Cristiano Ronaldo has talked about the possibility of returning to Manchester United, after revealing he misses the league, his friends at United and the manager.

“To be honest I miss the Premier League a lot,” said Ronaldo. “Of course I have good memories about Manchester. I have good friends there and I miss them a lot, so you never know. Sir Alex Ferguson is like a second father for me. He helped me a lot during the six years I was in Manchester, he taught me many things.”

And how does Ronaldo rate Jose Mourinho, the man tipped to replace Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager?

“I’m playing well because I’m in a good moment, because Jose is here, because I am a father now,” said Ronaldo. “Everything has worked together so I want to carry on like this until the end of the season. It’s fantastic to work with Jose. He is an experienced manager. The titles he has won speak for themselves. He doesn’t do anything special, he is a discipline coach and he pays attention to all the details. It’s amazing, I’m very much enjoying working with him.”
