Ronaldo struggling with form

Cristiano Ronaldo is finding hard to replicate the sort of form that allowed him to win the Ballon d’Or last season.


The player has been struggling so far with injuries and had yet to find his best form.

Things have been so bad that the player was booed by his own fans against Malaga. Some pundits have argued that the player might be in decline and that there is no way that he could recover his best form. Indeed the player does not possess the same acceleration that he had in the past and has more and more problem in influencing games as he did in the past. More often than not, the player finds himself playing as a striker and cannot impact games as he did in his early career.

It is a bit early to say whether the Portuguese international is past his best as he has struggled with injuries this season. Continue reading Ronaldo struggling with form

REAL MADRID GET SECOND LA LIGA WIN

Real Madrid continued their superb start in the new campaign in the La Liga, defeating Celta Vigo 2-1 despite the absence of key players.


Isco missed the game as he picked up a knock on his ankle. The 24-year old was ruled out of the game, joining a host of other stars on the sidelines for Madrid. Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo remain yet to return to full fitness, even as the Champions League gets set to begin.

“He’s got some discomfort in his ankle. Last week, he took a knock on his ankle and he’s still not recovered. He left the training session and he won’t be with us tomorrow,” coach Zinedine Zidane said.

There are speculations that James Rodriguez and Raphael Varane could be on their way out of Madrid, and Zidane dropped a hint when he said: “Anything can happen until the 31st. Nobody is coming in, that’s certain, but it’s possible some may leave.”

Gareth Bales was on target as he returned to goal scoring during the La Liga opener last week. Real Madrid won Real Sociedad 3-0, with Bale grabbing a brace. Celta Vigo lost their opener to entrants Leganes, so they gave Real a tough fight before succumbing to another loss at the Bernabeu. Continue reading REAL MADRID GET SECOND LA LIGA WIN

Cristiano Ronaldo inspires his team to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp

Cristiano Ronaldo has inspired his team Real Madrid to an important win in the Classico to keep their hopes of the title alive. The Portuguese forward scored the winning goal with five minutes only to play to help Real Madrid clinch a decisive win in the title race.

Barcelona, who had a ten point lead at the top of the table before the match, found their lead cut off to only 7 points. Athletico Madrid is now second 6 points behind the leaders.

The game started well for Barcelona with their possession football. Madrid was keen to let them have control of the ball and play in front of the defense and then hit them on the counter-attack. Messi and Suarez were guilty of missing some chances during the first hour of the game. It was evident that the front players for Barcelona were tired following the international break compared to Benzema who was not involved with France.

It is, however, Barcelona who opened the scoring by Gerard Pique after a corner. His powerful header did not give Real Madrid’s keeper any chance. It was a deserved lead for Barcelona who has been controlling the game from the start.

However, Madrid regrouped after conceding and gradually became more dangerous. Benzema scored acrobatically on a great ball from Toni Kroos just 6 minutes after conceding.

Bale even scored a goal after a Ronaldo service, but it was disallowed because of a foul on Jordi Alba. Continue reading Cristiano Ronaldo inspires his team to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp

Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with the Spanish club which extends until 2018

The star of Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with the Spanish club which extends until 2018 and with a salary of €17 million; the Portuguese player is one of the highest paid footballers in the world along with Lionel Messi and his teammate Gareth Bale.

By the time that his contract with Real Madrid reaches it’s end, C.Ronaldo will be 33 year old. The 2014Ballond’or winner still has a few more seasons and years left in him before the Portuguese player has to start thinking about retiring; C.Ronaldo is already being linked with a number of clubs and leagues that he is being rumored to join after his days with Real Madrid conclude.

Manchester United was the first major club that C.Ronaldo joined before he became the most expensive player in the world when he signed with Real Madrid for a transfer fee of €94 million. During his time performing with the Premier League club, he lifted a number of major titles including: UEFA Champions League, Premier League and the FIFA Club World Cup just to name a few.

C.Ronaldo has recently been rumored on making a return to Manchester United as it might just be the last club that he performs in before deciding to retire.

After having scored 31 goals in 25 appearances, it really does not come as a surprise to know that many clubs are interested in signing the Portuguese player but the problem that emerges when signing a player such as: C.Ronaldo is the fact that his wages is just too much for clubs to offer the Portuguese attacker and only a handful of teams are able to match his salary.

One of those clubs is Manchester United as the club is regularly ranked as one of the most valued brands and teams in the world of sports and the Premier League club has recently been struggling trying to make some of their own stars prove their worth. Robin van Persie, RadamelFalcao and Wayne Rooney all have not managed to live up to the expectations that was created when the trio of attacking stars were formed.

The arrival of C.Ronaldo could possibly solve some of the issues that Manchester United has been going through but it remains uncertain if the Portuguese player will be able to continue scoring goals at a consistent basis and perform at a high level when he reaches the 33 years of age.
