Cristiano Ronaldo does not want to face Manchester United in the Champions League. Chill out though: he’s not afraid of us. He’s still having feelings, you know.

‘I don’t want to play against Manchester. It will be a strange feeling if I play them.

‘Mr Ferguson helped me a lot in my career. I was there six years and he taught me many things. I keep the same relationship with him. He’s a good friend of mine. I still have the same friends.’


It’s actually kind of touching. Anyway, right now both teams top their respective groups so all they have to do is staying there – but with United facing a tricky trip to Wolfsburg and Real Madrid going to Marseille, the situation might change… although if both sides slip down to second then problem solved again, we can’t be drawn together.

So, thanks for the kind words Ron. We’re not exactly thrilled about the idea of drawing Real Madrid right in the next round, are we? Bordeaux or whoever goes through from Arsenal’s group would be nice.
