Sir Alex Ferguson
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has complimented Cristiano Ronaldo’s tireless efforts to become the greatest player in history even at the advanced age of 36. Sir Alex Ferguson recently recollected one training session in 2009 with the player where there was a heavy downpour of rain and he suggested to Cristiano Ronaldo that he should take a recess because the ground was soft and soaked.
He was surprised a few moments later when he saw the Portuguese striker training on the astroturf. He let him be because he knew that if he went down from his office and speak to Ronaldo, the then-23-year-old would not have listened to his suggestion to stop training. He was positive that Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude in training and on the pitch is what has brought him much success in his career. He said that if any player adopted that mentality, then they would not struggle surpassing Ronaldo’s quality.
It is believed that before the Aston Villa match, it was understood by the players that Bruno Fernandes would assume penalty duties and that Cristiano Ronaldo was never in the picture to step up and take any penalty. However, after the devastating last-gasp penalty miss, there will definitely be doubts whether Fernandes should be the ideal penalty taker especially now that Ronaldo is in the lot.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Fernandes and Ronaldo are very good spot-kick takers, and Fernandes' penalty miss has been over-exaggerated to be a continual mistake. He said that Fernandes’ miss was a genuine slip-up but he will not suspend the responsibility from him just because he missed one of the many penalties he has taken. He said that Ronaldo will take the spot-kick responsibilities only when Bruno Fernandes abdicates his position as the club’s penalty taker.
Dortmund CEO Watzke has urged Manchester United fans to be a little more patient with Jadon Sancho as he argued that the player has not fully adapted to the EPL. He said that Sancho was a phenomenal player who is a rare talent to come by. He added that once Sancho gets a full grip on the squad and the league, then Manchester United fans will see a whole new prolific side of the attacker.
