New Real Madrid Boss: How I Feel About Ronaldo Exit

Real Madrid's new manager did not have the chance to work with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus earlier in this transfer window, and he has now revealed how he feels about the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's exit from the club.

Real Star: What Makes Messi So Different From Ronaldo

Ronaldo was sold to the Bianconeri after nine years at Los Blancos last month, citing a new challenge as the reason for his exit, although it has been widely claimed that the 33-year-old was unhappy in Spain.

Julen Lopetegui, who was named manager of Real in June, has stated that he is thrilled he has the opportunity to regenerate the squad without the Portuguese forward.

"When I signed, he still belonged to the club, but soon after he expressed his intention to go," he said, according to AS.

"It's an exciting challenge reinventing the team without Ronaldo, making it competitive and capable of winning titles.

"I have no doubt that it will happen with these players that we have."

'Ronaldo Is Not Real's Best Ever Player!’

Ronaldo is Real's record goalscorer with 450 goals in 438 matches, and was on target 44 times in as many games in the 2017/18 campaign.
