Ronaldo issued a surprising statement after the match against Atletico Madrid. CR7 claimed Atletico Madrid lost and almost lost his chance to win the La Liga title this season because of the level of play is not a good teammate.
"If all players have a high level as I, Madrid will be at the top. Every year according to the media, I like rubbish, but numbers and statistics can not lie," said Ronaldo as reported by Football Espana.
Ronaldo was reluctant to reveal the name of his teammate who claims to not play well.
"I do not want to call anyone, my teammates, but when the game is best not appear, it is difficult to win," said Ronaldo.
However, in an interview with Marca, Ronaldo claimed the media misinterpreted his statement. 31-year-old attacker said he was speaking about his teammate stamina level, not the level of the game.
"When I say that, I talk about the level of stamina, not my level as a player. I am not better than my teammates," said Ronaldo.
