Real Madrid’s Global Ambassador Roberto Carlos made a statement on a club event on several topics including Seria A Juventus and her superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese playmaker who is the all-time highest goal scorer in Real Madrid put his 9 years’ time at the Spanish capital to an end by joining the Old Lady last summer in a big money move. Media outfit has commented the audacious move by the Turin based outfit as a move for the UEFA Champions league, with Ronaldo incidentally being the all-time highest goal scorer in the European premier competition.
While several pundit tout Juventus for the trophy, Carlos believes that the trophy is won by the team with the best balance on the pitch not by the quality of players.
“Ronaldo? Cristiano is an icon. Juventus have undoubtedly strengthened but the other day we saw how they lost against Manchester United. This shows that in modern football not always those who have the best team win, but those who can find more balance in the field,” he said.
“CR7 represents a lot, but nobody wins the Champions League alone. Real Madrid? The victory in Plzen [5-0] was great, restoring confidence to the group. Now you can continue to work and improve so that the team has the chance to play another final, also because it is played here in Madrid,” Roberto Carlos added.
Meanwhile Ronaldo and Juventus visit San Siro to face AC Milan on Sunday.
