Cristiano: “Mourinho not worth it”

Cristiano Ronaldo was at pains to avoid questions regarding Jose Mourinho after Portugal’s midweek friendly with Holland.

The former Real Madrid boss’s recent declaration that he coached the ‘real’ Ronaldo earlier in his career, referring to the former Brazil striker, had journalists questioning the Portuguese star on the matter following the 1-1 draw, in which he salvaged a late equaliser.

“I don’t want to say anything about that person. It’s not worth it. I’m sorry but I’m not going to talk about that person,” said Ronaldo in comments published by O Jogo.

Furthermore, the Madrid striker insists he is only thinking about the Carlo Ancelotti era at the club.

“I like the way Ancelotti works. He’s a great man and a great Coach,” he insisted, before being asked whether scoring against Chelsea in pre-season had given him great joy.

“It gives me great joy to score against every team,” replied Ronaldo.
