Ronaldo Return Not Likely

June 21, 2010 - South Africa - Football - Portugal v North Korea FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010 - Group G - Green Point Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa - 21/6/10..Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo in action.
Former Man United winger Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move back to Old Trafford, despite only leaving last summer.

Ronaldo has admitted that he does miss Manchester United but he is not likely to return. He’s bound to miss the club, he was there for six years but he’s now a Real Madrid player.

"Yes, of course I miss Manchester," he said in the Daily Mirror.
He was asked if there was a possibility of him returning, his reply was: "No, I don't think I'll be going back."

I never really expected him to return, by the time he leaves Real Madrid, he won’t be at his best. We’re talking years away, but will United really want a play who isn’t at the top of his game?

Ronaldo has also been quick to defend his former teammate Wayne Rooney. After England’s 0-0 draw against Algeria last Friday, Rooney has been blamed by many. Quite rightly Ronaldo has pointed out that it wasn’t only Rooney’s fault.

"Wayne Rooney tried very hard, he's always like that, but he didn't play alone. So it's difficult, when it's not coming, when you don't score a goal or play well, it is always the big players' fault."

"Wayne is a great player and will do a good job. He'll try very hard to do a good job. I saw England's games and I'm quite surprised they didn't win them."

Rooney wasn’t at his best, the whole team weren’t at their best but you can’t just blame one player. There was a lot wrong with England, over both games, from team selections to the wrong formation, to lay the blame at Rooney’s door is unfair. 

One Response so far.

    It's going to be a very very VERY long time until C.Ronaldo is available on a free transfer isn't it?
