Barcelona defender Dani Alves has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo “is too much” after reflecting on Saturday’s Clasico demolition of Real Madrid.
The right-back seemingly attended a Press conference to discuss Tuesday’s match against Roma in the Champions League but he spent most of it taunting the capital giants in wake of La Blaugrana’s 4-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I felt [Saturday’s] Clasico was the one I felt [Madrid] were most inferior in,” he said at a Press conference.
“We read everything [they did] perfectly and played better than we did in the 6-2 [in 2009], when it was very much end-to-end.
“Saturday was not so much. We dominated and didn’t let our opponents create many chances.
“We always intend to respect the opposing team. When you score the fourth goal, you must go for the fifth.
“That’s the greatest respect you can have for [the opposing team]. That’s what Pep [Guardiola] taught us.
“If we can win 100-0 then that’s much better than winning 4-0.
“[On his Marca and AS blackout], I don’t speak of Marca or AS. I’m like [Jose] Mourinho in that I only speak to the biggest outlets.
“People, when competing with me, usually lose. Their campaigns [to bring me down] are meaningless.
“If someone wants to put my name into Google then that’s being smarter than most of the sheep [who dislike me].
“Ronaldo’s character is too much. He wants to be the main man too much.
“That means when his team win, he must always be at the forefront, and if not, he must take the brunt of the blame, but I don’t care what he does.”
