Cristiano Ronaldo responded to the latest rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid. With a brilliant outburst.

In a rant worthy of the greatests of the beautiful game, Ronaldo got from loving Manchester United to the importance of hard work. He was never so outspoken before!

‘I just don’t care what the whole world seems to want to say about me or speculate about my future,’ he said.

‘I’ve said it a thousand times and, by now, people should realise…I’m totally happy at United.

‘I’m in the form of my life and I’m having the season of my career so far so it makes me mad sometimes to read some of the things which are supposed to be related to my future.

‘I get angry but I’m trying to accept it’s a waste of energy to be furious because it is not worth it.’


He went on to add that in order to be successful, you need hard work and that’s why Manchester United is the perfect place to be. Here he has to work hard and he needs the kind of effort that is required from him at this club.

Then he declared that the flow of his goals are not down to chance: it is down to his own hard work and the fantastic effort of teammates.

I’d say he does indeed look tired of the constant speculation. Especially as Real twice conceded defeat in their attempts to sign him – and at the end of the day, sporting director Predrag Mijatovic did so for the third time.

‘Right now it is impossible to sign Cristiano Ronaldo,’ he admitted.

Enough said then.
