Cristiano Ronaldo still has his name sung on occasion by Manchester United fans inside Old Trafford, so well-loved was he when he was at the club.

At Real Madrid, their fans behave differently, leading Ronaldo to miss his time at United.

I spent a lot of years at Manchester United and it [home fans booing] never happened to me. Not even once. Maybe England is a case apart, the mentality is different. I’m very happy being in Spain but obviously I also miss England because you can’t just turn off the memories.

Ronaldo, who has scored 404 goals in 393 appearances for Real Madrid, has claimed that the fans inside Santiago Bernabeu are wrong to jeer their own players.

I don’t like it and it’s not normal that they whistle you in your own stadium. I just don’t like it. It shouldn’t be the case that a player who always wants to give his best and give 100 per cent for this team, when he makes his first mistake people whistle. It’s not correct. And when you are on a difficult run that is when you need extra support from outside, not less. Sometimes we don’t have it.
