Live his 12 derby, sixth in Nervin, where he has not played since 2004
Joaqun Caparrspage has already passed. He did it since the day I metthe chronic disease that suffers (leukemia). They told him he could do normal life and that he would do it. His life is football and Sevilla. And for thatyou could see him on Monday even more teasing than usual, as if confirming with facts those words that he pronounced after the victory in Valladolid, in which he announced his illness, at the same time asditched the issue for the future. That red blood, mixed with white because of the leukemia,it has become again only red. More intense color if possible. Carmes. That which "boils" the Utrera, even more whena derby is looming in Nervin.
Whyfor Caparrs is not that it is a special match to face the eternal rival, it is the match. He has always felt that way. Raised in the duality of the Andalusian capital, Caparrs understands this duel against Betis from the feeling and responsibility. And since, also, the tranquility ofhave put on the coach suit in more than a ten derbys throughout his career. The motivational manual carries it in your brain. It will animate its players and bite them.Remind them of the 3-5 of the past year and the later joke at the expense of sevillismo. All that is in your hand to convey that the Snchez-Pizjun can not fly the three points even remotely. They are warned.
And everything comes after the announcement of Caparrs on Sunday.The template did not know the news. He did it after the game, in the locker room, a few minutes before doing it publicly. For him it was more important to add victory than to talk about his personal situation. The players saw their boss yesterday with a broad smile.The nine points in four games have raised the morale of the troop. The team is dead with the coach and seems to have regained that lost vitality. Caparrs peda "intensity" before "a very important week." Maximum concentration. Nobody gets out of the rails right now.
Of the 804 games accumulated by Joaqun Caparrs as coach, starting in the depths of the Second B -and in total 503 in the First-,23 of them have been against Betis. He has even faced Sevilla on more occasions (28). And it was, in part, in duelsbefore the eternal rival where that image of temperamental technician was built, that puts all the soccer elements in their favor to achieve success in these compromised confrontations.
A few matches that started in Segunda, the year in which they ended up ascending the two. To later seein First for four seasons consecutively. Three victories - two of them in Benito Villamarn -, six draws anda defeat, shortly before leaving Seville, also in bizarre fiefdom and who put his rival on Saturday with bloodshot eyes to unseat the Nervin squad from the Champions League, something that ends up achieving.That thorn was not removed Caparrs. An hurts.
Fate wantedthe past year, when he was already practically retired and negotiating his return to the club of his loves in a position with less relevance than he got at the end,had to sit four days on the bench, one of them at the Villamarn. Once again at the Betis stadium. Ah, the purer Caparrs was seen. Who lives the derbies to the maximum. He even had to apologize for an ugly gesture from the bus.
What I'm sure I did not think anymore, once it breaks off the benches, is thatthat capricious destiny was going to put another derby ahead. In his stadium. With its people. Witha Snchez-Pizjun who returns to surrender to the man who took him from the welland that, it returns and it revolves, until the foundations of a team that seemed doomed less than a month ago.
The Nervous Coliseum will welcome you like a hero. Nothing to do with his leukemia, but with the fact of seeing the lover of the derbies again in his most desired appointment.His cheeks already have a redness tone. The blood is boiling. And red. Red Red.
