Capello demands Cassano, Beckham, Ronaldo shown door
Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello wants to
see David Beckham, Antonio Cassano and Ronaldo all booted out of the
club this month.
"We are not counting on Cassano," he declared yesterday. "Ronaldo is a
Real Madrid player because he has no contract with any other side.
"He is injured and therefore won't play this weekend. We are talking to
him and so is the club."
The harshest words were reserved for Beckham, who has already signed a
�128m contract with LA Galaxy to start from June.
"Beckham will train with the team but he won't play. He has always been
a great professional, but a player who has such an important contract
with another club, we cannot count on him. The fact he wanted to go was
down to him, not to me."
It's now likely the 31-year-old England international will make the
switch to America in time for the start of the MSL season in April,
although there is the possibility he could be loaned out to another
European side for six months.
