More news from Spanish Primera Division:

Real Mallorca takeover by Freddy Shepherd still on

Real Mallorca are still in talks with former Newcastle United chairman Freddy Shepherd about a possible takeover, the Spanish Primera Liga club said on Wednesday.

“At the moment there is only contact with Freddy Shepherd, the only party formally interested in buying the club,” Mallorca spokesman Hector Romero told Reuters.

Former Mallorca president Vicenc Grande put his 93 percent stake in the club up for sale after his Grupo Drac real estate company filed for insolvency in June.

Grande was replaced this month as president by an associate, Joaquin Garcia, who said he had until the end of January to find a new investor.

Romero said the club would not provide any financial details but a source close to the situation said in June that Mallorca were on sale for around 40 million euros ($56.7 million).

Shepherd, who lives in Mallorca for most of the year, was on holiday until Jan. 10 and unavailable for comment, said an official at Shepherd Offshore in Newcastle.

An outspoken and controversial figure during his spell with the English Premier League club, Shepherd said in late June he was in talks to buy Mallorca, currently struggling one place above the relegation zone in Spain’s top league.

Grande had been close to selling his stake to British businessman Paul Davidson for a reported 38 million euros but the deal fell through in November.

Mallorca shareholders are due to hold their annual meeting on Jan. 30 and Romero said a vote could be held then on a possible takeover.

If no agreement was reached with a buyer, shareholders would have to decide whether Garcia would continue as president or be replaced, he added.

Mallorca said on Tuesday they had signed Israeli goalkeeper Dudu Aouate from Deportivo Coruna as cover for injured first-choice keeper Miguel Angel Moya and Romero said this was proof the club was financially sound.

“It’s clear that the international economic situation makes the functioning of all companies more difficult and our club is no exception,” he said.

“But to meet the contractual rights of players you have to make financially solvent guarantees.”

Joaquin blames Ferrari for arriving late

Spanish Primera Division side Valencia has to begin Monday’s training session without their winger Joaquin, who arrived more than thirty minutes too late.

When Joaquin finally did arrive, he first went to apologize to manager Emery, who luckily for the player isn’t as strict on these matters as his predecessor Koeman. Following the apology, Joaquin had to undergo the jokes of his teammate.

While being late by itself isn’t that unique, the reason in this case certainly is. After the training session, Joaquin revealed that everything was to blame on his Ferrari, which wouldn’t start…

Joaquin joined Valencia in 2006 and quickly became one of the side’s key players. Before moving to ‘los ches’, the now 27-year-old spent six years at Real Betis.

Betis and Jose Mari part ways

Spanish Primera Division side Real Betis and its forward Jose Mari have agreed to terminate the player’s contract. This was announced on the club’s official website.

The striker joined the Sevillan side in the summer of 2007 and has been able to score only one goal in 21 league appearances. Reason for Betis to end their cooperation with the 30-year-old.

In the statement, Betis thanks Jose Mari for “his professional and personal behaviour, which has always been an example”.

“We are thankful for what he did during this time and wish him the best of luck in the future,” the club concludes.

Before joining Betis, Jose Mari represented arch rivals Sevilla, as well as Atletico de Madrid, AC Milan and Villarreal.

Iniesta set to return for Barca

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta, sidelined since the beginning of November with a muscle injury, has received the green light from doctors to return to action, the club said on Monday.

The 24-year-old Spanish international will join the squad to face Real Mallorca on Saturday.

Iniesta strained his right thigh muscle during the second half of Barcelona's 1-1 Champions League draw against Swiss side Basel at the Nou Camp on November 4.

Despite that his absence has not prevented the club from maintaining its place at the top of the Primera Liga where they lead Sevilla by 10 points after 16 matches.

Mallorca sign Israeli keeper Dudu Aouate

Spanish Primera Division side RCD Mallorca have secured the services of Israeli goalkeeper Dudu Aouate from Deportivo la Coruña.

The Galician side reportedly felt forced to sell the player due to financial troubles, and Mallorca needed little time to decide to sign the 31-year-old.

Aouate, who will have to compete with German Lux and Miguel Moya for a spot between the posts, arrived to Spain in 2003, joining Racing Santander from Maccabi Haifa. In 2006, the keeper made a move to Deportivo.

Mallorca are said to pay one million Euros for the player, a big contrast with the eight million offered by Valencia last summer. At the time, Deportivo didn’t plan to let go of the keeper and rejected the bid.

Now Mourinho wants success in Spanish Primera Division

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho said that he relishes the thought of winning the Spanish Primera Division.

He referred to the Spanish League as being one of the most prominent in the world.

