✒ It was more difficult than the scoreline suggests. Real Madrid beat Almeria 4-1 away from home to stay on top of La Liga and make it 20 wins in a row in all competitions. Perfect preparation for the Club World Cup, but a tougher test than they would have wanted. Madrid fly out to Morocco on Sunday looking to add a world championship to the Champions League crown claimed last May in Lisbon. And in their last Liga match of 2014, Carlo Ancelotti's men were forced to dig deep. In the end, two late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo made it look a lot easier than it was, but Almeria missed a penalty (Iker Casillas' first spot-kick save in La Liga since 2011) at 2-1. The game was wide open until the Portuguese slotted home the third following a fine move involving both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. With Almeria squeezing spaces in the midfield and pressing persistently, Madrid missed the quality, touch and passing of injured pair James Rodriguez and Luka Modric. Ancelotti finally withdrew Benzema five minutes be ...

Cristiano Ronaldo set two personal milestones as he led Real Madrid to a record-equalling 18th-straight win on a historic night at the Bernabeu. The Portugal forward has now scored more hat-tricks than any other La Liga player after completing his 23rd treble with his 200th Spanish top-flight goal. He put Madrid ahead by drilling in a disputed penalty, after he had been fouled under seemingly minimal contact. And his clinical volley and guided finish moved Real four points clear. Ronaldo, who is the favourite to win the 2014 Ballon d’Or for his performances this year, was given a standing ovation as he was substituted towards the end of another memorable performance. The 29-year-old had scored the same amount of hat-tricks as legendary Madrid forward Alfredo Di Stefano and Telmo Zarra of Athletic Bilbao, and eclipsed their tallies when he steered in Marcelo’s cross. And it also meant he reached his second century of La Liga goals in his 178th match for Real. Ronaldo illuminated the Bernabeu in the fin ...
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a record-breaking 23rd Primera Division hat trick while Real Madrid equalled the Spanish record of 18 successive victories after beating Celta Vigo 3-0 on a memorable night at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo opened the scoring with a controversially- awarded penalty that he won himself in the 36th minute before netting twice more in the second half as he moved onto 200 La Liga goals for Madrid -- the fastest any player has achieved the feat -- having only joined the Spanish giants in 2009. The Portugal superstar's treble saw him go clear of Telmo Zarra and Alfredo di Stefano for the most Primera Division hat-tricks, while also taking him to 23 goals in just 14 league games this season. The victory also saw Madrid move a step closer to another berth in the record books. Having last weekend broken their club record of 16 successive wins, the European champions have now equalled the all-time record by a Spanish team of 18 successive victories, set by Frank Rijkaard's Barcelona side in 2005-06. ...
Real Madrid top themselves Real Madrid made club history on Saturday night as Los Blancos recorded their 16th straight win in all competitions with a 2-1 triumph over Málaga at La Rosaleda. Cristiano Ronaldo assisted on both Karim Benzema's first half goal and Gareth Bale's strike in the second half to push Real's total goal total to 59 on the season, an average of almost four a game. Manager Carlo Ancelotti opted to play a 4-2-3-1 formation to start so it was Benzema up top as the lone striker and an attacking midfield of Cristiano Ronaldo on the left, James on the middle and Gareth Bale on the right. Toni Kroos and Isco anchored in as holding midfielders while in defense it was a full-strength back four of Dani Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo in front of goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Clasico boasted Europe's most expensive lineups, study reveals Real Madrid's meeting with Barcelona at the Bernabeu last month saw the most expensive collection of players on the field of any match in Europe this season, according to a CIES Football Observatory study. The clasico in October saw talent worth 690 million euros take to the field, despite the absence of the injured Gareth Bale, who was reported to have cost Madrid 100 million euros when he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013. Additionally, Barcelona did not pay fees for Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Pedro or Sergi Roberto, who all featured in their side's 3-1 defeat, while Madrid captain Iker Casillas also emerged through his club's academy. REALMadrid, whose side featured big money signings including Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez, contributed 424 million euros to the total, with Luis Suarez and Neymar contributing the bulk of Barca's 267 million euros. Manchester City's 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea in September was ...

