I recently wrote an article for Inside Futbol on the appointments of Juan Ramon Carrasco and Luis Zubeldia at Emelec and Barcelona respectively, which can be read here.
As a companion to that piece, I have collected together some relevant video below.
First off, here is Emelec’s 5-0 thrashing of Imbabura, including a hat-trick from Fernando Gimenez.
Emelec’s 1-0 win over FC Manta – Gimenez again the scorer. Assist by 17-year old Dennys Hurtado.
Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Espoli, featuring some shocking goalkeeper from Espoli’s Diego Martinez (@ 1:21) and a sublime through ball from Barcelona’s Damian Diaz (@ 2:02)
And finally, an insight into a Carrasco team talk, from his time with River Plate of Uruguay. Money isn’t everything!
