Jose Mourinho talks to Maicon after Man City Champions League clash and pokes fun at Rafa Benitez, describing him as ‘the fat one’ and joking that Marco Materazzi will probably join him -a sarcastic comment based on Materazzi’s great dislike of Benitez. Reminded me of this great video of Mourinho and Materazzi crying when parting for the final time.

More about Mourinho’s strained relationship with the board and Perez in particular, currently at it’s lowest point.

Brazil sure Guardiola ‘would sign tomorrow’.

Messi one less game | Barca sex promise | Falcao City bound?

Messi one less game | Barca sex promise | Falcao City bound?

Today’s video shorts:

The second legs of the next round of the Spanish Copa del Rey have been postponed until January meaning Pichichi perfectionist, Leonel Messi, has one game less to break Muller’s record.

A porn star who is a massive Barca fan has offered a night of passion with any Barcelona fan if Barcelona win the league this season. Don’t worry, she has a wide taste with her own choices, were she to have free reign, being Puyol, Xavi and Messi.

Falcao again left out of Los Colchoneros side in Europe last night meaning he’s still not cup tied should he move club. Mundo suggest that he’s destined for Man City.

Mourinho to PSG, Ronaldo to Man U, Reina to leave Liverpool, Falcao to one of 4 Prem clubs

Mourinho to PSG, Ronaldo to Man U, Reina to leave Liverpool, Falcao to one of 4 Prem clubs

In today’s video:

The Ronaldo return to Manchester United Story

In response to what we reported last week that Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid and return to Manchester United, both Mundo and AS quote Ferguson today, with Madrid based AS making this story a front page feature. Both papers quote Ferguson as saying that he would like it to happen but that it would be practically impossible to sign Ronaldo right now at the peak of his career because he would cost too much. He says possibly one of the Russian clubs could afford him but that ‘CR7’ used to complain of English winters so doubts he’d go there.

PSG want Ronaldo and Mourinho

Al Thani, owner of PSG wants to lure not only Ronaldo, but also Mourinho to Paris. Mundo say Mourinho wants to live in London from next season and coach PSG (only 2 hours by train). AS also speculate as they report on a story from the Daily Mail that Mou’s wife and daughter were in London on Friday to enrol his 16 year old daughter on a Fine Art course at Camberwell College of Arts.

Mancini knows more than Morinhou

Mundo report that Roberto Mancini’s son, Andrea, has come out ahead of the Man City v Madrid game and said that Mancini knows more about football that Mourinho.
Andrea is well known to Oldham fans after his one appearance for them in 2011. He was on loan from City at the time having been signed by his dad from Inter, where he spent 3 years having been signed up by his dad there. In total he made 0 appearances for either City or Inter and a total of 11 appearances on loan during this time. Having been released by his dad at the end of last season he failed in a trial at League 1 Bournemouth and he’s now plying his trade at Valladolid B in the fourth tier of Spanish football. By plying his trade we mean he’s on their books, though he’s not yet turned out for them!

Man City to raid players and staff from Barcelona

Staying with Man City, and following on from our video last week citing Barca’s fear of City raiding their youth setup, Mundo today report that Man City are interested in players such as Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets, Raul Sanllehi from the technical staff and the newest target, Doctor Ricard Pruna from the medical staff.


  • AS – Kaka to Italy.
  • Mundo -Reina to leave Liverpool.

La Liga stars tend to leave for Premiership, Falcao is next – Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester clubs battle it out

MARCA have an article entitled ‘The English Supermarket’ today. They talk of all of the players that move from Spain to England: Football is no stranger to the economic crisis plaguing Spain and thus many players are now moving abroad, particularly to the Premiership. They cite Rafa Benitez as the first to regularly fish from the La Liga lake, catching Torres, Xabi Alonso, Reina, Luis Garcia and Morientes, with players such as Cazorla, Aguero, Silva, Mata, Yaya Toure, Owen and Coloccini taking the bait since. English clubs have transferred over €300m to La Liga in the past decade (so surely this is actually of benefit regarding the crisis?!). Players such as Fabregas and Pique also moved, for free. More recent English acquisitions have been Suso, Bellerín, Pozo and Denis Suarez.

…Then a separate article, entitled ‘Heading to the Premiership’ talks about Chelsea, Man United, Man City and Spurs all fighting to get their hands on Radamel Falcao. It quotes Falcao as saying, “One day I’d like to go to a different team in a different league, but I have 3 years left on my contract and right no the reality is Atletico Madrid”. Marca speculate whether this move may come to fruition sooner than expected: Falcao has not been selected for any Europa League games this year, adding weight to the theory he may be off in January, but Falcao himself says this is nothing to do with the possibility of him leaving, but is a ‘precaution’.
