[/caption]When Cristiano Ronaldo was a Manchester United player, he was often tipped by the majority of football fans as the Red Devilsâ€™ number one player.
Ronaldo became Manchester Unitedâ€™s top scorer for three seasons on the trot until he left England. Now itâ€™s Wayne Rooney who deservedly carries this title.
Speaking to News of the World in an exclusive interview, Cristiano Ronaldo talked about his connection with Rooney and the rest of Manchester United players.
The current Real Madrid superstar affirmed:
â€œI still speak to Wayne. When I have the opportunity, I speak with himâ€¦ with Ferdinand, Vidic, Evraâ€¦â€
â€œWe talk about football and everything.â€
Singling out Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo commented on the English manâ€™s form:
â€œWayne has scored a lot of goals and he is the man at Manchester United at the moment.
â€œIâ€™m really, really happy for him because he has deserved it, because he has worked for it.â€
Some people suggest that Rooney is only starting to show up his influence since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
But CR9 has other views:
“He is a fantastic player, but it’s not because I left the club that he is doing well. He has always done well.”
