Real Madrid star Ronaldo: I miss Man Utd life

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo admits he misses life at Manchester United. 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 still speak with Rio Ferdinand, Nani, Anderson and Patrice Evra. I still see them as a big family, so of course I miss them.

"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."
