Goalie Training Opportunities
GOALIEDEV offers four distinct goalie training opportunities:
> PRIVATE SESSIONS
> GOALIE CAMPS & CLINICS
> IN-GAME ANALYSIS
Private & semi-private goalie training is offered in rink 9 (the mini-rink) and rink 10 (small rink) at New England Sports Center located in Marlboro, MA. Private lessons provide goaltenders the opportunity to schedule private goalie training to work on specific areas of their game. Private lessons are also used to work on areas of a goaltender’s development identifed in evaluation sessions. Unlike other programs, private lessons are tailored to each goaltender and are limited to two goalies maximizing the benefits of each session (more…)
GOALIE CAMPS & CLINICS
Most of our goalie camps & clinics take place during the summer or during holiday breaks during the season at various locations across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Florida. Camps\clinics are a great way to maximize your goalie training in a structured environment that utilizes the GOALIEDEV Methodology. Camps and clinics provide excellent training opportunities for goalies of all ages and abilities (more…)
Youth hockey organizations, high schools, prep schools, junior teams, colleges as well as individual goalies and teams can contract us to provide their goalies with premiere goaltender training during their regularly scheduled practice time. Having a GOALIEDEV staff member at practice utilizing the GOALIEDEV Method is a great way to get out of the mini rink and work on angle and other training that is difficult to do in the mini rink (more…)
Skills learned in training and practice need to be applied in games for a goaltender to be successful. In-game analysis helps to identify what skills are being applied well during a game and areas for improvement where extra training reps in a private or semi-private session could help improve a skill or reinforce proper technique. GOALIEDEV will take the in-game analysis and use it to create a customized training program that will make a goalie better. Not to mention, you’ll have some pretty good video of the game (more…)

Schedule a Session
Trained by Ron Mays: Spencer Martin, Ben Blacker and Chris Festarini
During each training session, we show the goalie how to execute the skills every goalie requires to be successful, when to use each skill in a game situation and how to respond to the various tactical situations goalies face in a game. All of this is accomplished in a positive atmosphere where the goalie is challenged to become the best goalie they are capable of becoming.
Trained by Ron Mays: Drew Fielding and Ben Blacker
Perhaps most importantly, goalies who train with Adrian Volpe and Ron Mays gain tremendous confidence in their ability to keep the puck out of their net due to the skills and knowledge they acquire during training sessions. These goalies enter games expecting to be successful because of the tools they have developed, and usually are, as a result.

“The goaltending position in hockey is one of the most important in sports. If a goalie does not perform well, their team is very likely to lose no matter how well they play. It is also one of the most unique positions and is constantly evolving, and each individual has their own style of play. I strive to tailor my coaching to the individual, instead of hoping to mold a cookie-cutter goalie. Each style has benefits and negatives, and my job is to work with each goalie on advancing their own style and making them feel more comfortable in the crease. ”

“LAND OF LAKES” – THE FORGE OF WORLD HOCKEY STAFF.
In the afternoon, goalkeeping coach Aki Naikki was driving home after his visit to Iisalmi, a small Finnish town with a population of about 22,000. It is home to Iisalmen Peli-Karhut, who plays in Mestis, the second Finnish division. Nike traveled to Iisalmi to help one of the club’s teams with training and to work with a new coach.
Later that day, Tommy Niemela, who coaches the Finnish U-18 team, made a two-hour journey from Turku to his home in Helsinki.He spent the evening watching the U-20 teams play, assessing the players, taking notes, and then sharing his thoughts with the two coaches.
As coaches working for the Finnish Ice Hockey Association (FIHA), they spend long hours traveling all over the country, checking teams, helping coaches and players. This is all part of their job.
Finland has established itself internationally as a factory for the production of elite goalkeepers. With a population of 5.5 million, there are about 76,000 registered players, and the training of goalkeepers is of particular importance.
Seven Finns are currently defending the goals of the NHL teams, and this success inspires many children to take this position. The boys want to be the next Tuuka Rask, Pekka Rinne [and to defend the gates of Dinamo Minsk, of course], Kari Lehtonen, and the girls, Noora Ryatu, the first Finnish woman to play professionally in Mestis.
There are eight Finnish goalkeepers in the NHL in the 2018/19 season. Lehtonen – minus, Rask, Rinne – stayed, and also – Sergei Bobrovsky’s replacement Joonas Corpisalo (of course, Columbus Blue Jackets), former SKA goalkeeper Mikko Koskinen (Edmonton Oilers), Rinne’s replacement for Nashville Predators, Juuuse Saros Antti Niemi (in the 2018/19 season – Montreal Canadies, but from the new season we will see in the KHL in the colors of Jokerit), Antti Raanta (Arizona Coyotes) and an unknown goalkeeper with a typical Finnish name and surname – Christopher Gibson (formally – AHLovets, plays at the gate of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but played two games in the NHL for the New York Islanders).
In Finland, children who play ice hockey do not specialize in specific positions (goalkeeper, defender, striker) before they turn ten, so they all play at the goal in turn.
As in most European countries, the hockey development system in Finland is based on a club model. The club provides goalkeeper equipment, so the parents of novice hockey players do not experience financial difficulties in this matter. Thus, every beginning goalkeeper from the youngest age group receives basic goalkeeper training from a goalkeeper coach.The club also runs a couple of goalkeeper workouts every week where players can improve their skills with the help of their coaches.
– For example, if a club has two training sessions a week for goalkeepers, the first will be for the younger kids ages 8-12 or 13, and the other for the older players, said Nike, who is also the coach of the youth team goalkeepers. Finland [from next season will coach Tappara’s goalkeepers in the Finnish top division].
– This way, players always get feedback even at their youngest age, and this is the best there is in our system.
One of the keys to successful goalkeeper training in Finland is the fact that every team has goalkeeping coaches – both large and small clubs – that is, at every level. In addition to coaches at the club level, Finland is divided into eight regions, each of which has FIHA-appointed goalkeeper coaches who visit the teams, run coaching courses and help coach goalkeepers.In addition, FIHA has two full-time goalkeeper development specialists who set specific goals for themselves each season.
Nike, which is one of these two professionals, works with the 8-13 age group as well as goalkeepers at a professional level. So even the smallest goalkeepers in Finland receive the same attention as professional goal guards.
There is constant interaction between national coaches such as Nike and Niemela and local coaches, there are always opportunities for club coaches and players to develop, ask for help or get new ideas. All visits to regional and national instructors are free. Usually only courses are paid, but in most cases clubs pay for their coaches.
The same model exists for outfield players, except there are even more coaches and resources. In 2013, FIHA began providing the top clubs in Finland with an annual subsidy to hire skill coaches specifically for children between the ages of 10 and 14 – the best time for such development.
Large regions have two regional trainers rather than one, and they all work full-time at FIHA expense.Back in 2009, FIHA decreed that all coaches for the national team would be paid as full-time employees and work full time. This means that professionals like Niemela are busy developing players, traveling across the country and visiting clubs, rather than just focusing on their club or age group.
– My job as coach of the U-18 national team is for the coaches of the U-20 teams in the clubs to understand the international level requirements of how a player should play, therefore, in fact, I train more coaches than players, explains Niemela . ..
This kind of change takes years if not decades, but early omens with the likes of Patrick Laine, Alexander Barkov, Teuvo Teravainen, Sebastian Aho and Rasmus Ristolainen were promising.
