Former Manchester United player, Phil Neville, has claimed that he was ‘gutted’ when Cristiano Ronaldo agreed a deal with Real Madrid. The former Manchester United winger, who today insisted he owed everything to United, ‘entertained’ fans in this country, although Phil reckons we still have the best league even though he’s done.

“From an English football point of view I was gutted to see Cristiano Ronaldo leave,” said Neville. “I think he brought a lot to the Premier League, everyone enjoyed playing against him, he is the best player in the world and he entertains people. We want the best players to be playing in the Premier League because we feel we play the best football and we have the best product over here. Real Madrid are spending money but I still believe the Premier League is the best, the most exciting, the most honest, the most entertaining and we can be proud of that.”
