|LA Galaxy vs Real Madrid: Friendly match presentation|
At the press conference in the auditorium of the CAA Sports headquarters to present the friendly were Mourinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Casillas, Bruce Arena, David Beckham and Landon Donovan, with Zidane sat as a spectator.
Beckham, who received congratulations from Mourinho at the birth of his daughter, took the floor to remember old times: "This match will be wonderful. Real Madrid was my first team after Manchester United and I am delighted to face them. They have a young and talented group of players. Cristiano and Casillas are part of an incredible team".
Meanwhile, the captain of the Galaxy, Landon Donovan, is also eager to play against whites: "This is a great experience and I am delighted to play it. It may be a friendly, but the level of our opponent points at how important this game is".
The Galaxy have an official game on Wednesday and coach Bruce Arena, is concerned about the friendly match: "Probably we will need 22 players and we do not have them at the moment". The coach recalls the two defeats 'harvested' by the Galaxy against Real Madrid in 2005 and 2010: "We've been through this, several years ago. We played good at first half of the matches, but Real Madrid takes another luxury eleven for the second half and you know, there's not much to do".
Cristiano Ronaldo, another major claim, discussed the U.S. soccer: "The Galaxy are the best team in Los Angeles. It is an honor to play against them. It's a good game to start the preseason and will make people have fun with spectacle despite the fact the preseason has only just started".
