Diego Simeone gave an interview to Tigo Sports in which Martin Liberman, a journalist in Argentina, brought up one of the hottest topics from the summer – Atletico Madrid‘s links to Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Simeone was very clear about what happened.

“A little bird told me that you were tempted to get Cristiano Ronaldo and another told me that you even talked. Would you have liked to have him?”, Liberman probed.

However, the coach could not have clarified the matter any further, completely distancing himself from any attempts to sign the forward.

“First of all, the two little birds told you something far from what happened. People sometimes talk to say what they want to say, not what actually happens.

Ronaldo is an absolute legend for Real Madrid and I wouldn’t see [Martin] Palermo playing for River Plate just as I wouldn’t see [Juan Roman] Riquelme or Ortega playing for Boca. There are certain situations that are very clear.”

The fans’ voice

“I remember in pre-season a fan behind me shouted, without knowing anything about what was happening but knowing about the rumors that were going around, ‘Cholo, be careful, the Champions League is not at all costs’.

“I liked that because it is a very healthy reflection.”

However, Simeone had no problem in recognizing Cristiano‘s trajectory despite the fact that he is not going through a good period right now.

“I have no doubt that Ronaldo will score goals again, not the beastly number of goals he has scored all his life, but it is impossible for him to disappear,” Simeone said.
