The prodigious white decade

first_imgThis beginning was born with Mourinho on the bench. The Portuguese managed to win three titles, one for each season he trained at Madrid. He left with the misfortune of not raising the Champions League, target for which he was signed. Of course, he won the Cup against Barcelona and a League: it was the first team that reached 100 points, setting a record number of goals scored, 121 (more than 3 goals per game on average). Yes the Orejona would win his successor in office: Ancelotti. The whites defeated Atlético in Lisbon after 12 years of crossing (4-1). With the Italian, in addition, the Cup was reconquered (also against Barça). Ten seasons, 18 titles. Blunt and real. Since raising the Cup title in 2011 (after 18 years of waiting), Madrid has become the mythical phrase of Van Nistelrooy with goals and ketchup. It was to mark Cristiano at Barcelona and since then, he has raised a title at least in each season.This Madrid Gold Generation has four Champions, two Leagues, three European Super Cups, four Club World Cups, two Copa del Rey and three other Super Cups in Spain. To these collective titles we must add five Golden Balls. Four are held by Cristiano (2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017), plus the one conquered by Modric in 2018. However, during these ten campaigns, the most decisive technician has been Zidane: he has 10 titles in just three years and three months. Add more than half of the successes: 55.55%. Throughout its stage, no one has earned more than French throughout the European continent. In the saints’ Madrid coach, Miguel Muñoz is ahead of him, who, with 14, is the most successful coach of the white team (Muñoz spent 14 seasons leading the whites (1960-1974)). He only resists the Copa del Rey. The coach has not been able to win it either as a player (he lost twice the final of said competition) or as a coach. Now, this Madrid who likes challenges, has the difficult, not impossible, challenge to match and overcome the Madrid of Di Stéfano, Gento and the Yé-yé: from the 1953-54 campaign until 1969-70, the Whites added 23 titles in 17 consecutive seasons (La Galerna was in all). They emphasize especially their five European Cups won consecutively. Something unpublished to date.Nor is La Quinta del Vultre left behind: they won five Leagues and two UEFAS in a row from 1984-85 until the 1990-91 campaign to add 12 titles. The same figure raised Galactic Madrid (1996-97 until 2003-04): the three Champions won between 1998 and 2002 stand out, which brought a new winning cycle in Europe.But Zizou’s Madrid is not thinking of stopping now: it aspires to continue filling the emblematic showcases of Santiago Bernabéu with titles …center_img Zidane factorlast_img read more

VIDEO Mike Tyson threw a drink at Don King during a Boxing

first_imgLegendary promoter Don King was the driving promotional force behind Mike Tyson dominated the heavyweight division in the 80’s and became one of the most famous athletes in the world. Over the years the relationship has deteriorated, with Tyson accusing King of using him taking advantage of him and his naivety and contributing to his eventual downfall.The two appeared at a Boxing Hall of Fame event this weekend in Calistoga, New York, and apparently Tyson isn’t ready to bury the hatchet. During the panel discussion, King gave Tyson a friendly pat on the shoulder as he walked past him on his way to his seat. Tyson wasn’t feeling the olive branch and instead threw his drink on King. King kept walking rather than risk getting his face pounded in. Probably a wise move. Apparently, time doesn’t heal all wounds.
