Cristiano Ronaldo Acts Gracefully as He Loses to Lionel Messi in UEFA Best Player of 2010/11 – Pictures

cristiano ronaldoAs most of football experts predicted, as well as us amateurs, Lionel Messi did grab the UEFA best players of 2010/11 award. But apparently, the 3 top nominators already know who will bring home the award even before the show started.

It was a surprise, that Ronaldo would play his role and put the sportive ”loser” face gracefully to his rival, Messi. But the explanation behind that is just simple.

Ronaldo didn’t plan to go for a 4 hours flight to Monaco just to applaud Messi. It was Florentino Perez who convinced  him to attend the event, in order to smoothen their relationship with UEFA. As you all know, Real Madrid have been harmed by UEFA referee and the commitee last season, and Perez decided that he wanted to make all it takes to normalize the situation. And the presence of Real Madrid icon could be one of the solution.

Supercopa Controversy – Victor Valdez Tripped Cristiano Ronaldo in Penalty Spot

valdes tripped ronaldoThere is always controversy behind El Clasico match. And this time,  Barcelona once again manage to get away with 2 penalty shots, that happened right under the ref’s nose.

Indeed, Real Madrid made a few hard tackles during the match, and at least one or two of it should ended with a yellow. And the one that led to controversy was Pepe’s tackle on Dani Alves, which created protest among Barca players. The incident brought us back to the similar one last season, when Pepe received a straight red card after tackling Alves (although on video, people could see that Pepe actually didn’t touch Alves leg).

The  difference is, this time the ref let Pepe go without a card.

But the ref kindness didn’t came for nothing. In return, the ref made a clever move on saving Barcelona from a penalty shot, or should I say, 2 penalties. First, Abidal made a handsball in the penalty area in the first half, which earns a penalty. And second, and the most obvious thing, was when Victor Valdes deliberately tripped Ronaldo while he was trying to chase the ball.

Funny ?? It is funny, since the best goalkeeper in Spain did a childish incident, yet he got away easily, by saying ”I simply touched his foot, it wasn’t a penalty,”

Real Madrid played differently yesterday, which is better, so did Barcelona with their new team. However, there is one obvious thing doesn’t change, and that is the one-sided referee.

Anyway, here is the video of the incident, feel free to judge….Just click the link below :
