Man Utd Da Silva twins forever grateful to Ronaldo

Manchester United's Da Silva twins have spoken of how Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo helped them to settle at Old Trafford.

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."
