It is official, Rafael Benitez will become our coach next season. Carlo was good for us, I hope Perez knows what he's doing.
How is it official?
+1
http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/32837920

BBC is a quite a reliable site. I think he will become next manager.
Yup my thoughts exactly, BBC + Marca = Official
From that article it simply reads he's no different from Ancelotti by winning CUPS and if Perez's gonna fire Carlo for not winning anything this season why don't he sell CR7,BALE,JAMES,KROOS,BENZEMA,ILLARA,SILVA,JESE. As all of those mentioned were brought to the club to win titles and as it's being touted now RM has won the league 1X in its last seven tries.

If Perez is going to fire someone he should walk around surrounded by mirrors and then ask that ? again, the answer maybe a lot closer than he currently thinks.
How is bbc reliable? Based on your link, it says there
"Napoli boss Rafael Benitez has emerged as a leading candidate to become the next Real Madrid manager."
They said he's a 'candidate'. It would only be official if real madrid announced it in their official website.
+2
It isn't "official" unless the club announces it and puts it up on their website.
+1
I thought you guys learned this season BBC isn't always reliable :P
+1
Rumors has it we're in for Raheem Sterling
Lol! Pray those rumors are false then. While you're t it, get Balotelli too.
Don't forget Mignolet as your new keeper and Lovren for more defensive depth :P
I personally think the reason why Sterling wanna liv is he saw a lot of players at Liverpool playing for the rest of their career without winning a Premier League Medal including Liverpool legend STEVEN GERRARD, I hope he signs for Madrid he stands a better chance of winning the league n champions than waste his entire life playing for number 4 in the league...... Enough said

Madrid I remain UNTIL IBHAKABHAKA WIN THE TREBLE
And Benitez!
Presently the biggest jokers at RM are (1) F.Perez, (2) I.Casillas.

Raul announced his departure from Madrid bigger man for doing so and Perez f...d that up with a paultry send off..... C..T that he is. Xavi has now announced his departure from Barcelona bigger man he is and yet Iker Casillas finds it so hard to just move on and call it a day.

Both Raul and Xavi saw that in order for both their respective clubs to move on and progress they had to make room for those future stars and stalwarts of the club. Yet Iker stays!!


RM had to wait 12yrs to win their 10th UCL and yet achieved by a coach who brought 4 trophies in 1.5 seasons and because of injuries to key players at key moments in the league and others not showing up for duty, our President has decided it's time to go.

I'm waiting to see the coach since VDB to come to RM and win something.


So f....g ironic when coaches were fired at RM for not winning our La Decima, and now coaches are being fired for not winning the LEAGUE!!!! LOLZ when the coach who's being fired won La Decima but not the league has to go.

F.PEREZ a suggestion pay off EVERYBODY, that way you will get all you want and a hard working coach will get to continue to pay his bills and take care of his family as it seems NONE of that matters to YOU.
+3
Iker said that he wants to stay even if he becomes the backup keeper and help the club in a different way, for example doing work with the youngsters. He wants to stay because Real Madrid is his home and family. How does that make him a joker?
+4
Because it makes it harder for anyone to be actually given a chance to play. Unless he quits the team any Gk would find it difficult to get play without being put under pressure from the media with Iker as backup. He needs to distance himself from the team to avoid putting the coach under pressure to play him without it being an issue.
+1
@henkkaa because nobody believes he's happy being a backup keeper. Casillas raised hell when mourinho benched him and as a result Carlo also played him in at least one competition regardless of whether he was the best or not. Any new manager who comes in also knows that benching casillas means making his own job 5x harder, just like mou.

Casillas knows all this, and he's saying he'd be happy to be the backup to please fans knowing that if he stays no one has the balls to bench him. That's the cynical play he's making and as someone who always admired Iker I think it's a shame what he has become.
+3
^What? Lol Iker didn't complain at all when he was benched. Also LMAO at your theories. Only a Barca fan could come up with something like that.
+1
I have many madridista friends and most of them agree that it's possible. If you know me in general I'm not interested in throwing mud on madrid or madrid players.

Of course casillas never openly revolted but I think any intelligent observer would agree that he was happy his teammates and the media were complaining on his behalf. (When Mou was around)
@Henkkaa don't be ridiculous. Iker would have to leave RM completely in order for him to accept being backup to any other GK. Name any other WC/EURO/UCL/LEAGUE/ESC/CWC/LEAGUE CUP winning gk that has ever had to sit behind any other gk that has not won any of those I've mentioned and was completely happy just to be there and the media was completely SILENT for the entirety of that situation.
I don't understand your logic. Iker says that he wants to stay even if he has a different and a smaller role in the team. How do you come to a conclusion that he lies and is cynical? Also, he didn't complain about his benching but you just happen to know that he was happy that others did?

