Milito: Hard to comment on Ronaldo

Former Barcelona defender Gabriel Milito has said it is 'difficult' to comment on the situation surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Real Madrid forward has recently stated he is unhappy at Santiago Bernabeu, but the ex-Argentina international believes that the Portuguese's dissatisfaction would never have come to light if the atmosphere within the squad was a happy one.

“To win things you need a good dressing room,” he told Europa Press. “A good dressing room that knows that no one is better or more important than the next person.

“Discussing what's going on with Cristiano is difficult because we are outside of that dressing room.”

The 31-year-old went on to discuss Lionel Messi, who he believes is deserving of the Balon d'Or this year.

“For me, the most decisive player in the world, the best player, remains Leo. He is a unique player – not just the best today, but possibly the best in history.

“I do not know what Leo thinks, but he has never done this [speak out of turn to the media] in his career. The key to Barcelona's success, as well as the philosophy, the great coach and the great players, is the union between such a large group of people – it is what has existed and continues to exist.”
