I know, they get such a bad rap. All their uniforms are comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and fairly priced for the most part.

His relationship with Ronaldo is more fractious. "Ah, Ronaldo, the phenomenon," he laughs dryly when remembering their recent public spat. "I was defending him when I talked about him. I said listen, Real Madrid has a big problem. They change a lot of players and coaches but people are only saying Ronaldo is not in shape. It's the whole of Real Madrid that is not in shape - not just Ronaldo. That's what I said. He then spoke very angrily: 'Oh, Pele should not talk about my life!' But I don't care. It don't bother me.
is that what you're talking about redrover?

On the Brazilian team, nobody stood out in midfield. In 2002 and 1998 they had Rivaldo. 2006 was Ronaldinho's chance to shine.
Zidane on the other hand had a number of great performances.

The guy is a tank. He can run through the middle of a defensive line and score. Reminds me a little bit of Van Nistelroy but with better ball skills, more power and better acceleration.

he said he wasn't in good shape. hardly means that they hate each other. besides, it was true. everyone saw what ronaldo looked like in 2006. he was pretty big.

While we are talking about the brazilian Ronaldo, from 26 seconds-30 seconds is probably the sickest thing I've ever seen anyone do.

Well I don't like Cristiano Ronaldo that much anymore. I am a Man United fan and he doesn't have any respect for the club that made him who he is today, a brilliant player. The lack of respect and the diving makes him go down on my list of favourite players. But he's still good.

He really has no gratitude to Man. United, which he should. Man. United gave him a platform to grow and become the player he is today. Without them, he'd probably still be back at Sporting. I do not like Ronaldo at all.

agreed. man u and sir alex helped ronaldo a zutload. BUT ronaldo in return has helped them win. ronaldo doesn't owe united any favors. there's nothing more for him at united. i want him to stay but a move to real madrid will help his career more.

he'll prolly be at united at the beginning of the season cuz he does have a contract to fulfill.

and how do u know he has no gratitude to man united? did he text u to tell u or sumthing?

and yea, he is a diving diva, but who isn't now a days.
