Pepe is the next big problem for Real Madrid

first_imgIf the future of Sergio Ramos continues to be a stone in the shoe of Florentino Perez, the case of Pepe could also lead to an argument for a contract renewal in the coming months. The Portuguese central defender’s contract ends on the 30th of June 2016 and still hasn’t been renewed until this point. Pepe, who can freely negotiate with any club as of the coming January, is waiting for an offer from Real Madrid, with it expected that the Ramos situation will have consequences for his teammate. At 32 years of age, should Sergio Ramos renew his contract, Florentino Perez could show Pepe the door and he could be relegated to the bench owing to the potential of Raphael Varane – who has a contract at Real Madrid until 2020. Day by day, Florentino is looking to resolve the situation with Sergio Ramos, although the future of Pepe could also turn into a debate for Los Blancos’ club president to deal with. 25/07/2015center_img CEST Sport EN Upd. at 12:14 last_img read more

Meanwhile, Eelco Schattorie brought in Robert Lalthlamuana in place of the injured Keegan Perreira on the left back position.Advertisement Northeast United FC players rejoice as Borges’ header give them three points (Credits: ISL official website)Northeast United FC could have taken the lead at the 3rd minute itself when Jose Leudo released Nikhil Kadam wonderfully in the left flank. The 24-year-old’s cross was met by Redeem Tlang who sent the ball rolling towards an onrushing Federico Gallego. The Uruguayan’s shot, however, was blocked away by Gerson Viera who had come from behind.Both the sides put pressure on each other but failed to create any clear-cut goalscoring chance. At the 33rd-minute, the referee Tejas Nagvenkar showed a second yellow card to Sena Ralte for taking out Nikhil Kadam. The ATK players had protested a little, but Ralte didn’t show any signs of worry as he knew he deserved it.Advertisement Northeast United FC continued piling pressure on the home side, but John Johnson and Gerson Viera did well enough to avert any danger on both the halves. ATK, meanwhile, gave away possession extremely cheaply in the midfield and looked content had they had an option to get away with a point. However, ATK did create some good chances from the set pieces but suffered due to poor finishing.Northeast United FC had finally broken the deadlock in the 88th minute when Rowlin Borges got away from his marker and cushioned the ball at the back of the net from a corner kick. The away side, surely, deserved the three points. On the other hand, one has to pity John Johnson who was unlucky to be on the losing side.
