Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, whose relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid was not always a pleasant one, has insisted that Los Blancos are bigger than the superstar following his recent move to Juventus.
Ronaldo became the Bianconeri's most expensive player in history recently when he put pen to paper on a deal with the Serie A giants after nine sensational years at Real.
Mourinho, who managed the forward in Spain between 2010 and 2013, believes that, although the Madrid giants might miss the 33-year-old, he is not bigger than the club.
"Everybody knows Ronaldo, everybody knows what he can do," he said, according to Calciomercato.
"Of course, everybody would miss a player like Cristiano, but, of course, Real Madrid is bigger than any player."
Ronaldo scored an incredible 450 goals in 438 matches during his time at Real, and also won two LaLiga titles and four UEFA Champions League trophies with the club.
