Here are 10 things we absolutely loved about Cristiano Ronaldo over the years.
- If it was not for Ronaldo, Sir Alex Ferguson would not have made this amazing remark in 2008 when rumors spread that Ronaldo was leaving Old Trafford for the Bernabeu: “Do you think I would get into a contract with that mob [Real Madrid]. Jesus Christ, no chance. I wouldn’t sell them a virus.”
- The ongoing battle will rage on between a Ronaldo and Messi fan,but whether you shout for Lionel Messi or Ronaldo, there’s one part of Ronaldo’s CV that Messi can’t match: Ronaldo shined in the Premier League, winning all there is to win while suffering far more physical abuse than either of them has to endure in La Liga.
