Ronaldo lauds Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of Manchester United return

    Juventus star man Cristiano Ronaldo paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson as he prepares to make an emotional return to Old Trafford with Juventus, insisting he will never forget the help and guidance of Ferguson and also confirm he will not celebrate if he scores.

    Manchester United face Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday night, where they will go up against club icon Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar signed for the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon back in the summer of 2003, having destroyed their defence in a pre-season friendly mere days earlier.

    He spent six years at Old Trafford, scoring 118 goals in 292 games for the club, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League and the Ballon d’Or before moving to Real Madrid in 2009.

    The 33-year-old who reached successive European Cup finals with United, has spoken previously on the impact Ferguson had on his career and elected to once more pay tribute on Monday night.

    After his arrival at the Old Trafford as Beckham's replacement, he was all about tricks, flicks and showboating. Beckham comparisons, during his early days at least, were few and far between, but then he developed into the goal-getter he is today.

    Ronaldo is grateful to Sir Alex for the impact he had on his career.
    ‘I won lots of trophies here, cups, league, Champions League. I remember the support as well. The support is fantastic,’ Ronaldo told reporters at a press conference at Old Trafford.

    ‘Sir Alex Ferguson is someone I will never ever forget and I would like to express my best possible wishes to him.’

    On his last visit to Old Trafford as a Real player, Ronaldo refused to celebrate, and he was asked what he would do tomorrow night, replying: ‘My reaction will be the same.’

    Ronaldo was speaking to the media for the first time since allegations were made that he raped a model in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, and he once again denied the allegations having previously insisted his ‘conscience was clear’.

    When asked about the controversy, he said: ‘I know I am an example, 100%. On the pitch and off the pitch. I’m a happy man. We did the statement two weeks ago.

    ‘Of course I’m not going to lie on this situation. My lawyers are confident and of course I am too. The most important thing is that I enjoy football and enjoy life. I have people who take care of my life. The true always come in the first position.’

    It's the fans I think. The fans at Madrid have high demand and lots of inordinate affections. They were very cool with Ronaldo who thinks they don't show him enough support support.

    Ronaldo should ask Owen what the fans did to him.
    I also believe Madrid's image and market is what caused the rift between Ronaldo and the club.
