Ronaldo on Mourinho: “I don’t care about him. I only care about Real Madrid”
- April 30, 2013
It looks like Cristiano Ronaldo’s mixed zone interview with the Spanish press may have been just as explosive as Jose Mourinho’s pronouncements after the game.
Ronaldo’s money quote was: “Mourinho? I don’t care about him. I only care about Real Madrid and me.”
Linked with a return to Manchester United and moneybags PSG, Ronaldo looks to have securely tied his future to Real Madrid for the time being, separating himself from fellow Portuguese Mourinho.
In addition, Ronaldo lamented Real Madrid’s elimination: “We were able to score the three goals that would have changed the game. But did not. We knew that if we scored soon it would change because Dortmund had no initiative.”
On the 4-1 defeat in Germany, Ronaldo added: “We should not lose by that result. But we leave with our heads high and thank the fans.”
And on his fitness: “I felt good. Whenever I am in the team I give my best.”
Finally, Ronaldo spoke of his future saying: “I have two years left on my contract and I am not worried about my renewal. I just want to continue winning.”
UPDATE: The translation above has been questioned in the comments below – a more accurate translation is: “I’m not bothered/I don’t mind if Mourinho stays or not/stays or goes, I care about Real Madrid, and me.”
