Ronaldo on Florentino Pérez
Ronaldo said in the interview: “In the club, especially with the behavior of the president, I thought that I was not being treated as the same as I was treated in beginning.”
“The President saw me in such a way that he suggested to me that I was no longer compulsory, if you know what I mean, this is the reason I thought about leaving,” Ronaldo added in his statement.
This 33-year-old player is confident that after scoring 44 goals in the last season for Real Madrid and 7 goals for Juventus this season, he is a strong contender to win his sixth Ballon d’Or.
“Surely I want to win, this sixth ballon d’Or!” Ronaldo expressed his hope.
Ronaldo said: “If I say something to you on the contrary, then it will be a lie. I work hard for it. Like I would say that I want to score without obsession and want to win the match.”
