Real Madrid v Sir Alex, Round 738 - 'No Contract'

Real Madrid v Sir Alex, Round 738 - 'No Contract'

It takes little to rouse Fergie's anger these days it seems. Some petty rumours by crappy Spanish newspapers once again riled him to the extent of issuing an angry attack.

As you probably know, Spanish daily El Mundo reported that a man close to Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon insisted in a private conversation that Real Madrid's got a done deal for Cristiano Ronaldo: he's set to leave for the Bernabeu in the summer but Madrid can't officially announce it yet as there are clauses to prevent that.

Now this is such a cock-and-bull story that it's poor even by Spanish paper standard. Of course I'm sure Fergie did not react simply because of anger, he was probably asked about it as it's a big deal, you see.

'Do you think I would enter into a contract with that mob? No chance,' he said.

'I would not sell them a virus. That is a no. There is no agreement whatsover between the clubs.

'I said to David Gill a year last summer when we sold Gabriel Heinze you could bet your life it will all start up around Ronaldo in January. It will happen again this January.'

'If we worry about what Real Madrid have to say we are not concentrating on our own publicity and the programme of difficult games we have got coming up.'

'Sometimes it can be an angry situation and sometimes I get really annoyed with them. But we know their game. I think we should play ours and ignore them.'


And of course it's the umpteenth attack Fergie launched on Real Madrid. Well, we all know they are the most arrogant football club in the world with a president whose hypocrisy would shame Arsene Wenger - so there's no need to reiterate it all so often. Just ignore it, Sir Alex, as you said you should do.

This 'I would not sell them a virus' line made me chuckle, though.

Even Calderon can't control every single Spanish paper (only Marca and AS :-)) so he's not to be blamed here I think.