23 Finns were selected in the 2017 NHL Draft, including Miro Heiskanen, third pick, selected by the Dallas Stars. That number was well over the 15 players drafted a year earlier, when the Winnipeg Jets took Laine second.
The fact that Finland is a relatively small country means that FIHA coaches can travel across the country and bring clear ideas and plans for the development of hockey to each club.
Nike estimates he visits all teams in Finland a total of 70 times a year (about three times each). When he goes to the club, all the goalkeeping coaches from the main team, as well as the coaches of the smaller teams in the region, come together to receive training, reach rapport and ask questions.
Nike says that because the Finns have always successfully taught the technical aspects of the game – puck control, active hand play and good movement – they are trying to change their coaching system towards modern play.
“What we have to do in Finland is to try to educate our coaches more about how to play hockey effectively from the goalkeeper’s point of view,” said Naikki. – It’s about positioning and reading the game, the ability to make the right decisions. So if we can build the above at a good level in associations and clubs, then in the future we will have great goalkeepers.
In the eastern Finnish city of Joensuu, where Miro Aaltonen grew up, the Mehtimaki Ice Palace is an important center for the city.Here is the Jokipojat ice hockey club, which plays Mestis. Even now, as the 24-year-old Toronto Marlies striker heads home, he plans to go ice skating with the local kids because he remembers what it was like to be a little kid with big dreams.
If someone from Joensuu, which has a population of 75,000, receives a call from the Toronto Maple Leafs NHL team, it will be an important event for the city.
“It’s not such a big city and I think they know me,” Aaltonen said a little shyly.- It’s fun to play with children, I really like it. I want them to have some fun.
In Finland, fun is paramount to retaining hockey players because Finns cannot afford to lose any of their 39,000 younger players. There are too many other options for both parents and children to waste their time and money. And like every other hockey nation in the world, money has become a problem in Finland.
“If I had a kid who played hockey as a goalkeeper, I wouldn’t know how to pay for it,” Nike said.
– These are so expensive and they are growing so fast that you have to buy new equipment almost every year. It’s a shame, but we also tried to create some systems for this … our goal is to make sure that hockey is for everyone, not just for rich people.
Equipment is not much cheaper for field players either. And this is not to mention the membership fees that all players must pay in the club.
FIHA currently has a fund that provides approximately $ 1.6 million to families that do not have the funding for hockey.Teams apply for grants on behalf of children in need, and FIHA gives clubs money to pay for things like fees and equipment. In addition, many former team stars who continue to play professional hockey have created scholarships for low-income children at these clubs.
Some of the top SM-Liiga teams also try to help when they can. For example, Aaltonen’s former club, Karpät Oulu, purchased many goalkeeper kits throughout the year and distributed them to small clubs in northern Finland.Boston Bruins star Tuuka Rask also donated gear to his former club team SaPKo in his hometown of Savonlinna.
But relying on the generosity of others does not mean solving a big global problem.
There is currently no large aftermarket for things like private training, skating lessons or private hockey schools. For the most part, club teams fill this gap by offering skill development summer camps at an additional cost. While this may not be as financially burdensome as it is in North America, it is becoming a problem for Finns.
“If one club costs 200 euros and you need 10-15 clubs a year, that is quite a lot of money – plus ice time, plus club fees – we have to keep costs down that much,” Niemela said.
The hockey mindset has always been key to developing good goalkeepers. In Finland, this is the focus everywhere. Niemela believes that one of the most important changes has occurred in the last decade as coaches began to develop mental qualities – self-confidence, a sense of responsibility and an optimal level of emotion – like any other ice skills among players over 13 years old.
“When you start learning all this at about 12 or 13 years old, you can master them when you are 23 or 24 years old,” Niemela said.
It was the development of the optimal level of emotion at a young age that he believes that it was the development of the optimal level of emotion at a young age that gave the Finnish players an international advantage. So what does this mean?
Niemela uses the graph as an example. At one end there is complete relaxation, at the other end there is anxiety and stress. We all have different performance triggers, so one player can play better when he is calm, and the other only plays better when he is nervous.Therefore, even if the optimal level of emotionality is very individual for everyone, there are still techniques – using breathing exercises, self-talk, or music – that can be used to prepare for maximum performance.
“We have to learn this from ourselves,” Niemela said. – We tried to teach this to our young guys, as well as our adult players, so that they start thinking after the games – when they played good or bad, how did they feel the day before, during the match?
This is all part of empowering players to better understand themselves as a person and not just as an athlete.This means building a strong level of trust between players and coaches so that conversations about emotions can take place in a safe and constructive environment. Encouraging such openness has been a challenge for the normally reserved Finns, but attitudes are changing.
– In the past in Finland, the players were closed, and did not talk about their emotions, – said Naikki. “But now I think there is a change and we are getting better and better at it.
According to Niemela, coaches are still leaders, but they are also the ones who really communicate with the players and value their input.He noticed a big shift in coaching culture in Finland (and Sweden) compared to North America, where coaches are “big authorities you can’t doubt about.”
“In North America, you call them Coach Babcock or Coach Kennyville, while here I am just Tommy for my players,” Niemela said. – I am just a person for them, I am not an authority figure. I am an assistant. The job of a coach is to help players fulfill their dreams, and if I can’t communicate honestly with my players, I can never help them reach their peak.
– Of course, there should always be rules and values, and the coach should lead the process, but not through fear or excessive respect. When there is too much respect or wrong respect, the player is afraid to say how he really feels, and when that happens, he will never reach his peak.
This may seem strange to us.
– Does this sound too soft? Niemela asked with a laugh. – I mean, there should be strict rules, and we also try to be harsh with our players, but the philosophy should be like that.
In Finland, the culture of coaching comes from the army and probably the same exists in North America, where you try to move a large number of people in one direction as quickly and efficiently as possible … Now our youth understands the world better, so we must find new ways to motivate them.
Aaltonen said he definitely noticed a change in his relationship before coming to North America this season.In his experience, especially during his stay in Carpathian-Oulu, coaches were able to build an open dialogue and trust the players.
– I think it will be better, – said Aaltonen. – And if you can trust the coach, then the coach can trust you. You will always give the best you can. But we still play hockey.
It also means focusing on getting the players to think for themselves – even if that means they will fail and make mistakes – allowing them to get creative while still playing the system.This creates a lot of discussions between the player and the coach, unlike hockey players who are simply told what to do and where to go.
“We want them to think a lot about how they play,” said Nike. – We don’t want them to be robots. This is an important thing, and this is what we talk about a lot – how do we train? The main thing is always to make them have fun, because we want them to have a positive interaction in practice, so that they can be themselves and enjoy it.
Niemela, who played as a goalkeeper in Europe, agrees.
– All of our team’s training has been designed so that players are passive chess pawns that we move from one place to another. This is a big challenge we face in our coaching culture. We have to admit that we are not just puppeteers pulling strings.
90,000 Former Rostov goalkeeper Dejan Radic: interview, video of injury, Headbutt, Nikolic – April 23, 2021
10 years ago, the Russian championship match with Terek cut off the career of Rostov goalkeeper Dejan Radic.A collision with the Grozny striker Zaur Sadaev led to a ruptured kidney, which was not even detected immediately – at the time of the operation, the count (and this is not a figure of speech, but reality) was going on for minutes.
