Ronaldo: United is not BIG enough for me.
Speaking with Rio Ferdinand during his new boots launch, Ronaldo was questioned on his career.
Why did he leave you asked?
Apparently, United is not the biggest club for him.
Great argument though if you compare Barcelona and Real with other top Premier League clubs.
The likes of Suarez, Neymar, Ronaldinho, Luiz Ronaldo and more great players prefered the Spanish giants as their destination in their career.
He have to step up to the plate after Ferguson saw a great potential in the then very young Cristiano Ronaldo during a friendly between United and Sporting Lisbon.
The star player wore the no.7 replacing David Beckham. That is a lot of shoes to fill in.
At the end of his United career, the king of no.7 in Old Trafford is rightfully belongs to Ronaldo rather than Beckham.
He won 3 Premier League titles with the Red Devils and one Balon D’or.
“After winning trophies after trophies, my dreams are getting bigger. Isn’t that how dreams work?” he said.
Boy did he made the right choice. His presentation to the Real Madrid fans was crazy.
Stadium were full as if there was a match. Huge reception.
He then go on to win 3 more Balon D’or with Real Madrid and is favourite to win his 5th after winning the league and Champions League double last season.
This will make him equaling the record of Lionel Messi for most Balon D’or wins.
The 2017/18 season has just started and although Ronaldo still cuts an frustrating figure in the pitch after not scoring in La Liga yet, we all know to never write him off.
