Chants of Ronaldo Ronaldo filled the air at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium when Real Madrid played against Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
The game which ended goalless saw fans chanting his name to express how they feel the team lacks a goal threat since the Portuguese’ exit to Juventus. Real Madrid have scored just one goal in their last three games.
Just few hours before the game, Ronaldo proved to be the star he is as he played a huge part in Juventus’ 3-1 victory over Napoli.
Since joining Juventus after a £99 million was paid in July, the 33-year-old has scored three goals and set up four. He’s earning five man of the match awards in the seven games he’s played for his new club.
One can almost think Real president Florentino Perez was anticipating such a reaction from the Bernabeu when he gave an interview in which he assured supporters that the days of Ronaldo would one day return to Los Blancos .
Discussing Ronaldo earlier this week, Perez said: “He is the worthy successor of Alfredo Di Stefano, he is the player who has scored more goals in the history of Madrid, and I think that he is one of those players who will be in the hearts of the Real Madrid fans and will [be remembered] from generation to generation. He is one of those that one day will come back.”
