Ronaldo Praises Sir Alex Ferguson

Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid

Portuguese superstar forward, Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford for Old Madrid in an £80 million world-record deal in 2009 - but says he misses the physical element of the Premier League and refused to rule out a comeback to Manchester United. 

When asked about a potential return to England, he stated, ‘Maybe in the future I hope so, because I know the league, I know the players, I know the atmosphere. I have good memories from Manchester and when I watch sometimes the games I miss it a lot because it’s part of me I left in England. The most important reason why I moved is the challenge because I really like to put myself under pressure to see what I can do, but I really miss the Premier League – for me it is along with the Spanish league the best league in the world’. 

‘Just because I play in Madrid I’m not going to miss speaking with the old guys so, when I have the opportunity, I speak with Sir Alex Ferguson. It was important for me when I played there, when my life was there, so it is good to speak with him because I’ll never forget who really helped me’.
