Mourinho plays dumb over red cards

Mourinho plays dumb over red cards

November 24, 2010

By Muhammad Shukrizam

Jose Mourinho refused to be drawn on the red cards that seemed to be intentionally picked up by Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos in Real Madrid's Champions League win over Ajax, while Ramos denied they tried to get sent off.

Alonso and Ramos both picked up second yellows for time-wasting late in Madrid's impressive 4-0 away triumph, meaning they will be suspended for what is now a meaningless game against Auxerre and start the knock-out phase with a clean slate on the bookings front.

The farcical nature of the second bookings, where each player repeatedly stuttered when taking set pieces until referee Craig Thompson had no choice but to act, clearly indicated a ploy by the Spanish World Cup winners to make early exits once the result - and Madrid's top spot in Group G - was certain.

But Mourinho was not letting on as to whether the instruction had come from the bench, instead deciding to criticise Thompson for handing out soft yellow cards earlier in the match.

When he was asked about the red cards, Mourinho said: "I spoke with many players throughout the game, not only with Ramos and Alonso. Stories sell, but the important thing is the 4-0 win and the fantastic game we had. Let's talk about that and not other things.''

When quizzed on the subject again, Mourinho said: "The sendings-off came after an easy game where the referee has shown some strange yellows. They are cards that I don't like. It was an easy game to control. Ajax made a lot of fouls and in the first from Ramos he was shown a yellow card.

"The red cards we picked up don't matter hugely as we have already qualified ahead of the next game against Auxerre. If Ramos and Alonso can't play against Auxerre then there will be others, but we are not going to gift the game to the French. We want to win them all.''

Ramos insisted Madrid did not deliberately seek the cautions to get suspensions out of the way before the knock-out stages.

Ramos said in AS: "We haven't gone looking for the cards. Seeing what the scoreline was, the referee could have spared them. But he sent me off and that's it.''

Mourinho, still unbeaten in his new job, was delighted with the performances of his side's fringe players as Karim Benzema and Alvaro Arbeloa put Madrid 2-0 up at half-time before Cristiano Ronaldo netted a second-half double to complete the scoring.

Mourinho, who was without several first-team regulars for the match, said of the victory: "I'm very happy, because we're first in our group, which is good bearing in mind practically all the best teams will finish first and we can gain a small advantage in the draw for the last 16.

"I'm very happy with players such as Arbeloa, Benzema, (Raul) Albiol and Lass (Diarra), who don't normally play and have responded magnificently. For me all the players are fundamental. Everyone is going to have their opportunity. The responses that they have given today have been very good. The players are ready for everything, and that makes me happy.''

Ronaldo unimpressed by eight goal Barca

Ronaldo unimpressed by eight-goal Barca

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo paid little heed to Barcelona's eight-goal mauling of Almeria as the Primera Division's two big guns each warmed up for next week's Clasico with comprehensive victories.


Ronaldo celebrates after bagging a hat-trick

• Spanish Prmiera Division review

Barca equalled a 51-year-old club record for their biggest away victory in La Liga by demolishing Almeria 8-0 at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos on Saturday night.

That result saw Pep Guardiola's side briefly take over top spot in La Liga, but Madrid reclaimed pole position after thumping Athletic Bilbao 5-1 at the Bernabeu in the evening's late match.

Ronaldo appeared far from concerned about Barca's result, saying: "The 8-0 at Almeria doesn't tell me anything, lets see if they score eight goals against us on Monday."

Aside from pitting the top two teams in La Liga against each other, El Clasico should also see the two leading goalscorers in the division go head to head.

Barca ace Lionel Messi took his tally to 13 for the season with a hat-trick against Almeria, but Ronaldo then did likewise against Athletic to stay one goal clear on 14.

Despite that impressive tally, Ronaldo insists his main aim for the season is team success rather than individual glory.

He said: "We are very happy for the win and I'm also very happy for scoring three goals, but the important thing is that we continue being leaders. I'm fighting to win the league, not for the Pichichi (leading goalscorer in La Liga)."

Ronaldo might have been celebrating another goal against Athletic if he had taken the 57th-minute spot-kick awarded to his side.

The Portugal international is Madrid's regular penalty-taker and scored from the spot in injury-time to complete his hat-trick, but for the first kick it was, rather surprisingly, defender Sergio Ramos who stepped up.

Ramos duly slotted his penalty into the top corner to put Madrid 3-1 up, and Ronaldo said afterwards: "Sergio told me to leave it to him and I'm not going to argue with him over a penalty. He's my team-mate and a great friend. The goal will help Sergio gain more confidence."

Ramos said of the incident in AS: "On the pitch everyone was surprised. There's usually an order, but I was confident and had a thorn in my side because I hadn't scored and normally I have a decent goal average. I hope this is the start of a good run."

