CRISTIANO RONALDO ON REAL MADRID’S DEPARTURES AND SIGNINGS 

Cristiano Ronaldo bit his tongue on being asked about the changes in the Real Madrid squad which won the Décima, though he let it be seen that he is not entirely happy: “I have a very definite opinion, but I am not always allowed to say what I think. Otherwise, tomorrow I’d be on the front pages of all the papers and I don’t want that”, he said.

“If I were in charge, perhaps I wouldn’t have done it like this. But if the President thinks that the best thing for the team is to sign the players he signed, and let others leave, then his decisions must be respected and supported”, he said, during an event held at the Jarama motor racing circuit by the watch company Tag Heuer.

He admitted that with the new players, Real Madrid’s style of play will change. “With the new players, our style is going to change, but it might change for the better or for the worse. Let’s hope it will be for the better because they are top quality players. What usually happens is that they adapt well. Di María and Xabi Alonso were very important to us, but they aren’t here anymore and we have to be happy with the newcomers. I’m sure that things will go well for us”.
