Cristiano Ronaldo has made it known that he misses his former club, Real Madrid and “hopes to return to Madrid soon.”
Ronaldo made this known while receiving the Marca Leyenda award.
The Portuguese superstar was with Real Madrid for a decade and won four of his five Ballons d’Or there.
Ronaldo joined Juventus last summer but has now admitted that he misses the Spanish capital.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Ronaldo said;
“I felt sorry when I left Real Madrid. I miss both [Manchester and Madrid] but because of life’s circumstances I have lived more years in Madrid, my children and my girl were born here, so I miss Madrid more.
“This trophy will be in a very nice place in my museum. Madrid is special, I travel a lot but there are few cities like Madrid. Much of this award is derived from what I did in Madrid. It is a Spanish trophy and leaves me very honoured. Thanks to all those who have helped me to achieve it. It is a pride for me. And I hope to return to Madrid soon”.
On his ambitions as a child;
“I never thought about [reaching this level]. My dream was always [just] to be a professional player.
“All titles are important but possibly [the 2016 European Championship] because it is special. It is not the same, when you win something for your country and you know that it is more difficult, it is the most important thing in my career. I don’t know [if I will win the Champions League this year with Juventus]. We will try, as always. Hopefully Juventus wins.”