Mourinho rose to prominence when he won the Portuguese League in consecutive seasons with Porto as well as the UEFA Champions League in his second year with the club. He followed that up with two consecutive English Premier League titles with Chelsea.

He is currently manager of Inter Milan and they are in pole position to with the Italian Serie A.

He told interviewers that if the offer of a club in Spain were to come his way he would enjoy the challenge.

Huntelaar or Diarra to miss out on Champions League

Spanish giants Real Madrid will probably have to leave either Klaas Jan Huntelaar or Lassana Diarra out of their Champions League selection for the knock-out stages.

According to UEFA regulations, each team is entitled to make three changes. However, only one of these three may be a player that previously played in the UEFA Cup for another club in the same season. Huntelaar has already done so for Ajax while Diarra represented Portsmouth in Europe’s other club tournament.

Spanish sportspaper Marca claims that Madrid weren’t aware of that fact, but the club deny that that is the case and hope to find a loophole that might allow both players to be registered for the tournament.

Currently placed fifth in the Primera Division, Real Madrid are practically forced to make several changes in the January transfer window. Huntelaar’s arrival was recently announced and Diarra’s deal followed this week. The club announced that more new signings could take place.

De Mul might leave Sevilla

Belgian right midfielder Tom de Mul is openenly considering to leave Spanish Primera Division side Sevilla and develop his career elsewhere.

De Mul left Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam to join Sevilla in 2007, but has made only nine league appearances since. This season, he played only 65 minutes divided over three games.

“I love the club and the city,” De Muld told Spanish agency Europa Press. “But maybe it is wise to leave because I have to play more. I’m 22 now and that’s an important age to play a lot, to improve as footballer.

“This year hasn’t been the way I wanted. I played more than last year but situation is still difficult. I don’t play a lot and I don’t know whether that will change. They tell me that they’re satisfied with me but Jesus Navas is first choice on my position.

“If a club pays what Sevilla asks for me, then it’s possible that I will leave. I want a good club. Maybe in Spain, maybe elsewhere. But it has to be a good club, otherwise I won’t leave Sevilla,” he concluded.

Bernd Schuster under more fire

Real Madrid fans are calling for the heads of President Ramon Calderon and Bernd Schuster.
This comes a mere six months after Real Madrid wontheir thirty-first Primera Division league title, more than any club in Spain.Sunday’s 3-4 defeat at home to Sevilla could have sounded the death knell of either or both president and coach.The club has slipped to fifth position in the league and they are a massive nine points behind archrivals Barcelona.

On Saturday, both clubs meet at the Nou Camp in Barcelona and if Barcelona were to win it will mean a twelve-point deficit.

Supporters are even angrier after today’s statement to the media in which Schuster stated that Real Madrid had very little chance of winning in Barcelona.

Fans are also unhappy with Schuster and the club’s policy of not encouraging young Spanish players at the club.

The biggest question being asked by Real Madrid fans is “Will Schuster be fired before or after the Barcelona match?”

Valencia close to bankruptcy - report

Spanish first division club Valencia is on the verge of bankruptcy, a Spanish sports newspaper said Tuesday.

The club must pay 50 million euros before December 31, and only a loan from the Bancaja bank can save it, Marca said on its Internet site.

The club was not immediately available for comment on the report.

Marca said that tense negotiations are underway between the bank and the club, Spanish champions in 2002 and 2004 and currently in third place in the Primera Liga.

Valencia, whose team includes Euro 2008 stars David Villa and David Silva, is building an ultra-modern 73,000-capacity new stadium which is to be finished for the 2009-2010 season.

Stuttgart sign young midfielder

German side VfB Stuttgart have secured the services of Under-19 international Timo Gebhart from TSV 1860 Munich.

The 19-year-old midfielder has been playing for TSV since 2004 and broke through to the first team last season. With 37 appearances and five goals, he attracted the interest of several Bundesliga sides.

“Timo has several offers from rival sides, but we are delighted he chose us,” said Stuttgart’s sporting director Horst Heldt.

Gebhart himself praised Stuttgart’s habit of giving young players a chance: “They have always trusted in young players, and I want to improve and be part of their first team.”

Stuttgart haven’t been able to convince this season and currently occupy tenth place in the Bundesliga. They did manage to reach the UEFA Cup round of 32, in which they are to face Zenit St Petersburg.

Zambrano wants to leave Schalke

Peruvian Carlos Zambrano no longer wants to stay at Bundesliga side Schalke 04. The defender revealed this in an interview with German newspaper Bild.

The talented 19-year-old came to Europe to join Schalke 04’s youth team from Academica Deportivo Cantalao in 2006 and conquered a spot in the first team two years later. Uptil now though, he hasn’t been given a chance to show his skills.

