Evra: Come home Ronaldo

Published 8 Comments

Patrice Evra has told Cristiano Ronaldo he needs to return "home" to Manchester United if his talent is ever to be fully appreciated.

Four seasons after Ronaldo left Old Trafford for Real Madrid in a world record £80million transfer, the 27-year-old is on his way back for the Champions League knockout stages. Yet by the time those fixtures are played, it is virtually certain Ronaldo will have once again missed out on the major individual prizes.

Even at Real, it seems Ronaldo does not feel his contribution has been recognised despite scoring an incredible 170 times in 169 appearances for the Spanish giants. It leads Evra to conclude his one-time team mate needs to rejoin United if his stellar talent is ever to receive true recognition. "I have been in touch with him many times," Evra told MUTV.
