The Real Madrid photogs were obsessed with Mou handing out bibs at training today since most of the pictures were of that. What a waste of beautiful pictures of the boys in their blue training outfits!
Here’s who got the call up:
Goalkeepers: Adan, Tomas Mejias, Pacheco
Defenders: Arbeloa, Coentrao, Varane, Albiol, Mendes
Midfielders: Kaká, Ozil, Di Maria, Sahin, Altintop, Callejon, Granero, Xabi Alonso
Forwards: Higuain, Benzema, Jese
As you can see Cris, Marcelo, Sergio, Iker, Pepe, Sami and Lass were left out – undoubtedly being rested for the Clasico. Castilla’s Pedro Mendes and Jese along with Real Madrid C’s Pacheco got called up.
I’m glad to be seeing some of the others getting playing time. I’m betting the Mesut and Xabi won’t see much time if any. I think they should be rested as well.
I can’t believe that we’re only a few days away from the Clasico. Argh. I’m not going to even start thinking about that until after the Ajax match tomorrow. One game at a time.
