Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale said that the team would have to improve in both attack and defence after their disappointing result against Legia Warsaw in a Group F Champions League encounter.

The forward scored the match opener in the first minute and Karim Benzema got the second. Madrid seemed set for maximum points. Madrid had thumped the side 5-1 earlier in Spain, and Borussia Dortmund had defeated the same side 6-0. However, the Polish side scored three goals to make it 3-2.

Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, Miroslav Radovic and Thibault Moulin were the players that recorded their names on the goal sheet. Mateo Kovacic got the equalizer for the Spanish side; else, it would have been a bad result for Madrid.

“We need to be better defensively, and more clinical with the chances we create,” Bale said. “We just need to learn from the mistakes we made. We must take the positives, learn from this and be stronger from it,” Bale said to BeIn Sports after the game.

The home team did not have their fans cheering them to victory as incidents involving the team’s ultras ensured their prohibition. Just the fans of the La Liga side were on the pitch, and it was a small contingent.

“It was a strange game, especially with the stadium. That’s no excuse, though. We’re not happy with the result, we need to learn from this and bounce back stronger,” Bale added.


Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who was injured in the final of the Euro 2016, has returned to training with his club Real Madrid ahead of the start of the new campaign.

He wasn’t in action when Madrid narrowly piped 3-2 Sevilla to the UEFA Super cup title on Tuesday. Sevilla were almost crowned European Champions being that they were Europa League winners after trouncing Liverpool last term, but a late goal from Sergio Ramos pushed the game beyond regular time where Dani Carvajal scored a stunning solo effort.

Philippe Senderos has become the forgotten man at Villa Park.

Aston Villa have finally decided to make a decision on his future. They have agreed to end his contract under the mutual consent. This has allowed the former Fulham defender to join Switzerland outfit Grasshoppers. The 30-year-old has immense experience of playing in the Premier League. He represented in this team like Arsenal, Everton, and Fulham before joining Villa in 2014. However, his time at the club has coincided with a huge turmoil in terms of form. Former manager Paul Lambert was unable to prevent the slide down the table.

Even though he had joined the club only a few months ago, Senderos found himself out of favour from November 2014. He has not played for the club since then. Just when it seemed that the Switzerland international would see out his contract at Villa Park, the club has announced his departure. His return to Switzerland will help him claim his place in the national team. Since making his debut in 2005, Senderos has gone on to make more than 50 appearances for the national team.

Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that his priority next season will be to guide the club to Champions League success. Real Madrid are the most successful team in the European competition after having lifted the famous trophy nine times in their history. AC Milan are the second team, but they have only seven trophies to their credit. However, it has been quite awhile since Real Madrid lifted the famous trophy – more than a decade to be precise. Real Madrid last tasted Champions League success under current Spanish manager Vicente del Bosque back in 2001.

They are looking to extend their record by winning the 10th Champions League title, but it has eluded them for the best part of a decade. Real Madrid recently appointed manager José Mourinho not only to wrestle the la Liga title back from Barcelona, but also to achieve this elusive dream. The Portuguese manager has won the famous competition twice with two different clubs, although he failed to achieve the dream with English club Chelsea. He is looking to become the first manager to win the title with three different clubs. As a result, he will be focusing on the prospect of winning the title next season according to the Portuguese.

“I want to win the Champions League with three distinct teams. Now Real Madrid has won the league, the objective for next season is to win the Champions League. I don’t believe I could manage a national team that only plays a game every two months and an official tournament every two years. I need the pressure of facing two or three games every week,” said José Mourinho regarding the priorities for next season. Real Madrid are not expected to change the squad dramatically after failing in the semi-final stage of the competition in succession.


Real Madrid were recently increased the difference between them and 2nd placed Barcelona to 10 points, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired 4 – 2 victory over Levante recently.

It was a game which Real saw as an important game to put even more breathing space between them and their rivals Barca, who had lost on the Saturday 3 – 2 to Osasuna. Levante took a shock lead after 5 minutes, but the Madridistas were not going to go down without a fight, and thanks to a Ronald hat trick, they claimed another comprehensive 3 points.

The goal that completed that Ronaldo’s hat trick was an exceptional goal, a fierce dipping shot that left the Levante goalkeeper helpless, a sight that Manchester United fans had grown accustomed to during his time at Old Trafford. With such a large gap between Madrid and Barca at this stage of the season, Mourinho’s men look to be well set for their first La Liga title since 2008.

Incredibly, despite the successful season Real have enjoyed so far, tensions are still thought to be running fairly high, with manager Mourinho being the subject of many rumours linking him to other managerial positions and of his disliking of the lifestyle as Real Madrid manager.

There have also been rumours that Mourinho has had heated disagreements with some of his key players such as Sergio Ramos, but the club has moved quickly to attempt to dismiss these rumours. Madrid appear to be well set for a hard earned league title, and with a good draw in the Champions League, there is every chance this could be Madrid’s big year, and Mourinho will continue his managerial dominance.
