Casemiro's former coach praises Real Madrid star

Casemiro's former coach praises Real Madrid star

Craig Bellamy believes Real Madrid are the only team that can stop Liverpool FC in the Champions League.

Despite what has been labelled a miserable season for the Wales worldwide, mainly due to yet another injury-ridden year minimising his opportunities for the defending Spanish and European champions, the attacker has still managed to grab 13 goals and four assists from 16 starts.

Bale was then not included in the squad for Sunday´s 2-1 win over Malaga in La Liga but Real insisted the plan had always been to rest players for the match.

Real host Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday and Bale will be hoping for another chance to state his case ahead of the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich next week.

"I spoke to the pair of them the other day, they would both like to score more goals but everyone is working well".




Mohamed Salah's record-breaking exploits at Liverpool have him ready to "jump to the next level" at Real Madrid, says fellow Egyptian Mido.

With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema often snatching the headlines for Real, Casemiro's role in the side can sometimes be overlooked, but he has certainly been one of the main fulcrums of Los Blancos' success in recent seasons. He has to keep working. "If he keeps working, I'm sure in a short time he will be scoring again".

As Ronaldo completes his transformation from winger into striker, a new left winger wouldn't go amiss and given Chelsea look set to miss out on Champions League football, Hazard could be tempted by the glamour if becoming a Galactico.

Salah signed a five year deal with Liverpool last season having joined them from the Stadio Olimpico outfit last summer, and the Galacticos have seen him as a long term replacement for Gareth Bale at the Bernabeu.
