Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari has played down Cristiano Ronaldo’s comments about a lack of humility at the club. Ronaldo spent nine successful years at the Bernabeu before leaving to join Italian side Juventus in the summer.
He virtually rewrote the record books while at the capital outfit, with 450 goals from 438 appearances in all competitions, but it seems as though things were not always to his liking.
The Portugal captain told Gazzetta dello Sport this week that Juventus is “more humble and more of a family than Madrid” but Solari has defended his club, suggesting that Ronaldo is part of its fabric. “Humility is a virtue of the greats,” he told ESPN. “That is why, and more so for its values, this club has won so much. Cristiano will be ours forever, he is a living history of Real Madrid. His feelings belong to him and no one can judge them.”
