Man Utd's Evra sends plea to Real Madrid's Ronaldo - 'I hope he comes home'

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has called for Cristiano Ronaldo to return home.

The 27-year old Portuguese attacker starred for United prior to his 2009 shift to Real Madrid where has become one of the world's best footballers.

During his time in Spain, Ronaldo has scored 170 goals in 169 appearances whilst winning the Spanish title once, the Copa del Rey once and the Supercopa on one occasion but Evra feels he can really leave his legacy on the game if he returns to Old Trafford.

"I have been in touch with him many times," Evra told MUTV. "He still loves Manchester United and misses Manchester United.

"He has done some incredible things for Real Madrid, he broke all the records, but they didn't show him the respect he deserves.

"When Ronny was here, he got the love from all the players, the manager and the fans.

"He is a winner. But he likes people to like him. He misses Manchester United because it was his house.

"I always say I hope he will come back because this is his home.

"If he wants to win the Golden Ball (Ballon d'Or) he has to come back to Manchester United."