Dejan never returned to the pitch (he will tell you why in an interview), but now, a decade later, Radic’s outward appearance cannot be said at all that he faced such serious health problems. Fit athletic man in his prime. The Russian language is still at the same ideal level.
Radic came to Sport24 editorial office with his son: “Do you also play football?” – “Yes, goalkeeper.”
“He is only 13 years old, and he is almost as tall as me,” laughs Acts. I now have four children: three sons and a daughter. He took the elder to Moscow, let him see what is here and how.
– You said in one of your interviews that you ended your career largely because you will not risk for the sake of your children …
– It was so. In general, I played well that year. By the time the contract was ending, there were good options – both an extension with Rostov and a continuation in other Russian clubs.And then at one point everything breaks down, although he could have played for another 3-4 years at a high level.
But I realized that I was 31 years old, by that time I had three children – I have the right to do whatever I want with my life, but I have no right to spoil their lives.
For the same Klasnich in Germany, the situation was even worse – three transplants, but he still played. But I decided that breaking everything for the sake of three years of my football career was not my option.
– How long did you decide this for yourself?
– Enough.I barely survived: resuscitation, internal bleeding. The doctor who performed the operation literally saved my life.
How it was: when it all happened, I continued to play. Well, it hurts – but this is goalkeeper’s life, there is no way without pain (smiles) . I realized that something was wrong only when I started to faint.
Moment with Dejan’s injury at 2:55
The main danger was internal bleeding – it was not noticed in the first studies.As a result, during the operation, the surgeon returned all this blood to the vein – and by that time I had already lost two or two and a half liters of blood, counting was going on for minutes. It saved me. It is a pity that after all this I never saw this doctor.
– And to what extent did you not immediately understand the whole danger of the condition?
– After the game I went into the locker room, I realize that I am losing consciousness. They called an ambulance, took them to the hospital, but at the same time it was Easter – there weren’t too many doctors. They do an ultrasound scan – nothing, an X-ray – everything is fine.They say: now we will return to the base. But just in case, they did an MRI with contrast.
And then I see that everyone was running around. It was only then that they understood, they immediately began to prepare for the operation. And the holiday, there is no anesthesiologist – we had to urgently call everyone.
– Did they tell you what happened to you?
– A young doctor came and just asked: do you know what’s wrong with you? I say no. “You have a kidney problem – maybe we will have time to save it, maybe we will remove it. We don’t know until we open it. “But I didn’t even have time to get scared or think about something – they took me away almost immediately.
Then resuscitation, my wife was there with me, she was just pregnant with her third child. I lay there for several days, then two weeks in the general ward. I returned to normal life for about three or four months, and I fully recovered, probably, only after a year.
– Who was the most unexpected support in the hospital?
– A call from Kadyrov, who helped me financially at that moment – he gave me 50 thousand dollars.I don’t remember if I was still in the hospital or had already left when he called. This is extremely unexpected for me – okay, someone from the club would have contacted, but he had no direct relation to this whole story.
– Have you been talking for a long time?
– No, no. “How are you”, “let’s get well”, “we will help, do not worry.” Just a couple of minutes. And then they phoned from the club and handed over the money.
– There was some murky story with them.
– The money was transferred to “Rostov”, who later transferred it to me.But then there were different situations, yes. There were people who really wanted to help, there were those who were not very eager to do it.
– You were sent to the double when you returned.
– Yes, we trained in Kislovodsk, winter training camp, -15, can you imagine? In general, for the first time in my life I trained in such conditions, and even more so in my condition … Snow is knee-deep.
– How did you know that you will not fly with the main team?
– As usual, I flew to Rostov after Christmas for the training camp.I’m looking at the list, but I’m not on it.
I wanted to return to football, but the desire of the club is also important here. Maybe it’s worth understanding a coach who has a goalkeeper with one kidney. Will you take the risk and put him in the net even if he deserves it? Now, putting myself in the shoes of a coach, I understand the risk of this step.
– When you were sent with a double, did they try to talk to the management of the club, with the same Belous (at that time the club’s gender was Sport24)?
– More than once.I went there many times.
– And what was the reaction?
– Reaction … I’ll say one thing, I don’t want to say bad things. I played in Russia for 10 years. Everything I have I earned here. The fact that I have a business at home and my family lives in peace – for this I am very grateful to Russia.
But at that time, to put it mildly, I did not find understanding in the management of the club. Generally. With no money, nothing. “You are no longer needed.” The football world works like this: if you don’t pull or get injured, that’s it – you are not needed.Although, it seems to me, such injuries as mine happen quite rarely. Especially on the football field. And, probably, in this case, everything should be different.
I would like that in the future, if something like this happens for someone, the clubs will be occupied with these guys. Thank God, I’m fine now, but that injury is not crosses or ankles. I almost died playing for this football club.
– You even went to Headbutt …
– To Yura [Dudu], yes (laughs) .
– How did it come about?
– I went to the management. One, two, five, seven. They let me understand between the lines: that you are coming to us, go home. I needed to tell what was really going on. Because everyone pretended that everything was fine, but inside everything was far from the same. That’s why Dud called me to tell me my version.
Deyan in “Headbutt”
There was a lot of information about me then in the media, it’s still a rather unique case.There was Minko, who played without a kidney, but he is a field player – that’s another matter. Every workout I have how many falls from a great height. The goalkeeper, whatever one may say, has a greater risk.
– Did you communicate with Yuri after?
– Yes, we met a couple of times in Moscow after that. I see that he retired from sports, watched several of his films on YouTube with his sons: about Navalny, Kolyma, somewhere else 3-4 issues. I liked it.
Now he has got a good start, and when he came to Rostov for the first time, he made the impression of the most simple guy.With insane energy, when he interacts with you, the impression is that he wants to eat you.
He is a great fellow, during these 10 years he has been so promoted in the business that he likes. Is he in Moscow?
– Who knows, he’s filming all over the world now.
– (laughs) Well, his number remained, by the way – maybe I’ll call him.
– The last question about Rostov – after all, you returned there when the leadership changed to the position of a scout …
– Yes, I received a one-year contract, but I cannot say that I took up this position.I spent some time in the team, but this was more demanded by the situation in the media itself, that the club really needed me.
I flew with the team, was in the box constantly, and at the end of the 12th I returned home. And so it all ended.
What happened next: a return to reality, kindergartens as fate, friendship with Nikolic
– How is your health now, after 10 years?
– Everything is fine, there are no problems, although they may come later in the course of life.I train for myself, play football once a week for a veteran team – there are no restrictions.
Maybe this is for the best – they say that people with one kidney live on average five more years than with two, because they take care of themselves. Not that I follow closely, but the thought in my head always sits a little to take care of myself, perhaps eat a little less than I could.
– Lifestyle – how has it changed?
– This is probably the main question. You are in demand, you play in the Premier League, you have everything – and at one point your career is cut off like a sword.Simultaneously.
What is the problem of football players: we train, play, we think that we must always play at a good level and earn good money. And when the age comes, when you move from football to ordinary life, you are not ready for it, because all your life you have been in some kind of box. One call – they make you a car or an apartment. You don’t have to do anything yourself – the club will do everything for you.
– And at one moment everything turns upside down.
– Yes, just after the injury I had to change my whole lifestyle at once.It is good that I have kept the money that I earned during my career in Russia. I invested them in business, we have kindergartens.
