Roberto Moreno has been working with Luis Enrique since they met at Barcelona B and has followed him all the way to Rome, Vigo, Barcelona and now the Spanish national team, which he will coach tonight in the Asturian's absence. With Luis Enrique having to leave the Spain camp due to a family emergency, Moreno will fill in. He is one of Luis Enrique's key men with the Spanish national team, appearing at press conferences and on the touchline. The role with La Roja varies for Moreno, as he is an expert in scouting and is also an opposition analyst. At Celta Vigo he was also a key figure and could be seen giving instructions on the sidelines, while Juan Carlos Unzue was in the dugout alongside Luis Enrique. The coach is known as one of pioneers of video analysis in Spanish football and has also written a book titled 'My recipe of the 4-4-2'. … [Read more...] about Who is Roberto Moreno, the man who’ll coach Spain in Malta?

vice versa: it’s merely a day for focusing on all that’s great about those born with XX genes, or who identify as female. It’s also a day for remembering those women who should have graced whole chapters of history books but who, given that ladies were considered an inferior species until recent decades both socially and legally, have never found their fame. Spain is as guilty as every other country in the world; pioneers, saviours and female talent in major artistic and literary movements have often remained in oblivion until now, and are only just finding their voices, some of them centuries after their deaths. The name on the lips of everyone who mentioned women in history on Friday was Clara Campoamor (first picture), (1888-1972), a lawyer and feminist activist who fought fiercely for female rights; arguably, she’s the most famous of all Spain’s historical ladies. But scratch the surface and you’ll find plenty more who precede and follow her … [Read more...] about Spanish ‘herstory’ retold: The women who got lost in the past

The French Revolution, Karl Marx, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, John Locke etc. collectively resonated with those who sought fairness in society.From early on, Spanish style ‘anarchists’ believed strongly in the class struggle against the cabal of the church, the state and the landed elite.They saw these powerful … [Read more...] about Anarchy, Andalucia and free women: How women in Spain plotted to bring down the patriarchy
MADRID — Pedro Sánchez made feminism a banner as soon as he became prime minister nine months ago, and now he's doubling down on women's votes to keep him in office after Spain's election on April 28. With an openly anti-feminist party — the far-right Vox — on the rise, Sánchez's Socialists and their mainstream rivals trampled on each other to get the feminist seal of approval ahead of International Women’s Day on Friday. The country's robust feminist movement has called its second annual women's strike, with hundreds of thousands of protesters expected to take to the streets. Sánchez, an avowed feminist who beat the OECD record by putting women in 65 percent of his Cabinet positions last June, rushed through legislation on gender equality last week, such as an increase in paternity leave and rules on wage transparency aimed at reducing the gender pay gap in companies (the measures are still pending approval in Congress). “One of the … [Read more...] about Sánchez bets big on women in Spanish campaign
