The all players of Indian Football team gave total credit of this success to their coach Bob Houghton.Bob Houghton, an English football manager and former player, was appointed head coach of India in June 2006 by the All India Football Federation.

Cristiano Ronaldo Controversy comes to an end

Hello friends in this post i am going to tell you about the hottest issue from the field of football i.e Cristiano Ronaldo transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

Today the hottest news that you found from the field of football is the controversy of Cristiano Ronaldo.This is the first time in the history of football that £80million is given to any player for its transfer. The earlier news from the field of football is that this Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly refused to go back to Manchester United and face coach Sir Alex Ferguson.With the Spanish giants finally prepared to make an official 70-million bid, Ronaldo has decided against his return to Manchester.That will see Real make their move at last before the end of the week, with a draft plan that envisages the signing being completed by August 14 – and Ronaldo becoming the most expensive player in football history.

The only reality that i think behind the Ronaldo controversy is only the tip of the iceberg. There are other players, like Alexander Hleb and Emmanuel Adebayor of Arsenal, trying to break their contracts with their clubs in search of more lucrative deals. This cannot be allowed. All players enter into their contracts after free negotiations. Once the contract is signed, they must abide by it.Loyalty, too, seems to have become an outmoded concept as far as modern footballers are concerned, and clearly contracts mean nothing more to them than pieces of paper to be used as bargaining chips when something better comes along.

Cristiano Ronaldo & Real Madrid

Now It is not possible.

“My desire was, for some time, that Manchester had accepted my transfer to Madrid. Saying otherwise would be to trick people and my own consciousness.”He further added that his dream of playing for the Merengues is real and does not close the door on a future move to Santiago Bernabéu.
Now these Ronaldo comments put an end to the speculation and war of words between United and Real concerning the top scorer in the English Premiership last season.Now the final news from this controversy up to date is that, Ronaldo confirmed that he will play the next session for the Manchester United.
