Cristiano Ronaldo unhappy at Real Madrid, could make shocking move out of Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t too happy with Rafael Benítez‘s appointment as Real Madrids coach. At least, that’s what Spanish site EcoDiario is reporting this Friday. Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing almost every match ever since he joined Real Madrid, no matter whether he was tired or not. Rafael Benítez has a strong tendency to rotate his players constantly, and that could affect Ronaldo‘s numbers considerably, so this report is worth considering.

Ronaldo is capable of being such a dominant force statistic-wise because of the number of matches he plays. However, at age 30, the Portuguese player should definitely think about rotating more often from now, and Benítez is the perfect coach on that matter. If Benítez can give Ronaldo some rest while keeping the player’s trust, Real Madrid’s star should be more ready than ever to play the decisive matches in March and April.

It should be noted that Ronaldo showed his support for Carlo Ancelotti after Real Madrid’s last game of the season, saying that he wanted to ”work with him” next year. Ronaldo was probably aware of Real’s interest in Benítez by that time and wanted to share his thoughts on that.









That sort of overt power move is, it seems, indicative of Ronaldo’s relationship with Real Madrid president Perez, described elsewhere in the Spanish press today as ”a marriage of convenience.”

At times over the past year, particularly around the time of the 30-year-old’s controversial birthday party, he reportedly felt that he didn’t receive enough support from the club.

This all ties into an annoyance that super-agent Jorge Mendes is supposed to have with Florentino after he chose to hire Benitez rather than Mendes’ first choice (and client, of course) Nuno – currently in charge at Valencia.

Were Ronaldo to leave the Bernabeu, Paris Saint-Germain would be the frontrunners for his signature.

PokerStars Now Sponsoring Cristiano Ronaldo

PokerStars has added another world-class athlete to its stable of sponsored poker players and poker enthusiasts.

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Team PokerStars as a brand ambassador and will promote the game and the brand in global marketing campaigns, Amaya Gaming Group said Wednesday. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ronaldo has more Twitter followers than Kim Kardashian and is the most followed person on Facebook. Between the two social media sites, Ronaldo has nearly 140 million fans. The 30-year-old is considered one of the best players in the history of the sport.

Canada-based Amaya bought PokerStars last year for $4.9 billion and is betting on re-entry into the American market via licensing in New Jersey. Amaya is also looking to buy rival

Ronaldo said in a statement that he has been playing poker for “a few years.”

Amaya Chairman and CEO David Baazov said in a statement about the signing:

Ronaldo is part of a new generation of global superstar athletes that work hard, play smart and encourage their fans to share in their lives. We’re proud that Ronaldo – and fellow elite player Neymar Jr—have chosen to make PokerStars a partner in their journey and to share their love of the game of poker with their legions of fans.”

PokerStars signed Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior just weeks ago.

Earlier this spring, footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic reportedly turned down a deal with PokerStars worth millions. The reason(s) apparently remain unknown.

Other athletes sponsored by PokerStars include Rafa Nadal, Ronaldo, Fatima Moreira de Melo and Marcus Hellner. The company sponsors more than 50 poker pros as well.

Cristiano Ronaldo shows off his new CR7 Underwear range

Cristiano Ronaldo posted a picture on social media of his latest underwear range.

The Portuguese would have expected a far greater return from his 58 goals in all competitions than the FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup secured earlier in the campaign, but despite scoring so many goals, Real Madrid failed to win any major trophy this season but it haven’t affected Ronaldo’s off the pitch bussiness.

Ronaldo is used to seeing people wearing Madrid and Portugal shirts with his name on – and the 30-year-old also launched a CR7 footwear range earlier this year.

But the best of the brand will forever be his collection of underwear – and Ronaldo was keen to get the opinion of his Instagram followers on which item he should wear from his luxury line.

The former Manchester United man was ramping up publicity for his new spring and summer range on Wednesday, posing the questioned: ‘Which pair of #CR7Underwear should I wear today? Help me choose!

Cristiano has been seen getting his knickers in a twist at times this season for the La Liga giants, as team-mates have failed to pass him the ball, but wearing the green stripes number – reminiscent of his Sporting Lisbon days – he will at least take satisfaction from another personal accolade.

Heading into the final round of league fixtures, Ronaldo is set to be crowned the Pichichi – La Liga’s top scorer – with his 45 goals currently four ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.


A strong suit: Which Real player would be King of the club?

Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about his love of gambling in the past, but did you know some of his colleagues at Real Madrid also like to bet?

A deck of playing cards can be the rise or fall of a gambler, with poker players longing for the rare Royal Flush. If Ronaldo and other Real stars were playing cards, which would they be? Let’s take a look and find out!

