Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, speaking with Spanish radio on Monday about the past year admitted that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player he ever signed for Real Madrid.
The Portuguese star joined Los Blancos from Manchester United in the then world record fee of about €94 million in the summer of 2009.
“He never created any problems during the nine years at Real Madrid, never once arriving late or anything. He told Spanish radio.
“I think he’s the best player I signed for Real Madrid.
“I always had a great relationship with him.
“We never had any problems, not even over money.
“We never talked about his [tax] debt.”
