France defender Raphael Varane says the situation around his club Manchester United and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo “affects” all of the players. United said they would consider a response after the full facts have been established.
Raphael Varane said:
“Obviously it affects us. We follow what is happening and what is being said. We try to calm the situation in our own way, we try not to get too involved in it. What is happening in the media in the big clubs is gaining momentum.”
“When it’s a star like Ronaldo, even more, so we try to take it with distance. That is to say that we do not try to change the situation alone. We are part of a collective.”
“What I want is the best for my team, so whatever the decision, as players, we’ll accept it and give the best of ourselves.” added Varane, who also played alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
