Mourinho speaks out about Ronaldo and Real Madrid

Posted on September 15, 2012 by admin

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has spoken out about the current situation regarding star player Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo recently spoke about his unhappiness at the Spanish club and it was rumoured that, unless he was offered a new bumper contract, with a £500,000 per week wage, then he would be looking to move elsewhere. However Ronaldo has continuously dismissed the claims that it’s all about the money and he has stated that he is just unhappy for professional reasons. A link could be to the recent talk of teammate Kaka, being in disagreement with Mourinho, while Ronaldo has also spoke out about that he doesn’t feel respected in the dressing room.

Mourinho said;

“If he is sad and he plays like he plays then that’s perfect for me, he can carry on doing the same. I am a football coach and my responsibilities are the results and for that reason when the results are not good you kill me. That (the game) is what I need to focus on.”

“Cristiano is working at his top level, he is playing at his top level, some days better and some days worse, obviously he can’t score in every game or be decisive in every game. He is always a team player, a player who in terms of training and discipline is absolutely exemplary. “

“I don’t have to worry about things that for me are supplementary and not fundamental.”

“Now give Cristiano what he needs, which is peace and quiet and to play football, which is what he knows best and what he likes best.”

“We should all evaluate his performance on the pitch and nothing more. Tomorrow in the 80th minute, the 75th minute, he has played a horrible game, he’s not in good shape, he’s tired, off, another player on. That’s how we have to judge people, especially those we don’t know.”

The 27 year old joined the Spanish champions 3 years ago from Manchester United in a world record £80 million deal. The Portuguese captain reportedly earns £11 million per year, but will speak with Madrid officials, including club president Perez as well as Mourinho.
