Ibrahimovic stands by declaring Ronaldo Juventus move 'bull****'

Former Juventus striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic stands by his criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo's move to his old club.

When Ronaldo chose to swap Real Madrid for Juve, Ibrahimovic scoffed at his decision branding it "bull****".

And the LA Galaxy veteran now tells DAZN: "I never said it was not a great transfer, but I said it was no challenge to choose Juventus.

"It's not a challenge, if you join one of the best teams in the world, or you have a particular definition of 'challenge'. For me, a challenge is to join a team and take it as high as possible. Anyway it's a great thing for Italian football, because thanks to Cristiano RonaldoSerie A is growing and it makes me happy because Serie A is my second home."
