Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus star analysed as Jose Mourinho reveals his true opinion | Football | Sport

Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo had a bitter falling out during their time at Real Madrid together.

The duo helped Los Blancos win the La Liga title back in 2012 but, the following year, relations soured.

But, despite that, Ronaldo has been praised by Mourinho who believes the Juventus star is a ‘phenomenon’ and that his attitude should be commended.

“What Cristiano does does not surprise me,” Mourinho told Portuguese TV channel 11.

“At 34, he is a top player, who plays in a top team and has top ambitions.

“It does not surprise me because he is a case study in genetic terms, and mentality as well.

“He is a phenomenon, someone who only thinks about winning and doing it more and more and better. That is why I am not surprised at all what he does.

“When he is 50 years old he will be at home and FIFA will invite him to a game of legends. He will play the game and score a goal. I am sure it will be like that.”

Mourinho was previously tipped to reunite with Ronaldo at Juventus following Massimiliano Allegri’s departure.

But the Old Lady chose to appoint Maurizio Sarri as the Italian’s successor instead.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo recently invited Barcelona forward Lionel Messi to dinner.

The duo’s rivalry has enchanted the footballing community for over a decade – yet they’ve rarely been seen together.

Yet Messi has now revealed he is willing to sit down for dinner with the Portugal international.

“Yes, I don’t have any problem with that,” he said.

“I’ve always said that I don’t have any issue with him.

“We might not be friends because we’ve never shared a dressing room together but I always see him at award shows and there’s no problem.

“We actually spoke with each other for quite a long time at the most recent show.

“I don’t know if there will be a dinner because I don’t know if our paths will cross for obvious reasons, each one of us has our own life and our own commitments. But obviously I would accept the invitation.”
