Shakhtar Donetsk coach Luis Castro has aimed a sly dig at Real Madrid management for selling Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of their Champions League clash at the Alfredo di Stefano on Wednesday.
Castro was asked about Real Madrid struggle for goals?
He said when we talk about Real Madrid, there’s [Karim] Benzema, [Luka] Modric, [Marco] Asensio, Vinicius, Ramos. It’s a great team, but they have not replaced Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals, he insisted.
Let’s see, we are talking about Cristiano. When you have Cristiano on your team you should never let him go. Never! We are talking about the best, the most effective footballer in the world, a machine, a machine of sacrifice.
Real Madrid will entertain Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday evening for their Champions League opener.
