Diego Simeone on playing against Ronaldo: 'He is number one, extraordinary and always makes the difference'
- The manager is accustomed to losing to the ex-Real Madrid player.
- Simeone praised Cristiano's qualities ahead of Atletico Madrid's clash with Juventus.
- However, Diego doesn't think it's going to be his team against Ronaldo.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone expects another tough match against Juventus and his old adversary Cristiano Ronaldo in particular. Even though the ex-Madridista is now wearing the Old Lady colours, it's always pleasant to remember all those times when Cristiano destroyed Atletico during his Bernabeu years.
"He is a champion and we can't say anything. He is number one, extraordinary and always makes the difference. [However] I don't think that it's Ronaldo against Atletico, as we have come to play against Juve," said Simeone during the pre-Juventus presser on Monday.
