Rumors about his desire to return to Real Madrid have been returning regularly for many months. This Tuesday, the Portuguese reacted in turn … after Carlo Ancelotti denies this possibility.
“Anyone who knows me knows how focused I am in my work. Few statements and much more action, this has been my line since the beginning of my career. However, in view of all that has been said and written recently, I owe it to myself to express my position.
More than the lack of respect for me as a man and as a player, the frivolous way my future is covered in the media is a lack of respect for all the clubs involved in these rumors, as well as their players and staff. techniques.
My history at Real Madrid is written. It is registered. By words and numbers, by trophies and titles, by records and headlines. It is inscribed in the Bernabéu stadium museum and is also on the minds of all the club’s fans. And beyond what I have achieved, I remember that during those nine years I have had a relationship of deep affection and respect with the merengue fans, affection and respect that I still retain today and that I will always treasure. I know that the Real Madrid fans will continue to have me in their hearts and I will have them in mine.
In addition to this recent episode in Spain, there have been frequent news and stories associating me with various clubs in many different leagues, with no one bothering to try to find out the truth.
I’m breaking my silence now to say that I can’t let people keep playing with my name. I stay focused on my career and work, committed, and ready for whatever challenge I face. All the rest? Everything else is just words.“
