Former United striker shakes off abuse

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo has shrugged off the fact that some fans don’t like him, insisting that they’re just jealous of his talent and looks.

"I think that because I am rich, handsome and a great player people are envious of me," Ronaldo said.

"I don't have any other explanation.”

The former Manchester United striker has often been accused of being arrogant, and Ronaldo has done nothing to quash those opinions in pundits and fans alike.


Still, Ronaldo would certainly be welcomed back to United if he did decide to return, with the Portugal international not ruling out a move back to Old Trafford recently.

"I don't close the door, so maybe in the future I hope so, because I know the league, I know the players, I know the atmosphere,” Ronaldo said.

"Why not? I hope so one day, but you never know. The team that I like more in England is Manchester [United] but I cannot say that I am going to play there one day because I am very, very happy in Madrid.”