When you get up at 7 in the morning and go to work, it’s not at all the same when a football player goes to training at 5 in the evening: he got up at 11, walked, had breakfast, then you will rest from breakfast, workout, and that’s all – you are free. After 20 years of such a career, you lose the rhythm of life. Rather, on the contrary, you once again plunge into a normal life – we, football players, live an unreal life.
That is why many football players have problems – they don’t save money, they spend it right away. A very small percentage of players invest this money in something and can live on this money after the end of their careers. We still live on the money that I earned in Russia, because I didn’t let everything go, I didn’t live too beautifully.
In general, in short, I used to call to solve some problem, but now everyone calls me so that I can sort out all the questions (laughs) .
– Judging by your words, you didn’t really break away from real life.
– My father, who died in 2010, had a carpentry shop. I worked there until I started playing football professionally. Thank God that this workshop was in my life, and I understood that real life was somewhere nearby. Of course, I lost her when I became a football player, but I didn’t completely forget – it helped me when I was left without football.
– How did you come to a business idea with kindergartens?
– It seems to me that this is just fate. I didn’t really care about my children, but here are strangers.
When I flew home, I began to think about what to do. In the area where we live, there were no free places in the kindergarten. A friend comes to me and says: get busy, it’s a good thing. And I was like: oh well, why am I going to do this.
That’s it, several months have passed, my wife and I are sitting and thinking about what we should do in general. And then I thought: my wife, one sister, another sister around me. I myself, after 10 years in Russia, at home as a foreigner. I remembered this idea with the kindergarten and at one point I just decided – we will do it.
I had one object, or rather a room, on 600 square meters. We invested money: we made our own kitchen, a gym – in general, a good kindergarten.
– Did things go uphill right away?
– No, there was no experience. On the first day we had eight children, and three of them were mine, two were sisters, and the rest were our friends. A month or two or three – no one comes. I can’t understand what’s going on, I was already waking up with the thought “should I close it all”.
But at some point children started coming to us – it turned out that it just took time for people to look and start trusting us.After all, they still leave us their child. Two years later, we already had 90 children.
And in 2015, the state began to allocate subsidies to families to pay for kindergartens. You pay a fee, and then 70-80% is given back to you. And after that we just started to break up – 90 more children came in one month. We didn’t even know what to do – it is not so easy to adapt one child in the kindergarten, but here there is a whole crowd.
At that moment we opened the second kindergarten – now both have 300 children.That’s how it happens, fate.
– Is this a family business?
– Yes, my sister and wife are working there now. But there are about 70 personnel in total.
– Have you thought about developing and opening a school so that you have a lineup?
– The area where we opened the kindergartens is not the richest. The idea of private schools is not so good because there are no government subsidies. If they had been, they would have thought, but it’s so hard – it’s for richer regions.
– But then you returned to football – how did you come to the agency business?
– I was doing this even before the kindergartens.But I realized that looking for stability in football is not worth it – and as for the playing career, and around football too. You can make a successful transfer, and then sit for a year and do nothing. We needed stability, business. This is how kindergartens appeared – people need to leave their children somewhere, there is no particular choice.
So when I have built the whole system, I am doing this at the same time. True, four children – they also need to pay attention, and more than any other business.
– Is that why the elder was brought to Russia?
– Yes, to look at Moscow, to see my father’s friends.Next time I’ll take the youngest – two of them are difficult. You can’t leave the youngest one at all – he can go on a spree somewhere, which you won’t find later.
I told him that I could take Alexander (the elder) with me, because as soon as I agree with him, it will be so. You will grow up a little – you will also go with me.
– How old is he now?
– 12. One year younger than the senior. The youngest son will be three in July, and the daughter will be nine.
– About friends. Have you seen Nikolic yet?
– Yes.For me, his success is not surprising at all. Knowing his character, he will definitely be the coach of a large European club – it’s a matter of time. We grew up with him, played for the youth team when we were 10-12 years old.
– Will you tell any stories about him that we do not know?
– I don’t remember any specific stories, but Marco was always a very serious guy. Even as a child. No unnecessary movements or emotions.
– When he had the option with Loko, did he consult with you?
– No, no, we didn’t talk about this.I knew that Marco had such an option, but he had people who could advise him.
– He did not succeed in everything in the fall …
– Well, there were reasons. And the coronavirus got into the team, plus look at the pressure from the comparison with Semin he got out of. He’s like that. The more you strangle him, the more desire and motivation he has to prove that he is stronger in this situation.
– You are now working as an agent – you could offer him some players for strengthening.
– Not-not-not (laughs) . We sat and talked in a friendly way. This, again, is about the issue of stability: our family, thank God, lives in such a way that I can just sit with a person, not to mention work.
– What can you tell us about agency activities in general?
– When we finish, if we stay in football, what choice is it: coach or agent. There is no third.
– Well, you can still follow the administrative path.
– Yes, but it’s hard, because the decline in salary after a playing career is crazy big.This is a less realistic option. With coaching, you have to go back to first grade and learn all over again. I didn’t want to go through this.
So agency activity is not ideal, but if you want to stay in football, then this is the most realistic option. Especially when you have established contacts in Russia for 10 years, there are many friends here.
At first, of course, not everything worked out. You think you understand everything about football, but it’s different around the pitch. It’s harder to be an agent than a player. As a footballer, you just have to play.And they also pay money, feed, clothe – it’s just paradise. And the agent needs to spin.
– Your three most successful transfers?
– Probably Radoslav Petrovic to Dynamo Kiev, Dejan Drazic to Celta, Fatos Bechiraya to Dynamo Moscow. But so, there were still good transitions to “Osasuna”, for example, or “Brugge”.
– Who is easier to work with: European clubs or Russians?
– From the point of view of bureaucracy, I will not say, everyone has different characteristics.Here the division is not even Russian or European – in each country everything is different. With Russia, it’s a little easier for me in the sense that I understand the mentality – both peoples are Orthodox. Plus I played here for almost 10 years. In Europe, however, everything is more restrained, more correct.
– What is the most unusual story from this work of yours?
– Oh, there are a lot of stories from agency activities. But there is a problem: they are not all for the story (laughs) .
In memory of the great goalkeeper
In memory of the great goalkeeper
On the fields of the Youth Sports School “Yunost”, the final fights were held, which revealed the winners in three age groups of the final tournament of the republican stage “Leather Ball-2019”.

