Ferguson finally opens up on how he blocked Ronaldo’s move to Man City
Sir Alex Ferguson, the Legendary Manchester United manager, has confirmed he blocked Cristiano Ronaldo from making a possible switch to Manchester City.
Ferguson made it clear that he could not imagine the 36-year-old playing for their city rivals.
The ex-Man Utd boss is understood to have phoned Ronaldo personally to persuade him to return to Old Trafford.
Speaking with ViaPlay, Ferguson revealed he also spoke to United’s owners to make the deal happen.
“I’m excited like everyone else, there was anticipation all day yesterday and waking up in the morning. I speak for all supporters – it’s a great day for Manchester United.
“A lot of people played their part (in bringing Ronaldo back) and I contributed knowing that really Cristiano wanted to come here and that was important. It worked very well.
“I wouldn’t say it’s emotional but it’s exciting for me and relief because I couldn’t imagine him playing for Man City, I don’t think anyone could.
“That’s why we took steps to make sure he came here and the club then followed in very well and I spoke to the Glazers and it was done. I think he will make an impact on the young players in particular, he’s got the experience to handle the occasion,” he said.
