“I’ve said it many ti’mes, Cristiano is the b’est player in the world,” Portugal head coach Fer’nando Santos told a press conference when asked about his cap’tain’s decision to stay at Man Un’ited for the next sea’son.
“The choice to stay at Manch’ester United is his choice, it’s not for me to s’ay.
“It’s a personal cho’ice. What I do know is t’hat there are few who have the oppor’tunity to play for Manches’ter United.”
Ronaldo has been quite open ab’out how exc’ited he is to work under Erik ten Hag – and how eag’er he is to return Man United to ‘where they bel’ong’.
The 37-year-old who won t’he fans’ vote for t’he club’s Player of the Season aw’ard scored 24 g oals in all competition last camp’aign and is certai’nly not done at the top lev’el.
