The story of how Real Madrid tried to sign Diego Maradona
Is Real Madrid v Barcelona the biggest game in club history? And down here are my submissions. Ronaldo. Messi. Neymar, Suarez and Rodriguez. In the unlikely scenario that any Real Madrid v Barcelona contest ever needed revving up, there it is: on 25 October, a single match starring the two best players in the world, the World Cup's leading scorer, four of the five most expensive players in history and the debut of the most controversial footballer of his generation. And all this without the injured Welsh star Gareth Bale. An occasion like no other before? Hype can make giddy fools of us all, and this is a fixture that has never lacked subplots or superstars. From the era of Alfredo Di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas in the 1950s and 60s through to Johan Cruyff and Diego Maradona in the 1970s and 80s, these are clubs accustomed to foreign stars at their fulcrum. Madrid defined themselves a decade ago by their galacticos, the annual superstar arrivals under spendthrift club president Florentino Perez. Either side ...
Thanks Suman Bagale Bro for nominating me. Here is mine top 10 best players of all time (Balla balla yeta uti garera ) :p 10. Lev Yashin:- Yashin is considered the greatest goalkeeper of all time. He was nicknamed the 'Black Spider' as he was so agile ingoal. Yashin made over 150 penalty saves in his incredible career, also claiming 270 clean-sheets. 9. Alfredo Di Stefano:- Di Stefano was one of the most versatile forwards ever. He sometimes slipped into a midfield role adding depth to Real Madrid when he was at the club. 513 career goals is not a bad tally for a versatile forward. 8. Gerd Muller:- The greatest international goalscorer of all time, Muller averaged more than a goal per game for the Germans. His club career was nothing short of spectacular too, as he shined at Bayern. 7. Bobby Moore :- Moore was arguably one of the greatest defenders ever and Pele described him as the hardest defender to get past. Moore captained England to a rare World Cup triumph in 1966 and he also earned legendary stat ...
Mourinho defends Messi legacy Jose Mourinho has claimed Lionel Messi does not need to win the World Cup to be considered an all-time great. Messi, 27, led Argentina to the 2014 World Cup Final but they lost 1-0 to Argentina after extra time leading to questions about whether the player can be ranked alongside countryman Diego Maradona and Brazil's Pele. But Chelsea manager Mourinho, who had a tempestuous relationship with Barcelona during his time as Real Madrid manager between 2010 and 2013 has defended Messi. "It's easy to respect him when he has won but when he has lost, it's not so easy," Mourinho told Yahoo! Eurosport. "He is still a historical player. He does not need to be world champion to be a historical player, especially in this last decade. "For me Pele is Pele and Maradona is Maradona. It's not for me to compare players from different generations. Maybe because he is from the same generation as when I was born -- for me Maradona is Maradona." When asked if Messi should be considered a scapego ...

:D Chelsea in move for Serie A’s 2012/13 top scorer :D by NW | Edinson Cavani may be swapping Naples for the King’s Road after the Blues opened talks with Napoli Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that Chelsea have made enquiries as to the availability of the club’s cherished goal machine Edinson Cavani. It’s thought that the Uruguyan will form part of triumvirate of signings for the club ahead of the first season of Jose Mourinho’s second coming – Stevan Jovetic and Hulk are also reportedly incoming – and his talents will be well known to the Portuguese gaffer, who was managing Inter during his breakout season at Palermo. At Napoli Cavani has been a revelation, scoring at least 23 league times in each of his three seasons with the Azurri, and he already finds himself just 11 goals short of the club record currently held by legend-of-legends Diego Maradona. A natural finisher who relishes getting his head on balls in the mixer, Cavani could be just the kind of whole-hearted ...

Maradona: Messi better thanRonaldo despite Barcelona defeats The Argentina legend's stance remains the same regarding the two players, even though the Portuguesehas come out on top in theirrecent encounters By Chris Kvesa Mar 4, 2013 5:38:00 PM Diego Maradona says Lionel Messi remains thebest footballer in the world, despite Barcelona losing to Real Madrid twice last week. Ronaldo scored twice in los Blancos ' 3-1 success over the Blaugrana on February 12, and though Messi fired home an equaliser at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, the Portuguese's emergence from the bench ensured a 2-1 victory. "Messi cannot save every game for Barcelona," the former Al Wasl trainer told Marca . "Ronaldo is a wonderful player. He is in a fantastic shape, but Messi is still better, even after the defeat of his club. " The 52-year-old also revealed that he misses mentoring the Argentina star since he lost hisposition as Albiceleste coach following their World Cup 2010 exit. He added: "I love Messi, I would like to be his ...
I fail to understand the ppl who are criticising Messie afta two defeats against AC Milan nd Real Madrid last nite. I mean we r talking about 4 times world footballer of year nd in football we got to know that there is shift of power especially in European football, Barca won't be dominating European soccer in the next two years nd Lionel Messie's form is definately going to drop like other legends in football. Alfredo Di Stefano, Ferec Puskas, Pele, Duncan Edward, Johann Cruff, Franz Beckenbauer, Michael Platini, George Best, Dino Zoff, Bobby Charlton, Gert Muller, Diego Maradona, etc were also the most feared soccer in their era.

