Paratici: 'Only madman doubts CR7'
Juventus director Fabio Paratici said “only a madman” would doubt Cristiano Ronaldo, despite missing out on the Ballon d’Or.
It is widely reported the Portugal international won’t even be in the top three for the trophy this year, despite taking Real Madrid to their third consecutive Champions League title.
“Only a madman would say Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t a great player, one of the most important in the history of football,” Paratici told Sky Sport Italia just 24 hours after he was formally appointed new director general.
“It seems strange that he won’t win the Ballon d’Or after 15 decisive goals last season, and unfortunately we know about that, as some of them were against us.”
Paratici replaces Beppe Marotta, who is now on the verge of taking on a new job with Inter.
“I am very fond of Marotta personally, he is a great director and I am sure he’ll prove that at Inter too.”
