Real Madrid boss Mourinho has handed a compliment to his “FRIEND” Sir Alex for developing former Manchester United Ace Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Chelsea boss shared a healthy rivalry with Sir Alex even before he came to premier league, but still considers his old rival a friend. He revealed the two spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo alot.
The Portuguese genious added
I currently have Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema for the striker position, while Cristiano Ronaldo could also play there. However, I prefer to give him a bit more freedom on the pitch. He’s too talented to have him up front all the time.”
Jose also shed some light on the logic behind the two attacking acquisitions that Real have made this summer.
“Pedro Leon and Angel Di Maria are the type of players we didn’t have yet in our squad,” said Mourinho.
“Madrid played very much through the centre of the pitch last season because of the absence of wingers. We now have two technically gifted wingers who can only get better over the coming years.
“They really add something to the team.”
