The Portuguese left back Fabio Coentrao had better hope that somebody wants to sign him from Real Madrid, because he has effectively burnt his bridges with the club’s fans by issuing a statement about how unhappy he is and has been since arriving at the Bernabeu.
Coentrao said, “From the first day I do not think I was wanted here.
“Today it seems like everyone wants me to leave the club. I don’t know what I’ve done wrong.
“We must find a solution that is good for both the club and myself, so that no-one will lose out.” ......Read more...

Jose Mourinho chose not to face reporters at the press conference following last night’s match. Real Madrid had beaten Alcoyano 4-1 in the first leg of this Copa Del Rey encounter, and Mourinho gave some players a chance.

Christiano Ronaldo has now scored forty league goals after a thunderous double against Athletico Madrid. Madrid`s portugese number seven unleashed an unstoppable free kick to open the scoring. Athletico`s keeper, Coutois, looked bemused as Ronaldo`s shot changed direction in the air and sailed past him into the net.
Real Madrid`s nerves were jangling again when Falcao powered in a header to equalise soon after. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and it was Ronaldo again who sent Real back on the road to victory with a solo effort from way outside the penalty area. It was a similiar strike to the first, curling one way then the other and also dipping furiously to confound the keeper again. ......Read more...
