‘Everything clouds over and goes dark’ – Iniesta on depression at Barcelona

first_imgIniesta began having sessions with psychologist Inma Puig, who said the Spaniard’s recovery owed much to those around him, including Guardiola.“Guardiola said this is the first time I’ve been in this situation as a coach,” said Puig. “I remember he said, ‘the most important thing now is Andres, the person not the player’.”“They’re people and this is a very human thing which affects millions of people around the world,” said Guardiola. “They have to know we are there for them.”“Guardiola tried to get him out of that bottomless pit he was in,” said Iniesta’s mother Maria.Iniesta came through Barcelona’s La Masia academy and went on to win nine La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues with the club.He also lifted the World Cup with Spain in 2010, after scoring the winning goal against the Netherlands in the final.Despite receiving a hero’s farewell from Barca, Iniesta hinted his relationship with the board influenced his decision to go to Japan.“People at the club never imagined I could leave,” Iniesta said. “It’s like everything, in relationships if you don’t discuss things at the right time there comes a time when there’s no way back.”Share on: WhatsApp Iniesta left Barcelona in 2018 after winning nine La Liga and four Champions League titles with the clubMadrid, Spain | AFP | Andres Iniesta has described his struggle with depression while playing for Barcelona, which his mother says was a “bottomless pit” that caused her 25-year-old son to ask to sleep with his parents.Iniesta recalls his experience with the illness in a Rakuten TV documentary, ‘Andres Iniesta – The Unexpected Hero’, which was released on Thursday and covers his move to Japanese side Vissel Kobe in 2018.After winning the Champions League under Pep Guardiola in 2009, Iniesta was battling injury and then hit by the death of his friend Dani Jarque, the 26-year-old Espanyol defender who suffered a heart attack.“The days pass and you realise you’re not improving, you don’t feel good, you’re not yourself. Everything clouds over and goes dark,” Iniesta said.On Jarque’s death, Iniesta added: “That was like a body blow, something powerful that knocked me down again and I was pretty low, clearly because I wasn’t very well.”Iniesta’s depression is described by those closest to him, including his mother Maria Lujan and father Jose Antonio.“I noticed he wasn’t well one night when we were sleeping downstairs and he came down and said, ‘mum can I sleep here with you?’” Maria said. “Then the world came down on my head.”Jose Antonio said: “Our 25 year-old son coming down at midnight and wanting to sleep with his parents means he can’t be well. He said, ‘I’m not well dad’. I said, ‘what’s wrong?’ ‘I don’t know, I don’t feel well.’”Iniesta’s father admitted he thought his son might have to take a break from football. “At one stage I thought he would have to stop because the most important thing was him,” said Jose Antonio.last_img read more

Watch: Red Star Belgrade stars celebrate CL qualification by riding in a tank through…

first_imgAdvertisement Serbian side Red Star Belgrade’s fans have welcomed a real battle tank which was used during the bloody war of Yugoslavia in the 90s at their home-ground. The club unveiled the decommissioned Soviet-made T-55 Yugoslav army tank on the eve of their Champions League playoffs against Swiss side Young Boys on Tuesday. The club website says that the tank symbolizes their slogan “Machine Has Started.” and the vehicle was parked near the northern stand at the stadium near which is reserved for the club’s ultras, called Delije, or roughly translated the tough boys.Advertisement While the fans refer to themselves as the Northern Army, have often used a tank symbol to show their support for their club during home games, but this daring stunt has triggered a strong reaction from neighbouring Croatia, which fought a war for independence from the Serb-led Yugoslavia. The Croatian media said the tank is “a clear provocation”, “a scandal,” and suggested that the European governing body of football, UEFA, must react. Various liberal Serbian organisations have called on authorities to remove the army vehicle and condemned the display as “glorification of war symbols.”Advertisement Watch the Red Star fans celebrate their victory over Young Boys riding the tank:Typically discreet celebration from the Red Star Belgrade players as they toasted qualification to the Champions League last night by riding through the streets on a tank. — MUNDIAL (@MundialMag) August 28, 2019The armored vehicle which has been painted in red and white the official color of the club, was purchased from a military waste site, club officials confirmed. But this could prove to be a “stupid decision” and could lead to serious UEFA punishments, some reports claim.The tank was put out in public, just a week after some masked assailants attacked two bars in Croatia as few ethnic Serbs in that country were watching Red Star’s first leg-match against Young Boys on television. The horrific incident which left at least five people injured and damages to the bar, has also triggered heated discussions among Croatian and Serbian politicians.[Video by TW/@MundialMag] Advertisementlast_img read more

