first_imgReal Madrid are wrong to have sold Cristiano Ronaldo in what will go down as a “historic error” on the club’s behalf, says former president Ramon CalderonThe Portuguese superstar had been linked with a shock departure from the Santiago Bernabeu after May’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool.While some still doubted whether a transfer would ever actually materialise, Ronaldo then completed a €112m move to Serie A champions Juventus last week and is expected to be officially presented later this evening.Following his arrival in 2009 from Manchester United, Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 appearances to become Real’s all-time top goalscorer and proved indispensable in their recent European domination.And Calderon, who brought Ronaldo to the Spanish capital in 2009, is far from impressed with the 33-year-old’s sale.“It’s very sad that they have sold a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s a real pity,” Calderon told Spanish news outlet AS, via The Express.“[Particularly] With what it cost me to sign him, the effort that we made to bring him to Madrid.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Manchester [United] did not want to sell him and it was very difficult.“And now they have sold him for €100million. There isn’t a player who scores 60 goals a year for you and is worth to you [only] €100m.“Selling Cristiano is not good news, either for €100m or a billion.“But it is true that we put a clause of a €1bn to discourage those interested in him in the future, but at the same time, to show that there was no other player like him.“It’s a historic error.”Ronaldo could return to haunt Real earlier than expected, should he be available for Juventus in their International Champions Cup clash with the La Liga giants on August 4.last_img
