Christiano Ronaldo ‘Storm in a teacup’
By Tarryn Le Chat
Portugal winger Christiano Ronaldo seeks to leave Manchester United Football Club, after England Striker Wayne Rooney fouled Portugal’s Ricardo Carvalno during the World Cup quarterfinal, which Portugal won. Ronaldo ran forty metres to protest against Rooney when the foul was committed, which saw the England striker red-carded. The Portuguese winger is now reported as saying he can no longer play for Manchester United and is opting for a place in Spanish giants’ Real Madrid or Barcelona football club. Ronaldo says, “After what happened with Rooney, I can’t remain there. I will not be welcomed in England. There are making a ‘storm in a teacup’. In a couple of days, I will have my future sorted out and I want to go to Real Madrid”. The likelihood of Ronaldo leaving Manchester and playing for Real Madrid, however, seems slim. Newly appointed coach of Real Madrid, Fabio Capello exclaims, “Christiano Ronaldo is a great player, but he belongs to Manchester”. Further talks will have to take place before anything is finalised.