Pedro Morilla: “We want to leave now. Our health is at stake”

first_img“The risk of the coronavirus reaching Spain is high” “We are still waiting for you to tell us how and when we are leaving.” They are the words of Pedro Morilla, one of the Spaniards that continues in Wuhan, the focus of a coronavirus that has already left 132 dead and more than 6,000 infected. The sports director of Wuhan Shangwen Three Lions, whose quarry surpassed that of First Division teams and was chosen only a few weeks ago as the best in China, faces the seventh day of recruitment in the hope of returning soon to Spain. “We want to leave now. Our health is at risk and we need to return home. When the situation returns to normal we will return to Wuhan to continue our work,” he discovers.Morilla says that both he and all the Spaniards around him – “nine coaches, the wife of a partner and two children of two years and three months respectively” – have followed all the indications of the Chinese government: “Society in general it is behaving in an exemplary way. we have been locked up for seven days in a private residential and we only left at first to buy food. “The Spanish says that the greatest moments of nervousness took place a week ago:” On the 22nd we trained normally and the closing of the city caught us by surprise. We found out on television and, for fear of the unknown, we went out to buy supplies. “Pedro Morilla is aware that, upon his return to Spain, he must undergo “the necessary medical checks”. “We want to return because, when our professional activity is paralyzed, we don’t paint anything here. But we don’t want to be a problem either. We demand that we demonstrate that we are well and do not carry the virus inside. We hope to be treated effectively, “adds the Sevillian, sorry for the situation in a city as” cheerful “as Wuhan.” It is positive that everyone is at home complying with government regulations so that the virus does not spread, but it’s a shame to see her like that, “he completes. Yes he got back to Spain Roberto Mickel, Director of Analysis of Shenzhen FC. The canary, already at home, lives worried about all the news that comes from China: “They tell me that the police had to go to my neighborhood for three people suspected of having the disease. People are hiding the first symptoms because they fear suffering a common cold and contracting the coronavirus in the hospital. “Roberto reveals that, to prevent the spread of the virus, the Shenzhen government will compensate with 39 euros daily to all people who contract the disease or are awaiting the results. “In my city there are already 80 cases, but a nurse friend tells me that there are many more of those who communicate,” he adds.Shenzhen is located in the Perl River Delta, a region the size of Extremadura that has a joint population that exceeds those of Canada and Australia together. More of 65 million people located in the path of all who yearn to reach Hong Kong, where free care is provided to those affected by the coronavirus. “It is dangerous because in the area there are many people who are passing through. If they have the virus and they make such trips they can leave a lot of infections along the way,” reveals Roberto Mickel. Spanish is “surprised” by how easy it was to reach Spain. “When you leave China they don’t make you any control. They seem to think ‘if you have the virus and want to go out salt, they will stop you somewhere else’. I escaped in the Emirates and when we arrived in Spain we did not pass any inspection. It is true that the flight did not come directly from China, but there are few who do not stop because it is much cheaper. I think the risk of getting here is very high, “he says.In football, China is paralyzed. The AFC announced today that the Chinese teams will play the first three days of the Asian Champions League away from home. “About the Super League, which should start on February 22, we still have no news. Maybe the games are played behind closed doors or the start of the championship is postponed. They will also restructure the Cup, which seems to reduce the number of participating teams “, reveals Roberto Mickel, concerned about the situation of many of his countrymen. “What worries me most is the situation of the many Spaniards who work in Chinese grassroots football. If the parents decide to withdraw their children, the clubs will have losses and they may be left without work,” he says.center_img Roberto Mickellast_img read more
