Cristiano Ronaldo Wants ‘Indispensable’ Kaka To Return Quickly For Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Kaka pose together in Zurich during the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year Gala.Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka were rivals for the 2007 World Player of the Year award. Now, their relationship at Real Madrid is all about friendship, care, and respect.

After sustaining a groin injury with the Brazilian national team earlier in mid-November, Ricardo Kaka only featured once for Real Madrid until now:

That was against Barcelona at the Camp Nou when Real Madrid lost 1-0 in El Clasico as Cristiano Ronaldo was playing as a starter for only the first time in almost two months.

Since then, Real Madrid have played four games without the services of the 2007 Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year winner.

Ironically, they’ve won all of these last four games with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain performing well and scoring goals for Real Madrid’s success.

The Spanish giants’ recent positive statistics have led a part of the Spanish media believing that Real Madrid are a better team without the inclusion of AC Milan’s former playmaker, Ricardo Kaka.

Now Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo has come in defense of his friend, who cost Real Madrid a fee of € 65 million to land him from Italy to Spain.

Cristiano Ronaldo stated:Cristiano Ronaldo watches Ricardo Kaka with soft eyes as the pair are about to play together as Real Madrid teammates for the first time.

“People can say whatever they like but Kaka is a phenomenon for me. He is indispensable for the success of Real Madrid and I hope that he returns quickly.”

There were rumors that Ricardo Kaka would be included in Manuel Pellegrini’s man squad for Real Madrid’s game away to Osasuna this weekend.

Finally, reports indicated that the 27-year-old Brazilian superstar was not going to return to the field of play that quickly.

Cristiano Ronaldo might feel some kind of downhearted emotion at Kaka’s long-time absence. However, he will surely try and focus on doing his best to assure Real Madrid of genuine success.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to feature for Los Blancos against Osasuna in La Liga on Monday and he could yet again steal the spotlight with his influence in the match.

Cristiano Ronaldo Wants Real Madrid Fans To Intimidate Others And Support More

Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates in front of Real Madrid fans after scoring a goalFlorentino Perez’s millionaire Real Madrid stars are expected to perform but Cristiano Ronaldo thinks that Real Madrid fans must also support in full voices.

Supporters of Los Blancos have a tendency of being too silent when Real Madrid are down during a game. Otherwise, they prefer to insult their own players or leave the stadium early.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid have a long way to go in the season as a team that are yet to glue very well.

Speaking to the media, Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his worry at the fans’ attitude. He explained:

“Yes, we have to assume the duty of putting on a great show but it’s just not possible sometimes.

“We try, always… but the team doesn’t play well all the time and I think that the fans could support us more.”

As an example, Cristiano Ronaldo singled out the fans of his former team, Manchester United. He said:

“Take Manchester United fans for example. They were very intimidating against other teams like Liverpool or Manchester City.

“I’m sure that if our fans tried to do that, it would give us players a big boost and it would be way better for everyone.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid – Barcelona Champions League Final In Spain Burns

Real Madrid's number 9 Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates in front of the home crowd after scoring.Cristiano Ronaldo dreams of a Real Madrid – Barcelona match in the final of the Champions League which will be staged in Spain, at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 24-year-old star winger has played against Barcelona at four occasions in his career already.

The first time Cristiano Ronaldo met the Catalans will always remain as a sour moment for the Portuguese playmaker and his fans.
It was in the semi-finals of the 2008 UEFA Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo was then a Manchester United player and he was eager to help the Red Devils dominate the team of his rival, Lionel Messi.

Cristiano Ronaldo had the chance to take the game by storm as Manchester United were awarded a penalty in the opening three minutes.
Astonishingly, he blasted the ball wide although Victor Valdez’ wrong guess had left the net almost empty in front of Cristiano Ronaldo’s eyes.

Fortunately enough, this mistake didn’t prove to be very costly as Manchester United still managed to edge 1-0 on aggregate past Barcelona thanks to Paul Scholes’ screamer in the second leg of the fixture.

A year later, Cristiano Ronaldo had another opportunity to redeem himself against Barcelona in the 2009 Champions League final in Rome.

He was seen as the most dangerous player on the pitch during the first ten minutes of the game, testing VictorCristiano Ronaldo takes his head into his hands as Manchester United lose to Barcelona in the 2009 Champions League final in Rome. Valdez twice with good long range shots.
But when Samuel Eto’o broke the deadlock for Barcelona quickly after, Manchester United’s strength faded away.

