Calderon’s Ronaldo Obsession Continues

Real Madrid have just got rid of their 10th manager in 10 years and are currently fifth in the table. Their president, Ramon Calderon, obviously wishes they had managed to lure Cristiano Ronaldo, as maybe now their situation may not be so dire. With former United striker, Ruud van Nistelrooy, suffering from what could potentially be a career ending injury, Real are in trouble.

So, what better time to start mouthing off about failed transfer attempts than now? Forget all their actual problems, let’s just talking about Ronaldo instead. Nice one, Ramon.

“We have left that, it has been a very big story, which we didn’t provoke,” said Calderon. “The player said he wanted to come here, a dream to come to Real Madrid and we received and we were happy to know that. After that I talked to Manchester [United] but [chief executive] David Gill was very clear and said they did not want to sell at all. We want to have a good relation with all the big clubs in Europe and Manchester [United] is one of the best and I would like to have a good relationship with them forever, and they said for the moment no. I know the media in general like to give excitement to their readers and listeners and Cristiano Ronaldo is a fantastic player and he has won the Golden Ball – and I congratulate him on that and I wish him the best – regardless of where he is going to be in the future.”

    “… regardless of where he is going to be in the future.”

    he’s hinting something, doesn’t he?

  4. Costas says:

    Let the man cry all he wants.Sir Alex might be “senile” but it beats clinging on your past glories because you can’t build a team to bring you bew ones.I won’t mind if we are drawn against them.Ruud will most likely be absent(which is good since i have nothing against him) but Heinze and Calderon will be there.Let’s hope Ronaldo shows them what they missed!

    “We want to have a good relation with all the big clubs in Europe”. Good for you, mr. Calderon. We, on the other hand, only want to THRASH all the big clubs in Europe and lift the Champions’ League again!

  6. spencer says:

    JUST SHUT THE HELL UP YOU STUPID OLD MAN

    WE KEPT RONALDO AND WE WILL DO SO FOR AS LONG AS FERGUSON WANTS TO KEEP HIM. HE IS OUR PLAYER. END OF.

    WHY DON’T YOU TRY LISTENING TO YOUR OWN SUPPORTERS WHO CHANTED AT THE WEEKEND ‘LESS MONEY SPENT AND MORE YOUTH PLAYERS COMING THROUGH’.

    YOU REALLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO RUN A FOOTBALL CLUB DO YOU, YOU CLUELESS MUPPET.

    I HOPE WE PLAY THEM IN THE NEXT ROUND, WITH RONNIE SCORING A HAT TRICK

  7. spencer says:

    I AM SO ANGRY WITH THIS MANS COMMENTS

    ‘WE WILL NOT TALK ABOUT A PLAYER THAT IS NOT OURS’ HE SAID A FEW MONTHS AGO

    SENILE FREAK.

    HE IS JUST WOUND UP THAT HE FAILED TO GET HIS MAIN TARGET

  8. james f says:

    “From the very first day at Spurs I was interested in Zokora because he always understood the game plan and I liked his discipline,” Ramos said in the Daily Star.
    Ha, ha! Ramos seems to have acclimatised fairly quickly to the RM ways of provoking transfers!

  9. Ulrik Fredrik says:

    Calderon’s a prick. Did not provoke? Fine, from questionable news reports about Ronaldo’s public admittance to wanting the Spanish imps, the boy may be part to blame. But Calderon did his part, too. Who can blame him? But what pisses me off is how he can actually come out and say that he didn’t do anything wrong. Now I really hope United gets a chance to hand Calderon a real whooping.

  10. bmac says:

    fuck it – sell ronaldo, £130k to kick the ball into the stands? Ungrateful wee fuck.

  11. Cherry says:

    I hate this chap. believe me I do!! He is a failure. He is just obsess wth ronaldo

  12. Red-Manc says:

    he can go fuck himself, real madrid are a joke how many managers do they get through in a year, slaaaags

  13. unitedgirl15 says:

    Hahahahaha.
    Hey Calderon, what club is Ronaldo at?
    Yeah that’s right.
    UNITED!
    Not Madrid… UNITED!.
    Okay? Now leave him and us alone please :-)
    Hehehehhehehe

  14. King Eric says:

    Cunt. Simple as.

  15. denton davey says:

    Of course Calderon is a fool but, more to the point, his team is swirling the drain. Lose to Barca and they are pretty much dead meat in La Liga. A new coach – Juande Ramos – who was terribly overmatched by the EPL might change things but I wouldn’t hold my breath about that. Real Madrid are a club in search of stability and continuity – they won’t get either with Calderon in charge and Ramos behind the bench. Long may it continue like this.

  16. Kings says:

    Fuck off Calderon you cunt.

  17. ot070506 says:

    Aalborg pre-match press conf.

    SAF: Another one? (Chuckles.) Who… who is it this time? Some one I know?
    JOURNO: Ramos.
    SAF: Oh… (Smiles.) Well, I know him…
    JOURNO: Do you still expect them to come after your players?
    SAF: (Stops smiling, in a bit lower voice.) It doesn’t matter… I think we’re in control now.

  18. TonyBee says:

    Well said King Eric, Calderon > Cunt

  19. Red-Manc says:

    I want ronaldo to leave but not to real madrid. sell him to barca just to really piss them off

  20. themarkedman72 says:

    Thats good news that story.
    Reason is its a climb down.
    Calderon is trying to say “wherever (Cr7)he goes” in the hope the inter milan rumour is true as in some sort of small victory for himself but also he is really admitting he failed. He tries to cover it up in the opening comment blaming ronaldo but clearly he is shattered by not succeeding.
    Fantastic.
    The man is clearly suffering. Chalk up another victim to SAf.
    He will be gone at next election for sure.
    Calderon=failure.
    Plus with comments like that, public embarrasment to club as well.

  21. Vidic will get ya15 says:

    i want ronaldo to stay i hope the rest of you can 1 day forgive him for his summer antics. he was absolutley brilliant last year, i feel that calderon is spouting all the time knowing ronaldo is very honest in the fact he was a real madrid fan, and using this to piss us off, i fuckin hate caleron the guy is a complete wanker and just hope ronnie watch’s his beloved madrid get fuckin spanked by barca in the el classico this weekend and sign for us for life then everyone will start to forgive him

    VIVA Ronaldo

  22. Vidic will get ya15 says:

    ronaldo to score 4 over the 2 legs including a second half hat trick in the bernabou :) living the dream :)
    stick that in ya sangria you arogent cunt calderon

  23. trashtalk united says:

    Red-Manc
    barca already have messi. sell ronnie to inter instead, they have the money.
    ronnie’s price should be no penny less than a 100 quid