Are Manchester United at risk of losing David De Gea to Real Madrid? David De Gea's stock is on the rise, which has predictably led to speculation that United's keeper could return to Spain to play for Real Madrid. David De Gea's rise to becoming one of the best goalkeepers in the world is tinged with risk for Manchester United fans. The better he gets, the more likely he is to return to Spain. United fans were saddened by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in 2009, and while executive vice chairman Ed Woodward is adamant that United won't be beaten on price by any club in the world, the appeal of playing for football's most successful club in your home city is clear. De Gea's stock rose further after Iker Casillas was again at fault for his country as Spain were defeated in Slovakia on Thursday. De Gea was always likely to make his competitive debut against Luxembourg on Sunday and he did that in a 4-0 win. Casillas was hugely popular in his homeland, but the wish of many Spaniards is for ...

The legendary Franz Beckenbauer’s announcement shook the world; the aliens have dared us to a game of football over the fate of the earth. Since then, project Samsung Mobile Galaxy 11 has been initiated. Beckenbauer, the coach, has recruited world top-class football players to build the best team ever built. What we have today is a video of the recruiting process. See how the players became a part of the Earth’s ultimate football team, Galaxy 11. As in the video, the completed Galaxy 11 roster consists of 13 world’s greatest football talent. 1. Leo Messi (Argentina; Captain) 2. Mario Götze (Germany) 3.

Ojja kuwulira!!! Guwedde: Real Madrid 4(1) - (1)1 Atletico Madrid. **Real Madrid came from behind to claim the Champions League crown in extra time at the expense of Atletico Madrid. **Diego Godin profited from an Iker Casillas error to head Atletico in front after Gareth Bale had fired wide. **Real fought back after the break and Sergio Ramos finally broke Atletico's resolve in the 93rd minute. **Bale put Real in front before Marcelo scored a third and Cristiano Ronaldo added a penalty to seal victory and a 10th European Cup for Real.
These two Madrid sides have served up a meaty first half as befits a derby, Diego Godín's clever header outdoing Iker Casillas. Diego Costa's departure so far not costing Los Rojiblancos, and it has to be said that Cristiano Ronaldo, himself only just back from injury, is not his usual self so far.
Xabi Alonso out, Cristiano Ronaldo in, Iker Casillas in, players with experience in Champions League final

Things To Expect From Semi Finalists "Real Madrid's shoddy back line will leave them vulnerable" Real Madrid's awesome attacking power has served them well so far. No team in the competition has more goals this season. They have scored 32 times in the Champions League and have been able to devastate opponents due to their immense firepower. As the game against Borussia Dortmund showed, however, Madrid are in danger when their attackers have an off-night. With no Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale were tamed easily. Dortmund scored twice and should have had more. Madrid are lucky to be in the last four because their defence cannot be relied upon. When they are expected to see out a game instead of vanquishing the opposition with relentless attacks, Real Madrid are in peril. There is a lack of organisation in front of Iker Casillas with neither Sergio Ramos nor Pepe capable of adequately commanding a defence. Moreover, there are mistakes aplenty in the Real ranks. Pepe and Xabi ...
Borussia Dortmund GIVE Real Madrid A Champions League SCARE BUT FALL SHORT Wednesday 9 April 2014 = Real Madrid edged past Borussia Dortmund despite slumping to a 2-0 defeat to advance to the Champions League semi-finals and stay on track for a tenth European Cup final victory. Two first-half goals by Marco Reus, both coming from Real mistakes, gave Dortmund a deserved lead as Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who had a penalty saved in the 17th minute, were left mesmerised by the German club’s frantic pace. Real, with the top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo left on the bench due to a minor knee injury, saw their 3-0 advantage from the first leg almost evaporate in a disastrous first half for them. “That was too much suffering and I think it was deserved,” said the goalkeeper Iker Casillas. “But from time to time it’s good to have this kind of wake-up call that reminds us it’s not always easy, and especially not in the Champions League. “It is better that it happened in this game than in the decisive match ...

