Ronaldo Unhappy With Di Maria & Alonso Departure

Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has expressed his Disappointment with the departure of Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso.

However, the Portuguese also insisted it is not his aim to criticize the club and that he respects the Los Blancos’ transfer activities.

“I have a very definite opinion, but I am not always allowed to say what I think. Otherwise, tomorrow I'd be on the front pages of all the papers and I don't want that", he said as quoted by Marca.

"If I were in charge, perhaps I wouldn't have done it like this. But if the President thinks that the best thing for the team is to sign the players he signed, and let others leave, then his decisions must be respected and supported.”

Ronaldo admitted that with Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez, Real Madrid's style of play will change, but reinsisted that Di Maria and Alonso were important figures for the club’s success last season.

"With the new players, our style is going to change, but it might change for the better or for the worse. Let's hope it will be for the better because they are top quality players,” he added.

“What usually happens is that they adapt well. Di María and Xabi Alonso were very important to us, but they aren't here anymore and we have to be happy with the newcomers. I'm sure that things will go well for us.

When asked about his new injury problems, he said that he expects to recover completely during the international break.

"I am doing very specific exercises. Yesterday I started running again. I'm sure that in a week I'll be back to one hundred per cent,” he concluded.
