“People were speaking about me this summer but that was normal because of what I did during the season,” said Ronaldo. “What people are saying now (the recent speculation about an agreement with Real Madrid) is not true. Who says that is a liar because I am happy at the club, I want to stay here. I feel at home here. I feel very happy here. When I arrived at the stadium, to play (my first game of this season) against Villarreal, I felt a little bit of pressure. But the fans were very good and this is why I feel the Manchester United supporters are amazing. I love the fans because they have been brilliant with me, not just this season but every season. Like I said before, I feel at home in Manchester.”
Ronaldo then went on to confirm what a massive part Sir Alex Ferguson has to play in his place at the club.
“The boss is always important for me, not just last season but every season,” added Ronaldo. “I am at this club because of him. He saw me in a few games before I played against Manchester United – people think I came here just because I played (well) against United but it’s not true. He’s always helped me and I said to him, “I want to be part of this club with you. I want to win trophies with you.” He’s very important in my career, Sir Alex Ferguson.”
