  • Pellegrini hits back at Valdano! I have been meaning to post on this topic but time just hasnt been on my side but I’ll give you guys a rundown on the Valdano vs. Pellegrini sitch.

Round 1: After the Depor match, Valdano told the press that it was messed up that no canterano’s made their debut which would have been nice for them. He added that maybe Pellegrini did not know them well enough to trust them to play. Stab to the back of Pellegrini and the press goes wild!

Round 2: Players come to the defense of Pellegrini stating that Pellegrini has confidence in the players and that they regularly train with the canteranos. Granero and Marcos (cantera) believe that he has faith in them. Does this makes Valdano look bad? hmm maybe not.

Round 3: Pellegrini comes back with an upper cut and puts Valdano in his place! He says it is not his job to worry about the cantera but nonetheless he knows to perfection all the players of Castilla. Bam in your face Valdano! He added that in El Riazor it was more important for the team to win than whether a canterano made their debut. Now we wait for round 4: Valdano’s response and knowing Valdano he surely will have one. For the presser click aqui! (just realized that the official site makes no mention of Valdano so I’ll post the video provided by Marca including the printed statement, click here).

  • Oh no, Marcelo signed an extension to his contract!  I’m not a fan of Marcelo but he has some good performances sprinkled here and there, still the thought of having him on the team until 2015 just baffles me. I don’t get it! Anyway, for more on this click here.

  • Finally, the Provintial Council of Guadalajara has honored Iker Casillas with the Honourary Award to the Most Noteworthy National Sportsman of the Year! Congrats to Iker! Ikermania all over the place! Here is what Casillas had to say at the award ceremony:

“Thank you for this honor. This award is much more special than other sports awards,” said Casillas as he accepted the award from Maria Antonia Perez Leon, the President of the Council. “We are not obligated to help others, but it is our moral duty. It makes us grow as people. This award will sit alongside all the most important awards I have won throughout my career.”

*Extra merengue:

Just read on AS that Canales will be a Real Madrid player! There had been a lengthy group meeting between the two parties today to get this over with, but so far it is only AS that is producing this story. More on it when it becomes official or more details become available!
