Cristiano Ronaldo adores Ferguson “the Great”

The story of Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro is the tale of an ambitious boy achieving his dream of becoming the world’s best.

The former Sporting Lisbon starlet – now a Red Devil player – has developed into one of the biggest conqueror in world football.

The Portuguese has collected many of Manchester United Football Club honours including the Busby award. His skills and determination have helped him integrate in the Manchester United family and for that, Ronaldo pays tribute to none other but one of his ‘fathers’, Sir Alex Ferguson :

“The boss is always important for me, not just last season but every season,” Ronaldo stated.

“I am at this club because of him. He saw me in a few games before I played against Manchester United – people think I came here just because I played [well] against United but it’s not true.

“He has always helped me and I said to him, ‘I want to be part of this club with you. I want to win trophies with you.’ He’s very important in my career, Sir Alex Ferguson .”

In fact, the old Scot is the one who made Ronaldo stay at United in a heart-to-heart conversation that closed the transfer soap opera on this note: Ronaldo remains at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo ’s destiny surely wouldn’t have been the same if he had not sacrificed his life for football. As revealed by his beloved mother Dolores Aveiro , Ronaldo might have fallen into drugs and alcohol, which would have ruined his fate.

But the grown kid from Madeira is now on top of the world after a successful year; and perhaps he sees Ferguson like the person who opened the door to the new world of his dreams, the world of professional soccer where he is now a high profiled player and a reigning king.

      one of the strengths behind Ronaldo is his tightness with his family which gives him a safe zone outside of the crazy world of football.. giving him the right place to keep his feet planted on the ground – i think alot of his success has started getting to his head – but with fergie by his side, he’s got the right mentor to keep him on the right track. He’s been there since day one in Mannchester – along with Carlos Queiroz and he has in many ways looked out for him as a father – Ronaldo in Ferguson has not only a great and caring friend but someone he can call family.

      I have to say that Ronaldo has made the
      No.7 shirt a special one and his talent is always welcome. The brotherly linkup between him and Rooney is the best in any team it reminded me of York/Cole matchup which was good also for Manchester. I think he knows that the feat he achieved last season is quite extraordinary and it would be very hard to copy, much less with his early injury. But trust me with Sir Alex, I know that he will do the best for him and Manchester United. The Team he represent is the best in more ways than one as no other team can honestly say that they have been consistent for the past 25 years. I am a die hearted fan from Jamaica and I so proud to be a member of the great family i=of Manchester United.
