A Real Madrid player has responded to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s suggestion that his new club is more of a family than Los Blancos are, despite the Portuguese sharing close bonds with some of his former teammates in his nine years in Spain.
Following his big-money move to the Bianconeri earlier in the transfer window, Ronaldo suggested that he feels his new club is more like a family than Real are, comments that captain Sergio Ramos later said he was confused by.
Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos has now also responded to what the five-time Ballon d’Or winner said, saying that Los Blancos will not worry about the 33-year-old’s comments.
“Ronaldo will not be there but this should not interest us,” he said, according to Calciomercato.
“What he says will not affect us, we know what Lopetegui wants and we are ready to put it on the field.”
Ronaldo spent nine incredible years at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he achieved a remarkable goalscoring record of 450 goals in 438 matches.
Real began their LaLiga campaign with a 2-0 home win over Getafe on Sunday night, courtesy of strikes from Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale.