“I don’t feel good at Schalke. The trainer should know why I don’t play,” the Peruvian said, referring to manager Fred Rutten. “I lost desire in the last few months.”

Bild goes on to report that a large amount of clubs may be interested in signing the player, including Borussia Dortmund, River Plate and Alianza Lima.

Hoffenheim aim to get active on transfer market

German Bundesliga leaders TSG Hoffenheim aim to strengthen their squad during the January transfer window, according to club owner and billionaire Dietmar Hopp.

In an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, Hopp revealed that Hoffenheim might well sign one or more players this winter, on top of the recent acquisition of Valencia goalkeeper Timo Hildebrandt.

“Trainer Ralf Rangnick has already talked with a few players that we are thinking about,” said Hopp. “It would be great if they arrived this winter.”

Moreover, the owner stressed the importance of keeping key players at the club for next season: “We don’t have the illusion that this team will be together forever, but we do intend to keep it together for next year. We don’t want to let anybody go.”

Hoffenheim earned promotion to the Bundesliga last summer and currently lead Germany’s top flight ahead of Bayern Munich.

Atouba to quit Hamburg at season´s end

Cameroon international Thimotee Atouba is to quit Hamburg at the end of the season, according to the German club.

Atouba, currently recuperating from a ruptured Achilles tendon, turned down an extension to his contract which expires at the end of this season.

“He has not accepted our offer,” Hamburg general manager Dietmar Beiersdorfer told Bild newspaper. “We cannot do anything againsat that and our offer is now no longer standing.”

Atouba, 26, arrived in Hamburg from English Premiership club Tottenham and has played 81 Bundasliga matches.

Bayern must not take Lisbon lightly, insists Rummenigge

Bayern Munich avoided a European heavyweight in Friday's draw for the last 16 of the Champions League, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge warned against taking Sporting Lisbon lightly.

While the Bundesliga champions avoided the likes of current Champions League holders Manchester United, English giants Chelsea or Spain's Real Madrid, Rummenigge says they must make a good start in Portugal.

The first leg will be played at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon on 25 February next year with the return at Munich's Allianz Arena on 10 March 2009.

“I think it's a good draw for us, but I want to caution against underestimating this team,” Rummenigge warned.

“I'd like us to lay the groundwork for success in Lisbon.”

Although the Portuguese runners-up and domestic Cup winners represent a significant hurdle for Bayern, the men from Munich were spared a daunting tie against the likes of Inter Milan, Chelsea or Real.

“It could have been a lot harder for us,” Rummenigge acknowledged.

The last sixteen draw has thrown up no fewer than three England v Italy clashes, including the meeting between holders United and ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho's Inter.

“We'll take each round as it comes, but we're aiming to make the quarter-finals at the very least,” Rummenigge said.

But Rummenigge is refusing to dream about the German giants reaching the final at Rome's Olympic Stadium on May 27.

“It would be fantastic if we could make it to the semi-finals again, but I'm not even dreaming of the final just yet,” added Rummenigge.

The last team Bayern and Lisbon met in Europe's elite club competition was in the group phase two years ago.

Bayern won 1-0 in the Portuguese capital, with a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena.

Sporting currently lie fourth in their domestic league while Munich are second in the German table.

Bayern´s Oddo hit with three-match ban

Italian World Cup winner Massimo Oddo was handed a three-match ban on Wednesday by the German Football Federation (DFB) after the Bayern Munich defender was sent off against Stuttgart last weekend.

The 32-year-old was shown a straight red card for kicking Stuttgart midfielder Christian Traesch in the head in the 85th minute of Bayern's 2-2 draw with Stuttgart last weekend.

“The club and the player accepted the sanction,” said a DFB press release.

The Italian will now miss Bayern's Bundesliga games against Hamburg, Dortmund and Berlin, but will be able to contest the German Cup quarter-final against Stuttgart on January 27.

More from the Bundes Liga(I think for today theese two leagues is enough):

Veteran Galasek may return to Germany

Czech veteran Tomas Galasek is seriously considering a return to the German Bundesliga. Currently playing for Banik Ostrava in his home country, the midfielder expressed his interest in a move to Borussia Mönchengladbach. “My family are still living in Nürnberg, so as far as personal circumstances go it would be ideal to move to Borussia M’gladbach,” said the player in an interview with German newspaper Bild. Galasek’s contract with Banik lasts only one season, due to the player’s age. For the Czech side, the only way to earn a fee would be to allow a winter transfer to take place. The now 35-year-old began his career at Banik in 1991, but spent most of it in the Netherlands representing Willem II and Ajax respectively. From 2006, the player spent two seasons at Nürnberg.

