Sergio Ramos says he doesn't agree with Cristiano Ronaldo's opinion that Real Madrid have gotten weaker compared to last season.
The Portuguese talisman thinks Los Blancos were harmed by their transfer window activity in the summer, and have failed to kick on from last season's incredible successes.
The Champions League and La Liga winners sold Pepe, Danilo, James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata and brought in Theo Hernandez, Dani Ceballos and Achraf Hakimi from RM Castilla, but club captain Ramos doesn't share Ronaldo's view that they aren't as strong.
He told Cadena SER, as quoted by MARCA: "[Ronaldo] did celebrate Isco's goals, everyone has a different opinion on that. I have known him for a long time and I know his ambition and how sour he can feel when he goes home.
"That may not be the best way to be, but he's allowed to be that way. I don't care who scores, even if Keylor Navas runs up the pitch and scores. But it is true that Cristiano has a different role and other objectives such as the Ballon d'Or, but he gives us a lot and we can't be disappointed.
"I don't agree with him that the squad is weaker, it seems to be an opportunistic opinion. Nobody thought that when we won the Super Cups.
"We aren't missing anyone, we have won everything with the players that are here now. The squad has changed, but some players contribute some things and others contribute other things."
Ronaldo is yet to hit the ground running on a personal note this season having scored just one goal in seven La Liga appearances, although he has fared a little better in the Champions League having hit four in three.
