Statement of Mikel on Ronaldo

"I've never been a Ronaldo fan really. For me, when a player has so much ego, I don't really get it. He's never been one of my favourite players and that's why I always go for Messi really.
''It's just a horrible scenario, he's done so much for the club, and to see it end this way, it's just horrible. On his part really, I would say that interview shouldn't have been done.''
