DYou can do it without Cristiano Ronaldo, the others do not. There is a crisis mood among the royalists. "Spain's next shipwreck under Lopetegui", wrote Spain's sports newspaper the day after the embarrassing 0-1 draw at CSKA Moscow and reckoned with relish that Real Madrid have not scored a goal under the new coach for five hours and 19 minutes.
Whether it is the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, who knows? His new club Juventus Turin caused an Italian gala evening in the Champions League with their own 3-0 over the Young Boys Bern and the 5-0 of AS Roma against Viktoria Pilsen even without the suspended superstar for clear conditions. "Compliments, guys, for another important win," condemned the suspended Ronaldo his Juve teammates via Instagram.
The Turin lead in their group H with the optimal yield of six points from two games, five goals scored Juventus, none conceded the team of Massimo Allegri. It would have been better if the Italian record champions could hardly get used to the upcoming duel in the European football championship with Manchester United, which is a special one for Ronaldo in particular. Before joining Real, the 33-year-old matured at Old Trafford and became a world-class player.
There where on Tuesday evening, the boos of the fans in the direction of the team coach José Mourinho were hard to miss. The fact that it was only enough for a zero against Valencia CF and the fans of ManUnited now waiting for four home games for a goal of their team, made the situation for Mourinho even more delicate. Shortly before the 0: 0 club legend Paul Scholes verbally attacked the eccentric Portuguese verbally: "I think his mouth is out of control. I think he's exposing the club. "
Mourinho seemed to be the only one who could do something positive after the goalless draw. "I'm happy with the performance, I'm happy with the effort, I'm happy with the improvement," he said. The reactions of the fans, he also took more relaxed. The public has a right to freedom of expression. Against Valencia Juventus had started away with a 2-0 victory in the Champions League, Ronaldo had seen the red card after he had drawn an opponent by the hair. Mourinho's compatriot was suspended for a game and Ronaldo is back in Manchester on 23 October.
Whether Mourinho sits on the bench of United then is uncertain. The "Independent" led a list of possible successors, led by Ronaldo's former coach at Real, Zinedine Zidane. In Madrid, however, one should also remember with wistfulness the success of the 46-year-old "Zizou". "We did not expect that we would not get points here. Of course, the mood in the cabin is not good, "said Real's world footballer Luka Modric. Coach Julen Lopetegui promised: "This team will score goals early enough and return to winning ways."
