He is Real Madrid’s all time top goal scorer but before he made his legendary impact at the Spanish giant he was a cult hero, can I say Manchester United’s legend?.
Cristiano Ronaldo was and still loved by the Old Trafford favourites, even Sir Alex Ferguson who was the Manchester based club’s manager for 26 years listed him as one of the best he managed at the club.
“I don’t mean to demean or criticise any of the great or very good footballers who played for me during my 26-year career at United, but there were only four who were world class: Cantona, Giggs, Ronaldo and Scholes.
‘And of the four Cristiano was like an ornament on the top of a Christmas tree.”
He scored a total of 118 for the club, watch “Ororo” (One of his many names in Nigeria) score his first ever goal for Manchester United.
