“We must plan a plan B or a plan C for this season. The protocol works, but it must be respected. You can make it tougher, but if someone doesn’t respect it anyway … Ronaldo? Some champions think they are above all. He violated the protocol when he left Portugal. Such people would do better to send a message asking to respect the rules,” he said against the five-time Golden Ball winner, in remarks reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The polemic has not finished flowing in Italy, especially in the clan of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has already made it known that this whole story clearly annoyed the family of the Portuguese.
