Ronaldo: United Will Win Their Title Back

After ensuring that Manchester City won’t progress out of their Champions League group for a second year running, with the 10 men of Real Madrid holding them to a draw at Wastelands, Cristiano Ronaldo has given his backing to United to win the league this season.

“There are three or four teams who can perhaps win the league, which is why it is the most competitive anywhere in the world,” said Ronaldo. “It will be tough for every team but I think United will do it this year and win their title back. It won’t be easy and it will be very close, but United are stronger in attack this season and that could be the difference.”

Ronaldo met up with Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of the game against City and claims that whilst it’s nice to see his former manager, they did not discuss his return to United.

“I met Alex Ferguson on the day of the game, he came to our hotel in Manchester to speak with Jose Mourinho,” he added. “Of course I talked to him as well. We keep in touch. It was nice to see him again. We just talked about his times with Manchester United and mine with Real Madrid. We were just happy to see each other.”

    Am I truly the first to comment?

    Spot on Ronaldo. I just wish we could roll over teams to win it rather than having to come back everything. It feels good though as it makes winning sweeter.

    Sure we’ll, there’s no doubt about that
    Hope he’ll come back to red side of manchester and give another good years left in his tremendous career

    Wonder what SAF went to talk to Mourinho about. Perhaps to discuss tactics against The Massive, talk about Mourinho at United, or something as simple as just catching up.

    I am pretty optimistic that we are in a superior position to win the title back to Oldtrafford, specially after winning at Stamford bridge and Anfield road.but seriously if we keep conceding goals as our habit this season, then I am afraid the goal difference factor will eat us alive.with the return of Vida everything will be fine until then we mus tighten up, hopefully this season is ours to lose.
