Jose Mourinho has refused to discuss Cristiano Ronaldo and the reasons behind his 'sadness' at Real Madrid, while Florentino Perez has insisted he does not want to leave the club.
The Portuguese coach was unhappy when pushed for a response about Ronaldo going public over his unhappiness at the Santiago Bernabeu.
After being asked about the issue in his position as coach and general manager, Mourinho stated that he was not keen to say anything about this, but a reported from AS asked again.
"Excuse me, but this interview is quite interesting," he stated when pushed with a second question about Ronaldo..
"I am here to talk about everything and I have responded with in-depth answers and with sincerity.
"But do not ask me about Cristiano. you should understand me. I ask that you do not insist on an answer."
Meanwhile, Perez has tried to play down the reports that Ronaldo wants to leave the reigning La Liga champions.
"If he wanted to leave he'd have said so when the transfer window was still open," president Perez told Marca.
"There are other reasons behind it."