Queen Ancelotti

Ruling the roost at Real is the Queen – Carlo Ancelotti. One of the most successful football managers of all time, Ancelotti will secure his reputation as one of the greatest in history if he can help his club to defend the European Cup, something no team has done for 25 years. Ancelotti has already won Europe’s premier club competition on three occasions. He is universally loved and a popular figure with fans of all clubs due to his hilarious sense of humour and comically arched eyebrows.

King Ronaldo

There is no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is the King, towering over the pack thanks to his incredible quality and unbelievable goal-scoring record. Since arriving at Real Madrid in a massive transfer deal from Manchester United, Ronaldo has scored 219 league goals for his club in just 198 appearances, making him undoubtedly one of the best players in the world.

Ronaldo also holds various records, backing up his position as the King, including his title as the all-time top scorer in the UEFA European Championship. He currently has the second-most goals in Champions League history, and is just one goal behind his great rival, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Ronaldo is known to love gambling and once stated in an interview: ”I’m a target for casinos and I get invited to celebrity tournaments. But I prefer to play online or among friends.” Casinos might try to attract Ronaldo and his teammates, but to avoid the spotlight they can gamble online at Casino Tropez.

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale is the Jack in the pack – one of the most versatile cards and a vital option for Ancelotti’s Real as they chase the La Liga and European Cup titles. The last season has been a tough one for the Welsh international and he has sometimes struggled to find his place at the Bernabeu, but there is no doubting his usefulness and his amazing goal in last year’s Copa Del Rey final against Barcelona was proof of his huge quality. Bale is the Jack because of his trickster reputation; his skill on the ball certainly makes him an apt choice for this card.

Wildcard Sergio Ramos – Joker

Who else could be the Joker but Sergio Ramos? Since joining Real from Sevilla in 2005 he has been one of the club’s most important players, collecting an amazing ten club medals, as well as being a crucial part of the Spain team that won three successive international tournaments. Ramos is a risk-taker and his aggressive style of play, love of bullfighting and ability to contribute vital goals at key moments makes him the perfect choice to be our Joker in the pack.

Cristiano Ronaldo only behind Raul, overtakes Di Stefano in Real Madrid scoring chart

Cristiano Ronaldo moved ahead of Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano in the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart on Sunday evening.

Ronaldo, 30, scored yet another hat trick in the 4-1 win at Espanyol which moved him onto 310 goals from his 299 games, and the three-time Ballon d’Or winner is now closing in on record goal-scorer Raul who left the club in 2010 with 323 goals from 741 games.


1. Raul – 323
2. Cristiano Ronaldo – 310
3. Alfredo Di Stefano – 307
4. Santillana – 290
5. Ferenc Puskas – 242

Real Madrid say that Di Stefano scored 308 goals in 396 games, though official statistics place him on 307 — the club attribute a goal scored in a Copa Del Rey game against Betis in 1962-63 to Di Stefano while other outlets give it to Ferenc Puskas. Carlos Santillana, who played between 1971-88, bagged 290 in 645 games while Puskas managed 242 in 262 games between 1958-66.

Ronaldo‘s treble at Espanyol was the 26th of his Madrid career, which saw move two clear of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi for the all-tie record of La Liga hat tricks. With this hattrick, Ronaldo is almost set to bag another European Golden shoe, 3rd with Madrid and 4th overall.

Here is the Golden Shoe Standings with a game to go in Spanish League.

On Wednesday against Juventus, Ronaldo equalled Messi once more in the battle to become the top scorer in Champions League history. The pair have been outscoring each other all season but the Portugal international has now tied Messi on 77.

Cristiano Ronaldo primed for new historic Real Madrid record

Former Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo is one goal away from beating Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano’s all-time scoring record of 307 goals.

The Portuguese winger moved to Madrid in the summer of 2009, trading the Red Devils for the Santiago Bernabeu for a then world record transfer fee.

During his time in the Spanish capital, Ronaldo has scored for fun and broken numerous records in the process, including becoming the Champions League’s all-time top scorer alongside Lionel Messi.

His goal scoring record has defied belief at times, but remarkably he has yet to topple Madrid’s all-time scoring list led by Raul with a whopping 323 goals in 741 appearances.

However, Ronaldo isn’t too far behind and one more goal will see him move ahead of currently tied second-placed Alfredo di Stefano, who managed 307 strikes in 396 appearances.

The opponent standing in his way this weekend is Barcelona’s city rivals Espanyol, a talented side but one which hasn’t tasted victory against Los Blancos in their last 16 encounters.

While the season might be over for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in terms of trophies, for Ronaldo there is still personal glory to be had and a target to hit which will at least keep him motivated and at the top of his game.

