Cristiano Ronaldo was disappointed to see City win the league last weekend but says that United are still the “kings of England.”
“I saw a few days ago they scored two goals in the last minutes, 91 and 93,” he said. “I had a bet that Manchester United would win the league but I lost. I feel very disappointed because United are still in my heart. City have a fantastic team now, but I think Manchester will carry on being kings of England.”
Teasing like usual, Ronaldo left the door open to a potential return to United.
“The future? Nobody knows,” he said. “But I feel very happy here. It’s a great club, fantastic fans… it’s great. In one year or two you never know. A man’s head is always complicated.”
