Karim Benzema escaped an accident unhurt yesterday. After leaving Valdebebas, Benzema drove his Audi into a barrier, and then an oak tree in the suburbs of Madrid. The car is apparently pretty badly damaged, but fortunately the French striker is not hurt.
Andres Iniesta has launched his own Facebook Page! Yay! And here’s the vid of him inviting fans:
Rumour has it that unsettled Yaya Toure wants out from Treble winning Barcelona, with his sights set on Manchester United or Chelsea. The Ivory Coast midfielder is unhappy with the treatment he has recieved from Pep Guardiola. He has recently been pushed onto the bench by the emergence of Keita; and God only knows why Pep insists on playing Sergio Busquets over Yaya. Yaya’s bro, Kolo is at Manchester City, so should he move to England, he’ll have family for company!
His agent Dimitri Seluk said: “We are not happy with this obviously. He is not playing. It is very strange not to be having minutes. If a team like Chelsea or Manchester United would come to us, we are obviously open to talking without any kind of problem
“Yaya won’t just sit and wait. He is 26 years old and is nominated for the Golden Ball award. It is ridiculous for a player like this not to be playing.
“I don’t know what will happen, but I can say once thing for sure: my player won’t be remaining on the bench. This is 100 per cent for sure.
“It would be a mistake for Barca to let him go. For instance, when Liverpool sold Xabi Alonso, Liverpool went downhill. That’s the same situation here. Yaya is a key player in organising the midfield and in attacking”.
We think that Pep needs to cut the apron strings with Sergio and give Toure more playing time!
The Barcelona guys have released a book called “Barca: the Best Year of our Life”