October 22 – RIA Novosti, 06/07/2008
195 years ago (1811) Ferenc LIST was born, Hungarian composer, pianist, conductor
Born in Hungary, in the town of Doboryan (Sopron region).It was one of the estates of the famous Hungarian princes Esterhazy, whose name is associated with the history of the life of other great musicians – Haydn, Schubert. The outstanding talent of the composer was discovered quite early. Liszt took his first steps in music under the guidance of his father. Arriving in Vienna, he took lessons from Beethoven’s student Karl Cerny, as well as from the famous Italian composer Antonio Salieri. Having moved to Paris, the composer got into the cycle of musical life. A huge role for Liszt was played by his meetings and communication in the musical capital with outstanding musicians – Niccolo Paganini, Hector Berlioz and Frederic Chopin.Shocked by Paganini’s ingenious playing, Liszt, who had already won the fame of the piano maestro by that time, took up the piano playing with renewed fervor and set himself the goal of achieving a mastery in this area equal to that of Paganini. Liszt achieved his goal. Many threads connect these two most outstanding performers – virtuoso brilliance, which serves as a means of revealing the content of the performed work, decorativeness and brilliance, evoking associations with the sonority of a symphony orchestra or its individual instruments.The years 1839-1847 were marked by Liszt’s unparalleled concert activity in almost all European countries. These incessant concert trips, accompanied by continuous triumph, brought Liszt enormous fame and popularity. In 1848-1861, the composer lives in Weimar. During this period he created the best works. In the field of symphony, Liszt introduced a new genre of one-part symphonic poem, which became a favorite in the work of composers from different countries and received great development and original creative implementation in Russian classical symphony of the second half of the 19th century (symphonic pictures, poems, fantasies of Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Glazunov ).Liszt’s performing art was characterized by a grandiose scope and pathos, an uplifting and at the same time poetic picture – powerful chords in all registers, cascades of virtuoso passages, a melodious cantilena. Liszt’s playing amazed the audience with the richness of colors and timbre shades. Liszt’s songs also occupy a significant place in the vocal lyrics of the 19th century. Until the end of his days, Liszt retained creative strength and mental youth. Despite feeling unwell, Liszt traveled to Bayreuth to listen to Wagner’s operas Parsifal and Tristan and Isolde.Ill with pneumonia, Franz Liszt died in Bayreuth on July 31, 1886.
162 years ago (1844) Sarah BERNARD was born, the great French actress
Sarah Bernhardt was born in Paris to an engineer family. After graduating from drama classes at the Paris Conservatory in 1862, the actress made her debut at the Comédie Française. Then “Gimnaz”, “Port-Saint-Martin”, “Odeon” and again “Comedie Francaise”. Bernard played young heroines of the classical and modern repertoire.These were plays by Racine, Hugo, Voltaire, de Bernier, Parodi. Since the 1880s, Bernard has played her contemporaries. For her, V. Sardou writes “Theodora”, then three years later “Tosca”, and even later – “The Witch”. E.Rostan created especially for her such plays as “Princess of Dreams”, “Samaritan Woman”, “Eaglet”. She enjoyed particular success in the plays of A. Dumas-son, and one of her best roles was the role of Marguerite Gaultier in “The Lady of the Camellias”. At the same time, the actress also played male roles – Hamlet and Lorenzaccio in the plays of Shakespeare and Musset.Stanislavsky considered Sarah Bernhardt’s art an example of technical excellence, he noted her beautiful voice, refined diction, plasticity. Theater connoisseur Prince Volkonsky also highly appreciated Bernard’s stage skills: “She perfectly mastered the polarity of emotions – from joy to sorrow, from happiness to horror, from affection to rage – the subtlest nuance of human feelings. And then – the famous talk, the famous whisper, the famous growl, the famous “golden voice”, – noted Volkonsky. – The last step of mastery is her explosions… How she knew how to lower herself to jump up, to gather herself to throw herself; how she knew how to aim, crawl to burst out. The same is in her facial expressions: what a skill from a barely noticeable inception to the highest scope … “. True, there were critics who believed that Bernard’s virtuoso skill, sophisticated technique, observation, artistic taste were combined with deliberate showiness of the game. According to Chekhov, “every breath of Sarah Bernhardt, her tears, her dying convulsions, her whole game is nothing but an impeccably and cleverly learned lesson.”Turgenev wrote in a letter to Polonskaya: “I cannot say how angry I am with all the madness committed about Sarah Bernhardt, this impudent and warped puffist, this mediocrity, which only has that lovely voice. Will no one in the press tell her the truth? .. ”. Yernard often toured abroad, performed in many theaters in Europe and America, and visited Russia three times (1881, 1892, 1908). In 1893 she acquired the Renaissance Theater, and in 1898 – the theater on the Place de Chatelet, which was named the Teatro Sarah Bernhardt.The actress was married twice: the first husband is a prince from an ancient French family, the second is an extraordinary beauty actor from Greece. But Sarah’s main passion was theater. She lived by him, she was inspired by him. Sarah also studied painting, sculpture, wrote funny novels and funny plays. She ventured into the sky on a Giffard balloon, where at an altitude of 2300 meters the daredevils “had a hearty supper with goose liver, fresh bread and oranges. The champagne cork saluted the sky with a muffled noise … “. The actress also worked hard on her physical form, even after her leg was amputated in 1915.She continued to perform almost until the last days of her life. Sarah Bernhardt died in March 1923 at the age of 78 in her home. Almost all of Paris attended the funeral of the “theater queen”. Tens of thousands of admirers of her talent followed the rosewood coffin across the city – from the Boulevard Malserbes to the Pere Lachaise cemetery. Sarah Bernhardt’s last journey was literally strewn with camellias, her favorite flowers.
16 years ago (1990) the historical name of Nizhny Novgorod was returned to the city of Gorky
Nizhny Novgorod is the regional center of the Nizhny Novgorod region; has an area of 350 square kilometers; population – almost one and a half million inhabitants.In terms of population, Nizhny Novgorod is the third city in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg. The history of the city begins in 1221. Nizhny Novgorod was founded at the confluence of the great Russian rivers Volga and Oka by Prince Yuri (Georgy) Vsevolodovich as a stronghold for the defense of the Russian borders from the Mordovians, Cheremis and Tatars. The city received the name “Lower”, as historians suggest, because of its location in the “lower” lands relative to Novgorod the Great. From the end of the 15th century, for many decades, Nizhny Novgorod became a reliable stronghold of Moscow in the struggle for the great river route.At this time, a stone Kremlin was being erected in the city, which became an outstanding structure of Russian fortification art. From the walls of this Kremlin in the winter of 1612, a militia headed by Kozma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky marched out to fight the Polish-Lithuanian invaders. With the capture of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible (1552), and then Astrakhan, Nizhny Novgorod became the center through which all the trade of the Russian state with the east went. In the 17th century, Nizhny Novgorod was the center of mass formations of ship caravans.Even then, Nizhny became a major shipbuilding center. The rise of Nizhny Novgorod as an administrative center took place in the 18th century. Since 1714, the city became a provincial one, and from 1779 to 1796 it became the center of the Nizhny Novgorod governorship, which at various times included the Vyatka, Kostroma, Penza provinces and the Alatyr province. At this time, a particular hospital and a pharmacy were opened in Nizhny Novgorod, public private theaters began to operate (the theater of N.G. Shakhovsky is one of the oldest in the country).At the turn of the 18th and 19th century, Nizhny Novgorod became a major scientific and cultural center of the country. Self-taught mechanic I. Kulibin, mathematician N. Lobachevsky, prominent teacher I. Kuzhelev, historian N. Ilyinsky, travel writer V. Baranshchikov and many others lived here. The founders of Russian art and journalistic photography A. Karelin and M. Dmitriev lived and worked in the city. On October 7, 1932, Nizhny Novgorod was renamed the city of Gorky in connection with the 40th anniversary of the literary and social activities of the proletarian writer Maxim Gorky.The decision to rename the city and region was made by a decree of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee and a decree of the presidium of the regional executive committee. The corresponding decision in Nizhny Novgorod itself was perceived rather ambiguously. One of those who did not approve of the change in the name of the city was Gorky himself. In a letter to Fyodor Khitrovsky (Nizhny Novgorod journalist and ethnographer) on February 19, 1933 from Sorento, he wrote: “Today, for the first time, he wrote on an envelope instead of N. Novgorod – Gorky. This is very embarrassing and unpleasant. ” On October 22, 1990, the city was returned to its historical name.Nizhny Novgorod is one of the 100 cities in the world, which, according to UNESCO, are of world cultural value: the city has a unique Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin with the Mikhailo-Arkhangelsk Kremlin Cathedral – the oldest stone temple of Nizhny (built to commemorate the victory of the people’s militia under the leadership of Minin and Pozharsky in early 17th century). The remains of Kozma Minin are buried in the cathedral. In the city, there are monastic complexes that are rare in terms of historical and architectural features for Russia in the 17th-19th centuries.The most important role in the preservation of the cultural and historical heritage of the city belongs to museums. Today in Nizhny Novgorod there are 14 museums (together with branches), seven of them are municipal.
