"I still haven't spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo. I found out about all this from a newspaper," Perez said. "He will tell us what has happened.(.) The only thing I know is that he feels mistreated by the media."
"I think the project is well laid out," Madrid president Florentino Perez said. "We have the world's best players and plenty of youth. This year has been a result of this policy. When the stars didn't play, the youngsters did and they did well. We have to give credit to Zidane, he helped us in 2001 by bringing in his talent and changing the course of history, and now as a coach he is doing a tremendous job and we have to thank him."
