Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo says retired Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will always remain in his heart.

Ronaldo was asked by Shortlist what Fergie would make of his underwear modeling shots.

"He's going to love them, because he loves me. This is a fantastic man - one of the most important people I've met in football," he told

"I have him in my heart because part of my success is because of him. He was my father in football, so I have to appreciate what he did for me."
