Roma new manager, Jose Mourinho, jockingly said he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Italy, so he can have peace.
Mourinho was sacked at Tottenham Hotspur in April before he replace Paulo Fonseca at Roma and is likely to come up against his compatriot Ronaldo in Serie A.
Both men have worked together at Real Madrid and Mourinho is very aware of that Ronaldo is a threat.
“He should leave Italy now and leave me in peace!” Mourinho joked in an interview with talkSPORT.
“Everybody says, and I say the same, he is not 25 any more. He is 36 and he doesn’t score 50 goals, but how many did he score? The record is [still] incredible, the numbers speak by themselves.”
Ronaldo turns 37 next season and scored 29 times in Serie A last season.
