Ronaldo Criticizes Teammates After Shocking Loss To Atletico Madrid

Football, Sports

A seemingly distraught Cristiano Ronaldo let out his feelings at the mixed zone after a shock home defeat to Atletico Madrid. The loss makes it almost impossible for Real Madrid to grab this edition of La Liga. While talking to the media, Ronaldo lamented the loss of star players like Marcelo, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Pepe. He said, “I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but when the best players aren’t available it’s harder to win. I like to play with Karim, with Bale, with Marcelo. I’m not saying the others like Lucas Vazquez, Jese (Rodriguez) and Mateo Kovacic are not good players. They are very good players, but it’s not the same.”

But perhaps he realized his comments were a little on the verge of disrespect for his team members as he quickly backtracked while talking to Marca, “When I say that, I am talking about my fitness level, not my level as a player. I am no better than any of my teammates.” Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos however praised his team mates  profusely as he said, “At the end of the day, everyone tries to perform at their maximum level and as captain I feel proud of every single teammate.”
