In The Sun newspaper today, they quote a source close to Ronaldo as saying:
“Cristiano has always been close to Alex Ferguson and even now they still talk. Cristiano simply would not risk hurting him by joining Ferguson’s immediate rivals.”
Cristiano Ronaldo recently said that Sir Alex Ferguson was “like a father to him” and rates him alongside current boss Jose Mourinho as the best in the business.
“When I arrived at United I was 18 and Sir Alex was like a father to me. He taught me many things.”
“I worked with him for six years and he is a great human, a great coach. Sir Alex and Jose Mourinho are the two best coaches in the world.”
