TURIN – Cristiano Ronaldo, during an exclusive interview with France Football, explained the reasons that led him to leave Real Madrid to move to Juventus. His statements are reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I did not come to Juve for the money, I earned the same in Madrid if not more … But at Real Madrid I was no longer considered as before. The difference is that Juventus really wanted me, he told me and showed it to me ".
"Inside the club, especially from President Florentino Perez, they no longer considered me as they were at the beginning. The first four or five years, I had the feeling of being Cristiano Ronaldo, after less. And when news circulated about the fact that I wanted to leave, I had the impression that Perez would not prevent me.
The president looked at me as if I were not indispensable, he never saw me if not as a business relationship and he never told me anything that came from the heart – continues Ronaldo -. Coming to Juventus was a good choice, successful. I did a lot of good things in Madrid, I experienced incredible moments that I will always remember, with teammates who were very precious to me as well as the fans. But after nine years it was time to change clubs and go elsewhere. "
"It was not taken into account the departure of Zidane (then coach, ed.) Even if it is one of those little details that have consolidated what I already thought of the situation of the club".
