Despite his success in Spain, Ronaldo claims he still has fond memories of the time he spent in the North West under Alex Ferguson.
The 27-year-old told ZOO Magazine: “I speak with Sir Alex sometimes and of course I miss Manchester.
“It felt like I left a family back there because I spent six years with all those guys and I still have a very good relationship with Ferguson and the rest of the lads.
"I especially miss the apple crumble and custard they served at Carrington after training — it was amazing!"
When asked what he specifically missed about working under Fergie, Ronaldo joked: “Ha! I miss his good moods all the time! Always happy. Ha ha!
“But he always had a good energy around the players and the team — and I miss that.”
