Massimiliano Allegri: 'Real Madrid will be fine without Cristiano Ronaldo'

Allegri: 'Real will be fine without Ronaldo'

Massimiliano Allegri says that he expects Real Madrid to remain a force, even after losing star man Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in a £100m deal.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has tipped Real Madrid to compete for silverware this coming season, despite the loss of club-record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner swapped life in the Spanish capital for Turin last month in a £100m deal, leaving a huge void to be filled at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo was absent from the Juventus squad on Saturday evening as they slipped to a 3-1 friendly loss at the hands of former club Real in the United States, and Allegri is confident that the reigning European champions will remain a real force.

"Real Madrid is a great team," he said at his post-match press conference. "We're happy to have Cristiano, especially on the international stage and the experience that he brings to the club.

"However, Real Madrid will always be a competitive club, with or without Cristiano. It's going to be a pleasure to coach Cristiano Ronaldo, certainly he's one of the top players in the world next to Lionel Messi and I'm looking forward to the privilege of coaching such a fantastic player."

Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 appearances for Madrid, including 44 in 44 during his final season at the club.
