New Real Madrid Boss: How I Feel About Ronaldo Exit

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."

For now I don't want to either agree or disagree with Mourinho but come UCL we shall see if it was just hype that King Ronaldo knows how to lift the whole team up to greater heights. I'm not here to praise him but I want to remind people that "the bad that men do lives after them but the good is often interred with their bones" so be it with Ronaldo.

No player is bigger than any team but the void left by Ronaldo will be the biggest in Real's history

He is right no player is bigger than a team, but that doesn't mean players should be treated like s*** they're also humans and deserve to be treated such
