Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player he ever signed to the Spanish Giants.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in the summer of 2009 in a then world record fee of about €94 million.
The 34-year-old scored 450 goals in 438 appearances and led them to win Champions League title four times.
Despite signing the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Kaka, and David Beckham, Florentino Perez says Ronaldo’s arrival was his best bit of business.
” Cristiano was an exemplary professional who never caused problems,’ he told Onda Cero.
” He’s the greatest player I ever signed and my relationship with him was always excellent, both as a player and a man.”
Fiorentino Perez also used the opportunity to debunk reports that Ronaldo, who won 16 trophies in the Spanish capital, departed due to bad blood.
” I assumed he wanted new challenges and he took advantage of that moment to embrace them, ‘ he said. ” We didn’t have any problems regarding money.
” There were rumours about him wanting to leave because of the tax case, but that’s not the reality of the situation. He wanted a change and to improve his contract, so he found it at Juventus and everyone was happy .”
