Real Madrid fans need not criticise superstar Cristiano Ronaldo according to defender Pepe, who sees the player in fine form. Ronaldo is in the race to win the Pichichi award after being in fine scoring form over the last few weeks.
However, he has gathered most of the goals against a few opposition in a limited number of matches while failing to perform against the top teams. This has been the major criticism of the former Manchester United winger. Madrid are a whopping 12 points behind leaders Barcelona and this disparity has largely come as a result of Ronaldo not doing well.
Philippe Senderos joined the Premier League side Aston Villa back in June of 2014 and when the transfer was officially complete, Paul Lambert stated that the Swiss defender was going to be a good addition to the team but it doesn’t seem like it as Senderos has barely even been able to play a large amount of matches due to injuries which has kept him out of the playing grounds.
After having gone through a string of injuries, Aston Villa is now prepared to release Senderos in the winter transfer window as the manager of the English club has lost their patience and faith with the Swiss defender who simply couldn’t stand out since arriving to the Premier League club.
Even though Philippe Senderos has been struggling with successive injuries, reports have already been emerging claiming that there is a team which is interested in signing the Swiss defender after he gets released by the Premier League side.
The Belgian playmaker El Kaddouri has said that the Napoli boss Sarri was pretty upset about the fact that the team conceded a late goal in the European game versus Legia Warsaw.
Napoli won that game comfortably by 5-2, but, what irked the manager was that the players seemed to get a little relaxed at the end and it resulted in the opposition scoring one to bring the margin down.
That one goal did not make any difference though as Napoli’s way ahead of the others in Group D as far as the goal differential is concerned and thus, they remained at the top.
According to Kaddouri, conceding goals is something which Sarri absolutely hates and in a short chat post the game, he let everyone know that Legia should not have been allowed to get that second one.
Kaddouri said, “We were not up to the standard at Bologna, but, this one was much better.”
Cardiff City should keep hold of striker Kenwyne Jones according to defender Fabio Da Silva.
The striker is out of contract at the end of the campaign and there is a lot of interest from other Championship clubs. Sheffield Wednesday are thought to be heavily considering the prospect of making an offer for the player when he enters into the final six months of his contract. There is also interest from abroad with some Israeli clubs showing interest. The player will be able to sign the precontract agreement with foreign clubs from January if his situation at Cardiff City does not change.
Pepe Reina has admitted that he is not entirely happy at Bayern Munich, as he is not getting regular first-team football at the Allianz Arena due to the presence of Manuel Neuer.
The German international is seen as one of the best in the world and almost came close to winning the FIFA Ballon d’Or award. This would have made him the first goalkeeper to have won the award, but the 29-year-old only lost out to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and it is certainly not a bad thing at all. Reina was a surprise candidate to be a backup keeper at Bayern Munich.
Pepe Reina spent a little over 8 years performing with the Liverpool jersey. The Spanish goal-keeper was a consistent player for the Premier League club and helped the club on winning a number of titles but the experienced player ended his time at Anfield on a bitter way and he has no intentions of leaving Bayern Munich anytime soon.
After having ended his 8 year long spell with Liverpool, Pepe Reina joined Napoli on a loan deal and when this contract was over Reina decided to make a move to Bayern Munich. Reina joined Bayern Munich on August of 2014 and has so far made 2 appearances.
2 appearances in almost 1 year, this is a poor amount of matches for a player who is still considered to be a very good one in his position but even with this lack of consistent matches, Pepe Reina stated that he prefers sitting on the bench of Bayern Munich instead of making a return to Liverpool.
Ever since Pepe Reina arrived to Bayern Munich in August of 2014, the Spanish shot-stopper has made one competitive appearance for the German club and this was a few weeks ago when Bayern Munich defeated Werder Bremen.
Sitting on the sidelines of Bayern Munich has turned into a regular routine for the former Liverpool player who managed to earn the Liverpool Player of the Season award back in 2009 and also went on to claim the Premier League Golden Glove award for 3 successive years.
At one point of his career, Pepe Reina was considered to be one of the best players in his position and now he has turned into a backup option for Pep Guardiola.
Cardiff City recently brought in Russell Slade as the new manager of the team in order to replace the former Manchester United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian left his role after a few months into the new season due to his failure to get a club closer to the top of the table. Despite spending considerable amount of money in the summer,Solskjaer failed to bring results from a consistent basis. One of the several signings made by the club was striker Federico Macheda, who joined on a free transfer after allowing his contract at Manchester United to expire.
Pepe Reina has not been especially lucky when it comes to injuries since moving to Bayern Munich in the summer.
The Spaniard was aware that he was not going to be the first choice at the German club during the presence of Manuel Neuer, but he was hopeful of opportunities especially in the cup competitions. They have been limited after the former Liverpool goalkeeper spent eight weeks on the sidelines due to a calf injury. He has just returned to training and is hopeful of facing his first match in the next few days.
The Belgian goal-keeper Simon Mignolet is the current first choice shot-stopper for Brendan Rodgers for Liverpool but after conceding 9 goals in 6 Premier League matches, the defence of Liverpool is being a target of criticism and Mignolet is being put into question as if he’s good enough to be the undisputed option for a club that is struggling to pick up consistent victories.
Pepe Reina is the former irrefutable goal-keeper of Liverpool but his relationship with Brendan Rodgers is believed to have started to fall apart ever since Reina was being linked with a move to Barcelona as the Spanish player wanted to join Barcelona but a deal could never be completed and he instead joined Napoli.
A few months after joining Napoli, Pepe Reina revealed to the public that his career with Liverpool was over as they had signed Simon Mignolet and the Belgian player was in the plans of Brendan Rodgers but Pepe Reina wasn’t.
