Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo evaded questions regarding Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's latest comments about him following Portugal's friendly draw with Holland Wednesday night.
The Portuguese coach, who left Madrid this summer to return for a second stint at Chelsea , was reported as saying that he trained the "first Ronaldo" referring to the 36-year-old former Brazil and Real striker.
Mourinho claimed towards the end of his turbulent reign as Madrid boss earlier this summer that his compatriot "maybe thinks that he knows everything and that the coach cannot improve him any more", that was before Ronaldo scored twice as Real defeated Chelsea 3-1 in the International Champions Cup final in Miami a week ago
But the Portugal international, who struck a second-half equalizer to earn a 1-1 draw for his country last night, said of the Chelsea manager when asked by reporters: "I will not talk anything about that person, not worth it. Sorry, but I will not talk about that person."
The Blues boss, who last year claimed that his compatriot "maybe thinks that he knows everything and that the coach cannot improve him any more", was quick to defuse the war of words.
"You know the declarations against Cristiano is your movie not my movie," he said. "It's not my movie. I just tried to identify the person, I just told the true Ronaldo in relation to the Brazilian one.
"If someone told me Thomas Muller and Gerd Muller, for me, the real man is Gerd Muller because he is the first one. And I'm not saying anything against the new kid in Bayern. So that's your movie and Real Madrid was last weekend in the movie city but it's not my problem."