Stuttgart can´t brook Babbel without coaching licence

German top flight club Stuttgart will have to drop former international Markus Babbel as coach at the end of the season as he does not have a pro coaching licence, the German league (DFL) authorities said on Tuesday. “An extension (allowing Babbel to continue beyond the summer) is ruled out,” said DFL official Holger Hieronymus. The DFL and the German Football Association both says coaches should have a professional licence to coach long term, though there is a fast-tracking system for them which several former internationals have used while on the way to obtaining qualifications. “It should go without saying that we guarantee professional quality in training (coaches) and that calls for a long-term commitment to take a course in football coaching,” explained former Stuttgart and Dortmund star Matthias Sammer, drawing a parallel with driving licences. Babbel, 36, will therefore have to stand down in the summer.

Draw with Schalke puts Hoffenheim back on top

Hoffenheim end the year as Bundesliga leaders after coming from behind to seal a 1-1 draw with nine-man Schalke 04 on Sunday as the village team from south-west Germany continue the fairytale. A superb second-half direct free-kick from midfielder Selim Teber cancelled out a first-half strike from Schalke's Gerald Asamoah to put Hoffenheim back on top in their first season in Germany's top flight. “At the end, we could still have won this game, but it was remarkable the way the team came back after being 1-0 down,” said Hoffenheim coach Ralf Rangnick after the last league game of the year. “I am pleased we have first place, but I would have been even more pleased if we had got two more points.” And goal-scorer Teber said his team will not rest on their laurels. “Now we know we can enjoy our holiday, but we want to do the same now in the second half of the season,” he said. Schalke had both midfielder Jermaine Jones and Orlando Engelaar sent off in the second half as tempers boiled over. Hoffenheim take over from Bayern Munich at the top of the table as the winter break starts. The match was a bad-tempered affair and Germany midfielder Jones picked up an early yellow card after just 23 minutes when he body checked Nigeria striker Chinedu Obasi. Hoffenheim's defence then had only themselves to blame when Schalke striker Halil Altintop slid a pass through to Asamoah and the ex-Germany forward smashed his shot past goalkeeper Daniel Haas on 40 minutes. Trouble started in earnest when Schalke's Brazilian midfielder Rafinha bundled Hoffeneim's Sejad Salihovic over the sidelines and picked up a yellow card on 52 minutes. Just four minutes later both Asamoah and midfielder Selim Teber both picked up yellows after a tussle. Jones allowed his suspect temper to get the better of him when he hacked down Hoffenheim substitute Luiz Gustavo Dias on 59 minutes and was shown his second yellow card and the automatic red. Jones was so incensed he had to be restrained by Schalke coaches as he remonstrated with the Hoffenheim bench on his way to the dressing room. But Hoffenheim then got the deserved equaliser when Teber curled in a superb free kick on 71 minutes. Schalke lost another man when Engelaar was shown his second yellow on 80 minutes for yet another heavy challenge. The result means Hoffenhein ended Bayern's temporary reign as league leaders after they drew 2-2 at Stuttgart when midfielder Sami Khedira hit an injury-time equaliser to seal the draw for the home side. Second-half goals by Bayern's Tim Borowski and Luca Toni had cancelled out Khedira's header at the end of the first-half, until the 21-year-old hit his second of the game with virtually the last kick of the match. Bayern were reduced to ten men when defender Massimo Oddo was shown a straight red for kicking midfielder Christian Traesch in the head with five minutes left. Third-placed Hertha Berlin kept the pressure on the leaders with a 4-0 win over Karlsruhe at Berlin's Olympic Stadium. Hamburg are fourth after their 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt as Croatia striker Mladen Petric sealed victory with a second-half header. Bayer Leverkusen are fifth after they were held 1-1 at home by struggling Energie Cottbus. Werder Bremen are up to eighth after a 2-1 win over VfL Wolfsburg as an own goal from Wolfsburg's Brazilian midfielder Josue gave the hosts three points. On Friday night, Borussia Dortmund moved up to sixth in the league after their 2-1 win over the league's bottom side Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Bayern frustrated by Stuttgart´s Khedira

Bayern Munich goalscorer Tim Borowski admitted the defending Bundesliga champions were bitterly frustrated at dropping two points in Saturday's 2-2 draw with VfB Stuttgart.

Bayern had been leading 2-1 away from home with time almost up as second-half goals from Italian World Cup winner Luca Toni, his sixth in consecutive league games, and Borowski cancelled out a first-half header from Stuttgart's Sami Khedira.
