Yesterdayâ€™s win over ÂSunderland was the day the club renamed the towering North Stand after Ferguson and announced a statue will be unveiled at Old Trafford in his honour next summer.
Ronaldo said: â€śI wanted to go to the party. It was amazing for Sir Alex. Heâ€™s had such an amazing career and he keeps going. ÂBecause of our Âtraining Âschedules I couldnâ€™t make it. Thatâ€™s why I was desperate to speak to him on the phone.
â€śUnfortunately I couldnâ€™t get through so I told chief executive David Gill to pass on my Âcongratulations for all Sir Alex has achieved. He is a fantastic manager. He helped me so much in my career.â€ť
