Shame reaches the youth of grassroots football

Shame reaches the youth of grassroots football

We could not shut him up, except when it is who writes youth football coach. The fact, is so outrageous that cries out to heaven, and although we are not the only ones who have echoed the news because fortunately there are few media have echoed the news, We could not stop commenting on what seems to us the terrible wrong done to the lads alevin del Levante. If among professional teams had been bleeding, what has been done to these kids is just embarrassing.

Because for a child 10,11 y 12 years, age of fingerlings, Marketing topics and other import a snobby. For the types of tie and suit their pockets at the expense of football and who laugh at the fans with indecent schedules as a business day to 16:00 hours or at 23:00 hours, also they care about a snobby, but the feelings of these kids.




Promises League is played in Miami, an event that certainly is amazing for kids, coaches and parents. A kind of world of sub clubs 12 where the best of the category of the world come together, which they won its classification. That at least is the theory that the Spanish teams has not been fulfilled reality. But tell that to Mr. Thebes and tournament organizers, as the Foundation José Ramón de la Morena, known host of a morning sports program.

Come from Spain : Valencia, Celta, Atlético de Madrid, Barcelona, Villarreal, Sevilla and ….Real Madrid. So far everything seems ordinary but outside because Real Madrid, He did not qualify for the tournament. The team who won his seat to go to the tournament was the Levant, so the Levant was the alevin which must complete Spanish plazas in the tournament.

Fry del Levante are those who won the ticket to Miami on the field. Instead the Real Madrid has not classified.

And we say should because according to the rules that must be so. Rules were suddenly changed because he did not come either someone or because a team like Real Madrid tito Floren could not be left out of this too. The solution was quick, At the last minute the rules were changed and it was decided that in order for the tournament to enjoy more prestige, It had to invite relevant teams like Real Madrid at the cost of the square of a team that had won in the field, el Levante.

Dicho de otra manera, They had to go galactic and Levante lads as they had that status, as they are not Galacticos not been able to go to the tournament when they should have been. Marketing and these mamonadas (pardon the expression) They reach modern football and the lads, imported authentic…they already know, you complete the sentence.

A Thebes and Jose Ramon de la Morena children they care much tournament, it has become clear with the Levant.

The worst thing is that in certain sectarian media has taken the silent on this issue and also surprised the Levante, He has not filed a complaint Club. Only parents of juveniles sent a very sincere letter to the organization simply remained a dead letter because these people care about these things a pepper. Things of modern football, things that make this sport stinks especially when the base is already corrupted in this way.

This is the letter sent by the parents of the organizers box granota:




CARTA ABIERTA A LA LIGA PROMISES (LFP) Y LA FUNDACIÓN EL LARGUERO

Las familias de los futbolistas del Levante UD sub 12 hemos recibido con notable sorpresa y una profunda tristeza la decisión de la Liga de Fútbol Profesional (LFP) y la Fundación El Larguero de excluir al Levante UD del Torneo Internacional de Navidad, bautizado como Liga Promises, que se celebrará del 27 al 29 de diciembre de 2015 en Miami. La decisión tomada no puede estar más alejada de los valores de “esfuerzo, trabajo en equipo e ilusión en estado puro” que desean transmitir los organizadores del torneo, que cuenta con el respaldo de la Secretaría de Estado para el Deporte del Gobierno de España.

Vaya por delante nuestro reconocimiento a la Fundación El Larguero por su larga y provechosa dedicación al fútbol base. Gracias a sus torneos miles de niños han podido sentirse y soñar como futbolistas profesionales por un instante y han disfrutado de momentos inolvidables. Como los que vivieron nuestros hijos este pasado mes de junio en el torneo celebrado en Villarreal, y donde el Levante UD alevín logró una meritoria 5ª plaza, después de ser apeado en cuartos de final por el Villarreal en la tanda de penaltis. Precisamente este 5º puesto daba derecho, según se especifica en la página web de la Fundación, a participar en el torneo de Navidad. Pero este año, por una decisión que poco tiene que ver con lo deportivo y más con el negocio mediático, el equipo de nuestros hijos no ha sido invitado a participar en dicha competición internacional.

Las explicaciones que nos llegan de manera oficiosa, de confirmarse, sólo contribuyen a aumentar nuestra decepción con una organización que teníamos por modélica. Flaco favor hacemos a la educación de nuestros hijos si tenemos que explicarles que todo su esfuerzo y sacrificio no sirven nada ante los intereses comerciales. Que aquello que se ganaron en el césped se lo han arrebatado en los despachos porque, según nos dicen, los clubes galácticos dan mayores audiencias televisivas y réditos económicos, que parece ser que es de lo que se trata.

Desde aquí queremos reivindicar el trabajo de todas las escuelas de fútbol base de España y, en especial de aquellas, como la del Levante UD, que supliendo con enormes sacrificios sus limitados recursos logran superar a los grandes clubes en torneos nacionales e internacionales. Lástima que luego decisiones como las que hemos relatado acaben lanzando a los niños un mensaje equivocado.

Por ello, y con la esperanza de que reconsideren su postura de excluir al Levante UD alevín del torneo de Miami, los padres y madres del equipo granota aprovechan la ocasión para mandarles un afectuoso saludo,

  1. Hello, It is a shame that these things happen, but worst of all is that I do not wonder.

    Por otro lado, to read this article I had to close up 6 pop up advertising (I read from the mobile), with no less than reading would be less frustrating. Greetings

  2. I feel terrible what they have done to the U-12 boys from the Levant,but even ruin as always being the most famous team of the plateau,with the complacency of Thebes,Florentino and parents of children classified what is more indecent seems to me the attitude of the president of the Real Madrid Levante has not complained or said anything about this matter please leave Levante Sr.Catalan once you will ruin,It's almost second and leave him worse than found, defends his team for working because it goes in the salary,thank you very much and happy new year

  3. That it's going to Spain, It is given more importance to the “first name” that the value of people.
    And so we want our kids to learn??
    I am surprised that this was not published in newspapers or on television issued.
