Cristiano Ronaldo: I learned art of football at Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has paid tribute to Manchester United for teaching him “the art of football” and revealed how Sir Alex Ferguson surprised him on his arrival in England.

The Real Madrid forward moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon aged just 18, but went on to help fire the club to an FA Cup, three successive Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy.

He has consolidated his place among football’s elite during his time at the Bernabeu, taking his Ballon d’Or haul to four and becoming Real’s all-time top scorer, but admits his time in Manchester under ‘father figure’ Ferguson set him up for success.