77 years ago (1929) was born Lev Ivanovich YASHIN, an outstanding athlete, one of the best goalkeepers in world football
His game is a whole era in the development of the art of goalkeeper. A distinctive feature of Yashin was his phenomenal ability to read the game: he always managed to be in that point of the penalty area, from which a threat to the goal could follow.He was the first to master throwing the ball into the game with his hands and became the organizer of his team’s counterattacks. He never lost his composure, acted calmly and decisively, instilling confidence in the defenders. Possessing excellent coordination of movements and lightning-fast reaction, Lev Ivanovich knew how to predict how the attack would develop, and accordingly chose the position. “The goalkeeper-nugget” – experts said about Yashin. Throughout his sports career, he played 812 matches, of which 326 in the national championship and 79 in the USSR national team.From 1956 to 1968, Yashin was invariably included in the lists of 33 best football players in the country at number 1. He is the only goalkeeper in the world who was awarded the special prize of the best football player in Europe – the Golden Ball, which was awarded to him in 1963. In terms of the number of awards and medals won, Lev Ivanovich is the record holder among domestic football players. The last time at the gate Yashin stood on May 27, 1971 in the first half of the farewell match between the FIFA Stars team, where masters from twelve countries played, and the Dynamo team.There were about one hundred thousand spectators in Luzhniki that day. The master did not appear at the gate anymore and was not part of the veteran teams. Lev Ivanovich Yashin died on March 20, 1990 after a serious illness, and was buried at the Vagankovskoye cemetery in Moscow. At the stadium “Dynamo”, which is associated with the best years of Yashin, on October 23, 1999, a monument was unveiled “Legendary goalkeeper Lev Ivanovich Yashin” designed by the famous sculptor A. Rukavishnikov. The match of football stars dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Lev Ivanovich was also held there. In 1999, the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFISF) named Lev Yashin the best goalkeeper in Europe of the 20th century, and in 2000 – the goalkeeper of the century.
2 years ago (2004) the largest mosque in Central Asia was opened in Turkmenistan
The mosque was opened in Kipchak – the ancestral village of the President of Turkmenistan Saparmurat Niyazov near Ashgabat. The opening ceremony was attended by the head of state himself, members of the government, representatives of the foreign diplomatic corps, as well as about six thousand residents and guests of the country. The mosque in Kipchak has been built by specialists from one of the French companies since 2001.The contract value for this monumental structure is US $ 100 million. The mosque called “Soul of Turkmenbashi” is four minarets each 91 meters high, symbolizing the independence of Turkmenistan in 1991; here at the same time 10 thousand people can perform namaz. The chapel is covered with a huge octagonal carpet with an area of 215 square meters, woven by Turkmen weavers. In addition to the main door, there are seven more entrances. A hall for five thousand people has been built to hold memorial dinners – sadaka.The mosque is painted not only with suras from the Koran, but also with quotes in the Turkmen language from the Rukhnama (the spiritual code of the Turkmen, written by Saparmurat Niyazov). 25 hectares of the 36 hectares of the mosque are covered with greenery. About one million trees, bushes and ornamental flowers brought from Italy, Spain and other countries are planted here. There is an underground parking for 100 buses and 400 cars.
The tragedy of the ex-goalkeeper of Milan and Napoli.Wenger saw his son as the future captain of Arsenal
Tomorrow at Match! Football 2 “-” Napoli “-” Milan “. Denis Romantsov tells about the legendary goalkeeper of these teams Giovanni Galli.
Tomorrow at Match! Football 2 “-” Napoli “-” Milan “. Denis Romantsov tells about the legendary goalkeeper of these teams Giovanni Galli.
My father went to all his games for the Fiorentina youth team, and it annoyed: after all, he asked, no need.At seven in the morning, Giovanni set out from Pisa to Florence, and his father Mario took the next train and followed.
The debut in the adult championship in Italy was so-so. Fiorentina coach Mazzone released him for the second half of the away match against Juventus – before the break, the main goalkeeper Carmignani missed three times, besides, Juve was second, and Fiorentina was second from the end, and all this slightly worried nineteen-year-old Galli … On that day they lost 1: 5, but a month later Giovanni came out from the first minutes in Bologna, and with his help Fiorentina won for the first time in the season.
Father demanded: “Bring me to the game – even on a stretcher!” And he himself understood that this was impossible. The tumor of the bone was bedridden – any movement threatened to fracture. Mario Galli never saw his son play in Serie A. Two months after his death, Fiorentina pulled away from the penultimate place and did not fly out – largely thanks to the great performance of Giovanni Galli, who missed in four final rounds only once.
With an early debut at Fiorentina, he was lucky. The main goalkeeper for years to come was considered the 24-year-old Mattolini, but he was lured away by Napoli, who gave in exchange for the 32-year-old Carmignani.Because of this, coach Mazzone changed his mind about letting Galli go on loan: “Carmignani will start the season, but the future is yours.” Five years later, Galli flew from the national team to the World Cup. Mattolini is stuck in the lower leagues. Then: kidney failure, hemodialysis, kidney transplant and death, which the former partner of Mattolini in Fiorentina Ferrucho Mazzola explained by the regular use of doping.
Galli also once took doping – forcedly. At the end of his second season at Fiorentina, he fell ill with a fever before playing in Vicenza.The night was tormented and called the masseur Pallino: “Help me out, I have a fever.” He brought a huge glass of whiskey and honey. “Are you nuts? It’s seven in the morning now. If I drink this, I will pass out for three days. ” Pallino insisted, and at three o’clock in the afternoon, the energized Galli entered the field of the Romeo Menti stadium. Among his rivals was the best Italian striker Paolo Rossi, but Giovanni did not concede, and Fiorentina took the victory from Vicenza (1: 0).
Galli went to the victorious World Cup for Italy as the third goalkeeper, but after training he was one of the last to return to the locker room – he helped the same Paolo Rossi to work out his shots.
Coach of the national team Enzo Bearzot respectfully treated the main goalkeeper and captain of the team, forty-year-old Dino Zoff, and often teased the others. During a friendly match in Cyprus, Galli’s Fiorentina partner Giancarlo Antognoni shot so deftly that the ball flew into the sea, where the American aircraft carrier was moored. “So you will drag us into war with the USA again,” said the coach.
The call to the national team forced Galli to postpone his wedding from May to September. It turned out funny – the ceremony began at six o’clock in the evening, and when they decided to take pictures, it got dark.A week later, I had to put on my wedding clothes again and go to the Roman theater in Fiesole to shoot historical footage.