You make claims without any basis except how you feel and state them as facts.
+1
I thought it was common knowledge that Mourinho left because of dressing room tension owing to his fights with Casillas and Ramos. This is not something I made up, this is what I've been been told by most madridistas I've spoken to, the media, and I've seen that written on this forum many times too (by madridistas). If I'm wrong about this, I'd be happy to be corrected. If you want to tell me I'm wrong, feel free to do so. But I don't appreciate you suggesting that I'm making things up.
Casillas sat quietly while rumours of fighting flew around, some by his girlfriend. So yeah it's his fault in the sense he didn't silence any claims.

I think if De Gea comes Casillas MUST leave. Personally I just want Navas to start and backup for Navas, the best keeper in La Liga last season.
It is also common knowledge that Iker took his benching very professionally (According to his team mates, which I trust more than newspapers). You say that Iker is lying to the fans and making a cynical play without backing it up at all. Don't you see how absurd that sounds or have you got no idea at all what kind of person Iker is? If you think he has turned into a bad and selfish person, feel free to do so. But don't state your opinions and conspiracy theories as facts if you can't back it up.
+1
I think it's very clear that me thinking he's being cynical is my opinion. But next time I'll put up a billboard next to my opinion for your benefit.

as for backing it up, the opinion may sound absurd to you but it doesn't at all to me. WhY? Well, because I don't see any other way of explaining why Mourinho left and what all the fuss was about if casillas had nothing to do with it. If you have an alternative explanation, I'd be happy to hear it.
@Henkkaa did Iker's teammates tell you that personally or did you read that from newspapers or read it online written by the same people who wrote the newspapers you don't trust.
@Tanmay no need to explain further as it's common knowledge to every RM fan that Mou left mainly because of how Iker had a problem with Diego starting before him and that led to others talking out as they say the situation hurting the team and Mou's response was as it should be I'M THE COACH AND I DO WHAT I THINK'S BEST FOR THE TEAM.

RM has always been a team that felt no coach could truly tame them and it's always their way or the highway. Think the reason so much support's being given to Carlo, surley not because he's a great tactician or politician when it comes to football. Simply because he allows certain people to start no matter what, like I said earlier none of the bench players have said the same as those who start either from their death bed or a limb hanging off.
+1
Mourinho left because he's a twat.
+2
^ lol now you're practically forcing me to agree with you :)
@Hikmat: not leaving would've made him even worse, so I guess he's not all bad :P His time at Madrid turned me into a true hater of the club, just because of him and his disgusting lies and football tactics. I actually have a picture of me standing in front of the Bernabéu holding up my Barça scarf; childish thing I wouldn't have done if Mourinho wasn't your coach at the time.

The fact he left was because of selfish reasons, but I'm very happy he did. I also enjoyed my share of 'Schadenfreude' to see all the fans of major English teams immediately hating him in his first season back at Chelsea. Now they knew what kind of a dick he was again.
@Pedmar Mou left not because of his relationship with casillas, but because he failed to win anything that season, all while having feuds with the major players of the squad iker, ramos, ronaldo and many others.
Mou left because he was surely going to get fired. He just made sure he kept his reputation intact by calling it a mutual agreement to cancel the contract. It's really difficult to go trophyless and keep your job at the top clubs. Heynckes was probably the last coach of a top club to keep his job after failing at the last hurdle in all the championships no offense to arsenal and united fans.
^This. Mou had a problem with the squad, not only Iker. Iker was in the spotlight because he was benched, but he didn't complain.
So Tanmay I ask you again, what makes you think Iker has turned from one of the most humble and respected players to a cynical lier and a bad person? He himself has said that football is his life but he cares more about being a good person. I don't mean to offend, I just can't understand how have you come to such a conclusion.
Beats me how people on here talked so EXPERTLY on things they read on papers. I dont get all the hate on Iker.. would we have won ANYTHING this season if he was not the gk?

The s**t mistake Navas made against Espanyol... i cant imagine what the whole world would have said if that was Iker... its ridiculous how we cant accept that these guys will make mistakes from time to time...

So Iker out... Navas in... and all our problems are solved??

