Cristiano Ronaldo or Laurent Koscielny: Whose skill is better?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says that Real Madrid might consider offloading Cristiano Ronaldo if a record sum is offered.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley is at odds as to why Rafael Benitez would not originally say Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player at Real Madrid.

While limbering up with his Real Madrid teammates in Shanghai on Wednesday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo executed an ultra-casual, no-look pass that garnered hushed awe from the fans in attendance.

Just to top it all off, Ronaldo also chucked in a nonchalant wave to the crowd just for fun.

Meanwhile, in North London, it would appear that Arsenal's...

FIFA corruption exhibition set to open in Las Vegas' Mob Museum

FIFA and Sepp Blatter have found themselves in hot water of late.

With FIFA well and truly making an exhibition of themselves over the past few months, it's only natural that world football's governing body and the corruption scandal in which it is currently situated be turned into a museum piece in its own right.

As such, a permanent display entitled "The Beautiful Game Turns Ugly" is now due to open, rather fittingly, at the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement -- otherwise known as The Mob Museum -- in Las Vegas.

Opening on the first day of...

Cristiano Ronaldo the centre of attention for Real Madrid mascots

Even with Real Madrid's plethora of star names to choose from, it would appear that the young Chinese fans in attendance at the Spanish side's recent preseason friendly against Inter Milan in Guangzhou were only interested in seeing one man.

Indeed, several of the starstruck player mascots gravitated away from the lesser lights they were supposed to accompany onto the pitch in favour of swarming around Cristiano Ronaldo before kick-off.

Rivaldo's Mogi Mirim play with 10 men as player sent off over shirt number

Despite having Rivaldo on the bench, Brazilian second division side Mogi Mirim lost 3-2 at home to Bragantino on Tuesday evening by virtue of conceding a 93rd-minute winner.

Matters weren't helped by the fact that Mogi were forced to play almost the entire second half with 10 men on the pitch after a farcical half-time kit mix-up resulted in defender Paulao being dismissed almost immediately after the restart.

Having started the game wearing the No. 4 on his back, Paulao decided to don a fresh shirt...

Rafa Benitez's wife has cheeky dig at Jose Mourinho

Rafael Benitez and Jose Mourinho ... not the best of friends.

As one of the most entertaining rivalries in world football continues to bubble along, Rafa Benitez's wife has joked that her husband has spent his entire professional life clearing up the messes left behind by Jose Mourinho.

As well as Real Madrid, Benitez has also followed Mourinho into the managerial breach at both Chelsea and Inter Milan in the past.

"Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho's old teams Rafa has coached," Montserrat Seara Benitez quipped in an interview with La Region newspaper.

Jose Mourinho pranks Chelsea staff with fake team-building exercise

With an upcoming friendly against Barcelona to prepare for, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho decided to warm-up (or should that be cool down?) beforehand by pranking members of his playing and backroom staff with a phoney team-building exercise.

The prank involved Mourinho lining up his victims on chairs and asking them to pretend they were sat on a bus, having them lean back and forth in unison while the evil Portuguese mastermind chose his moment to strike.

Sure enough, the signal came and the unsuspecting...
