Vincent Aboubakar Reveals His Shocking Conversation with Cristiano Ronaldo
The captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Vincent Aboubakar has revealed the conversation he had with Cristiano Ronaldo before leaving Al-Nassr.
The forward player was speaking in an interview with Talents d’Afrique on Canal+. He said Ronaldo wanted him to remain at the club for the rest of his contract.
We talked a bit and his [Cristiano’s] opinion was that he wanted me to stay, I told him no, that I will leave for family reasons. He asked me where my family was, I told him they are in France and so I prefer to go to Turkey, it’s closer. And he told me ‘it’s better, if your family is really far away, it’s more complicated’. I was firm, I wanted to leave.
The 31-year-old signed a two-and-half-year-deal with Turkish side Besiktas despite interest from Manchester United.
