Ex-Real Madrid president Calderon: I'm outraged Ronaldo was sold

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has again hit out at the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo left Madrid for Juventus over a year ago - and Calderon says the club is yet to recover.

He told AS: "He should never have left, it's amazing that he was let go.

"It's impossible to do without such a player. 60 goals per season ... no player can bring you such a guarantee. He is irreplaceable, just like (Lionel) Messi.

"I am outraged that this may have happened, while (president) Florentino (Perez) keeps saying that Cristiano's signature was the best of his mandate."
