Anyway, coming back to Real Madrid. Real Madrid got some bad news few days ago when we heard that Gonzalo Higuain will miss the remainder of the season. I think that is a blessing in disguise as that will give ample opportunity to Benzema to showcase his talents. Steve Mcmanaman has also said that Benzema should use the injury of Higuain to his advantage by giving his all in the remainder of the season in order to win the trust of the coach.
Another bad news for Real Madrid is that Pepe has injured himself and hewillmiss 1 month of play time. That is bad and I would like to take this opportunity to correct myself when I always supported the use of Sergio Ramos as a central defender. I think Sergio Ramos has everything that a central defender should have except for the discipline part which he lacks and lacks big time.I think he leads the table for the most red carded player in Real Madrid history. I am not sure but he must be close.
Ok enough of the bad news. The good news (at least for me) is that Mourinho is inclined of keeping Lassana Diarra at Real Madrid and he is trying not to let him go. That is encouraging as I think Diarra is one of the best central defenders in the world but lately has been out of form but that does not mean that he will not reach the levels of play he displayed in his early days at the Bernabeu.
I think he can comeback given Mourinho shows some confidence in him.
What do you guys think? Should we sell Diarra? Do we need another striker? and most of all (a little off topic I guess), did the FIFA WORLD PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2010 shortlist of 3 players made any sense to you?
I am all ears. HALA MADRID!!!
