What did Rooney say about Ronaldo
Who doesn’t admire the five-time Ballon d’Or winner? Rooney’s response:
“I’m sure there isn’t a single footballer on the earth who isn’t envious of Cristiano,” Rooney added. “His six-pack, his body… his career, the trophies he’s won, the money he’s made…” I believe that every player, with the exception of Lionel Messi, is envious of Cristiano.”
When discussing Ronaldo’s return to United last summer on Sky Sports, Rooney was blunt, saying the club needed to focus on “younger, hungry guys” and that he just offers goals.
Despite the fact that Ronaldo is United’s top scorer this season, Rooney owns the record – and he has spoken out against claims that Ajax head coach Erik ten Haag is close to becoming the club’s new manager, saying he is the wrong man for the job.
