Real Madrid sporting director Predrag Mijatovic said this about trying to pry Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka away from their respective clubs:

"He plays with a team who do not want to let him go. I think that sooner or later Kaka, like Cristiano Ronaldo, will end up playing at Real Madrid because this is the most important club in the world and any player wants to come here."

I would beg to differe there are plenty of other clubs people would rather play for. Don't get so high on yourself there, bub!

I think with the proven track record that Real Madrid has of acquiring top talent, I don't see his remarks to be all that off base. Of course, he could've chose his words alot better than what he did, but oh well.

So is Real Madrid the Toronto Maple Leafs of soccer or have they actually won something in the last 40 years? :P

This coming from the guy who said the Bears are definately winning the Super Bowl because of their "Gator presence."

Unfortunately, yes. But they're currently in a comparable (for them) drought. 4 years without a trophy! Ho noes!

It's one thing if I joke around on a private board, but it's a different ballgame if you're spewing that junk to the media in all seriousness.

First of all, remember that everything that comes out of Madrid has to be translated. Often, a statement takes on an entirely different meaning if just one word is mistranslated, or, short of that, changed to a close synonym. Also, I think he's wrong on both counts, as C. Ronaldo's contract negotiations with Manchester United will be successful, by my estimation, and Kaka would like to stay in Milan where he has enjoyed great success on a team with five of his countrymen.

Real Madrid are the current-day Yankees of soccer.

Instead of scouting and buying talent when it is young and about to peak. They overpay for veterans who are already past their primes.

That is a vast generalization. Their three purchases in January are 18, 19, and 20, and their summer transfers under Pedrag Mijatovic included three players over 30, but also the 25-year-old Mahmadou Diarra and 23-year-old Jose Antonio Reyes. Not to mention, both of the players referenced in the original post are certainly not past their primes. The "overpay" part, I'm not sure I can disagree with, however. :)

To answer the original question: He's arrogant, as is all of Ramon Calderon's cartel, but I'm not sure he's a jerk.
