Ancelotti to pick Suarez or Cavani for Real Madrid?

Posted on June 18, 2013 by admin

We are expecting the announcement of Carlo Ancelotti as the new manager of Real Madrid this week, and the Italian will have to get straight down to work. One of his first tasks at the club will be to decide on which of the excellent Uruguayan international strikers he wants to bring to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium this summer.

It is not an easy choice, to be fair, because they are very different players, although both have got excellent ability and proud goal scoring records. Luis Suarez scored 33 goals for Liverpool last season, 23 of those coming in his 33 Premier League games. He also provided 11 assists and has great speed, technical ability and works tirelessly for his team. He scored a stunning free kick against Spain on Sunday and has the knack of creating and scoring goals from out of nothing.

There is a major concern, however, over his discipline. He was banned for 10 games by the English football authorities for biting the arm of a Chelsea player. Incredibly, it was not his first time. While playing for the Dutch club Ajax in 2010, Suarez bit another opponent and received a ban. He has been in trouble for racially abusing Patrice Evra and has been accused of diving and cheating numerous times. After the tarnishing of Real Madrid’s image during Mourinho’s turbulent time at the club, signing Suarez might not be the best idea.

Cavani is different, but equally effective. Tall and strong, he is not as mobile as Suarez, but he also works his socks off all the time. In the last three seasons at Napoli he has recorded figures of 33 goals from 47 games, 33 from 48 and 38 from 43 last time.

Both players are 26-years old and will cost a lot of money. Cavani could be around 10 million more than Suarez, but that is unlikely to make much difference to the decision. Both players have spoken of their wish to play for Madrid, so it is really just a matter of picking one. Over to you Carlo!