Kenali Wanita dari Cara Berjalannya

  1. Bila berjalan, dari belakang kelihatan seperti tidak memijak tanah. Golongan wanita yang jalannya berginjat, konon wanita ini adalah wanita yang tidak jujur, bila berbohong, mulutnya laser dan menyinggung perasaan orang lain. Wanita yang berjalan seperti ini juga terkenal dengan sikap egonya. Lebih parah, wanita ini biasanya pemboros atau suka membazir uang tanpa berpikir sebelum berbelanja. Padahal, uangnya itu masih banyak kegunaannya. Tapi jangan berkecil hati, kerana wanita seperti ini biasanya menjadi pujaan lelaki.
  2. Bila berjalan, sering menoleh ke kanan and kiri. Wanita seperti ini biasanya pandai menyimpan rahasia. Walaupun ramai yang menganggap wanita seperti ini tidak jujur, suka menipu teman sendiri, dan merugikan temannya, namun, byk lelaki yang berusaha untuk menaklukan hatinya. Konon wanita seperti ini senang diatur.
  3. Bila berjalan suka menunduk Cara berjalan melambangkan wanita seperti ini memiliki sifat yang tertutup. Ia hanya akan berbicara dengan orang-orang yang dekat dengannya dan dpt dipercaya untuk menyimpan rahasianya. Wanita seperti ini biasanya sukar untuk ditakluk hatinya. Disamping sikapnya yang dingin, wanita seperti ini tidak peduli dengan kehidupan cinta. Namun, jika ada lelaki yang berhasil menawan hatinya, dijamin akan mendapat kebahagiaan. Sebab, wanita jenis ini sangat setia, dan dia tidak akan mengkhianati lelaki yang dicintainya.
  4. Bila berjalan menatap lurus ke depan. Wanita seperti ini biasanya memiliki pendirian yang teguh. Jangan sekali-sekali menentang apa yang pernah dikatakannya, jika anda tidak mau mendengar dia bicara panjang lebar. Meski pendiriannya teguh, tapi selalu berselisih pendapat. Jangan heran jika wanita seperti ini hanya mau bicara dengan orang yang berpengetahuan luas.
  5. Bila berjalan badan bergerak ke kanan dan kiri. Wanita yang berjalan dengan gaya yang sedemikian tidak perduli dengan masalah yang berlaku. Apa pun masalah yang ada dihadapannya, dianggap kecil. Padahal masalah itu sebenarnya memerlukan kebijaksanaan dalam menyelesaikannya. Kerana sifatnya yang suka ambil gampangnya ini, banyak persoalan yang akhirnya tidak dapat diselesaikan dan akibatnya merugikan diri sendiri.
  6. Bila berjalan badan tampak tegak Wanita ini tegas menentukan sikapnya sendiri. Dia tidak mau urusan pribadinya dicampuri orang lain. Gaya bicaranya serius, menunjukkan dia memiliki pendirian teguh. Yang menarik dari wanita ini, ia bertanggungjawap terhadap apa yang pernah dilakukannya. Dia menyenangi lelaki yang mandiri tanpa meninggalkan sifat-sifat romantisnya.
  7. Bila berjalan seperti Jerapah. Maksudnya, ketika melangkahkan kaki, kelihatan bergerak ke depan dan ke belakang. Wanita jenis ini sangat lemah perasaannya. Dia seorang yang mudah terasa dan mudah ersinggung. Jadi, saat anda bicara dengannya cobalah menjaga perasaannya agar tidak tersinggung, wanita ini mudah mengeluarkan air mata.
  8. Bila berjalan sambil cengar-cengir, senyum-senyum tanpa alasan jelas ini wanita gila, agak kurang waras jangan didekati ..

5 Tips Memikat hati pasangan anda

Yeah, mcm mana ya? Zaman sekarang ni kan girls demand sikit, hanya mahu lelaki ‘poket penuh’ dan good looking. Mengada betul diorang neh! hehe..

Faktor girls sukakan lelaki tetap sama walaupun mereka tergolong dalam golongan demand ni. So, ada 5 cara untuk memenangi hati seorang gadis.

1) Ingat Tarikh Penting

- Ini penting sebab menunjukkan yang kita ambil tahu tentang si dia. Contoh, tarikh lahir si dia. Jangan lupa sebab pantang nenek moyang si dia andainya pasangan cucu cicitnya lupa tarikh-tarikh penting. Lagi satu contoh, tarikh mula couple.

2) Bantu Ringankan Beban

- Jangan berat tulang kalau mahu teruskan hubungan dengan si dia. Kalau pergi shopping tu, tolonglah bawa barang-barang yang di’beli si dia. Si dia suka sekiranya anda membantu, jadilah pasangan yang ideal buatnya.

3) Memberi Pujian

- Ini yang paling indah bagi golongan girls. Cubalah memberi sedikit pujian kepada si dia, ada baik sekiranya anda ikhlas dalam memuji(ramai yang tidak ikhlas dalam memuji). Hindarkan perasaan malu/segan dalam memuji si dia, tidak romantiklah beb kalau malu/segan.

4) Jadi Pendengar Yang Baik

- Walaupun si dia bercakap tentang hal-hal yang membosankan pada anda, layannnn je! Tidak perlu bagi reaksi sebab nanti kantoi yang anda tidak suka topic yang di’bincangkan. Ayuh mendengar!

5) Penuhi Hajat
