Last week, Sir Alex Ferguson claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo was given a hard time regarding his over the top reactions to being fouled.

Patrice Evra has today confirmed that story, whilst also claiming that despite his big ego, Ronaldo plays for the team.

“He can overdo it when he falls,” said Evra. “Even we take the mickey out of him for that. He doesn’t like it much. It annoys him. It’s clear he has his ego but, honestly, he plays for the team. He is cool.”
