The departure of Alonso to Bayern Munich, in particular, has raised questions about whether the Madrid club will have enough quality and experience in midfield without him. Alarm bells rang when they let slip a two-goal lead to crash to a 4-2 defeat at Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday, with Ronaldo sidelined by injury.
I have a very clear opinion but I cannot always say what I think, the Portugal forward told reporters at a promotional event in Jerez when asked about his club's recent transfer dealings.
If not I would be on the front page of the newspaper and I don't want that. But, if I was in charge, maybe I would not have done it like that. But if the president thinks that the best thing for the team is to buy the players he bought and let others leave we have to respect and support his decisions.
Ronaldo's comments will make uncomfortable reading for construction magnate Perez who has spent hundreds of millions of euros on top players and turned Real into the world's richest club by income. With the new players the style will change but it could change for the better or for the worse, added the World Footballer of the Year.
