Portuguese Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Admits he Misses Real Madrid
Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he misses his former club, Real Madrid as he received the Marca Leyenda award. He also said he hopes to return soon”
The Portuguese superstar spent a decade at Real Madrid, where he won four of his five Ballons d’Or titles and four Champions Leagues. He also won two La Liga crowns and two Copa del Rey titles, scoring a total of 450 goals in just 438 games for the club.
Christiano Ronaldo moved to Italy to join Juventus last summer in search of a new challenge. However, he admits that he misses the Spanish capital and felt sad to leave Los Blancos. He said this as he received the prestigious Marca Leyenda award in Madrid.
Ronaldo speaking at the Ceremony
“I felt sorry when I left Real Madrid. I miss both [Manchester and Madrid] but because of life’s circumstances I have lived more years in Madrid, my children and my girl were born here, so I miss Madrid more.
“This trophy will be in a very nice place in my museum. Madrid is special, I travel a lot but there are few cities like Madrid. Much of this award is derived from what I did in Madrid. It is a Spanish trophy and leaves me very honoured. Thanks to all those who have helped me to achieve it. It is a pride for me. And I hope to return to Madrid soon”.
Ronaldo also opened up on his ambitions as a child, the title that he treasures most, and his Champions League hopes for the coming season.
“I never thought about [reaching this level]. My dream was always [just] to be a professional player.
“All titles are important but possibly (The European 2016 Championship) because it is special. It is not the same, when you win something for your country and you know that it is more difficult, it is the most important thing in my career. I don’t know [if I will win the Champions League this year with Juventus]. We will try, as always. Hopefully Juventus wins.”
