PEP SIGNS

Barça and his agent closed their first agreement yesterday after a long negotiation: a contract which lasts until 2011.


Guardiola will sign today and will be taken the photo with Rosell for the first time.

Hero Iniesta.

Cesc: Arsenal has to sell.

The Front: Sport (14.07.2010)

(HE) SIGNS FOR A YEAR

He extends today his contract with Barça.

The club announced officially the agreement with the coach, which will sign the extension this very noon with Rosell.

Guardiola, faithful to his ideas, wanted a short contract instead of compromising for more seasons.

Arsenal, obliged to sell. The London club and its fans can’t bear the pressure put on them both by Barça and the player itself.

That’s how the party ended. Iniesta, his girlfriend and the Cup were the stars of the party.

The “rookies” celebrated in Txistu, a famous mason placed in Madrid.

South Africa wants now the Olympic Games. Hard blow for Madrid, whose options become lower.

Quote of the day: Paul Hayward, The Guardian

Creativity, in this context, does not mean trickery, though there is some of that. It means orchestral passing. Spain exclude the opposition from the game. They have mastered the art of circulation and space manipulation. At Barcelona’s urging the nation’s team turned their backs on power and automation in favour of agility and self-expression.”

Paul Hayward writes in the UK newspaper The Guardian about Spain’s tactics and its endurance.
