Key player next season. The dynamic and fluidity of Madrid's attacking game is on a completely different level when he's playing. He knows how to pass and where to move, I assume its a joy to be playing with him more than any other player at Madrid atm.

Apparently Gago has been talking shit lately about Real Madrid. There are no links on AS/Marca yet (i found out via twitter). I expect them up shortly. But yeah, he's as good as gone.

Not really shit talk if you ask me. Sometimes the truth just hurts :P

Gago (Real Madrid): "Barcelona are the best team in history. Far better than Real Madrid. It was impossible to beat them this year." [espn]

Fernando Gago (Real Madrid): "Our fans kept on thinking it was possible to beat Barcelona. They just couldn't admit it wasn't." [espn]

In all seriousness though, it's pretty damn weird for any Real Madrid player to come out with comments such as these.

That's shocking from Gago. AS has caught it: http://www.as.com/fu...asdasftb_44/Tes

If Alves doesn't dive and we would have been facing United in the final. Simple as that.

watched that interview a few hours ago, can't remember his exact words, but I'm pretty sure he was misquoted. He basically said that FCB is one of the best clubs in the world and then the subject moved on to the 4 deathly clasicos and how badly it hurt the RM team and mostly, fans. If I remember correctly, the "fans don't get it" quote means that they would never know what it means to play against your historic rival 4 times in a row. One of Argentina's biggest clubs, River Plate (hello Higuain, Di Stefano) is headed for relegation. In their latest match, some fans actually broke into the field and demanded more courage and better play from the players in a rather agressive way. The issue is on everybody's mouths rn, even a constant hashtag on Twitter Argentina, and what Gago meant was that sometimes the fans demand better result from the players but in RM's case, it's hard to stand back and realize that they're playing 4 times in a row against their biggest rival, who is not easy to beat, we all know that. One of the best teams in the world, let's just admit it. There's always trouble on argentine-to-english translations and misquotations since argentines take everything lightly when they speak, mostly in this interview in which they talked about the "cassette" some fb players "play" out of their mouths on interviews/press confs when they don't want to say how they really feel (we ALL know this cassette that brings nothing new to the table and makes everything seem okay). I don't know the dude personally but I'm 90% sure he was conveniently misquoted. What I understood from the interview was that RM was thrown into the situation of playing 4 times in a row against the best team in the world, and when the fans demand more quality, it may not be so easy to get it.

If Gago said that, he needs to gtfo as soon as possible. Schuster was sacked for a similar statement and he was much more important than Gago to the project.

This is a huge assumption. There is no way we can know how the matches would have gone had Pepe been on the pitch.

270 minutes of play with no scoring from open play says otherwise.

Lets just hope that he was really misquoted.Else it's quite idiotic to blurt out a statement like that.
Actually thought that he might stay another season to prove his worth & Lassana leaving.
Now,seems like it might be the other way around.

Gago's never been that sort of player. I thought it may have been something like that when I read it. I have to say though; he shouldn't be putting himself in such situations.
