Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has conceded that his team "miss" Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo joined Madrid from Manchester United in the summer of 2009, scoring a remarkable 450 goals in 438 appearances for the Spanish giants before moving to Juventus ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
While Juve are closing in on another Serie A title and are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Madrid are facing a trophiless campaign having been eliminated from the Copa del Rey and Champions League in recent weeks.
Since arriving in Turin, Ronaldo has added another 24 goals to his overall total and Casemiro, has admitted that Los Blancos miss "the best player in the world".
"Of course we miss him, any team in the world would miss Cristiano. He is the best player in the world. It was a pleasure playing alongside him, but situations change and he is no longer a Real Madrid player," Casemiro told reporters.
Madrid are currently third in La Liga, 12 points off division leaders Barcelona.
