Full-back Marcelo has stated that Real Madrid misses Cristiano Ronaldo after he departed from Real Madrid to play for Juventus. He also said that it should be expected.
After playing 9 excellent seasons, Ronaldo had left the club in the month of July to join Juventus, the Serie A champions. Madrid soon started feeling the absence of the star of Portuguese team as they struggle quite early in the campaign prior to making some type of recovery under the coach, Santiago Solari even though they are still Barcelona by 5 points in the La Liga.
Marcelo proceeds on to say that it was pretty clear that Real Madrid is going to be missed since he is one of the best players in the world. However, he believes that the Europeans are always going to dominate the game. According to Marcelo, Cristiano Ronaldo apart from being a player is also a great teammate. As a matter of fact, he is a friend of Marcelo like he is friend with Luka and Sergio.
He states that it is pretty obvious that when the players in the world are not present in your team, you are surely going to miss them. However, he doesn’t want to imply that their club doesn’t have the best players in the world in each and every position. According to him, any team would like having Cristiano with them. However, he believes that Madrid will keep being Madrid irrespective of the players coming and going.
