Dani Ceballos has risked the wrath of Real Madrid fans by referring to Brazilian legend Ronaldo as “fat”.
In an interview discussing how the club are coping with the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo, midfielder Ceballos remarked that players have departed the Bernabeu before.
“Before great players have left Real Madrid like the fat Ronaldo, Kaka…” he told Radio Marca.
“Cristiano has left, he is no longer here, but the team is still working together.
“The team is above all. At the individual level, other stars are emerging like Karim, Marco and Gareth Bale.
“They are stepping up and throwing the team on their backs.
“Cristiano’s 40 goals are gone, but any of our forwards can do it.”
