‘Madrid the best place for Ronaldo’

Sergio Ramos has warned Cristiano Ronaldo that ‘he couldn’t go anywhere better or find a better place’ than Real Madrid.

Ronaldo surprisingly claimed he could leave Madrid in the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s Champions League Final against Liverpool, which Los Blancos won 3-1, and Ramos urged the No 7 to reconsider his stance.

“Cris is a key piece in this squad. He couldn’t go anywhere better,” the defender said after the game.

“Cris likes to be loved and we’d be delighted if he stayed. He wouldn’t find a better place, he’s our ‘crack’.

“After that, anyone is free to make their own decisions. I hope he stays for many more years.

“I don’t think anyone would want to move elsewhere after touching the sky. Now comes the World Cup and a Champions League to enjoy.

“Winning the CL again? It’s a dream come true, crazy, I now have the same number of Leagues as Champions Leagues.

“We knew it was going to be a complicated game against a great team. They gave everything and have a Coach who instilled the ethos of hard work in them.

“Bale? He affirmed himself as a ‘crack’. It’s his prize for a few years’ work. He’s implanted in the Blancos’ dynasty. This is a legendary team.

“Carvajal’s injury? That was the negative point, I hope it’s as minor as possible and that he can play at the World Cup.”
