SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID 2010 | THE SECOND COMING OF RICARDO CARVALHO

REAL MADRID 2010 | THE SECOND COMING OF RICARDO CARVALHO

Ten Spanish League - Liga matches & a few Champions League are enough for me to say that I WAS WRONG. When REAL MADRID signed 32 year old defender RICARDO CARVALHO from Chelsea FC  I thought that a younger ( Spanish ) player would have been a better investment - WRONG. The facts are the we have witnessed a totally "rejuvenated" player who has become - along with his defending partner Pepe - the cornerstone of the Real defensive line. Its been seasons since Real Madrid has looked so solid in the defence & the few relative goals scored against them pays tribute to this reality.

José Mourinho certainly knew exactly what he wished for when he solicited Carvalho; an experienced battle forged defender with a strong personality that exercises his profession with exceptional craftsmanship, discipline & vigour. The player looks happy, perhaps feeling that he is really part of something & he is even scoring goals! Yesterdays opener against Atletico de Madrid showed more a sheath forward mentality than a central defender.

The player has become a vital member of this Real Madrid team & all simply doing what he does best. Ricardo Carvalho has it all very clear , his function is to contribute & allow the other "stars" to shine, but this contribution so far has been blinding & this is to congratulate.

An excellent Ricardo Carvalho is good for Real Madrid, but most importantly great for Spanish Football - Soccer & here is were I am glad to have been wrong. Hope Carvalho keeps up the excellent play.
