Hello, I'm Gone

If I were forced to make a tourism ad for Denver — and I would definitely have to be forced — it would be: Denver. The weather’s fine. I also toyed with “Denver. It’s Nashville without music.” “Denver. It’s Milwaukee, with bad beer.” And “Denver. Hip compared to Dayton.” But I decided to accentuate the […]

Cristiano Ronaldo has come along way since arriving at Manchester United as a skinny teenager in 2003. The Premier League side paid Portuguese side Sporting £12m for him and eventually sold him to Real Madrid for £80m. Ronaldo won three Premier League titles with Man United as well as the Champions League Now he’s back at Old Trafford, this time with Juventus for their Champions League group game, so looks at what those who played with and coached him have previously said about his time at the club. [quote]Cristiano was like an ornament on top of a Christmas tree[/quote] Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United’s greatest ever manager During his time at the Old Trafford helm, Fergie claimed only four of his players were deserving of world class status – Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona. “If you read the papers or listen to the television commentators, we seem to be awash with ‘world-class’ footballers, he wrote in his book, Leading. “I don’t mean to demean or criticise any of the great or very good footballers who played for me during my 26-year career at United, but there were only four who were world class: Cantona, Giggs, Ronaldo and Scholes. “And of the four Cristiano was like an ornament on the top of a Christmas tree.” Former Man United captain, Roy Keane Writing in his autobiography, The Second Half, Keane said: “I liked the lad straightaway. He had a nice presence about him, and a good attitude.” “What impressed me most was that he’d been given the option of staying in Lisbon for another year, on loan, but he said no; he’d come over to Manchester straightaway. I thought it was a good, brave decision – because he was only seventeen. [quote]My reaction was: ‘This lad is going to be one of the world’s greatest players'[/quote] “After the first few days, watching him train, my reaction was, ‘This lad is going to be one of the world’s greatest players.’ I didn’t say it publicly, because I’d always be wary of building a player up too early – or knocking him down. “He looked like a player. You have to look the part, and he did. [Zinedine] Zidane looked like a player – and Ronaldo looked like a player. The shape, the body language – they were there. A bit of arrogance, too. But he’d a nice way about him; he was very likeable. We forget that he was very heavily criticised when he first came on the scene. He was going down too quickly when tackled, his final product wasn’t good enough. But – again – he was only seventeen, a kid. I was playing youth football for Rockmount, in Cork, at that age. “He was amazing. He was immediately one of the hardest working players at United. Most of the players I knew worked hard, but Ronaldo had the talent on top of the work rate. “He was good-looking and he knew it. He was vain in that sense – at the mirror. He was a big lad, a big unit. I’d think, ‘Good on yeh.’ Looking at some of the other lads in front of the mirror, I’d think, ‘Yeh fuckin’ nugget.’ But Ronaldo had an innocence to him, and a niceness. I don’t think he ever slackened off, or that he was ever more worried about the mirror than his game. I always felt that football was his love.” Keane and Ronaldo played together at Manchester United Former Man United defender, Gary Neville “He didn’t arrive at Manchester United as someone who was setting the tone for everybody else. It wasn’t a case of he came in and all of a sudden everyone else upped their game, that’s not how it was,” Neville once told talkSPORT. “He became that out of what was in that dressing room. Cristiano was butchered and battered for two or three years at Manchester United and he has said it made him a man. “He was setting the standards when he left, and he became someone who would come in and do half an hour before training and an hour after training, but there had been 20 players per season for 15 years doing that every day. Neville said Ronaldo’s incredible work ethic saw him become the world’s best player “The club, and Sir Alex [Ferguson], and the players all set the tone for each other. If you look at his performances in the first two or three years, his maturity, his decision making, his physicality, his petulance, they were all smoothed out over a period of three or four years at the club.” From those early days, Ronaldo grew into a player capable of winning games almost single-handedly. Neville added: “For two years, 2007-08 and 2008-09, I cannot believe Manchester United fans could ever have seen anything like that. He was just out of this world, like he was from another planet.” Rene Meulensteen, Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant during Ronaldo’s time at United “He was like Superman in footballer’s clothes. What struck me about him was his commitment. His application was second to none.” [article-rail-section title=”Most popular football news” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”recent” /]
