Diego Simeone: Ronaldo “always makes us suffer!”

As he prepares his side to take on Juventus on Tuesday, Diego Simeone says Atletico Madrid are playing well but knows they must be careful whenever they are facing Cristiano Ronaldo.

“We are on a good run of form, but we want to improve in front of goal,” the Coach said at his pre-match press conference. “We want to be more consistent, we must face every game at our best and try to win every match.

“Ronaldo is a champion, he always makes us suffer,” Simeone continued when asked about the Portuguese star who has 22 career goals against Atleti. “He is a champion, No 1, extraordinary. He has so many different ways to make the difference.”
