Marcelino Núñez joins Brereton and Sierralta: the Championship begins, the long battle to reach the Prime Minister

This Friday begins the 2022-2023 season of the second division tournament in England, which receives the midfielder trained at UC, acquired by Norwich City. The competition, which has 46 dates for three promotions (two direct), has a value of 1,000 million euros.

The championship , the second category of football in England, is a competition as vast as it is demanding. There are 24 teams competing for 46 dates, seeking the two direct quotas to move up to the Premier League, plus a third that moves up through a playoffs. Basically, it’s the league that receives a Chilean player, who will have his first experience abroad: Marcelino Nunez.

As announced Jock , the midfielder trained at Universidad Católica was transferred to Norwich City for a sum of four million dollars, the value at which the player was valued. In this way, the national team makes the leap to a more demanding competition, beyond the fact that it is a second division tournament. In addition to having traditional clubs in England, it has an economic power that equals and exceeds the first leagues of the Old Continent that are outside the top, such as Portugal, Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium or Russia . The league has a total market value of €1 billion, according to Transfermarkt.

This Friday begins the 2022-2023 season of the championship, which is now experiencing a growing national presence. Meanwhile, in the Premier League, the reverse is happening, as there is no Chilean representation (as of today).

Norwich City, who will receive Núñez, are an “elevator” team. He won the championship 20-21 with 97 points, gaining promotion to the honor division. However, in the 21-22 Premier, they finished in last place, with 22 points. Out of 38 matches, he won only five. With this campaign, the return to the second division was quick. The Canaries have two main proper names in their squad, one in each area. The team’s gunner is the Finn Teemy Pukki (32) while the star goalkeeper is the Dutchman Tim Krull (34 years old) , with a long history in British football. The debut will be on Saturday, visiting Cardiff City (10:00 a.m. Chile).

Norwich already have a “Chilean blood” footballer in their ranks. Meet Sébastien Soto (22), front of a Chilean father and a Mexican mother, who represents the United States. He is in the U23 team of the institution, after his last loan spell at Livingston in Scotland. Previously, it had gone through Telstar in the Netherlands and Porto B in Portugal.

Ben and the Blackburns

The name of Ben Brereton Diaz continues to play to strengthen various clubs of the Old Continent. But in the meantime, the Chilean-English striker continues to work at Blackburn Rovers for the start of the local championship. It is the main offensive weapon of the Lancashire club. His numbers from the previous campaign guarantee the higher status he has achieved, coinciding with his stronger position in the Red. With 22 goals, he was in the top 5 of the top scorers in the 21-22 Championship. Despite this, it was not enough to advance to the third promotion playoffs.

In the immediate future, Blackburn have presented the numbers their players will wear in the campaign which is about to begin and Brereton Díaz keeps 22. The team’s new coach, former Denmark striker Jon Dahl Tomasson, wants to keep Brereton in the squad so he can fulfill the remaining year of his contract. Rovers make their debut on Saturday, hosting Queens Park Rangers (10:00 a.m.).

The Watford of Sierralta

complete the trio Francisco Sierralta, who remains at Watford. Much like Norwich, the Hornets had a great 20-21 campaign and earned promotion. But in Premier, it didn’t go well for them and they were suddenly sent back to the second category. Watford is a heavyweight cast in the category. In reality, They are the team with the highest market value in the league, with a price of 124.8 million euros.

The concern about the Chilean defender (25) is linked to the lack of continuity he brings. In the previous Premier, he recorded just 428 minutes played, in five games. He has dropped significantly from the 20-21 Championship, in which he added 2,207 minutes in 26 appearances.

Watford only play on Monday, hosting Sheffield United (3:00 p.m.).
