Opinion – Real Madrid oFCarlos carpio
JOhan Cruyff said the winning team must make two entries at the end of the season so hungry players can enter the club to increase competitiveness.
You have to be as bold as Johan or clairvoyant, to look at the team in the cycle and resist the temptation to try to get the most from players who show signs that they are at the beginning of their decline.
Each of Three Champions League titles in Madrid a summer followed in which they decided to postpone the fortification measures that had appeared several months earlier, especially in the attack.
That's why Kilian Mbapppe avoided them in the summer or in 2017, as they could not convince their father and refused to sell one of their BBC trio and why they don't Mariano before the end of this year, he established that it was Neymar or none.
One of the problems for RealMadrid lies in the fact that they have not found their place in the market, which has become very hostile.
Now it’s not enough to “just” have enough money to attract a superstar, you need a superstar to want to come, and his club is ready to sell.
When quoting 250 million Euros Harry Kane or Mohamed Salah is the equivalent of "not for sale if you are not crazy."
AT real, you can assume that they may be prepared for the fact that they are crazy because you begin to suspect that the poor form in front of the gate is not just a failure, having reached five games in a row without finding the back of the net.
No, it’s not just lack of luck or lack of accuracy.
This is the lack of a quality finisher, a scorer, a specialist, who for a good reason is one of the most expensive products on the market.
In any case, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane in their ranks, Madrid finished 17 points from last season’s tempo and lost Leganes at Copa del rey after he failed to win Fuenlabrada and Numancia on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu,
If the same scenario is repeated without this key duo, it is worth thinking that the causes of the problem are not only related to No. 9 and the man in the dugout.
The largest share of responsibility is related to the fact that high-quality players are well below their usual level, unable to find a competitive disc in LaLiga Santanderconcerned about the lack of leadership.
On Saturday, Juhlen Lopetegi takeoff Marco Asencio 2-0 down with the remaining half hour is a prime example of this.
