Ronaldo says woes at Madrid are not money-related
MADRID (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo has again said that his unhappiness at Real Madrid is not money-related.
He wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that he is "not worried about contracts" and that "my attention is exclusively focused on winning all the games and trophies in play with the indispensable company of my teammates and all of Madrid's fans."
The Portugal forward's enigmatic comment two weeks ago that he was "feeling sad" at the Spanish club sparked rumors the 27-year-old star wanted a raise. He has previously denied it is about money, saying only the club knows what the problem is about.
Ronaldo, who cost Madrid a record 80 million pounds (then $131 million) in 2009, trained with the team on Wednesday after having been away with Portugal.