Los Blancos HAMMER SCHALKE IN GERMANY Real Madrid virtually secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday night with a stunning 6-1 demolition of Schalke. The nine-time winners had only won once before in 25 trips to Germany but victory was never in doubt at the Veltins-Arena with Real's most potent attacking weapons coming to the fore. Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo all scored twice as an insatiable Madrid left Schalke requiring a miracle at the Bernabeu in three weeks' time despite Klaas- Jan Huntelaar scoring the goal of the night in time added-on. Schalke won a corner in the first minute and nearly took the lead but captain Benedikt Howedes' header from distance drifted wide of Iker Casillas' right-hand post. But Real were seeing more of the ball and soon had the lead thanks to that potent attacking trio in the 13th minute. Bale cut in on the right and found Ronaldo whose backheel took a deflection which found Benzema on the penalty spot and he made n ...

Cristiano Ronaldo has been chosen as the Spanish top flight’s ‘Most Valuable Player for the 2012-13 season, but Lionel Messi has won the more prestigious awards for La Liga’s Best Player and best attacker after having guided Barcelona to the title despite recurring injury issues. Diego Simeone, Sergio Ramos, Andres Iniesta, Iker Casillas, Thibaut Courtois, Asier Illarramendi and Gerard Deulofeu were among those also honoured at a ceremony in Madrid on Monday night, which took place almost six months after the 2012-13 campaign ended.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo saw Real Madrid all but book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League after beating 10-man Juventus 2-1 at the Bernabeu. Los Blancos produced a far from convincing performance even after Giorgio Chiellini was given a straight red card on 48 minutes for an elbow on Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward gave Madrid the lead four minutes into the game but Spanish striker Fernando Llorente equalised after 23 minutes before Ronaldo restored the hosts' lead five minutes later from the penalty spot. Iker Casillas was called into action barely a minute after kick-off, tipping a long-range shot from Claudio Marchisio over the bar. But it was Madrid who took the lead as Ronaldo beat the offside trap to get onto the end of a throughball from Angel Di Maria and calmly rounded Gianluigi Buffon to slot into an empty net. Juventus did not drop off after the goal and Carlos Tevez had two shots off target, with Martin Caceres also volleying over before Llorente levelled after 23 minute ...
Win or lose I'm still a Real Madrid fan, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the Best Player and Iker Casillas is still the best goalkeeper
Ronaldo brace gifts Madrid win Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first half to give Real Madrid a 2-1 win over Juventus in a Uefa Champions League game at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Gareth Bale was missing from the starting XI as he continued his return from injury. Angel Di Maria, Ronaldo and Karim Benzema played in the front three, with Iker Casillas coming in to replace Diego Lopez between the posts. Tapped in Carlo Ancelotti’s men took the lead in the 4th minute when Di Maria slid a ball through to Ronaldo inside the area, and the Portugal international coolly rounded Gianluigi Buffon and scored. But midway through the half, Juventus drew level when Paul Pogba headed back a Martin Caceres cross at the far post to Llorente, who tapped in for an easy equaliser. Penalty Almost immediately though, the Merengues got themselves back in front from the spot. Giorgio Chiellini pulled down Sergio Ramos inside the area, and Ronaldo smashed home the resulting penalty from 12 yards. The first half e ...

