Team Spirit? Cristiano Ronaldo thinks his team would do better if everyone else was up to his level

Are you like Cristiano Ronaldo? Do you think your team would do better if everyone else was up to ‘your standard’? Do you have favourites in your team? It’s one thing thinking these thoughts in your head but when you voice it out it takes things to a whole new level within the team. 

Well I’m an avid football fan. Although Real Madrid can’t take the place of Arsenal in my world, I really do love Cristiano Ronaldo and his skills speak. However, I am also a firm believer of the fact that there is no ‘I’ in team. Yes I know it’s a management cliche but it’s reality.

Real Madrid lost yesterday to Atletico Madrid, a local rival and at the customary press conference, Cristiano Ronaldo was quoted as saying the following:

“If the whole team was in my level, we’d come first. ”

“I don’t want to disrespect anyone, but when the best players aren’t available it’s harder to win. I like to play with Karim, with Bale, with Marcelo”.

Ronaldo here made it so clear who he likes to work with and the fact (I mean, anyone who knows Ronaldo knows he’s extremely confident of his abilities) that he believes he’s the star in the team. How that affects the team spirit going forward is left to see. However, maybe some thoughts are better left in the head…
