We dont want Ronaldo at Real Madrid: SneijderJuly 17th, 2008 - 1:33 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 17 (ANI): Real Madrid midfielder Wesley Sneijder has said that ace Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo is not wanted at the Spanish club because he is a mega-earning bottler.
Dutchman Sneijder said that Ronaldos massive wages would upset teammates and claimed that Ronaldo disappeared before big games for Manchester United.
Sneijder said: It would be bad for the dressing room as he would earn better wages than the rest of the squad. It would not matter to me but I know there are other players who would not like that. Maintaining the stability within the squad is important.
Sneijder thinks the Spanish champions have players as good as Ronaldo, The Sun reported.
To speak highly of him would be slightly disrespectful to the players that are here and have shown their class. There are already similar players to him here like Arjen Robben, Sneijder said.
I want Robinho to stay - he is almost the same as Ronaldo. People criticise him a bit and say Robinho does not play well in big games but I”ve seen Ronaldo disappear in some of Uniteds big games, he added.
Real Madrid is trying to bag Ronaldo from Old Trafford in a 70million pound deal and would pay him around 150,000 pound-a-week.
But Sneijder said that Real should save their cash. He said: This side doesnt need to make signings. (ANI)
