Lionel Messi says he was “surprised” by Ronaldo’s move to Juventus and says that Real Madrid are worse without him.
Lionel Messi spoke to Catalunya Radio and says that Real Madrid are a little worse off now that Cristiano Ronaldo has moved away from the club.
“Real Madrid are one of the best in the world with players and a squad that is very good, it’s evident that the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo has made them a little bit less good and it makes Juve a clear favourite to win the Champions League,” he said about Ronaldo’s departure.
“It surprised me,” he said about Ronaldo’s decision to quit Real Madrid. “I didn’t imagine him outside of Madrid and neither to go to Juventus. There are many team who would have liked him.”
