Real Madrid are a club who have always been portrayed as ruthlessly arrogant with tall talks and big dreams from presidents. Although Ramon Calderon is not much different from his predecessors in these terms, he has a touch of caution in his constitution.
Goal.com reports that Calderon made an unscheduled visit to Real’s Valdebebas training complex on Wednesday to personally congratulate the players for the Madrid derby victory over Atletico at the weekend. Although the mood was one of buoyancy and confidence, Senor Calderon didn’t want to let complacency creep into his players’ psyche.
Goal.com quotes Calderon as saying this to his players:
”Congratulations, but we still have not won anything yet, eh?”
A very sensible thing to do. Real Madrid are a massive seven points clear at the top of the table in Spain and already seem to have one hand on the league trophy. But Calderon is certainly clever enough to note that in football there is no guarantee.
