It is being reported by both Marca and El Mundo Deportivo that 65 million star signing Kaka will have to undergo treatment for his hernia for the rest of his life. He will have specified regimen with certain exercises in order to avoid further damage to the injury. Although this sounds like major tragic news for Madrid, the medical staff assured that he will return to being the player that he used to be.  Should we ring the alarms or remain calm? (

Well good news is that today’s training included the returns of Pipita and Diarra. They were able to taka part on the orders of Pellegrini after doing some gym work. It is most likely that they will be included in the list for the match against Espanyol after not having troubles throughout the session. However, the return of Van der Vaart, Lass, and Garay is more complicated as all three are still suffering from certain problems, and will have to wait before Saturday’s game to see if they will make it. The training also brough about eight canteranos which included Mateos, Raúl Ruiz, Juanan, Nacho, Mosquera, Luis Hernández, Cristian and Velayos. David Mateos expressed his happiness to be training with the first team, This is what we work for since we are little kids. Hopefully more of my teammates from Castilla can someday enjoy this experience.”

Finally we end this round of Vikingo News with Granero’s press conference where he talked about his ambition and the difficulties in making that gran leap from Castilla to the first team. El Pirata explains that he works hard everyday because he wants to be an important player for Real Madrid, and in my opinion he already is. Furthermore, he describes the difficulties Castilla players have in breaking into the first team.

“Many of them have trained with us this season. It’s good for them to see how we work. They could get promoted any day, so it’s good that they adapt soon.Every player’s case is different. It isn’t easy to leap from Castilla to the first team. You have to be very good to play on this team. I think I did well to play for Getafe because it allowed me to grow as a footballer.”

He then went on to praise his captain Raul by stating that he has always been a great example and has always been there to help, “both on and off the pitch.” For the entire presser, click here!

The Hungarian striker who for the past two years has spent his time playing for Real Madrid Castilla has decided to join German club Mainz until the end of the current season. The 6’4 striker has found it hard to break into the first team and with many clubs fighting for his services, he and the club felt it best to go out on loan in order to gaim more first team football. His choice in which club to join was made easier with Mainz being managed by his former coach Thomas Tuchel. On Mainz official website the 22 year old stated the following:

“I have chosen Mainz because the club really tried hard to get me and I know the coach Thomas Tuchel from when I was at Stuttgart.

“I also see good perspectives for me and the club.”

Best of luck to him!

I thought I could put the Alcorconazo behind me but this weekend the team in yellow proved to be our nemesis once again, but this time against Real Madrid Castilla. Our youngsters who were looking for thier fifth victory in a row, lost to Alcorcon 2-1 with Juan Carlos scoring the equalizer in the 84th minute but were gutted when David Sanz scored the winner in extra time. Ah Alcorcon why must you torture us!!!
