Rafael says Ronaldo took them under his wing when they first arrived.
"He is a simple guy and a very nice person. He was the first to greet us when we came to Manchester and the ease of the language helped us to get along. My brother and I would spend a lot of time at his house and he in ours.
"He was a great friend and I will always have good memories of him."
On the pitch, Fabio says Ronaldo is the best: "Cristiano Ronaldo dribbles, but always with an objective. Look at the number of goals he scored this season."
