Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Manchester United – Rare Video
‘Cristiano Ronaldo was the most gifted player I’ve ever managed’ the tributary words are from none other than the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. The former Manchester United manager whose management era with the Old Trafford side is known as the ‘Golden era’ has been hailing the current Real Madrid striker whenever he got the chance. The former Manchester United boss has admitted time and again that Cristiano Ronaldo is unreplaceable.
“Cristiano was the most gifted player I managed,” Ferguson wrote in his autobiography. “He surpassed all the other great ones I coached at United – and I had many”.
“I don’t think there is a winger in this world that can do that and that’s the measure of the quality of the lad and his scoring ability.”
Well that was quite later in Ronnie’s career that people started getting him known for his landmark performances. The factor that urged Ferguson to enroll a young Cristiano Ronaldo into Manchester United camp was his performance against the manager’s team. Manchester United got Cristiano Ronaldo at a time when Barcelona, Inter Milan and Valencia all were eyeing for the Portuguese. Sir Alex Ferguson picked Cristiano Ronaldo after some Manchester United players hailed the young Sporting Lisbon striker’s display against their team. Alex Ferguson revealed that after a friendly with Sporting, United’s players “talked about him constantly, and on the plane back from the game they urged me to sign him” and that “he is one of the most exciting young players I’ve ever seen,” Cristiano Ronaldo was then purchased by Red devils as the new era in football history begun. United are reportedly willing to pay Ronaldo £250,000 a week to return to the club he first joined as a teenager in 2003. But that seems very much difficult at the moment as the striker is having a great scoring rate with Real Madrid.
