REAL MADRID CF | MOURINHO vs VALDANO | THE AFTER SHOCKS OF A 5 - 0 DEFEAT AT BARCELONA

Hi guys. I realize that the apparent big story in SPANISH FOOTBALL is the José Mourinho Press Confrenece outburst last Sunday & that you maybe expecting a comment on this Blog. 


The Real Madrid Coach slammed the Club for not "defending" the team & himself against what he sees as blatant bias from the Spanish referees & Football Authorities. He stated that he doesn´t feel backed by the Club Directives & that he was alway the person in the front-line; he even publicly called a urgent meeting with President Perez What the comments "really" unearthed was a Institutional - In-house conflict between himself & Club Director General Jorge Valdano, a sort of "power-battle" that is ripping the Club & putting President Florentino Perez in a very tight & awkward position.

I am not going to add much further to this "Mourinho episode", as I already did this with a post days back , see this link REAL MADRID CF . There I made the comments that the 5 - 0 defeat at FC Barcelona would have serious after-shocks & that it had untapped accumulating pressure within the Club. There is a "struggle" for authority, the signing of a new forward, dressing room issues & debate with the methods employed & philosophy of the Club. 



Valdano-Mourinho


Some journalists even suspect this is all a Mourinho tactic to deviate attention to the pathetic play exhibited against Sevilla on Sunday & the apparent dressing room split between Casillas & Ronaldo. Others all see the shadow of Football Manager Jorges Mendes in there somehow as he is influencing the Club too much as he is the manager of Mourinho, Ronaldo, Carvalho, Di Maria & Pepe, the last in very tense contract renewal negotiations.

Suffice to say that Real Madrid has a Spanish Cup match tomorrow against Levante & then takes a break for Christmas,  & this last element will be the saviour. The week break will calm spirits & avoid a total "nuclear explosion" at the Club...for the moment. The ONLY thing that will keep things in place is the "gravitational - magnetic force" called winning. If in Febuary 2011 Real Madrid get knocked out of Champions by Lyon - imagine- I don´t even wish to predict the results within the Club.
