A close friend has come out to state the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus. According to Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Portuguese ace needed a better competition, therefore he had to move to England as he was becoming a little “bored in Italy”.
It was quite unbelievable yet true when the news of Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford was announced last week after 12 years. The player had left the club after winning his first Champions League and Ballon d’Or in 2009.
While in Turin the five-time Ballon d’Or winner had set many records and won trophies including the Scudettos and Capocannoniere. It was quite a big surprise to see the soccer superstar depart from Juventus.
He scored 101 goals in 134 appearances for the Turin club with 22 assists and won a total of 5 titles. It is quite a good record for the World’s Greatest Player of All-time.
Khabib has a personal relationship with Ronaldo, the former MMA artist in an interview with the Russian outlet RT Sport claimed that Ronaldo’s comeback to the Premier League is for him to continue playing at the top level in his professional career. He has proposed to still be in top form in the next 4 years.
When asked if he tried to persuade Ronaldo into rejoining Real Madrid, Khabib responded: “I don’t know, I wouldn’t like to reveal our private chat.
“Well, he told me that he was bored in Italy and that he would like to move to England.
“For real, when I watch Italian football, I’m not a big fan of it. English football, on the contrary, I would never switch it off. No matter which team is playing, it’s always a spectacle.”
