Man Utd boss: Ronaldo takes his punishment

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson claims the taunts and rough treatment Ronaldo receives from opposition defenders is not affecting his game. The prospective FIFA world player of the year shows no sign of getting kicked out of the game, with Ferguson believing the 23-year-old is handling the harsh treatment with ease.

"I think Cristiano is coping well," said Ferguson.

"Let's be honest, nobody likes getting whacked all the time. But Cristiano has the courage to get on with it. He carries that mantel well."
