Allegri: 'Madrid will always be a competitive club, with or without Cristiano'
- Los Blancos are a great team even after losing their star
- Ronaldo and Messi are the best players in the world
Max Allegri said after the 1-3 defeat against the Whites in Washington: "Real Madrid is a great team. 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."
