The performances of Raphael Varan have not only charmed the supporters Madrid or the Spanish press but also the star attacker Cristiano Ronaldo.
If you are a football fan, you probably followed last week’s semi-final go from the King’s Cup that saw Real Madrid and Barcelona compete. Of course the extraordinary performance of the young Madrid Raphael Varan has blown you away. You are not the only ones. A size of world football, Cristiano Ronaldo, in person, has just touted the merits of the young 19-year-old defender. In an interview he gave to the sports daily as, the Portuguese striker has entrusted the Frenchman: “Varan has grown as a player and as a person and I am sure that he will be a great defender.” It is fast, it has a good relaxation and it is quiet. He accumulates experience despite his young age. He is humble and, for me, in a few years he will be one of the best defenders in the world. “I have no doubt about that.”
Cristiano Ronaldo, supporters Madrid, Spanish media, all agree to recognize the merits of Raphael Varan. The whole of Spain fell under the spell of the old lens. In the aftermath of his victory, to read the titles of the Hispanic Press, we had the impression that only a player from Madrid had entered the field to confront the FC Barcelona of Lionel both the titles were complimentary to the “little Frenchman”. We could read “Varan brakes Barca” or “Varae holds Barca”. It remains for the Real Madrid defender to realise all the hopes put into him under the tricolour jersey. To his great despair, Raphael Varan was unable to honour his second team selection in France. A pain in the hamstring forced him to forfeit. Do you share the opinion of Cristiano Ronaldo?
