GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS
Gary Lineker has revealed that Manchester United chief Ed Woodward completed Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer in his back garden.
Lineker explained that the United supremo lives next door to him and came over to his house one day on the phone to Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.
Shortly after that call, Ronaldo was a United player once more.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s United team-mate Edison Cavani claims he doesn’t mind playing second fiddle to the Portuguese star at the club.
Cavani hasn’t had much playing time since Ronaldo’s Old Trafford return but he insists he’s happy at United as it’s just a part of football.
The Uruguayan said: “Sometimes you play more, sometimes you play less, managers make decisions, but that doesn’t stop the work to always be competitive.”
Speaking of Ronaldo, Liverpool legend Didi Hamann reckons the ex-Juventus star is keeping United afloat this season and without him they’re pathetic.
Hamman told Sky Sports: “The one and only reason why Manchester United are still in the title race and doing alright in the Champions League is Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Finally, Red Devils legend Peter Schmeichel has blasted critics calling for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to lose his job.
The Dane told fans to have patience with Solskjaer or risk heading back to the days of crisis at the club when Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho were in charge.
He said to ITV Sports: “I think it’s ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous.
“Do they want another [Louis] Van Gaal or another [Jose] Mourinho? What do they want?”