Florentino Perez : RONALDO A 'ONCE A CENTURY' PLAYER The Real Madrid chief stressed the importance of the forward to the club, backtracked on Iker Casillas comments and shed light on Mesut Ozil's exit Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is a "once a century" player. The former Manchester United forward signed a new contract to keep him tied to the Santiago Bernabeu until 2018. Perez insists Ronaldo, 28, is worth every penny but stresses the importance of having quality around him, name-checking summer signings Gareth Bale, Isco and Asier Illarramendi. "We are privileged to have Cristiano in our club," he told the Spanish TV show Jugones. "He’s one of those players that only comes along once a century and we are lucky enough to have him in our team. "But the presence of other foreign players like Bale, the best Spanish players like Isco and Illarramendi and academy players is also vital to our project." The Madrid chief also retracted comments he made about unsettled go ...
Ill-fated Casillas injured again September 18, 2013 9:53am ISTANBUL - Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas was forced off in the 15th minute of Tuesday's (Wednesday, PHL time) 6-1 Champions League Group B romp at Galatasaray after sustaining a rib injury in a collision with teammate Sergio Ramos. Medical staff taped up the affected area but it quickly became clear the Real captain would be unable to continue and he was replaced by Diego Lopez. Coach Carlo Ancelotti told reporters that he hoped Casillas would recover in 3-to-4 days but Spanish media reported the 32-year-old could be sidelined for two weeks. "Iker had bad luck, that happens in football," said Real's hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo. "He did something to his ribs. He was down in the dumps but he will recover soon." Casillas has barely played since Real and Spain teammate Alvaro Arbeloa accidentally kicked his hand during a King's Cup match in January and broke a bone.

I'll never forget the day I saw Iker Casillas & Cristiano Ronaldo.
Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo, nominated for the 2013 Golden Foot Award.
Carlo Ancelotti's first match in charge of Real Madrid will be against . . . Bournemouth. Bournemouth, known as the Cherries, have played most of their recent football in the third and fourth tiers of English football and last season won promotion to the Championship, the second tier. It's safe to say the visit of Madrid, with first team supposedly in tow, will be the highlight of their season, and a match that will live long in the club's history for years to come. Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Iker Casillas all playing in their stadium. A real one-off, a match to remember. Bournemouth won't be making the Champions League anytime soon and probably won't be winning promotion to the Premier League, either. It should be a momentous occasion for Bournemouth's loyal fans, albeit a relatively small band. It should be. Though the match, albeit still a massive coup for the the club, has hit the headlines for the wrong reasons over in England, with Bournemouth deciding to charge a whopping 60 pounds for adults a ...
Jese Rodriguez : "Maybe last year club thought that they don't need to have more youth players and Mourinho thought he needed to sign players from outside the club," he told AS. "I think maybe I deserved more opportunities. Anyway this was what Mourinho thought and he isn't here now, so let's what will happen in the future and what the new coach thinks." "[Alberto] Toril, as with [Aitor] Karanka, has been instrumental in my career thanks to his work this season and has taught me a lot training with me every day. "I have a very good relationship with all the first team players - Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Alvaro Morata, Xabi Alonso. I've spent the most time with Ramos. "I look up to Cristiano Ronaldo in the dressing room. It's impossible not to. He's one of Best Players in the world and I have a lot to learn from him." -RK

: CR7 Is A Know-It-All When Real Madrid were flying under Jose Mourinho two seasons ago, and Cristiano Ronaldo was laying waste to La Liga’s defences, the two Portuguese men seemed thick as thieves. But as Mourinho’s grip on Los Blancos began to fray, and the team relinquished their hard-fought league title and floundered in Europe yet again, the received wisdom of Mou and CR7’s buddy-buddy relationship proved something different. They may not have gone their separate ways like Mou did with Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and eventually even Pepe. But it was clear their shared nationality was no longer an immutable bond. And now that The Special One has taken up his old office at Chelsea, he has acknowledged that there was one major sticking point between him and Ronaldo. While he accepts that CR7 was great to work due to his ability to star within the system, Mourinho says that the player’s inability to accept constructive criticism or tactical advice was a hindrance. In effect, Mourinho has accused ...
I will be Chelsea manager by the end of the week! Jose heads to Stamford Bridge with parting shot for Ronaldo as Madrid's dressing-room war is exposed at bitter end By PETE JENSON Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will take charge of Chelsea later this week. 'I'm going to London on Monday and at the end of the week I will be the manager of Chelsea,' he said to leading Spanish TV football show Punto Pelota. 'I feel the people there love me and in life you have to look for that. 'Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you.' Never have the words ‘the bitter end’ been more apt as Mourinho took charge of his last game at Real Madrid before returning to Chelsea. He left the Bernabeu on Saturday night without saying goodbye to Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Iker Casillas, having suggested all three had deliberately ruled themselves out of his last game in charge. And as if to underline the divisions, Alvaro Arbeloa — one of the players who had stayed loyal to Mourinho in wha ...

