He was more frustrated than anyone in the stadium at the end of the game because he failed to score a couple of sitters. His determination is quite admirable, but man this guy could hit severe depression when his legs give in. I also find Juve suffering from the same thing Madrid did with Ronaldo. Other players start to lose their edge and interest. He really is a double-edged sword.
Faubert was given permission to speak to Real Madrid on 30 January 2009, with the move being completed on 31 January when he signed on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season for a reported fee of £1.5 million with an option for Real to purchase him on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee. Faubert made his Real Madrid debut on 7 February 2009 in a 1–0 win against Racing de Santander. His loan with Real Madrid was underwhelming. He missed training when he mistakenly thought he had the day off, and was pictured asleep on the bench during Real Madrid's match against Villarreal. His loan spell finished with only two appearances.
