Real Madrid great Ronaldo defends AC Milan move: Inter Milan ignored me

Real Madrid great Ronaldo has defended his move to AC Milan.

Ronaldo had made his name with Inter Milan in Italy, but joined their city rivals when leaving Real.

He recalled, "It didn't go well, but Silvio Berlusconi and above all Adriano Galliani cared for me so much. The rapport with them is a memory that still makes me smile to this day. The respect remains.

“It might seem easy to say that now, but it's the truth: at that time, I really wanted to come back to Inter. I did everything to come back to Inter. I waited as long as it was possible, but when Inter didn't give me a yes or no answer, it meant no.

“I didn't feel that I was a traitor in joining Milan, but rather that I had been betrayed by Inter. It wasn't a popular choice, but I've never been afraid of those."
