Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers claims Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale could run Olympic 100 metres…
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Real Madrid stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are so fast, they could run in the Olympic 100m final, reports Goal.com.
While the superstar duo are quick, the Reds will only have to face one of them, as Bale has been ruled out of the match with an injury.
However, while Rodgers is worried about Ronaldo and the (formerly fit) Welshman, he did also say that Real Madrid have other talents who will have to be watched on Wednesday night…
Liverpool will be facing the Carlo Ancelotti’s exceptional side on Wednesday night in their Champion’s League Group Stage match up. The Premier League side will be looking to bounce back after their surprise loss to Basel in the last round of fixtures.
Rodgers told AS, “Real Madrid have amazing talents all over the field and they have the technique to play in small spaces and when the space opens up there is no one better on the counter attack because in Ronaldo and Bale, they have two players who could be in the Olympic 100 metres final.”
Rodgers also went on to name a few others of Real Madrid’s all star line up who will be a danger to the Reds on Wednesday night. Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Sergio Ramos were all namechecked by the Liverpool Boss. If Liverpool are to get a result against the Galacticos, they’re going to need a big performance at Anfield.
