Football News

Manchester United supporters, hello and welcome.

It may just seem like any old Tuesday to you - and it is, in many respects - but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy working on ways to improve your experience here at GiveMeSport.

We’ve created a neat little round-up packed full of the latest information. You should find most of it, if not all of it, interesting. Let us know your thoughts in the box provided below.

Ronaldo backs United

Yes, he’s a Real Madrid superstar, and yes, he is likely to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu for the remainder of his career, but there’s no disputing the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has a soft spot for Manchester United - one that extends to the belief that they can win the Premier League this year.

Optimistic? Certainly. Does that seem to bother Ronaldo? Not at all.

The Portuguese star said the Red Devils are good this year and that he expected them to become champions of England.

"Manchester is good this year. They are better. They are at the top so it's good and it's a club I like, everyone knows that," said Ronaldo, as relayed by Sky Sports.

"What I expect is that Manchester can be champions in England. With Van Gaal, with all the players and staff, I wish them all the best."

That’s a tough ask, nonetheless.

Rooney's WWE action

Moving on, United fans were treated to a merging of football and the WWE last night, with Wayne Rooney slapping wrestler Wade Barrett during the organisation’s tour of the UK.

The United captain was taunted by Barrett, who said the only two people of championship material were in the ring.

Fortunately for Rooney, the encounter ended better than his one with Phil Bardsley (you can watch that below).

As expected, Twitter erupted after the incident:

Tevez reveals his favourites in Manchester

Bringing us to a close, Carlos Tevez has looked to cut any healthy ties that remained connecting himself to Old Trafford, by backing rivals Man City over the Red Devils.

The Argentine, who left the red half of Manchester for the blue in 2009, said when the two sides meet he supports City, adding that he was ‘a City fan’.
