Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo will be heading back to his former club Manchester United as he plays against the club on March 5, 2013 at the old Trafford stadium.
The 27-year-old said he won’t celebrate any goals he scores against Man United in the Champions League round-of-16 tie.
Ronaldo played a six-year term with Manchester united, winning the Champions’ league, Premier league, FA cup and Community league with the club.
He also talked about the role of Sir Alex Ferguson in his life and expressed his gratitude: ‘Ferguson is a fantastic person, he taught me many things; he is like a father in football, I really miss him and my relationship with him.’
The Red Devils boss also showed his love, telling Ronaldo if he ever quits Real Madrid, he hopes Old Trafford will be the first place he turns to.
Ferguson said ‘I’d love to see him here but, firstly, how much would it take to get him and, secondly I don’t think there’s any chance they would want to sell him. It’s fanciful thinking really.’
Ronaldo has scored 170 goals in 169 games since his move to Madrid in 2009. His contract runs till 2015, and Real Madrid would want £120million for the player United sold to them for £80m in 2009.
