Ex-Man Utd No2 Queiroz: You can't question Ronaldo's loyalty

Former Manchester United assistant boss Carlos Queiroz insists Cristiano Ronaldo's loyalty should not be questioned over his world record move to Real Madrid.

"When you talk about loyalty, you must understand the loyalty has two directions," Queiroz, who enjoyed two spells as Sir Alex Ferguson's number two, told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme.

"In terms of the modern game, loyalty is to be a great professional, to be committed to the club, to be engaged with the coach and the vision of the club and nobody can put one thing against Cristiano because as a professional he's brilliant.

"But as you know with 95% or 96% of movement in football it is the managers at the clubs that dictate the movements.

"Once in a while some of the top players have the capacity and the power to create their own motivation."
