A Espanyol-Barcelona with historic revolving doors

first_imgSomething similar happened behind gate 82 with Diego Orejuela, culé at age 15, with Sergio Gonzalez, door 83, who played alongside Roger Garcia in the Catalan cadet, with Albert Albesa, former Barça Atlètic at gate 90, or with the owner of 92, Toni Jiménez, who played two seasons in the youth culé.One more degree of link with Barcelona had when the guest of door 2 arrived at Espanyol, Cristóbal Parralo, who conquered the Wembley European Cup with the first and the Copa del Rey de Mestalla with the second. Also behind door 66 a Cayetano Ré for whom the parakeet club paid 600,000 pesetas to Barcelona. Almost the same thing happened to Toni Velamazan (gate 61) or Victor Sanchez (72). And not to say has the culé connection that they had Ivan of the Rock, door 76, or Sergio Garcia, 87, when they arrived at Espanyol. The unique case of CanitoMany others crossed the opposite path, with Barça as their last destination. This happened in the 10s of the last century with Santiago Massana (door 16), Martí Vantolrà (24), José Padrón (25). Special mention deserves José Cano ‘Canito’, which houses the stand that bears his name behind gate 43 and that, being a Barca player, celebrated in the Camp Nou somewhat of Espanyol that was reported on the video marker.Together with all of them, the doors of Cornellà hide cases of soccer players who one day were about to move to Barcelona. From the mythical Jose Parra (Gate 5), whom they tried to seduce after their outstanding role in the 1950 World Cup, to Juan Maria Amiano (70), going through Pepe Mauri (9), José María García (10), Toni Soldevilla (42), Antoni Fàbregas (49), Vicente Balaguer ‘Tasting’ (53), Joan Bartolí (58).Solsona and Marañón could go to BarçaLess known were the outputs that were about to undertake authentic parakeet symbols such as Dani Solsona (8), to whom the retention clause of the time was saved, and Rafa Marañón (11), which was informally transferred to Camp Nou in 1978 due to the economic urgencies of the Blue and Whites, which backed up the sale of Solsona to Valencia.Myths without a doorAs if all these names were few, there are cases of football myths that dazzled in Espanyol and Barça but did not get a door in Cornellà. This happened to Ladislao Kubala, Martial Pina or Javier Urruticoechea ‘Urruti’.And on the benches, an adventure that Abelardo now undertakes, they also successfully jumped from one club to another Juan José Nogués, Luis Aragones or, until just a few months ago, Joan Francesc Ferrer ‘Rubi’. It is the other derby, that of the doors of history. Eight seasons, 257 matches and 17 goals testify to the firm step of Abelardo Fernández as a soccer player for Barcelona. A striking past for a technician whose mission is to save Espanyol from relegation, with whom he debuted precisely against the Catalans. However, the parakeet story is full of icons that were despite having gone through the revolving door of Barcelona.Just look at the culé bench tonight, Ernesto Valverde, to run into the first. The ‘Txingurri’ has a door (89) to his name at the Cornellà-El Prat stadium, a distinction he shares with a few former Barça players. Door 1 indicates this, nothing less than the legendary Ricardo Zamora, with round trip ticket. OR Javier Marcet, tenant of door 52, who played with the amateur of the eternal rival. Even Raul Tamudo, door 23, was tested a year in Can Barça before arriving at the quarry.last_img read more
