Evra: Ronaldo Still Loves United

Ahead of Tuesday’s big game against Real Madrid, Patrice Evra has claimed that the game will be difficult for Cristiano Ronaldo because of the feelings he has for his former club.

“It is difficult when you play with love,” Evra told MUTV. “Cristiano will get a great reception on Tuesday because of what he achieved for Manchester United. The fans will never forget what he did. Also, he still loves the club. I remember after the game in Madrid we had a chat. He said it was going to be more difficult to come here. This is his house, so there will be a lot of emotion. I hope he doesn’t play well because of that. But Ronaldo is a winner. He is a big competitor. If he can win against Manchester United he will do it.”

    Yeah it is his house. I dont think the night will get to him. He will feel totally at home and comfortable. If they go through he will have a big part to play in it. And im sure he will show remorse. But what good is that to us? Fuck it im almost sick of the “love” thing with ronaldo now…

    Love conquers all! And it seems Ronaldo is looking for some loving on this blog disguising himself as the meet more singles advert girl! It’s the trout pout that gave it away haha.

    Evra and SAF are playing mind games with Ronnie, they know he plays well under adversity, why not try love, this is just a tactic to try to mess with his head, unlikely to work, but only God knows…

    Fcuk RONALDO…..

    The treble is in our sight

    @nbi….exacttly. ronaldo always plays well under adversity.

    ‘Our’ Ronnie is a football machine, he is playing mind games, probably with a pinch of mourinho, but nothing will stand in his way except excellent defending from us and a great deal of good fortune on our part!
