It certainly was a muscular thigh-licious sort of training, wasn’t it? Jese’s always flexing those meaty thunder thighs like he’s Pipita circa-2010. I, for one, appreciate the effort.
Marcelo returned to training with the team and the Pips (Odegaard, Mayoral & Llorente) were called up as well. Lukita & Arbie did some running drills on the pitch.

“We take a very good advantage into the Roma game, but in football you can’t take anything for granted”, he added.
Cristiano Ronaldo attended a promotional event held at Terminal 4 of the Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport, where the Portuguese striker had the following to say to an expectant crowd: “We’re having a difficult season in La Liga and in the Copa del Rey we were eliminated. But as I’ve said many times, we’re still in the Champions League and we’re hoping to win it. It’s no coincidence that Real Madrid is the club to have lifted the most European Cups in the world. We’re excited, nothing is lost and we’re going to keep working hard to achieve things come the end of the season”.
“We put in a very good performance in Rome to bring back a two-goal advantage. Now we play here at home, in front of our own fans.We take a very good advantage into the Roma game, but in football you can’t take anything for granted. We’re going to have to win and play well to go through to the next stage of the Champions League, which is what we want”.
His performance levels
“It owes to hard work over a number of years, of relentless dedication and year after year nothing changes. I’m going to continue in the same vein. Nothing happens by chance. Talent alone is not enough unless you work hard and you put in the effort on a daily basis. That’s what I try to do, but not just today, I’ve been doing it for the last 10 years. I think that I always perform at the same level and my plans for the future are to continue on like this with Real Madrid, to lift trophies with the team and win individual honours to make the supporters and my fans happy. That’s what drives me on to continue in the same vein”.
His dream goal
“I’ve already scored lots of very good goals. My dream goal would be to go past all 11 players and score. It’s the sort of goal you score on the PlayStaion, and I think it would be impossible to do it, but you never know”.
So now you know what to buy the overachiever in your life for Christmas next year.