REALLY???
@henkkaa personally I think your narrative doesn't explain half the details that people generally agree probably happened. Eg it is certainly possible that his partner the journalist was acting on her own when she said he isn't happy with the situation etc. On the other hand people in relationships don't play with their partner's careers so lightly.
Similarly one can say that he just chose to maintain a dignified silence in the face of all these reports, and though he should have quashed the rumours as captain, the fact that he didn't was just a mistake because he was busy training and concentrating on his work. On the other hand, a veteran captain doesn't just forget to deal with the media. It certainly is a little strange that his silence ended up benefiting him.
Similarly the fact that mourinho didn't just get fired he was later publicly bad mouthed by ramos and others. Now mourinho has commanded fierce loyalty from his players wherever he goes... inter, chelsea, porto. What happened that players who fought for him suddenly decided they hated him? So there was a bust up and uyou can think it was one off but it certainly doesn't seem that way.

My opinion is that somewhere in the last two years casillas has started putting his own interests before the club's and the current saga is a continuation of that. Why has he changed so much from the old iker? I don't know, it could be any of a hundred reasons.

This is not science of course, and I could be wrong, but there certainly is enough reason to suspect that my story might actually be the correct one.
I want F.Perez to tell the world the name of THAT coach which has won something each season they were in charge of any team.

When he can do such is when I will forever side with any decisions he will make. Also on that note if such a name is produced I am also very anxious to hear how he intends to pry that coach away from their respective team.
Pep.

But I understand your point. And perez can't get pep either.
+2
So as the rumour mill swings from one side to the next, someone finally spoke to Benitez agent and here is what he said.

"This is just a strong rumor on the media, for the moment. Furthermore, Rafa is still preparing what will be a huge game for Napoli ahead. They have not called us..."

I breath a little bit easier today.



If i owned liverpool id sell everyone but coutinho and sign half of villareal and half of valencia and bring emery to coach the players.
That would cost you literally over a billion dollars.
Alves

Mario Otamendi Musacchio Gaya

Perez Bruno Gomes Feghouli

Vietto Alcacer

With Emery managing that team would be insane!
Mate, nobody would buy some of the Liverpool players, you'd have to pay teams to take some of them
+4
If I was Liverpool owner I would sell whole team buy buy full Southampton team . Oh wait !!

No but seriously they need to have a sane sporting director , that can negotiate and buy quality players .

Read a stat that their gross spending on transfer is close to that of real in last 5 years , yet the difference in both teams is huge .

Well, we were thinking of something along the lines of a free transfer plus James.............. but ok, 15 mil sounds reasonable...
+1
Take it and never look back Perez!
+1
I cant believe we paid 40 million for him
I want to officially congratulate Barcelona Football Club for clinching the 2016 La Liga and Copa Del Ray title. Well done guy, it wasn't even close.

In other news, apparently Pogba 'chose' Barcelona and will wait for them until their transfer ban is over.

Also, Kaka got called up for Copa America! (f**k you Slim, he's still got the goods)
Ha! Pogba will not spurn Zidane, Benzema and Varane. If he goes to Spain it will be to Madrid.
+3
All the rumours today have him leaning Man City, tomrrow it will be PSG and then Barca then us and round and round we go till he goes where he goes or stays and then one reporter will have had it right and said see I told you so.
Sarcastic congrats? This is the madrid page btw
Where is Slim?
Rafa Benítez will be our coach no point of screaming about it.

Perez will give him Pogba and he will be the signing that he hopes Madrid fans we be happy with. Have already been talking with Pogba’s agent.

Benítez is going to go with his 4-2-3-1.
http://s27.postimg.org/xhw1fa9xf/Untitled.png

I doubt he will like Marcelo at Left-back but we will see.
He’s the king of player rotations so he’s the complete opposite to Carlo in that regard.
The man knows his football and is know for his tactical acumen.
I just don’t know how this will go.
Kroos or James will be on the bench in big games.
Carloooo why you no rotate and adjust tactics this year?!?
For all that you've just said Benetiz has only won the UCL in his entire coaching career. So I couldn't care less about his rotational or tactical acumen. It's complete and utter c..t.
In that supposed formation pic I counted no less than 6 players that will be camped out in the opponents' half, so who will defend OURS????
+1
Maybe he'll convince Higuain to come back?
+1
@Real

why would you guys want him?
Still not buying it .
Having higs nd benz was good. But bad
When JLSanchez reports something, its 99.99999% true
I dont see Pogba playing defense, but I like the position for James, that spot is perfect for him
sigh, i cant stand perez anymore..

Its now official.. thanks for everything Carlo.. lets hope benitez can bring success to the club

After just one season you fire the guy and Mou was here for 3 and won CDR one year and the league the next and Carlo won 4/FOUR/F.O.U.R in 2 and he's gone.


WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!
