Final Training At UCLA, An Award, A Very Special Guest & More

28 Jul

Satellite (12)The team had their final training today before they head off to Dallas to meet Roma in the International Champions Cup.

They also took the time to sign autographs for the fans.

Cris trained on his own again today.

The mothership went a little Cris crazy with 3 videos. One of his arrival on Saturday, a Behind The Scenes of his first training session and how he whipped the crowd into a frenzy. The latter came with photos as well.

I love how the little boy in the pink kit even has Cristiano’s Hollywood Hair. Fantastic! Cris was also presented with an award. Satellite (8)FROM REALMADRID.COM

Cristiano Ronaldo receives the Goal 50 award as the world’s best player during the 2013/14 season

“My amazing team-mates and I are going to do everything we can to make our magnificent fans happy”, the forward said.

Cristiano Ronaldo received the Goal 50 award on the North Athletic Field pitches. The award recognises him as the world’s best player during the 2013/14 season, according the digital publication. “It’s a very big honour for me to have been chosen as the best player. Our club, our technical staff, my amazing team-mates and I are going to do everything we can to make our magnificent fans happy”, the forward declared.

This is the third time Ronaldo has received the award in his career to date, having already won it for the 2008/09 and 2012/13 seasons. Among the top 50 players there are five other Real Madrid names on the list: James, Ramos, Di María, Bale and Kroos. “I’m sincerely grateful for this award. I also want to thank the fans for their support and for their passion for the game, which is what makes this sport so fascinating throughout the world”.

“I wouldn’t have been able to win this award without the constant support from all the people at Real Madrid.”

“Over and above individual prizes, I have always maintained that it’s the team, your team-mates and the fans that make each of us better as footballers. Therefore, I’m convinced that I wouldn’t have been able to win this award without the constant support form all the people at Real Madrid”.

The aims for this season
“My aims for the season are the same as always: to fight from the start of every training session to the last minute of every match. Football and competition are in my blood. My wish is for Real Madrid to lift all the available trophies”.

And there was a very special guest at training today: Alessandro Del Piero!!!!!!!!! My Azzurri lovin’ heart squeed like a teenager. He stopped by to see Carletto who was his former coach at Juventus  and said he was the best coach of all time. He also threw some love at our new signings James and Toni. He also popped his collar! Cristiano approves.

There had damn well better be a Behind The Scenes video of ADP’s visit and hopefully, the advanced collar popping seminar he undoubtedly conducted for our youngsters . ALESSANDRO DEL PIERO! OMG!

Erm, sorry.  ::fans self::

Oh and here’s Dani’s presser from after the match on Saturday.

Carvajal: “It is a challenge facing a season with six titles up for grabs”
by Alberto Navarro (Los Angeles)
“We are all highly motivated and I think that this year can be even better than last year”, the Real Madrid defender stated in the press room.

Dani Carvajal was the last man to speak in the Los Angeles press room. The Real Madrid defender, who played the full match against Inter Milan, talked about his feelings ahead of the exciting season ahead of the team: “It is a challenge facing a season with six titles up for grabs. We are all highly motivated and I think that this year can be even better than last year”.

“We will try to have as good a pre-season as possible, but we are taking it bit by bit and the first trophy to think about is the European Super Cup against Seville. Winning a title is not easy, but we will be looking to win all of them”.

The team’s reinforcements
“James is going to bring a lot to the team and will make us players and the club even better. As a teammate I wish him all the best and I’m certain he’ll do well”. “Bale is showing that he is great form.” “Kroos is a fantastic player. I had to deal with playing against him in the Bundesliga and I faced him this year in the Champions League semi-finals. He will bring a lot to the centre of midfield”.

The secret behind a youth academy player triumphing
“Hard work, hard work and more hard work. That is the basis of success and an implicitly understood value at this club. You have to make the most of the opportunities that are presented to you. I was in their position not so long ago and it’s exciting thinking about making your debut”.

Rotating with Arbeloa
“It was good for both of us and the team last season. We will be fighting to get as much playing time as possible because playing for a team as important as Real Madrid is a big deal”.

The team’s goalkeepers
“We have three fantastic keepers who are always at the top of their game when they play. We can breath easy with these three because they have always shown how good they are”.

The possibility of a national team call up “The excitement [of being called up] is important for a young player, but it is the national team manager who makes that decision. I will just continuing working hard to get there”.

And now, I shall return to squealing about Alessandro Del Piero.

– Lozil