And with Roman coach Giancarlo De Sisti, Galli experienced his happiest years at Fiorentina. Leading the club at thirty-eight years old, De Sisti behaved like an older brother with the players, and almost got ahead of Juventus in the fight for the championship. Due to surgery to remove a brain cyst, De Sisti left the club, and his successor Feruccio Valcareggi shocked the players with severity.
“He demanded that even injured people come to training,” Galli recalled in his book. – But we had Daniele Massaro, who started to feel pain right after the game, suffered all week, missed training, and by Friday he was recovering sharply and played again on the weekend. Once he saw that Daniele was writhing from stomach pain, Valcareggi demanded: “Run at least one circle around the field.” But it turned out that at that time Daniele did not pretend: he had to call an ambulance and take him to an operation to remove the appendicitis. “
Galli is the only one in Fiorentina who brought children, his son Niccolo and daughter Camilla, to training. New coach Aldo Agroppi teased them: “Don’t go to Milan with your father – you won’t see the sun there.” But it was too late to dissuade: Milan beat Juventus in the fight for Galli and paid Fiorentina seven billion lire (a year later, Marco van Basten cost five times less).
Galli came to Milan as the main goalkeeper of the national team, but was ruthlessly criticized for a goal from Maradona at the Mexican World Cup.He gently ferried the ball into the far corner, and Galli was waiting for a powerful blow to the near one and did not react. Problems multiplied: the children constantly caught cold, his wife Anna broke her arm, and Giovanni injured his knee, having finished the first Milan season a month earlier.
Then Milan was headed by Arrigo Sacchi. Three years earlier, he coached Fiorentina’s youth team and knew Galli well, but at Milan they did not work together right away. In his book Total Football, Sacchi recalled that Giovanni was great on the line, but the coach wanted the goalkeeper to come out more often, and Galli had to rebuild.The coach of Milan goalkeepers, Pietro Carmignani, helped – the one whom Galli ousted from Fiorentina’s goal at the age of nineteen.
Galli won the European Cup twice with AC Milan. For the first final – against Steaua – as many as ninety-five thousand Italian fans came to Barcelona, and Milan won 4-0. “I had a great rest that evening,” Galli admitted in his autobiography. “I think I never touched the ball during the whole match.”
After the second victory – over Benfica in Vienna – emotions pushed Galli onto the lawn.To hug him, Ruud Gullit rushed from the other end of the field, missing several months due to injury and returning to the final thanks to the support of Galli.
The Vienna match was Giovanni’s last for AC Milan. With the arrival of a new goalkeeper, also a pupil of Fiorentina Andrea Pazzaglia (the future songwriter who died of a heart attack at fifty), Galli almost stopped playing in Serie A and only appeared in international tournaments. It was unnerving.
Sensing this, he was lured away by Luciano Moggi, CEO of Napoli.The first season – some problems: we were kicked out of the Champions Cup early, losing to Spartak in Moscow in a penalty shootout, and two months later they fell into thirteenth place in the championship. Maradona arrogantly clashed with the management, flew to the match with Spartak on a private plane separately from the team, and then got caught on cocaine and left Napoli.
But Galli’s eight-year-old son became interested in football in Naples and soon showed himself to be a promising right-back.

Milan called Giovanni back, but Napoli did not let go, and a year later did not renew the contract. Joining Torino, Galli reached the Cup Winners’ Cup semi-finals, but the club owner was accused of embezzlement and the team had to be sold off. Galli found himself in Parma, an ambitious team that won two European cups in three years, but trained in a city park.
Parma coach Nevio Scala promised Galli practice in the Italian Cup matches, but when the team reached the final, he said that the strongest should play, and released the main goalkeeper Luca Bucci.Offended, Galli left Parma and, after frolicking in Lucchese for a short time, gave up the game. The owner of Milan Silvio Berlusconi called him again – now as a commentator for the Mediaset TV company.
For four years, Galli appeared on Sunday nights on Pressing and Controcampo, where he learned the main lesson of TV presenter Raimondo Vianello: “Pretend you know what you are talking about – even if you don’t.”
The son of Galli, who played for Fiorentina, infiltrated the Italian youth team and ended up at Arsenal, with whom he signed a contract after two days of watching.Giovanni was afraid to let the guy go to London, but after talking with Arsene Wenger he thawed out. In addition, Niccolo is tired of the fact that in Italy he is considered only the son of the famous goalkeeper. He told his father: “In England no one knows what kind of family I am, and I can really understand what I am capable of.”
Wenger often attracted him to training with the base, and then Niccolo came to training before everyone else, took the keys from the storekeeper and tidied up the locker room, preparing it for the arrival of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. In the youth team of Arsenal, Galli was friends with the German Foltz, the Frenchman Alladier and the Brazilian Filho.”They suffered from the hazing of British children,” Giovanni Galli wrote in his autobiography, “but Niccolo did not react to provocations.”
Among those who got Niccolo at Arsenal were Jay Bothroyd, who later moved to Italian Perugia, and Rowan Ricketts, who over the past ten years played in Canada, USA, Hungary, Moldova, Germany, Ireland, India, Ecuador , Thailand, Hong Kong and Bangladesh.

After winning the FA Youth Cup, Niccolo asked for a loan from Bologna.Her coach Francesco Guidolin ordered to show up for training right after the medical examination – the day before there was a friendly game with Juventus, the leaders were resting, and juniors were needed for the two-sided. Seventeen-year-old Niccolo looked so great next to the experienced Kolyvanov and Padalino that in the first round he went against Roma, replacing Max Tonetto in the second half.
“On the bench he looked so small that he looked like a mouse in a tracksuit,” recalled in his book Giovanni Galli, who was then sitting with his wife on the podium.After the game, Giovanni entered the dressing room of Bologna, confident that his son had a day off tomorrow and they would spend the whole day in Florence, but he was surprised: “No. I’ll go to school in the morning. ” Agent Furio Valcareggi, who returned Niccolo to Italy, did not calm down: “Let’s celebrate your debut properly!”
Smiling, Niccolo refused. He also left England because he studied there only three days a week and believed that this was not enough.
In early February, Niccolo took part in an international tournament in Bari.In the youth team, he met Fabio Quagliarella, whom he became friends with in the Torino children’s team in the mid-nineties. After the tournament there was a party, but Niccolo missed it – he was sitting with his father, struck by a severe headache.
Giovanni Galli recalled in his autobiography: “As a child, I saw little of my father (at first he worked in a bar until late, and then I left for Florence), I lost him early, did not have a brother, and I lacked a man with whom I could talk frankly … But Niccolo and I were as close as brothers. “
On February 9, Giovanni’s wife Anna picked up the phone and heard: “Niccolo was riding a moped from training and had an accident. Hit my stomach on the fence, but nothing serious. ” I called my husband: I urgently need to go to Bologna. On the way we learned: Niccolo is in the operating room. Rushing to the hospital, they saw the son’s partner in Bologna, Enrico Spanarello. Everything became clear on his face.
Niccolo had no scratches or fractures. Only the wound on his stomach was from a piece of iron that killed him.
Two days later, Bologna met Roma again – the second round of the Italian championship began.During a minute of silence, Coach Guidolin burst into tears on his assistant’s shoulder, and fans stretched out the Ciao Niccolò banner.
Fabio Quagliarella took the 27th number, which Niccolo wore, and still plays under it. Bologna named its sports center after Niccolo Galli. And Arsene Wenger said: “I am sure if he survived, he would become the captain of Arsenal and the Italian national team.”
