Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo believes that he doesn’t need to be friends with his teammates in order to achieve good results as opposed to the closeness of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar of Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t envy the close bonding Barcelona’s famed trio MSN has amongst themselves. Messi, Suarez and Neymar has been in sensational form for the Catalan giants and has taken the club to the top of La Liga and fired them into the Copa del Rey final.
As opposed to MSN, the Real Madrid trio nicknamed ‘BBC’ for Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano himself are not touted to be the best of friends off the field. Many has criticized it to be the factor behind the Madrid trios lack of harmony on field.
The Portuguese however feels otherwise. He has taken the success of Manchester United as an example to prove his point.
“In the Manchester United team that won the Champions League [in 2008], I did not speak with [Paul] Scholes, [Ryan] Giggs and [Rio] Ferdinand, beyond ‘hello’, but we had a great team” Ronaldo said, as reported by FourFourTwo.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been the focus point of criticism from the media since joining Real Madrid. But, the 31-year old has stated that he enjoys it and is very happy to play for Madrid.
“I do not have to dine with Benzema or invite him to my house. What is important is on the pitch. I do not need little kisses and hugs.” Ronaldo added.
Cristiano Ronaldo was in sensational form against AS Roma in the Champions League as the club from Madrid outclassed the Romans 2-0 in their first-leg victory away from home. Ronaldo scored his 12th Champions League goal of the campaign.
