The Marca Delfín journalist Melero is very critical of what is being said about winning being tiring. He was also offended by the performance offered by Real Madrid players in Riyadh. “These guys are the same ones who have just won LaLiga and the most extraordinary Champions League in history, overly big words for the biggest club in Europe ,” he first said.
However, for Melero this is a thing of the past but at the moment the situation is critical. “We don’t know if it’s more in the head than in the legs. A lethargic Madrid now that the slope of January is rising, with two objectives in La Cerámica and San Mamés that must be reached if we want to overcome them and regain good sensations. Xavi’s Barcelona took advantage of the Super Cup final to give themselves a tribute and enjoy it. More than the menu, which is also good, it is the aftertaste of Barça’s return”.
Finally, he refers to Mbappé and the act of grace granted to him. A very fair opinion, as a big part of Madrid’s forgiveness will depend on the results achieved by the team by the end of the season. “Mbappé is relevant because his name came back to many people in Madrid after the disaster in Riyadh. Let’s face it, forgiving Kylian will be easier if Madrid keep losing. Either ‘We are the champions’ or we forgive Mbappé,” he added.
