Currently in Los Angeles for the Herbalife World Football Challenge2011, an international friendly tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed himself on his compatriot Fabio Coentrão.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who exchanged his jersey with David Beckham is pleased to welcome Fabio Coentrão to the Real Madrird. “He is very happy and full of illusions with the idea of playing with this team.” For him, it’s a great opportunity to grow up. “He will give everything under this jersey and show the great player he is” spoke the Portuguese superstar. Coentrão was ripped off at Benfica Lisbon against 30 million euros (the amount of the waiver clause) as well as the Argentine defender Ezequiel Garay who will never really be taxed within the Merengue squad. He will compete with the Brazilian Marcelo at the left side post.
Fabio Coentrão, who for Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, is the 5th summer Rookie of Real, after Altintop, Sahin, Callejon and Varan. He joined a Lusitanian colony already well supplied in Madrid. Besides Cristiano Ronaldo, we find Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho and coach José Mourinho. Will this new recruit allow the White House to put an end to the hegemony of the mortal enemy of FC Barcelona? Or a recruit in attack, which could be Neymar, Aguëro or Adebayor, is necessary? What do you think?
