Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has told Robbie Brady he's the man to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Independent reveals Brady was queuing to get lunch, when someone cut in. It was Cristiano Ronaldo, who correctly assumed a novice would just step aside.

As Brady walked off, tray in hand a few moments later than he expected, a watching Alex Ferguson called him over.

"Why did you let him in there?"

"It's Ronaldo boss."

"You're here to take his place son. Don't let me see you do that again."