Real Madrid-Osasuna Preview: Los Merengues eye winning end to Mourinho era The Portuguese coach will bring his three-year reign at the Santiago Bernabeu to a close on Saturday By Karthick Arvinth 31 May 2013 09:15:00 Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo could miss the home encounter against Osasuna as he continues to manage a back problem. Raphael Varane (knee) and Sami Khedira (suspension) are both sidelined, while Pepe, Xabi Alonso and Kaka are all doubts. However, goalkeeper Iker Casillas and defenders Sergio Ramos and Fabio Coentrao should be available after missing the 3-3 draw at Real Sociedad through injury. Osasuna defender Damia is suspended after picking up his 15th booking of the season in the win over Sevilla but midfielder Nano is available after serving a one-match ban. Lolo, Miguel Flano, Sisi, Anthony Annan and Nino are all out injured for the visitors, who have already secured their top-flight status for next season. DID YOU KNOW?

Words were exchanged. Some involved apologies and others made matters more heated. Let's have a look at what some of Spanish football's personalities said about Mourinho. Florentino Pérez: "We have the best coach in the world with an impressive track record, and we demand he be treated with respect." Karanka: "I've had some exceptional experiences and people don't know him at all." Cristiano Ronaldo: "Every great coach has to triumph in different leagues and he's done it." Xabi Alonso: "There's something about him that makes you want to play and fight for him." Essien: "He's like a father to me." Iker Casillas: There's no personal relationship. We only talk about football. Manolo Preciado: "When you see how he works and motivates people, that's what leads to success. He is the number one." Pep Guardiola: "In this [press] room, he's the f**king boss, he's the f**king master and I don't want to compete even for a second." Tito Vilanova: "If we're going to talk about referees, then let's talk about everythi ...

Manchester United are putting together a megabucks offer to tempt Cristiano Ronaldo back from Real Madrid, say the Star in what, they promise, is a "World Exclusive". The deal will cost the English club £55m and force their sponsors-in-waiting Chevrolet to make the Portuguese forward their global ambassador for complicated reasons the Mill does not fully understand. And that's not the only rumoured Manchester-Madrid transfer action in Friday's gossip columns, with news that Madrid have not only identified United's David De Gea as their next goalkeeper but that they want to sign him this summer, even though the current No1 Iker Casillas is only 31 and has several years of impressive shot-stopping in his lithe young legs yet. United have lined up Stoke's Asmir Begovic as a replacement.

Keeper Casillas in Real party Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has been named in the Spanish club's squad for Tuesday night's Champions League last-16 meeting with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Casillas has not played for Jose Mourinho's side since fracturing his left hand in their 5-0 win over Valencia in January and only returned to training on Thursday. Spain's World Cup and double European Championship winner had wrestled back his starting place from replacement Antonio Adanbefore the injury but that setback forced Mourinho into signing fellow 31-year-old goalkeeper Diego Lopez from Sevilla. Lopez looks likely to continue in goal in Manchester but Casillas could find himself on the replacements' bench with Madrid due to arrive in the north-west on Monday before training at City's Etihad Stadium to continue preparations for the second leg. Real and United drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu in the first leg after Cristiano Ronaldo cancelled out Danny Welbeck's early header. Madrid defeated arch rivals Barce ...

The home side replied just 10 minutes later through United old boy Cristiano Ronaldo who rose to meet a cross from Angel Di Maria and nod the ball past the excellent David De Gea. Diego Lopez - 7 Stand-in for injured Iker Casillas and looked nervous. Lucky to get away with an ill-advised challenge for a cross as Welbeck almost nicked past him. Good saves in the end.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has nailed his colours to the mast regarding the Messi/Ronaldo debate. Wenger says that Lionel Messi was lucky to win the 2012 Ballon d’Or, and that if it were up to him, he would have given football’s highest individual award to someone like Iker Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo or Andres Iniesta, who had starred in title winning teams. But Wenger also says he thinks that Messi is “from another planet”, and that Ronaldo was simply unlucky to be born in the same era as the little Argentine, “the best in the world.” Asked if he would have picked Messi for the Ballon d’or, Wenger told the Arsenal website: "No, not this year. "Messi is from a different planet. He's certainly the Best Player in the world, the best I've ever seen, but I believe that this year he has really been rewarded for what he did individually, rather than what he won for his team. "For once he has not been in a team that won absolutely everything. He did not win the Champions League, he did not win th ...

