On his future with Manchester United, Ronaldo said he was delighted to be playing for the club that made his career soaring and it was an unbelievable feeling.
“I am still and remain very happy to be here, and what I have to say to the fans is they were amazing. Even when we lost they always supported us, they were always with us. The supporters are always in my heart and people are always there. Those are the people we have to respect because they are always by our side,” Ronaldo explained.
“For me, the most important thing is to try to win games and try to win some championships or cups, but I believe that Manchester will be where it is. As I said before, sometimes it takes time but I still believe.” (Ant/OL-1)
