Ronaldo’s best goal scoring strategy revealed by ex-teammate

first_imgIn an interview with The Athletic, Kroos divulged Ronaldo’s preference is to create his move from the left so that he can cut inside on his formidable right foot.“His (Ronaldo) favorite position was on the left,” Kroos revealed.“He sometimes played through the middle or next to another striker, but he loved starting from the left and cutting inside best. It came with the freedom of not having to track back all the time. Almost without fail, he justified having that freedom,” Kroos added.According to the Real Madrid star, Ronaldo learned to master playing from the said position and has made himself almost invincible. Even though there were times that Kroos and their other teammates had to do more running to back Ronaldo’s play, it was all worth it as the legendary forward often paid their sweat off with goals.“But we also knew that it was worth working that little bit more for him, because he would score two at the other end. He was free in his movement and always paid us back with goals.During his stint at Real Madrid, Ronaldo scored a total of 450 goals from 348 appearances. He also led the club to four Champions League titles making him a Real Madrid hero even to this day.Read Also: Ronaldo: Giggs reveals one Man United teammate better than Juve starNow that Ronaldo is already in his mid 30’s, many are still at awe with the way he seemingly returned to his Real Madrid days.

Derek Carr should lead the Raiders into Las Vegas — and get more credit

first_imgDerek Carr exited his last-ever game in Oakland on Dec. 15 to boos from Raiders fans and uncertainty from upper management. He’d failed to lead a second-half scoring drive in a 20-16 loss to the Jaguars — further evidence for some that his performance level had dipped to an unacceptable level.Carr is signed for three more years at a $19.6 million average annual value, but it’s reportedly possible he will not be under center when the Raiders debut in Las Vegas in 2020. Coach Jon Gruden is said to have a “significant disconnect” with Carr, and an offseason trade does not seem far-fetched. There is reason to believe an offense featuring Carr in Las Vegas could be productive. The Raiders have the best rookie running back in the league in Josh Jacobs — an ideal complement to the passer and his unfinished receiving corps that includes a rapidly developing Hunter Renfrow. They also possess a strong line.So rather than fracture that respectable and still-growing attack, general manager Mike Mayock could instead address his team’s horrendous defense or culture of back-stabbing.But maybe that kind of complex improvement is beyond this franchise. Scapegoating the quarterback, after all, is its time-honored way to side-step genuine introspection. “I’m getting old now. I want to let it fly,” Gruden told reporters recently. “I want big plays. I want excitement. These bubble screens and checkdowns only go so far with me.”MORE: Mark Davis infuriates Oakland on his way outCarr deserves far more credit than he has received, though. Despite his flaws, and an uninspiring 7-9 record this year, he remains the Raiders’ best choice at quarterback. He is a risk-averse, sturdy passer on a team that was plagued by dysfunction at the position for an entire decade before drafting him.Carr’s numbers paint him as a league-average quarterback. He finished 2019 second in completion percentage, 11th in interception percentage and 21st in touchdown percentage. He carried the ninth-best passer rating. He was tied for seventh in number of game-winning drives led.As for the narrative that Carr is weak-minded, or ill-suited to handle rigors of professional football? It’s nonsense, and a toxic reminder of how players bound for crippling physical and mental disorders in retirement are unfairly judged.Carr broke his fibula in 2016. He’s often played through busted ankles and back problems. There is little evidence to suggest he doesn’t fit the gross, pedestaled model of “toughness” in the NFL.Here’s a quote from Carr from when he re-entered a game following a hit to the head and nasty ankle turn last season: “As soon as it happened, you grab it because it’s painful, and you try to stand up and it’s not good, but they ran it back, so I had to get ready as fast as I could. I told the trainer to hurry up and tape it so I could finish with my teammates.”Carr has also dealt with extensive organizational overhaul. He’s played for three head coaches and four offensive coordinators since 2014. He’s seen his best receiver, Amari Cooper, get traded to Dallas, and the team’s top defender, Khalil Mack, be dealt to Chicago. He endured the Antonio Brown clown show while trying to prepare for this season.last_img read more
