Kaká & Caroline love singing, each other, slideshows

If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Real Madrid midfielder Kaká wrote a love song and sung it with his wife whilst images of their love flashed past your eyes through heart-shaped graphics... Well, wonder no more!

Kaká's wife, Caroline Celico is set to release the duet, "Present de Deus (A Gift From God)" on her debut album.  Kaká had performed the tune before, having wrote it for and sung it on their wedding day back in 2005. 

Lyrics are available in Portugese on the YouTube page.

It's no David Villa duet, but what is?  Get your slow jam on Kaká & Caroline!

Hargreaves surprises Sir Alex

Owen Hargreaves is back in training and close to giving Sir Alex Ferguson a selection problem.

The boss told MUTV in an exclusive interview this morning: "Owen Hargreaves has come back training, he trained yesterday with the first team. He looked very good. I was surprised actually how good he was looking.

"It's an extra string to our bow, bringing him in at this time. After being out for so long, we'll obviously have to monitor him and see how he's going to progress in the next few weeks. But it's good to see him back.

"Because he's been out for so long you have to see whether there's going to be a relapse. That's the first thing on our mind at the moment but having watched him in training yesterday if he continues that way he's going to give me another selection problem, no question about that."

The boss has received a further boost with Michael Carrick also on the road to recovery.

"Michael started training last week," confirmed Sir Alex.

"He had that injection on his Achilles to settle it down. It was nothing serious, just one of those niggling little problems you can get with your Achilles, particularly at the start of the season when grounds are firm. But he's fine, he's started training."

Mourinho: "Winning the league will be harder if the teams that play against Barça give away the games."

Coach of Real Madrid, José Mourinho, considers that his team will have to win "many points" to win the Liga against Barcelona, though he added that their chances will be less if the rivals of the now champion face their games thinking they can't win.

"Barcelona has the league and it'll be theirs until the last day. We're the ones that have to think about how many points we need. I don't know how many, surely a lot, specially if some teams play against them and give away the games, knowing or thinking they can't win, and put in their second team... if that happens many times, it'll be harder."

The Portuguese know that the greates rival will be Pep Guardiola's team, without leaving aside others, but he also knows that the rest of the teams won't be easy to beat. "Barcelona is an important team and we'll have to win a lot of points, without forgetting the other teams that are also in a good moment and are proving they can get close. There aren't 20 candidates to win the league, but yes 19 rivals that will bring trouble to us. We haven't had an easy game so far, because these teams put up really hard games against us."

Finally, he added: "In Italy, each game is very tough because of the way the competition is, because of the tactic, that always come over the technical and esthetical aspects. Here you have a bit of everything, a very tough league. There'll always be differences between the teams on top and the rest, but Hércules is promoted from second division and defeats Barcelona, Real Sociedad does the same and could've taken away some points from us... they're very well-organized teams, they know what they're playing at."

Samaras scores goals; haters stay pressed

Samaras: I always knew I'd be a hit at Celtic - now Lennon knows it too

Georgios Samaras denies he has changed to suit Neil Lennon - and insists he is back in the plans simply because the gaffer has actually worked out what he offers to Celtic.

The striker smashed a midweek hat-trick in the Co-operative Insurance Cup romp over Inverness to draw wholesome praise from his manager.

not his goal, but the 6th of a midweek game against Inverness CT where he scored a hat trick

yes, a Gerard Piqué post. yes, because he is awesome.

Yesterday there was the presentation of Time Force's new line of watches and jewelry (oic) that will be signed by Gerard Piqué. The barça player talked to the press and posed for pictures later. Time Force says Gerard is in the campaing because he's as famous as Cristiano Ronaldo or Elsa Pataky (lol stop. dis bitch is only famous cos Adrien Brody bought her a castle): "Gerard represents the values of leadership, ambition and sacrify that we want to transmit."

SAF: Berba deserved headlines, not me...

Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his disappointment at the media reaction to United's victory over Liverpool.

Dimitar Berbatov 


In a post-match interview, Sir Alex reflected on the thrilling victory and Dimitar Berbatov's superb hat-trick, and also referenced Fernando Torres' reaction to a foul by John O'Shea; saying: "Torres made a meal of it, an absolute meal of it. There is no doubt he tried to get the player sent off."

After finding subsequent reports emblazoned with suggestions that he had labelled the Liverpool striker 'a cheat', Sir Alex has questioned the media's focus in reporting the afternoon's events.

Speaking to MUTV, Sir Alex said: "If you think about Berbatov scoring a hat-trick - the first to score a hat-trick in 64 years in that game - you'd have thought that would get the back-page headlines, but that was stuck on the inside.

"It was all me saying Torres was a cheat, which was absolutely ridiculous press. I said, quite rightly, that I thought he had made the most of it. That's not to say the guy's a cheat. It could apply to any player in a given moment, taking advantage of a situation.

"But that was disappointing (from) a lot of the press. I thought Berbatov would have grabbed all the headlines, which he really did deserve."

Cautiously optimistic re: homophobia

Darren Purse: 'There can't be anything worse than living a lie'

Sheffield Wednesday's Darren Purse is the only player prepared to talk about the subject everyone else in football wants to avoid

Darren Purse shakes his shaven head and smiles at the suggestion that there is something quietly heroic about his words in this interview. His surprising readiness to discuss one of the oldest taboos in football does not, after all, carry any grand agenda. The 33-year-old captain of Sheffield Wednesday, a former England Under-21 international who has played in the Premier League and for six different clubs, is not about to launch a campaign against homophobia in football.

Instead, after hearing the happily chaotic sound of his children returning home from school with his wife, Lindsay, Purse talks honestly about a subject that almost every other footballer in this country seems to avoid. "I've thought about it," Purse says, "and there can't be anything worse than living a lie your whole life. But, as a captain, what would I do if a 21-year-old team-mate came to me and said: 'I don't want anyone else to know about this but I think I'm gay'? It would be hard to know the best advice to give him.
