Some weeks after conquering the Glass of the Emperor, the group that directs Thorsten Fink has repeated triumph demolishing to the Yokohama Marine, champion of the J-League, in a clash of crazy that has finish with a tie to three in the statutory time and a surprising batch of penaltis.

After speaking of the title number 37 of the career of the manchego, that situates him to only three of Dani Alves like footballer more laureado of the history, the newspaper 'Sport' has revealed an information chocante that relates to the of Fuentalbilla with the FC Barcelona. The midfield player left does some years and does not lose of sight the actuality of the club, although according to the half in question, would have been more near of what seems.

According to the publication mentioned, the culés would have asked in the wintry market by the cession of the canterano, to the one who, supposedly, wanted for the second half of the season.
