Brazilian striker Ronaldo, whose
protracted transfer to Milan is nearing its conclusion, has slammed his
club Real Madrid, and in particular coach Fabio Capello.
The Italian dropped Ronaldo to the bench after taking charge at the
Bernabeu last summer, in favour of Ruud van Nistelrooy, and the striker
has revealed his dislike for his former manager.
“He was a devil, and Madrid was hell,” Ronaldo told Italian daily La
Stampa, after passing a medical with Milan.
“I am feeling good. I am extremely happy to return here, and I hope to
be a Milan player soon,” he added.
The 30-year-old is expected to officially be unveiled by the Rossoneri
on Monday, who will pay Real Madrid a transfer fee of 8 million euros.
Ronaldo has now returned to Madrid to begin the process of moving,
though is unlikely to bid farewell to his team-mates at Real Madrid, as
Capello has announced that the players will have a two-day break after
their trip to Villarreal on Saturday.
