Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez has called on Real Madrid to punish midfielder Guti.
Marquez is aware of Guti's flare-up with Real coach Manuel Pellegrini during their Copa del Rey thrashing by little Alcorcon.
"Any player who does not show respect to his boss should be fined or punished," declared Marquez when quizzed about the controversy.
Meanwhile, the defender revealed he was close to putting pen to paper on a new deal to 2012.
"For me there is no problem," he said. "There's only minor things, both sides have practically agreed."
"ALL I WANT IS MY OWN TV SHOW"
Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you all have a safe and cheery time. I just finished with school and I'm OFFICIALLY on two-week break. IMO, not long enough but hey, better than nothing.
Today's post include:
• While Cesc JUST wants his own show, Bojan JUST wants to play.
• Once again, a round of adorable football pictures
• Mind games with Cesc. You in?
• Yummy chunks of randomness.
