Ronaldo ‘feels at home’ at United

Ronaldo has long been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, but it now seems the Portuguese is not interested in a move away from Old Trafford.

Ronaldo told News of the World: “This is my home now. I think even when I say my heart is here, people are still going to speak and make things up. But this is where I want to play.

“We are part of an era that can go down in history for the way we are playing and for the trophies we are winning. The boss believes in this team and so do I. And this is where I want to be. Manchester United is now my house.”

Ronaldo has also commented on the special bond between him and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

He said: “He is two different people and they have both helped me become who I am today. Firstly, he is probably the most knowledgeable football coach in the world. I learn from him every day.

“No matter how good I become, I know he is a man who will always be able to teach me that little bit more. I don’t get tired of learning from him because I know every bit of advice he gives me will make me a better player.

“The second person he is, is a father to me. Ever since I joined Manchester United, he has been like a second father to me. And I don’t just respect him, I have the affection for him a child has for his father.

“When he gives me advice that is non-football, I listen because it will make me a better person.”