Jose Mourinho welcomes Sergio Ramos, Fabio Coentrao and Angel Di Maria back to his line-up for Real Madrid's Liga clash against Granada after all three were suspended for Wednesday's 1-1 Copa del Rey draw with Barcelona, while Cristiano Ronaldo has shrugged off an ankle injury to also start.

HONOURS EVEN AT THE BERNABEU Real Madrid and Barcelona have it all to play for in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final after an entertaining 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night. Both sides had plenty of chances during an enthralling first half but the opener did not arrive until five minutes into the second period when Cesc Fabregas latched onto Lionel Messi's through ball to fire past Diego Lopez. Madrid got the equaliser their performance merited nine minutes from time when the game's outstanding performer, Raphael Varane, rose to head home Mesut Ozil's cross. The big news before the match was the decision of Madrid coach Jose Mourinho to hand a debut to goalkeeper Lopez after he rejoined the club from Sevilla last week as cover for the injured Iker Casillas. But it was Barca's second-choice goalkeeper, Jose Manuel Pinto, who was first into the action, clawing away Cristiano Ronaldo's dipping free-kick from under his crossbar. Barca began to take control after that early scare and the ...

Jose Mourinho was under more pressure on Saturday when his misfiring Real Madrid side were held to a 0-0 draw at rock-bottom Osasuna, a result which left the champions 15 points behind leaders Barcelona. Madrid, devoid of any creativity, missed the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo, who had scored five of his side's eight goals in the last two games, and their desperate state was highlighted when substitute Kaka was sent-off in the second half. Real Madrid are on 37 points in third place, four behind Atletico Madrid and they could trail Barcelona by 18 points on Sunday if the runaway leaders defeat fifth-place Malaga. "I liked my team's attitude, Raul Albiol and Fabio Coentrao have come in and played well and the others have done a job. It's not easy to create here, we did enough to score but we didn't make many chances," said Mourinho. The Portuguese coach was questioned about captain Iker Casillas, who he recently controversially dropped, but refused to say if he would be in the team on Tuesday against Valenc ...
Five questions on why the 2012 FIFA FIFPro XI was dominated by La Liga Samrin Hasib , January 9 2013, When Wesley Sneijder was snubbed in 2010, debates about the FIFPro XI started raging. This time, the controversial selection of 11 La Liga players has raised more questions than ever. First of all, in the line up, Iker Casillas wasthe goalkeeper. The back four consisted of Dani Alves, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo. Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta were the midfield trio. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Falcao made up the front three. 1) Do FIFA and the voters focus more on international competitions? The two teams which contested the Uefa Champions League final contain a total of zero players in the team. Both these teams beat the best teams Spain has to offer. One ofthe two dominated the midfield in their pair of clashes in the semi-final. However, the Champions League is of course a club competition. The professionals who vote perhaps give more importance to international comp ...

Andrea Pirlo, Didier Drogba, Robin Van Persie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic made up a star-studded final top 10 for the calendar year of 2012. After the awards ceremony, Fifa has released an intriguing list of the full votes for the award, which is decided based on decisions made by international coaches, captains and a selection of media representatives from each member nation. The voting list reveals some decisions that would raise few eyebrows, but other ones that can be considered as particularly surprising. In England’s votes, both manager Roy Hodgson and captain Steven Gerrard voted for the brilliant Messi as their winner, with Ronaldo in second. They differed with their decisions for third-place, though, as the ...
Cristiano Ronaldo has pleaded for Real Madrid supporters to stick together following the latest expression of dissent shown towards Jose Mourinho from the Santiago Bernabeu faithful. The coach's name was heckled when it was announced prior to the Blancos' 4-0, Copa del Rey victory over Celta Vigo, with fans particularly unhappy with Iker Casillas' recent exclusion from the side and their poor Liga form. While Mourinho was absent at the post-match press conference, Ronaldo - who struck a hat trick in a superb individual display - called on fans to aid the team's pursuit of trophies by displaying their support in a positive manner. "We must stand united and weneed the fans to support us, there is still a lot to win," he told reporters.

