Former Liverpool and Real Madrid star, Jerzy Dudek, has hit out at Cristiano Ronaldo, saying that the Manchester United forward is “self-centered” in nature.
Dudek said this while comparing Ronaldo to Raúl González, a former Real Madrid striker.
The trio played together during their time together at Real Madrid.
The former goalkeeper said he and his fellow Real Madrid teammate, Raul, would rather win 1-0 with Ronaldo scoring a goal than win 5-0 without him on the scoresheet.
“Raul was a really arrogant character, but all in all, he was a normal guy. Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, is very self-centered but has a great desire to win,” Dudek was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.
“I am sure he would prefer a 1-0 with his own goal to a 5-0 without finding the way of the goal.
“Behind the scenes, however, he is an absolutely normal guy, but I understand that he can be perceived differently from the outside.”
Dudek spent four seasons at Real Madrid following his successful spell at Liverpool.
