Is there room for Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid?

บอล ชุด In his latest 'Five things from La Liga' column, Guillem Balague explores how Neymar would fit at Real Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo strengthened his claim as football's greatest ever striker.

Room for Ronaldo and Neymar?
We have to start with Ronaldo, who else? Not only is he the best striker of all time but now there's a case that he is the greatest first-time finisher in history. He only needs one touch to score. His movement is clever, he is strong competing for aerial balls, he sees space and the most importantly, his team-mates see him in those spaces.

He scored a goal every 311 minutes in the first half of the season to one every 44 minutes since January, which is amazing. He's three goals shy of old adversary Lionel Messi in the race for the Pichichi too. Interestingly, the press in Madrid have billed the Pichichi as the biggest award ever, almost as important as winning the league. That, of course, has to do with the fact Real are 15 points behind Barcelona.

Sunday's 6-3 win over Girona provided further evidence that Gareth Bale has fallen behind Macros Asensio and Lucas Vazquez in the appreciation of Zinedine Zidane. Bale got on the scoresheet at the Bernabeu but Asensio and Vazquez do something Bale has not been doing lately, and that's to revel in games like that. บอล ชุด

He's been a little bit resigned, a little bit down and it would be good for all concerned if he demanded the ball, ran into space and positive things that would win back Zidane's faith. To be left out of a game of this stature, though, shows he is yet to win Zidane over.

Karim Benzema, on the other hand, was very good at linking the midfield and attack. With just four La Liga goals to his name this season, this has proven to be his best asset. If say Neymar was added to the equation it would make for an interesting proposition - would Cristiano accept that?

There was a time when Benzema was thinking of leaving Real Madrid and there was a time when Real Madrid were thinking about moving Benzema on. Ronaldo lobbied for Benzema to stay and Gonzalo Higuain eventually left. If Neymar came along, despite Paris Saint-Germain insisting there is no way he is leaving this summer, Real Madrid, Ronaldo and the squad would have to be in favour of his arrival - which they are.

The only problem with this potential transfer is the small matter of wages. Cristiano earns £18m (€21m) net and that's soon to increase to £22m (€25m) with bonuses. Neymar earns a staggering £31m (€35m) net at PSG, so Real Madrid will need to sort that out, perhaps by bringing Ronaldo's wages up to "26m (€30m) and asking Neymar to reduce his wage. บอล ชุด

Klopp urges Liverpool fans to 'show respect' to Roma

sbobet thai The Reds boss wants no repeat on Tuesday of what happened to Manchester City's team bus in the Champions League clash at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has called on Liverpool fans to show Roma "the respect they deserve" when the teams meet in Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg. Merseyside Police have vowed to crack down on any troublemakers to avoid a repeat of the incidents before the clash with Manchester City in the quarter-finals, when missiles were thrown from within a crowd of Reds supporters at the visitors' team bus as it made its way to Anfield.

Klopp does not want Roma to receive the same welcome and has urged fans to show their opponents the positive side of their "fantastic" support. "In the stadium – do it again, and do it better. Out of the stadium, please show the respect we need to show," he told a news conference. "This is such a fantastic football club, an outstanding football family known for fantastic atmospheres all over the world. We don't need to throw whatever at the bus of the opposing team.

"Please, show [Roma] the respect they deserve. We are only opponents on the pitch – I feel this wonderful city can show [the world] how nice Liverpool people are, and the spirit of the club." Klopp has also challenged the Anfield crowd to create an even better atmosphere than they did in that 3-0 win over City on April 4. "The good thing at Liverpool is I don't have to tell them what to see; they know it already," he said. "They create one of the most special atmospheres in world football.

"They're more experienced of this situation than we are. I don't know if the atmosphere against Manchester City can be bettered but, if so, let's try. "If you cannot enjoy these moments, there's something wrong with you. I don't have to say anything – I know they will be perfect." Captain Jordan Henderson also hopes the fans can inspire another top European performance, saying: "Obviously at Anfield the atmosphere is unbelievable. It gives us a great lift as a team and it's helped us on big occasions so far.

"Hopefully, the crowd will be unbelievable, but the performance needs to match

"They'll maybe ask different questions to City but we've played a lot of good sides in Europe who have asked a lot of questions of us, and we've answered them so far "They're a strong side – we need to be ready and keep doing what we've been doing well. We need to keep playing at a high intensity, keep creating chances and scoring goals." Roma produced a huge shock by knocking out Barcelona in the quarter-finals on away goals after a 3-0 second-leg win, but Klopp does not think there is any added pressure on his side simply because they are the favourites for this tie. sbobet thai

He added: "I thought in the first second, when I heard the 3-0 result, it wasn't possible. But it is. Now we play against each other, so maybe our situation is similar. "What's really important is we can enjoy our own football – there’s only one team that can win it, but it’s a long season. Our job is to show the best we can. "People talk to me about pressure, about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it's not like that. Even for me it would be the second time to the final, so it shows what is possible." sbobet thai
