Their attention span is great for this training, where it’s hands-on,” McClatchey said. — Karen Maeshiro, (661) [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