De Ballon d'Or should have gone to Ronaldo, instead of Messi, de world best! The Ballon d'Or went to the wrong guy. Lionel Messi most definitely is the world's best footballer. He will, for many fans of football become the best ever, eclipsing Pele and Diego Maradona, if he wins the World Cup with Argentina next year. But Messi shouldn't have picked up an unprecedented fourth consecutive world Player of the Year award at a glitzy FIFA gala on Monday night. The trophy that Barcelona's record-setting goal scorer bashfully lifted should instead have gone to Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi's downcast rival at Real Madrid. The award's electorate — journalistsand the coaches and captains of national teams — should have tamed their Messi addiction this time. Not because Ronaldo is a better footballer than Messi. He isn't. But because he stole away one of Messi's most important crowns in 2012. Winning the Spanish league title was a mammoth achievement, precisely because the towering obstacles Ronaldo and his Madrid ...
- Lionel Messi can break another footballing record on today by being named the world's best player for an unprecedented fourth time. The Barcelona and Argentina forward, who scored 91 goals in 2012, is favorite to win the FIFA Ballon d'Or prize ahead of club team-mate Andres Iniesta and his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, who complete the three-man shortlist in Zurich. A fourth straight title would lift Messi above FIFA World Player of the Year three-time winners Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo of Brazil. Since the original Ballon d'Or was launched in 1956 as a European award, Michel Platini, Johan Cruyff and Marco van Basten also earned a hat-trick of titles. Victory for Messi would fuel renewed debate over how his genius compares with Pele and Diego Maradona, whose careers were over or peaked before FIFA started its award in 1991. The South American greats were never eligible for the old Ballon d'Or run by France Football magazine. The awards merged in 2010. "(Michael) Jordan dominated his sp ...
Simeone: Falcao is crucial Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone recently spoke about his hopes and plans for the second half of the season, while praising the tireless work ethic of striker, Radamel Falcao. By Tom Conn In an interview with Argentinean newspaper, El Espectador, Simeone praised Falcao and stated that he was the best striker he’s had the honour of coaching. “[When I saw him in Argentina] He never tired of scoring goals, it was crazy. I’d never seen such a thing, because he is like that; he has hunger, the need to grow and improve and he knows that this is his strength.” Simeone then discussed his team, and how they have come together. “The players have made a commitment and we all stand together behind this idea. We play for second or third place. Mourinho said the league is impossible and if Real Madrid says it, I won’t comment any further.” Simeone then discussed, as an Argentinean, who felt was better between Barcelona’s Leo Messi or Argentine legend, Diego Maradona. ...

Diego Maradona has voiced his opinion that Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo can never reach an equivalent level as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, OIH, (born 5 February 1985), commonly known as Cristiano Ronaldo, is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a winger or striker for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and is the captain of the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo became the most expensive footballer in history after moving from Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer worth £80 million (€93.9 million/$131.6 million). In addition, his contract with Real Madrid, in which he is paid €12 million per year, makes him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world, and his buyout clause is valued at €1 billion as per his contract. In 2012, Diego Maradona declared that Ronaldo was "the best player on the planet."
“For me, it’s more important than the Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid. If they invite me to watch the Clasico, like they have done before, I might think about it. But, if they invite me to the watch Manchester City vs Manchester United, then I won’t think a second about it. I would love to watch this fixture." Diego Maradona
I am not a Barca or Real Madrid fan. I am actually Juventus fan for the past 16 years!!!. The most silly argument among soccer fans is 'who is better Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi'. Well, I can name at least 100 players who are much much much better than Christiano Ronaldo in the history of the soccer; but only 2 players who are better than messi (Diego Maradona and Pele)... If Messi won one the World Cup once, he will be the best who ever played soccer. I watch soccer not because of barca or real madrid or even 'Juventus', I watch soccer just to have good time with Messi.
