Sergio Ramos: Welcome to Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo!
Nereida Gallardoâ€™s ex-boyfriend, Sergio Ramos, will be united with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid next season. The 23-year-old was expected to be the rival of Ronaldo â€“ had the Portuguese signed for Madrid last year.
But now, it seems like there is no resentment from Ramos towards Ronaldo, despite having shared the same woman, Nereida Gallardo.
According to Sergio Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s astronomical salary sum will not even be an issue. Speaking to the Mirror, the Spanish defender affirmed:
â€œPeople are always talking about what footballers are earning, but the truth is that the only people who know are the club, the player and the playerâ€™s agent,â€
â€œIf youâ€™re happy with your own wages, you wonâ€™t be worried about what others are making. It is up to your agent to look after your contract, and Madrid look after their players very well so I donâ€™t see any problems in that regards.â€
Then defending Real Madridâ€™s will of creating an all-star team, Sergio Ramos said of Ronaldo:
â€œMadrid must always have the best footballers in the world because we are the biggest and most famous club. Itâ€™s as simple as that.
â€œCristiano has been the best player in the world for the last two years and it is only right that he wears the white shirt of Madrid. When you put on this shirt, you know that youâ€™ve arrived at the very top. There is no greater honour.â€
Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s former teammate at Manchester United, Ruud Van Nilsterooy, also salutes Cristiano Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu:
“Good players are always welcome. Cristiano is fantastic,”
“He is very young, but he has a lot of experience after playing in the World Cup, Euro, Champions League and English competitions.”
“He is strong both physically and technically and I think that he has everything,”
