Barcelona and their players are the envy of many coaches around the world. They are currently the most dangerous team on the planet and they pose a big challenge to Real Madrid’s dreams.
But Cristiano Ronaldo insists that he has no hatred against the Catalans.
The Portuguese winger is focus on this weekend’s titanic encounter and he knows how important it might be to defeat Barcelona.
Speaking ahead of El Clasico, CR9 said:
“It is a great match, a very special one.
“But it won’t be the first nor the last that we will play. I want to win so that we stay ahead of them [Barcelona] in the table.”
Real Madrid are yet to show the kind of football that will frighten any opposition but Ronaldo avowed that he wasn’t jealous of Lionel Messi’s Blaugrana.
“I don’t have anything against Barcelona and we [Real Madrid and Barca] are the best teams in La Liga.”
Much gambling is being made ahead of Saturday’s El Clasico. Without making any score line predictions like Sergio Ramos unfamously did against Lyon, Cristiano Ronaldo concluded:
“May the best team win and may that team be Real Madrid.”
