‘I’ll miss him forever’ – Real Madrid’s president Florentino on Ronaldo

Florentino Perez has said he will miss Cristiano Ronaldo “forever” at Real Madrid following the Portuguese superstar’s first season at Juventus.

At a ceremony where Ronaldo was being honoured with the Marca Leyenda lifetime achievement award, Real president Perez said, per ESPN FC: “I’ll miss him forever. I’m a Cristiano fan. He’s the best and that’s it. How was I not going to come [here]?”

Ronaldo averaged 50 goals a season in all competitions during his time at Madrid.

There are few, if any, players in the world that Real could sign who could replace that level of goalscoring.
