Carlos Queiroz yesterday defended Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid, claiming there is no way the winger’s loyalty should come in to question.

Today, Queiroz has again shown understanding towards Ronaldo, although believes that United are the right club for him.

“Manchester United was the right club for him,” said Queiroz. “But at the end of the day, the player has made a decision and United have had a great relationship with him because they have had the best of his performances for the last six years. Cristiano believes it is time to move and the fee is huge, but he has won all the trophies and become the best player in the world in a United shirt.”