A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE. 3 REASONS WHY MOURINHO DOESN'T RATE CASSILLAS Iker Casillas has fallen dramatically this season in Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho's estimation. La Sexta says there are three main reasons why Mourinho has lost confidence in Casillas, which now includes the coach viewing Sergio Ramos ahead of the club captain as the locker room's main leader. Mourinho and his staff have been left frustrated by Casillas' refusal to work on the defects in his game they've highlighted in recent months. He's also unhappy with the goalkeeper's general attitude in training. Secondly, Mourinho simply has been unimpressed by Casillas' form this season and believes his performances haven't been good enough. And thirdly, Casillas, from Mou's point of view, is failing in his leadership duties and isn't as involved with his teammates as is expected from a captain. Ramos is now regarded by the coach as the squad's biggest voice. Meanwhile, Casillas snubbed Real teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ballon d'Or vo ...

FOOTBALL:- [LA-LIGA] Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos believes that luck abandoned his side during the 2-2 Liga draw against Espanyol on Sunday. Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Fabio Coentrao looked to have given Los Blancos a vital win, but a late Juan Albin header snatched a point for the visitors. However, experienced centre-back Ramos is adamant the team was just unfortunate to not secure three points after dominating most of the match. "The draw today was not a matter of attitude, from the first minute we were looking for the victory," the 26-year-old told reporters. "Now it is easy to draw conclusions, and in football the result counts. Physically we're fine and the problem today was not a lack of attitude, and the coach may think the same. "We've had luck in other games, but not today."

Old Trafford youngster on Bernabeu radar. Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move to sign ManUnited keeper David De Gea according to CalcioMercato . The Spanish giants seemingly see the young Old Trafford custodian as an ideal long termreplacement for Iker Casillas and indeed a player of sufficient quality to keep the Bernabeu captain on his toes. Man United spent £17m to bring the 21 year old keeper from Atletico Madrid just over ayear ago but thus far this term Sir Alex Ferguson has preferred Dane Anders Lindegaard over the Spaniard, handing De Gea three Premier League starts from the opening seven matches of the campaign. A move back to La Liga may well tempt the young goalkeeper and Real Madrid areclearly adept at luring players from Man United to the Spanishcapital, having signed the likes of David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo in the recent past. De Gea has already made a few notable errors as United keeperand Ferguson may well feel that Lindegaard is the more reliable ke ...

Casillas: I would pick Cristiano Ronaldo over Messi Iker Casillas has made it clear that he would pick Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo over Barcelona attacker Lionel Messi if he had to make a choice between the duo. Jose Mourinho stated after this weekend's 2-2 Clasico draw that people shouldn't compare the two as they're both from another planet, but Casillas has insisted that he prefers the Portugal star over the Argentine forward. "I'd choose Cristiano over Messi because he's a player who gives us so much every season and he's a player I spend time with every day," Casillas told Cadena Cope. "I know him, know who he is, know how he trains, know what he wants and where he wants to get to." The shot-stopper also had his say on the difficult relationship between Sergio Ramos and Jose Mourinho, but refused to side with either of the two parties. "Whose side was I on? On Sergio's, supporting a team-mate who was going through a hard time. And the boss' because he's looking out for the team. "It's not ...

