Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects Cristiano Ronaldo to continue improving.

"The boy's form obviously demands your attention and you are giving him plenty of that," Ferguson told the media.

"I can't do anything about that, it's not my department. He wouldn't be getting it if he wasn't doing it. We have to be pleased with that.

"His form is absolutely fantastic, there is no end to where we think he can go. He has got the world in front of him.

"His tenacity to keep getting the ball and courage to keep it up all the time is terrific.

"I want the boy to continue doing what he is doing and hopefully it'll be a successful season for the team."
