Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo angry with Perez over 'backhanded' compliments

Real Madrid Club World Cup

Real Madrid have won the FIFA Club World Cup title for the second straight year, after defeating Gremio 1-0 thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's superb free-kick.

Ronaldo, though, confirmed he will be fit for next weekend's Clasico against Barcelona.

Real Madrid's form in the league had been pretty poor at the beginning of the season but the Madrid team are clawing their way back to form and with the impending El Clasico fixture looming in the horizon, Cristiano made a unusual claim that Barca players should give his team a guard of honour for becoming world champions. I'm not in charge of the club, it is the people at the top who are.

"Neymar being in Madrid would have more facilities to win it (the Champions League), Madrid is a club that gives what it needs to a great player", said Perez.

"We have to enjoy today, the balance is good and we must continue in this manner".




Asked about Ronaldo's future, Zidane added: "For us, it is fundamental that Cristiano stays all his life".

"We are gaining confidence and we are going to improve and finish very well". Another big moment in Ronaldo's career, delivering again on a massive stage.

≈ Former Brazil, AC Milan and Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has retired from football. "It's what I like the most", Ronaldo added.

The player, himself, tellingly said last night when asked if he'd like to retire with Real: "If possible, yes".
