Man Utd boss Mourinho taunts Cristiano: Ronaldo Nazario, the best Ronaldo EVER!

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has declared Ronaldo Nazario the 'best Ronaldo'.

Cristiano Ronaldo had an explosive relationship with Mourinho when the pair were together at Real Madrid and almost came to blows after one match in 2013.

But when speaking about the Brazilian striker Ronaldo in a documentary about the late Sir Bobby Robson, Mourinho hails him as the best.

In the film charting Robson's career as a player and as a manager, Mourinho declared: "Ronaldo Nazario, the best Ronaldo EVER!"

Mourinho also described Ronaldo's season with Barcelona where he scored a club record of 47 goals before he was sold to Inter Milan.

He said: "I never saw the same, I never saw the same.

"It was the best year ever for Ronaldo.

"He [Robson] was like a dad to him.

"He understood the Brazilian kid personality and at the same time, he gave him the freedom to allow him allowed him to play on the pitch.

"I remember Bobby every day... A person only dies when the last person who loves him dies."
