Cristiano Ronaldo deflects questions about his former coach, Mourinho

The captain of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, ignored the criticism of his former coach Jose Mourinho and said he has not spoken to anyone from Real Madrid for a possible renewal of his contract.

“I have not spoken with anyone yet and the most important thing is the national team.”

Fans believe Dani Carvajal will unseat Arbeloa

The greatest victim of Dani Carvajal’s arrival at Real Madrid could be Alvaro Arbeloa. Although the former Liverpool player believes that this move will work well to improve the team, most fans believe Carvajal’s arrival signals the end for Arbeloa at Madrid.

Rarely do online polls give such overwhelming results. The 92 percent of respondents for such a poll on MARCA.com felt that Carvajal will be placed in the starting lineup of Real Madrid next year, while Arbeloa will not even be found on the team.

The survey, with more than 14,000 participants, serves as a barometer to gauge the feelings of the fans on this issue.

However, Arbeloa himself was calm on this issue in an interview in La Sexta. In the words of player, “the player most benefited from the arrival of Carvajal” will be Arbeloa himself.
