Cristiano Ronaldo's management company have issued a statement insisting that quotes attributed to their client over the weekend are incorrect as he has given no interviews since leaving Manchester United on June 11. Gestifute have issued a statement reiterating that the player has not spoken to the press.
It read: "Given the strident way that statements allegedly attributed to Cristiano Ronaldo have been printed, particularly in the English media, Gestifute reiterates what it recently stated: Cristiano Ronaldo has been silent since he went on holiday, and all statements (in which he is supposedly quoted) are totally false and abusive.
"The best player in the world - who is spending the off-season with his family - has not, to date, given any interviews, nor will he in the next few days.
"As a result, it can be restated here that any statements that are still being attributed to him are devoid of truth and authenticity and must not be taken seriously."
