A former Real Madrid player has stated that he wishes superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had taken after FC Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi in doing a certain thing.
Ronaldo spent nine incredible years at Los Blancos, where he broke several records and became one of the greatest players in history.
However, ex-Real playmaker Rafael van der Vaart, who has said previously that he prefers Messi to the Portuguese, believes Ronaldo should have been more loyal to his former club.
"You see, Messi… Messi would never leave Barcelona," he said, according to Football.ua.
"To be honest, Ronaldo should have stayed at Madrid. He should have followed Messi."
Ronaldo joined Juventus for a mammoth fee earlier in this transfer window, and has since played two matches for his new club.
Messi has been a one-club player throughout his senior career so far, although he has admitted a few times that he could retire in Argentina.