With two La Liga games remaining, the 30-year-old leads Argentine superstar Messi with 42 goals to 40 in the race to land the prestigious Pichichi trophy awarded to the Spanish top-flight’s top marksman.

Cristiano Ronaldo donates £5 million to help victims of Nepal earthquake

The Real Madrid star handed over the incredible sum to charity Save the Children, French sports magazine So Foot claimed.

Nearly 8,000 people were killed after the natural disaster struck, causing untold destruction as well as a lethal avalanche on Mount Everest.

Cristiano Ronaldo has proved again that he’s a kind human being and putting his massive array of riches to good use.

With a long history of being charitable for a good cause, the 30-year-old Portuguese superstar reportedly has donated £5 million to Save the Children, an organization working to aid Nepal in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.

Last month real madrid star also called upon his legion of Facebook followers to donate to the charity. Ronaldo showed just last week his affinity for the organisation on his Facebook page:


Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid. Ronaldo nets hat-trick, keeps Real Madrid title hopes alive

Real Madrid moved to within two points of Barcelona after Cristiano Ronaldo‘s hat-tick sealed a 3-2 La Liga victory at Sevilla.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s fifth La Liga hat-trick of the season gave Real Madrid a 3-1 victory over Sevilla to keep the pressure on leaders Barcelona.

Ronaldo, whose quick-fire double midway through the first half put Carlo Ancelotti‘s side in command at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, capped the treble with a terrific header after being set up by substitute Gareth Bale in the 68th minute.

Carlos Bacca pulled one back from the penalty spot for Unai Emery’s side – who had earlier gone agonisingly close to taking the lead through Jose Antonio Reyes – after former Sevilla man Sergio Ramos had fouled Aleix Vidal in first-half stoppage time.

Sevilla, who face a Europa League semi-final clash with Fiorentina next week, did snatch a second through substitute Iborra, but despite a late onslaught, they were unable to prevent Real from securing a seventh consecutive league triumph.

With Barcelona having increased their lead at the top of La Liga to five points with an 8-0 demolition of Cordoba earlier on Saturday, Real got off to a positive start, with Sergio Rico pulling off a phenomenal save to prevent Ronaldo firing the visitors in front.

Sevilla, undefeated at home since a 4-1 loss to Barcelona in February 2014, were not to be outdone, however, with Iker Casillas, returning in place of Keylor Navas, having to be alert to deny Vidal.

Reyes almost nudged Sevilla in front soon after when Bacca, who scored twice last time out, played in a wonderful cross that the winger was just inches away from prodding in.

Ramos – deployed in midfield after returning from suspension – was involved in a clash of heads with Grzegorz Krychowiak soon after, with the Polish midfielder retreating to the sidelines for treatment.

And Real made the man advantage pay when, in the 36th minute, Ronaldo leapt to head home his 40th league goal of the campaign from Isco‘s hanging cross.

The Portuguese was on hand to double the advantage one minute later, tapping home at the back post following Javier Hernandez‘s flick-on.

However, Ramos‘ rash tackle on Vidal on the stroke of half-time gave Sevilla a golden opportunity to get back in contention and Bacca duly obliged as he converted from the spot.

Ancelotti introduced Bale – returning from injury – in place of Hernandez shortly after the hour mark and the change paid immediate dividends as the Welshman crossed to the back post, where Ronaldo executed a sublime header back across goal to seal his hat-trick in splendid fashion.

Emery brought on Kevin Gameiro and Iborra with 12 minutes remaining, with the latter on hand to tuck away a second for the hosts after being set up by Vidal just two minutes after coming on to set up a frantic final 10 minutes.

Coach Ancelotti defends Cristiano Ronaldo’s Goal Obsession

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has said that forward Cristiano Ronaldo has scored so many goals because of his character and his sheer desire to improve.

Ronaldo left the pitch shaking his head in disappointment after he failed to score for his second consecutive match even though Real Madrid defeated Almeria 3-0 earlier this week.

The reigning European champions are currently sitting second in the table and are two points shy of table toppers Barcelona with four rounds of games remaining in the league this term.

Ancelotti’s side will face Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium tonight. The Italian was asked if Ronaldo’s obsession with goal scoring is good for him and replied that it has served him well so far.

He’s scored all those goals because he has character”, Ancelotti was quoted as saying by AS.

Cristiano is never happy with how he’s doing, he always wants to improve and that’s why he scores so many goals.”

Ronaldo has not been immune to criticism from the Santiago Bernabeu faithful and when Ancelotti was asked if the Real Madrid fans were right in whistling the Portuguese, the Italian said that a lack of respect for Ronaldo from Los Blancos’ supporters surprises him.

I don’t understand how the Bernabeu can whistle Cristiano.”
