Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has slammed Jose Mourinho following the Chelsea boss' recent comment that they do not get along anymore.
The Portugual international has been strongly linked with a return to the Premier League of late, with former side Manchester United rumoured to be leading the race. There were also speculations linking the 2013 Ballon d'Or winner's with a move to either Manchester City or Chelsea.
However, when Mourinho, who has worked with Ronaldo when he was the manager of Real from 2010 to 2013, was asked whether he is interested in signing Ronaldo for Chelsea, The Special One said: "You would not find us hanging around together. The relationship does not exist, but the remembrance of his impact."
And the Real forward, who seems to have been angered by Mourinho's comments, chose to respond to the Chelsea boss' jibe, saying his opinion does not matter.
"Mourinho? What he says is not important. I only think about Real Madrid. I want to help them, the other things I do not care about," Ronaldo told the Express.
This is not the first time that Mourinho and Ronaldo have been involved in a squabble as the Chelsea manager had criticised the player earlier as well, saying the 29-year-old feels he "knows everything and the coach cannot help him to develop more".
However, Ronaldo, at that time, had opted to remain silent, insisting that Mourinho was "not worth talking about".
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old dismissed speculations about him returning to his former club United, saying that he is full focused on his task at Real.
The Portuguese, who had earlier hinted at returning to Old Trafford in the near future, has been strongly linked with a move to the Red Devils next summer.
United fans have gone as far as to book a plane for £3,000 to display the message "Come home Ronaldo" over the Estadio El Madrigal during Real's La Liga clash against Villarreal on Saturday.
However, Ronaldo, who has netted 264 goals in 254 appearances for the Spanish giants in all competitions, insists that he is happy at Real and has no plans of leaving the Bernabeu in the near future.
"They are all speculations about my future," Ronaldo told Sky News. "My future is Madrid. I'm happy this season is going well and my future, I will not speak about, it does not make sense."
