Fergie betting on Ronaldo

Interesting quotes from Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson about Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo. Fergie sold Ronaldo to Madrid for £80million this summer but remains a big fan of his former player.

Ronaldo has settled quickly into the Real Madrid lineup and he has scored seven goals already this season.

The United manager is cheering every goal his former player scores in La Liga for Real Madrid having shrewdly backed the player at the bookies to end the season as the top scorer in Spain. Ferguson said:

“He was a great bet, 7-1 to be the top scorer. Did I take it? Absolutely!”

Ferguson thinks there is a chance he could even emulate his haul of 42 goals at United two seasons ago.

“‘He’s started very well. They play 38 league games, European games, Spanish Cup, so you never know.”
