'I Don't Understand Ronaldo's Move To Juve'

A former player, widely recognised as one of the greatest French footballers of all time, has spoken of his confusion regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to Juventus.

Juve Star Causes Stir With Ronaldo Free-Kick Comments

Many were bewildered earlier in this transfer window when reports suggested that Ronaldo was on his way to Italy, following nine incredible and important years at Los Blancos.

In Spain, Ronaldo went from one of the greatest players in the world to one of the greatest players of all time, winning the biggest and most coveted trophies in the game.

Michel Platini, the former UEFA president, was also surprised by the forward’s desire to quit Real for the Italian giants, especially at his age.  

"I think it's odd that at 33 years of age he's left 'his' Real Madrid, with who he has won three Champions Leagues in a row, to try a new adventure," he told L'Equipe.

"When I was 32 lots of teams wanted me, but I retired because I was tired.

"I can't understand the move."

Upon signing for the Bianconeri, Ronaldo stated that it was hos hunger for a new challenge that took him to the Serie A, though it is well known that he had become unhappy at Real, following Florentino Perez’s unwillingness to offer him a new deal during this past season.
