Atletico Madrid fans has made their feelings clear during a pre-season friendly about the former Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo who’s in search of a new club.
The Spanish capital side are rumoured to want to bring the five times Ballon d’Or winner, to the Wanda Metropolitano.
Dozens of fans were seen holding a banner with an inscription saying “CR7 NOT WELCOME.”
The ‘Union Internacional de Penas del Atletico de Madrid’, a fan group of Atletico, said Ronaldo did not align with their values.
The statement reads :
Given the possibility that the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo is more than just a rumour we express our absolute rejection of any hypothetical incorporation into our club.
“The aforementioned player represents the antithesis of the values that are the hallmarks of our Atleti, such as effort, generosity, simplicity and humility.
“Even in the unlikely event that a player in decline such as Cristiano Ronaldo could secure a title; we would not accept his signing.
“The sense of belonging to our Atletico is not something that is within his reach, to his misfortune, so he could never achieve our affection or recognition.
“Therefore, we ask the club to reject his possible signing, if he has ever been considered.”
Ronaldo is currently in Manchester to discuss his future at the club with newly appointed manager, Erik ten Hag.