Real Madrid skipper Casillas BLANKED Ronaldo winner The relationship between Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo has again come into question after victory over Manchester City. Ronaldo's late, late Champions League winner sent the Santiago Bernabeu wild with fans, teammates and coach Jose Mourinho celebrating crazily. However, Casillas did not flinch, with TVE revealing footage last night of the goalkeeper not celebrating, or even making any gesture at all, as the stadium erupted. My take Real Madrid is sitting on a keg of gun powder.expect an eruption very soon..
Real Madrid 3-2 Manchester City  A tense opening half brought some great saves out of Joe Hart as City looked to be clinging onto the game but a fantastic run and pass from Yaya Toure set Edin Dzeko clear to slot past Iker Casillas in the second period. It didn't take Madrid too long to get level, though, with left-back Marcelo the scorer, cutting in on his right foot to see a deflected shot loop over Joe Hart's despairing dive. With a little under 10 minutes to go, it looked like City might have stolen three points when Kolarov's free kick from wide on the right flew all the way in but again Madrid came back, this time substitute Karim Benzema turning Matija Nastasic and rifling a shot into the bottom corner. And, with a minute left on the clock, Cristiano Ronaldo finally came good for Madrid, cutting in to shoot, with Hart apoplectic at his captain, Vincent Kompany, for ducking out of the way as the shot flew past.
Come kick-off, the cameras will train their lenses on the vast array of talent on the field - Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Mesut Ozil,Karim Benzema,Iker Casillas,Sergio Ramos,Angel Di Maria,Luka Modric, Sammy Khedira,kaka,Gonzalo Higuain ,Yaya Toure, David Silva,Sergio Aguero,Carlos Tevez,Edin Dzeko,Mario Balotelli,Samir Nasri,Gareth Barry,Vincent company,Maicon,Gael clichy - the list goes on.

This is the first time Manchester City F C playing against Real Madrid C F . Such a big match ! A win for city( what I want) will prove a lot to the football world though it will not be an easy task against a team built around Cristiano Ronaldo one of the greatest player of the game City have to control speed stars such as Ángel Di María, Mesut Özil, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo very carefully.

So going for the always wanted city win but I would not mind if Real shares point . Real Madrid 1 - 2 Manchester City , is my prediction As my point of view : starting xi Iker Casillas = Joe Hart Álvaro ...
Iker Casillas poses in a photo with Cristiano Ronaldo: “the only one who is sad is Benzema”
Cristiano Ronaldo's public show of discontent at Real Madrid has left supporters guessing if he was upset with team-mates – for a lack of moral support in his battle to be recognised as the Best Player on the planet – or with the club's director general Jose Angel Sanchez in his battle to regain his status as the world's best-paid. His comments after Sunday's win over Granada came just four days ahead of the closing of the transfer window in Russia, home to one of the only clubs currently paying its players more than Real Madrid. FC Anzhi are currently giving striker Samuel Eto'o €20m (£16m) a year. The timing of Ronaldo's comments increased speculation that the Spanish champions' failure to keep him at the top of the wages league – he also trails Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – was at the heart of the "sadness" he said he felt despite reaching the milestone of 150 goals in 150 games at the weekend. Ronaldo earns €13m a year and the planned negotiations to improve his contract in the su ...

Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas have scored 57 goals between them this season.
Real Madrid closed in on their first Primera Division title in four years with a 3-0 victory over Sevilla. A bright start from the hosts was rewarded after 19 minutes as Cristiano Ronaldo slotted home his 57th goal of the season. However, Sevilla then enjoyed a decent spell and passed up to glorious opportunities to equalise as Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo both fired over when one-on-one with Iker Casillas. Any nerves among the hosts were settled quickly after the break, though, as Karim Benzema finished twice at the back post after fine crosses from Angel Di Maria and Sergio Ramos. And it means, should Barcelona lose at Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, Madrid will officially be crowned Spanish champions for the 32nd time.

Bayern came to Madrid with a 2-1 lead, but Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have put the home side on its way to the final with two early goals, but just like its Spanish rival Barcelona the evening before, Madrid faltered and Arjen Robben's 27th-minute penalty leveled the score over two legs at 3-3. In the penalty shoot-out, Manuel Neuer saved from Ronaldo and Kaka to put Bayern on course after it had scored its opening two kicks, but counterpart Iker Casillas denied Toni Kroos and Philipp Lahm to drag Madrid back into it.
