LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has criticised Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to move from Real Madrid to Juventus and suggested that selecting a club that has won the last seven Scudettos hardly represents a challenge.
In declarations published in Voetbal Nieuws, the former Milan, Inter and Juve forward said:
“Cristiano talks about new challenges but then calls moving to a club where winning Serie A is normal a challenge. He should try to make a second division side champions and take them to the very top. Moving to Juventus is definitely not a challenge.”
Ronaldo moved to Juventus after nine seasons at Real Madrid where he won the Champions League four times and the Portuguese’s main goal at the Serie A club is to win the tournament again, something that has not occurred since 1995-96, when Juve beat Ajax on penalties to lift the trophy.