“It was the biggest funeral I’ve seen,” said Arsenal youth captain Ben Chorley.“There was the whole base of Fiorentina, led by Gabriel Batistuta, all of Bologna, the entire championship of the Italian national team with Fabio Baresi – there were thousands of people.”

On February 16, 2001, exactly one week after the tragedy, the same Enrico Spanarello, who met Niccolo’s parents at the hospital, had an accident, turning over in a Peugeot 206 (20-year-old defender Federico Gmeiner was driving), fell into to whom he remained disabled.Walter Mazzari, who then coached the youth team of Bologna, admitted in his autobiography that, having lost two guys in a week, he was thinking of quitting football: “Everything around has lost its meaning for me.”
At Christmas, Giovanni Galli took his wife and daughters to the Maldives, where there is no Christmas tree and home comfort – nothing that would resemble Christmas with his son. On the other days, thanks to his new job, from eight in the morning until two in the morning he went somewhere, met with someone: just not to remember that he would never again hug Nicolo and discuss a fresh match with him.
“I am still looking through the eyes of a wonderful boy who left us so early – no matter what city I came to and no matter what match I watched,” – a year after the death of his son, Galli confessed in a note for La Gazzetta dello Sport: the youngest daughter writes with a marker in the most unexpected places, on the closet door or under a chair, that he misses his brother, and tells his mother that he wants to die, see Nicolo and return to his parents.
The eldest daughter Camilla at first closed herself off, went into herself, and then founded the Niccolo Galli Foundation with her brother’s friends – to help disabled children (the foundation is supported, for example, by Francesco Toldo, Gianluigi Buffon, Diego Maradona and Christian Panucci).The first were helped by Enrico Spanarello – his mother Giuseppina did not have money for expensive rehabilitation, and his father, a doctor by profession, abandoned his family.

A month after Niccolo’s death, Fiorentina owner Vittorio Cecchi Gori called Galli as crisis manager. The club soon won the Italian Cup, but left Serie A a year later and filed for bankruptcy. The new owners, the Della Valle family, tasked Galli with resurrecting Fiorentina and getting her out of the fourth league.
Galli begged for uniforms and balls from friends from Lotto, another friend, defender of the Italian championship Pietro Verkhovoda appointed coach, and brought Fabio Quagliarella from Torino to attack. Although the team found itself in the basement of Italian football, even in away matches it was supported by five to ten thousand fans. Galli recalled in his book that the match in Gubbio was supposed to be postponed due to snowfall, but the fans cleared the field and the teams were able to play.
After returning to Serie A, Della Valle was named CEO Pantaleo Corvino.Galli did not interfere and left the club – focused on the fund. A few years later, he reached the second round of elections for mayor of Florence, where he received forty percent of the vote and lost to Mateo Renzi, who later became Prime Minister of Italy.
In the spring – on the eve of his sixtieth birthday – Galli admitted in an interview with Il Corriere della Sera that he holds four or five meetings every day for the foundation, but forgets about fatigue in moments like what happened recently: young parents came up with a stroller and thanked the Niccolo Foundation for Galli saved their newborn son.

THEORETICAL MATERIAL FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY
Tactics is a system of individual and team actions of football players, the goal of which is to achieve victory in the match. Depending on the direction of tactical actions, they are divided into two main groups: attacking tactics and defense tactics.Each of the types of tactical actions, in turn, includes the individual, group and team actions of football players.
The main task of tactical actions in defense is not to allow the opponent’s attackers to handle the ball with high quality, to approach the shooting distance to the goal, to strike them aimingly and score a goal.
There are five main rules for tactical actions in defense:
Rule # 1. The main thing is to defend the goal, not try to take the ball away.
Rule No. 2.Passing accuracy guaranteed.
Rule No. 3. Simplicity of the game.
Rule No. 4. Defenders are obliged to insure each other.
Rule No. 5. Maximum concentration preservation.
Successful action in defense largely depends on the ability of the defense players to individually act against the attackers. Individual defense tactics include actions against the player without the ball and actions against the player with the ball. Acting against an offensive player who is not in possession of the ball, the defender has the goal of “closing” or “intercepting”.
“Closing” is the movement of defenders in order to take the correct position, making it difficult for the attacker to get the ball. “Interception” is a defensive player’s advance to the ball to stop the attacker’s attacking actions. The defender must have time to make a dash in the proposed direction of the ball.
Individual actions against the ball carrier include tackling the ball, countering the pass, countering the ball carrier and countering the kicks.For a defender to take the ball, speed, a sense of distance, and the ability to assess the game situation are very important. It must be remembered that if the tackle is unsuccessful, the situation for the goal can become very dangerous. Counter-pass is used in a game situation where the offensive player’s partner with the ball is in a better position. The defender’s job is to prevent a sharp pass of the ball to that partner. Resistance to going out with the ball to an acute position consists in accompanying the attacker with a parallel course, pushing him back to the sideline, where he will be limited by space and deprived of the active assistance of partners.Counteracting blows consists in the activities of the defender aimed at interrupting the trajectory of the ball in the event that such a trajectory is dangerous for the defended goal.
Group defensive tactics define the organized actions of the defensive players against the attackers. Its main methods include belaying, building a “wall” and creating an artificial position “offside”. Insurance is a way of mutual assistance during a football match, aimed at choosing a position and a course of action that will allow, if necessary, to correct a mistake made by a partner.The construction of the “wall” is used by the team at the goal of which a free kick or a free kick has been awarded. The defending team will form a group of players with the aim of blocking the path of the ball on impact. Most often, the wall is built in order to protect the near corner of its goal from a direct blow. The creation of an artificial position is based on the fact that a situation is created when the attacker at the time of the partner’s pass is closer to the opponent’s goal line than the ball and body of the next-to-last opponent, including the goalkeeper.
Command tactics include defense against rapid attack and defense against gradual attack.When defending against a quick attack, if the opponent seeks to complete the attack in the center, the players are tightly concentrated in the area of the penalty area and are directly fighting for the ball, eliminating scoring chances. If the attack is on the flank, the players move towards the direction of the attack. When defending against a gradual attack, the defending team in the initial phase of the defense prefers to retreat mainly without active struggle. Organized and coordinated defensive actions in their own half of the field deprive the opponent of such an important factor as space on the way to goal.
EXAMPLES AND ANALYSIS OF THE TRAINING MODULE TASKS SOLUTION
1. What are the main rules of tactical actions in defense?
1. The defender must be faster than the attacker.
2. The main thing is to defend the goal, not try to take the ball away.
3. Guaranteed passing accuracy.
4. Simplicity of the game.
5. There should be more defenders than attackers.
6. Defenders are obliged to insure each other.
7. Maximum preservation of concentration.
Correct answer :
2, 3, 4, 6, 7.
Analysis of solution : everything is logical enough. The defender may not be faster than the attacker, but with the right actions to reduce the threat to the goal (1), and the defender can play the game individually in a critical situation, without the support of partners (5). This means that these options disappear. The rest of the options are correct.
2. Place the sequence of tactical actions in defense in the correct temporal order:
1.Prevent a goal from being scored.
2. Do not allow the opponent’s attackers to handle the ball properly.
3. Do not allow the opponent’s attackers to hit the goal.
4. Do not allow the opponent’s attackers to come within striking distance to the goal.
Correct answer :
2, 4, 3, 1.
