His comments were blown out of proportion by the press and he never intended to disrespect Cristiano Ronaldo. Dani Alves is now playing for Juventus. Let’s see what the defender said about Ronaldo.
Dani Alves: All My Fights With Cristiano Were Because Of Press
“All my fights with Cristiano were because of the press. If people only knew how much I respect Cristiano Ronaldo. I will repeat it to make myself clear: I respect Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone tells me what a fantastic professional he is. As for CR7, it’s different, he was my rival and I had to compete with him.”
“When I said he always wanted the limelight, that when you win you are going to be the star but when you lose they will go for you, I said it in a very respectful way. And I think the same of [Lionel] Messi or Neymar. But my thoughts were not negative.”
“What happens is that the press sold them differently, saying that I had spoken ill of him. And Ronaldo believed it. That’s why he did not greet me at the Ballon d’Or gala in 2015. I do not need to talk about anyone to go out in the newspapers. I have no ego.”
Dani Alves is expected to play for Juventus against Porto in round of 16 game of Champions League. At the moment, Juventus are seven points clear of AS Roma in Serie A table with 21 wins.
