The former Liverpool midfielder has revealed that the duo doesn’t share anything apart from appreciation and professional respect.
While talking to ETB, Alonso revealed that Ronaldo is not a diva and their friendship does not extend off the pitch.
“Clearly not everyone in the locker room are friends of mine and outside there is almost no relationship between us. But inside the dressing room, we get along. Cristiano is no diva," Alonso said.
However, Alonso stressed the importance of the Portugal captain at Real Madrid and said that he had nothing but kind words for coach Jose Mourinho.
Alonso shared his respect for Jose Mourinho and stated that he’s always learning from one of the greatest football managers in the world.
