Piqué makes fun of Cesc's fauxhawk, calls him Franceskinstein, sounds like an ontd_fb-er

Collapse )
I've translated my favorite bits, it's a shame there's no video because it's HILARIOUS.

Cesc, when asked to do the interview with Piqué- "With Gery, whatever you want"
"I've known Cesc since we both tried out for the Alevín A team when we were ten (Cesc starts laughing) What are you laughing at? Have you seen him? This look he has with the "cresta" (fauxhawk) and the scar? It's Franceskinstein!"

Cesc: "He's always been the same. In games he'd take these ridiculous "excursiones" (field trips), he'd be playing central and would end up in the opposite box. The coach would tell him "Leave the backpack, you're not going on a trip!"

They argue over who scored more goals. Piqué says he scored at least 50 but that cesc set up at least 40 of those. Then they talk about Leo who they say was tiny and didn't talk much and things get ridiculous because Cesc says that Leo talks more so it's been a 120 for him.
"You idiot! It's 180, not 120! Puyi! Puyi! Come here and listen to what Cesc said!" Cesc defends himself calling Piqué a dumbass, saying 120 is right because it's not like Leo talks a lot now just that he talks more so it wouldn't be a complete 180. Then they say Leo was great at playstation and they argue over who beats who at Pro evolution. Piqué claims no one has beat him at table tennis since he started on the NT. Cesc says he's too proud and will never say he's bad at something.
"So that's why you left for England, so you wouldn't have to stand me" and Cesc says "Yeah, I'm starting to see that's why I left" Puyol arrives and Piqué says "Hey Puyi, now Barca is going to give us bonuses for winning the league, for winning the champions and for having to put up with me"
It ends with them talking about Arsenal and Man U. Cesc invited Piqué to the CL final in Paris, and Piqué did the same for him this year but he couldn't go. They only played against each other once and of course, Piqué brags that he won. He says Cesc has to come to Barca and that he'd be very welcome there.

Piqué,bb, I'd put up with you any day.

Endorsements block a 'major factor' in Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid

• Ronaldo could earn 'at least £85m' in commercial deals
• Sir Alex Ferguson admits winger wanted to leave United

Ronaldo could earn 'at least £85m' from off-field deals

Cristiano Ronaldo's frustration with Sir Alex Ferguson's reluctance to encourage Manchester United players to exploit their commercial potential was a major factor in the 24-year-old's desire to leave Old Trafford, industry sources say.

It is a scenario that echoes the experience of David Beckham, whose departure to Real Madrid in 2003 was influenced by Ferguson's view that his off-field profile was distracting focus from the team.

Manchester United's Nemanja Vidic insists he is staying at Old Trafford

Vidic insists he will not be joining Barcelona

The 27-year-old centre-back has been linked with a £25 million move away from the Premier League champions, and Barcelona are expected to table a bid in the next few days.

With Cristiano Ronaldo set to complete an £80m move to Real Madrid this summer, the loss of the another influential player would have proved a real blow for manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Vidic's wife, Ana, reportedly wants to leave Manchester because of the weather. However, Vidic told the News of the World: "I am very happy here and next season we will start again. I have got no desire to go anywhere.

"People forget that when you join a new league you don't just have to adjust to the country, you also have to adjust to the style of football.

"I feel my game is well adjusted to England now and I want to play a part in a successful team next season. United can make it a record four titles in a row next year.

"I've started to understand and love all the things you English love.

Now I even love a bacon


Meanwhile, the News of the World also reports that United's hopes of signing Franck Ribery have taken another blow after Real told the Frenchman to wait one more year at Bayern Munich and then they will bring him to the Bernabeu.

Ferguson sees Ribery as the ideal replacement for Ronaldo, but it appears Real is the midfielder's prefered destination and even Zinedine Zidane - a former Madrid player who is still involved with the club - has told him that a switch to Spain is his best option.
