Barcelona VP shades Cristiano Ronaldo – Barcelona vice-president Jordi Mestre has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo’s comments following Real Madrid’s loss to Atletico Madrid, saying that a Barca player would never say such.
Real Madrid has lost 0-1 to Atletico Madrid at home, a result that meant they were now 12 points of rivals Barcelona. Ronaldo was naturally displeased with the team’s performance, and said after the match: “if everyone was at my level, perhaps we would be first”.
Ronaldo had since clarified that he was talking about injuries and not player performance on the pitch, but that didn’t stop Mestre from taking a shot at him.
Mestre told Movistar : “Our team’s players would never say what Cristiano said. The club monitors a lot of things before signing players. Honestly, I could not imagine one of our players saying what Cristiano said.”
