Bernabéu Bites, 11.03.2013: Happy Birthday Diego

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Oh Sunday. Here you are again. Let's get into another rendition of Bernabéu Bites delivered straight from the couch I'll be taking my Sunday nap on later today.

Diego López turns 32 years old today. I'm sure you will all join me in wishing Diego a happy birthday if you haven't already. What a blessing he's been for Real Madrid.

As you recall, Fábio Coentrão took a nasty spill after rolling his ankle in the first half of yesterday's match.


The club's official site reports that Coentrão suffered a sprained ankle and the injury will continue to be monitored. The player fought through the pain to finish the first half.

The Daily Mirror has stirred up speculation on Sami Khedira's future. Reportedly, Manchester City are interested in providing the German midfielder improved wages. Khedira's contract is up at the end of next season. His situation may be intertwined with that of Xabi Alonso's, whose contract is up at the end of this season.

Howard Webb will officiate Tuesday's Champions League match against Juventus in Turin. I would like to take this opportunity to further plaster the image of Rhiannon Jones across ManagingMadrid's web space because, well, why not?
