Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer move from Real Madrid to the Serie A club Juventus was criticised by footballing legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic last month, but the former Swedish international has now doubled down in scrutinizing the Portuguese.
When Ronaldo had just moved to Juventus, Zlatan had slammed the move saying, “Ronaldo talks about challenges but he decided to go to a club who have been winning the Serie A title with their eyes closed. Why did he not choose a club from a second division a few years ago? Try to become a champion with such a second-division [club] and lead them to the highest level.”
“Moving to Juventus is not a challenge at all.”
And now clarifying his statement, Ibrahimovic said, “I didn’t say his transfer wasn’t great. I said that it wasn’t a challenge to join Juventus.”
