Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed claims that Cristiano Ronaldo is unhappy at the club and that they would not even think about selling their star man.
Ronaldo claimed he was unhappy in the Spanish capital last week after sparking a debate as to why he refused to celebrate a goal, but Madrid boss Mourinho has laughed off any suggestions of the Portuguese forward leaving, with reports linking him him with a move to both Manchester clubs.
“I would say to every club to forget Cristiano.
“Don’t waste your time… Cristiano and Real Madrid are perfect for each other.”
Ronaldo scored twice but did not celebrate for Madrid before the international break and afterwards explained: “I’m sad. When I don’t celebrate a goal it is because I’m not happy.
“It’s a professional thing. Real Madrid know why I’m not happy.”
But Mourinho has laughed off his comments saying: “If Cristiano’s sad but plays the same — that’s perfect for me.”
“Finally after 15 days of talking about Ronaldo it is time to see if he plays well or not. Ronaldo now needs peace, quiet and to play football which is what he does the best and likes the best.”
