Cristiano Ronaldo – His Campaigning Seems to be Working in Spain

Posted on 3 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

We might hear from Cristiano Ronaldo time and time again that he doesn’t care about awards, only about success with Real Madrid. However, he usually contradicts himself by talking about himself, about Sepp Blatter, about FIFA and the Ballon d’Or. It seems that all the words he’s been using have sunk in with La Liga officials, inventing an award especially for him, separate from the rest, that were given to players who were voted to it. More

Real Madrid – Cristiano Ronaldo Injury Can End Their Season

Posted on 26 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

A Gareth Bale injury? Real Madrid can handle that. A Cristiano Ronaldo one? Not too sure. The Portuguese star, playing better than anyone in the world right now, is going to be out for three weeks with the thigh injury he picked up against Almeria after everyone thought it was a harmless knock. This kind of injury can mean the end to the title race for Real Madrid, unless the whole concept of this being a one man team is wrong. More
