Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is proud of the success of Cristiano Ronaldo. Ferguson is delighted with the way the club helped the now Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo win the Ballon d'Or.

"With all the young players that come to us in their formative years, you have got a job to make them good footballers but also to show them how to grow up the right way," he said.

"Cristiano came to us at 18, just a young lad from Portugal who didn't know the country.

"But he learned the language, adapted very well and he has turned out fantastically as a human being, just as was the case with the Nevilles, Scholes, Beckham, Giggs and all those lads."
