Cristiano Ronaldo lanza la remontada:
“On Tuesday I will speak”
“90 minutes at the Bernabéu is a very long time.” Real Madrid’s legendary player Juanito once said. 1984/85, first leg of the UEFA Cup semifinal between Inter Milan and Real Madrid. After Milan won 2-0 at San Siro, legendary Real Madrid’s forward Juanito approached Milan defender Graziano Bini and said, “Noventa minuti en el Bernabéu son molto longo” (90 minutes at the Bernabéu is a very long time). Real Madrid won 3-0 in the Spanish capital and played in the final. Since then Inter Milan knew how long one minute at the Bernabéu truly is…

“I hope you can fucking explain to me, because I still don’t understand…Why the players on the bench have not fucking put their shirts on?”
Mourinho scolding Morata, Nacho and Callejon on the bench of San Mamés.
“… I think at the moment though, I think Cristiano is in fantastic form. Messi as well, but I think Cristiano has got maybe that edge this month to actually go all the way and become Champions League top scorer and maybe lift the trophy with it.”
You either love or hate the special one Jose Mourinho. After reading this you will have a new respect for the man. After making a football fans dream come true.
Abel arrived in Madrid with no ticket to the game, and worse, no place to stay. He sat on the roadside outside of the Bernabeu for five hours. Then…serendipity.
“It was a miracle that I saw him,” Mourinho said. “I saw Abel seated on the road outside the training ground. I was leaving in my assistant Rui Faria’s car, and there are always a lot of people outside. But I told Rui, ‘Stop! It’s the guy from Los Angeles.’”
“Amigo! What are you doing here?” Mourinho asked.
“I came to visit you guys,” Rodríguez replied. “It’s my first time in Europe, and my dream has been to come and see games. I was hoping to see El Clásico.”
After Abel told Jose his predicament, Mourinho set him up in Real Madrid’s luxury hotel and got him a ticket for the game. At dinner the night before the game, Mourinho told Rodriguez his trip wouldn’t end with El Clasico.
“I told him, ‘No way, you come to Manchester with us and work as a kit man,’” Mourinho said. “‘You help us and you live a bigger dream, a Champions League match from the inside!’”
Rodriguez told Mourinho he’s love to, but that he would naturally pay for everything. Mourinho’s response? A bucketful of awesome.
Mourinho shook his head and smiled. “When you’re with me in Europe, you don’t pay for s—.”
A truly amazing story.
