Jealous’ – Cristiano Ronaldo responds after Wayne Rooney insisted his return to Manchester United has not benefitted the club
Rooney delivered a scathing attack of the Manchester United forward on Monday following United’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City at the weekend.
On Sky Sports, Rooney called for Ronaldo to leave this summer alongside midfielder Paul Pogba, claiming his return has not benefited the club saying the veteran superstar should be replaced by ‘younger, hungry players’
‘And obviously Cristiano is getting on a bit. He certainly isn’t the player he was when he was in his 20s. And that happens, that’s football. He’s a goal threat but I think the rest of the game they need more, they need young, hungry players.