In the end, Lionel Messi’s header in the late stages of the game and Alex Ferguson’s bizarre substitutions and tactics rounded up the Red Devils defeat which left Cristiano Ronaldo angry at the manner in which Manchester United had lost.

Lately, Cristiano Ronaldo featured for a bit more than an hour against Barcelona in his first El Clasico. The current Real Madrid forward had a good game and a couple of chances to put Los Blancos into the lead.

He was then taken off and had to endure Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat away to Barcelona from the bench.

Now, Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to beat Barcelona with Real Madrid is more than ever intense.

Speaking with Correio da Manha, a sport daily, Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t hide his intentions of “facing Barcelona in the Champions League final and beating them”.

“I hope I don’t have any more injuries and I wish to help Real Madrid winning the titles of all the competition in which we are this season.”

Extending his views on Real Madrid as a team, Cristiano Ronaldo declared:

“I am completely confident that we’re going to improve even more until the end of the season.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Wayne Rooney Dream Backs Real Madrid To Sign The Striker

English Premier League, Manchester United Number 7 Cristiano Ronaldo Congratulates Wayne Rooney After The England Striker Puts Manchester United In Front With A Well-Taking Goal.Former Manchester United playmaker Cristiano Ronaldo wants Wayne Rooney to join him at Real Madrid for the pair to enjoy success in La Liga like in any other competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney made a perfect match during the Portuguese’s spell at Manchester United; for most defenders, it was impossible to try and contain both without being deceived by the duo’s admirable abilities.

After Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for Real Madrid, many predicted and even wished that the former number 7 player would flop in La Liga.

So far though, Cristiano Ronaldo is proving those people wrong. Despite missing almost two months of action for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo remains Los Blancos’ most dangerous player on the pitch.

Cristiano Ronaldo has already netted thirteen times in competitive matches for Real Madrid with seven of those goals being scored in 8 La Liga appearances only.

Now the Portuguese star – who realized his childhood dream by joining the Spanish giants in July 2009 – is looking ahead for a bright future with Real Madrid.

The club’s president, Florentino Perez, spent an astronomical amount of money last summer to land the services of players such as Kaka, Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo himself.

Still, Los Blancos are not done yet on the market. Reports suggest that Florentino Perez is already making a list of players to buy which includes Atletico Madrid’s ace Sergio Aguero.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s former teammate at Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, is also part of the list. But this inclusion byCristiano Ronaldo embraces Wayne Rooney as Manchester United benefit from the duo's influence en route to another English Premier League victory Florentino Perez is mostly backed by the man himself, Cristiano Ronaldo.

In a statement to the press, the Portuguese winger, who winked at Portugal’s bench during Rooney’s dismissal in the quarter-finals of the 2006 World Cup, gladly spoke about Wayne Rooney’s potential:

“He can be a spectacle and a sensation at Real Madrid. He has all the qualities to succeed in La Liga.”

Talking about Wayne Rooney’s attributes, the lad has stamina, aggressiveness, and strength as well. Partnering with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is getting better every day since his return in November, will surely give nightmares to defenders in La Liga and in Europe.

However, will Cristiano Ronaldo’s wish ever come to happen?

Wayne Rooney looks set to end his career at Manchester United since moving from Everton in Liverpool, to Old Trafford.

Unconfirmed reports even tell that the England forward will pen a new deal which will see him remain with the Red Devils for much longer, if not forever.

Study: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Balls Dive Like A Baseball When He Shoots – Ken Bray

Cristiano Ronaldo Free-kick against MarseilleThere is no other player on the planet that poses such threat to goalkeepers as Cristiano Ronaldo when he shoots correctly from free-kicks, according to the University of Bath’s physics professor Ken Bray.

The physicist wrote a book in which he particularly singled out Cristiano Ronaldo to praise him for the strangeness in his shots.

Discussing the scientific connections between the natural laws of nature and soccer, Ken Bray told AS:

“Cristiano Ronaldo takes free-kicks in a special manner. The ball barely rotates after being struck.

“When Cristiano Ronaldo shoots, the ball acts similarly to a baseball and because of this, its trajectory is difficult to discern.

“To our eyes, some goalkeepers may appear stupefied. In truth, they are not at fault. If they are headed towards goal, the Portuguese’s shots are very difficult to save.

“No-one shoots like this, except perhaps Sunderland’s Kieran Richardson. And the goals have nothing to do with luck.”

According to the predictions of physicist Ken Bray, Cristiano Ronaldo will improve upon his free-kicks technique as time goes by.

Goalkeepers can only start crying a river!
