Wilco, why Ronaldo and Jose never went along?.. i ve heard that when they discussed (ManU) with him his come back he said he would never work under Jose again!!

My take is that big egos collided. Mourinho wants players to always do his bidding and work for the team and result, Ronaldo likes to do his own thing. That led to some clashes and falling out. That said if for some reason they would get together again in a team they would probably just work as nothing happened. I think Mourinho might have changed his way a bit after having the Chelsea locker room turn against him last season.

i have a version of a similar story concerning Mourinho, an Egyptian player/Abdel-Sattar Sabry, i am not sure you would be aware of, he played for Benfica at early 2000, he was flourishing as a free midfielder, and when Mourinho came to the team/Benfica around that time they clashed as Mourinho wanted Sabry to play at the ‘wings’, so as Sabry was known for his free roaming skills he backed away joined another team and gotten back to Benfica when Mourinho left for Porto lol… btw Wikipedia is failing (as always) on documenting his history precisely.

I remember Sabry but he played for the rival club… He clashed with Mourinho big time, this press conference is hilarious, don’t know if it’s possible to put subtitles in it or something but it’s basically Mourinho enumerating all the things he didn’t like about Sabry after he complained to the press and left.

It was a tough match and Messi is playing alone at this point…
Real tied the record for most games without losing, kind of surprising, Zidane proving himself now. Although I think it will come to an end this week with 2 games at Sevilla

Imo Zidane will prove himself once this streak ends.
Right now tactically he doesn’t do much. Real would have lost a couple of games if it weren’t for the fighting spirit of the players, winning them late goals.
Great people-manager, yes…but tactically not done much.

Sadly, the same can be said about Lucho lately.

Messi to score a freekick in three consecutive games helping Barca move to the next round. Really smart what he did there by aiming for the right side inside of left.

Very lucky to get away with this one, fun second half, Sevilla has a good team and coach. La Liga game will probably not be as open.

Really enjoyable game. I expected a victory over Las Palmas, but definitely not a walkover. Lucho fielded a team far from main XI but it all worked out. Great to see some players do well when they play with confidence. Vidal, Gomes, Arda, Rafinha performed really well.

Gomes playing, Barça winning.
Chelsea dominating Leicester without Costa. Great news considering him being an asshole about leaving to China or whatever.

And what is this?

Lol, Barcelona firing people because it might hurt “his highness” feelings?

Not fired. Demoted. Even though he was right, imo.
