Messi: I want to finish my career here

Leo Messi was clearly very happy to have signed his contract extension on Friday and he believes that this is the culmination of a great season at the club.
It has to be the ambition of every player who starts out in the youth academy to play out his career at the club and with the signing of the new contract extension Leo Messi is on course to do just that. When his current contract runs out in 2016, Messi will be 29 years old, but, as he told www.fcbarcelona and Barça TV: “I want to finish my career here at Barcelona”.

Recognition

Renovacix_Messi_4_www.fcbarcelona.cat.jpgThe new deal comes as Messi is enjoying a great time at the club on the back of last season's treble and the Spanish and European Super Cups this year and being voted the best player in the 2008-09 Champions League and he admitted: “this is a result of everything I gave to the team last season and all I've given since I came into the first team”.

Just one of the boys

Demonstrating his typical humility despite been seen by many as the World's Number 1 player, Messi insisted: “I'm just one more in a very special group of players, of a great team which is very united. I'm a part of that and we'll go on to win even more”.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be out for about a month


EL PARTE MÉDICO EMITIDO POR EL CLUB CONFIRMA LA RECAÍDA DEL LUSO

Cristiano estará de tres a cuatro semanas de baja

  • El portugués ha regresado hoy mismo a Madrid, donde las pruebas médicas han determinado el alcance exacto de su lesión

Collapse )

La resonancia magnética ha confirmado que CR9 sufre una recaída de su lesión

Cristiano Ronaldo ha sido sometido a una resonancia magnética que, según el club blanco, ha confirmado que el jugador ha sufrido una recaída de su lesión de su tobillo derecho, consistente en un esguince del ligamento lateral interno grado I-II con inflamación y edema óseo en astrágalo. Según los servicios médicos del club, CR9 estará entre tres y cuatro semanas de baja.

Ya antes de las pruebas, los galenos blancos sospechaban que el jugador pudiera sufrir una pequeña fractura trabecular, cuya recuperación es lenta y tendría al astro portugués entre tres y cuatro semanas fuera de combate.

El tiempo de recuperación será similar al que habría asumido con una fractura

Así, lo que se pensaba que era un esguince parece algo más serio. El jugador, que cayó lesionado tras una dura entrada en el último partido de Champions ante el Marsella, podría arrastrar una minifractura fruto del fuerte impacto recibido. La afectación ósea estaría dentro del propio hueso como consecuencia del aplastamiento que el golpe que el marsellés Diawara le propinó al portugués.

En el Madrid estaban preocupados, y con razón. Por ello las prisas en que CR9 regresara a Madrid cuanto antes para someterlo a las pertinentes pruebas médicas, pruebas que tenían como principal objetivo disipar los peores temores del club. Se trata de una lesión que no exige pasar por el quirófano pero sí de un proceso de recuperación largo y lento.

El derbi madrileño, en peligro
Si Cristiano Ronaldo está finalmente tres semanas de baja, se perderá tres partidos de la Liga BBVA ante el Real Valladolid y el Getafe en el Santiago Bernabéu y frente al Real Sporting de Gijón en El Molinón, además del duelo de Champions frente al Milan en el Bernabéu y del primer encuentro de Copa ante el Alcorcón.

Los problemas llegarían si finalmente está un mes en el dique seco, puesto que se perdería también el encuentro de Champions ante el Milan en San Siro, que se disputará el 3 de noviembre, y correría peligro el derbi madrileño ante el Atlético en el Vicente Calderón, que se jugará el 7 ó 8 de noviembre.

Cristiano Ronaldo out for up to 4 weeks due to ankle injury

MADRID - Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out for up to four weeks because of an ankle injury.

The Spanish club said Sunday that scans confirmed Ronaldo had severely sprained his right ankle while playing for Portugal in World Cup qualifying on Saturday. Portugal, with 16 points, leads third-place Sweden by one point. Portugal has a World Cup qualifying match on Wednesday against Malta.

Madrid lost its first match of the season last week to Sevilla with Ronaldo missing the match due to injury.

are we really that short of goalkeepers?

England call up Ben Foster for Belarus

Foster missed out on the initial squad having been sent for scans on bruised ribs sustained in United's Premier League draw against Sunderland last weekend.

However, at the time it was viewed as little more than a convenient excuse for England manager Fabio Capello to sideline the 26-year-old, who had been blamed for Kenwyne Jones's second-half header for Sunderland, only two weeks after he was held responsible for two Manchester City goals in United's 4-3 derby victory at Old Trafford.

But, with Green ruled out of Wednesday's game following his dismissal in yesterday's defeat by Ukraine, Capello has shown faith in Foster after he was passed fit. It is ironic that Foster should benefit from someone else's absence, given the number of times he has had to pull out of international squads as a result of injury.

Green had started the past seven games under Capello. Eager to make an impression given the recall of David James, the West Ham goalkeeper lasted only 15 minutes at the Dnipro Arena before he brought down Artem Milevskiy.
