United take on Chelsea tomorrow so all the players start crawling out of the woodwork to give their thoughts.
Chelsea’s fullback, Jose Bosingwa, has today claimed Chelsea know how to stop Cristiano Ronaldo. Well, it’s not exactly hard! Hasn’t he been watching United recently?
“To stop Cristiano is not easy,” said Bosingwa, “but at Chelsea there are people who know him well, including the manager. We know what to do to stop him putting on a show.”
If that’s the case, you probably could have done with stopping him in Moscow, when he ran rings around Michael Essien all night as well as scoring our only goal.
Secondly, if all their focus is on Ronaldo, they’ve got their tactics wrong. Even though he’s the fifth highest scorer in the league this season, despite missing the opening months in recovering from surgery, he’s hardly been setting the World alight. Bloody Middlesbrough kept him quiet enough the other night at Old Trafford!
