Van Basten: Ronaldo needs AC Milan to believe in him

The Holland coach said: “It will be interesting to watch how it develops.

“There’s no doubting Ronaldo’s qualities. But on the other hand, if he still had a lot to offer, then why would Real Madrid sell him? We’ll just have to wait and see.

“Ronaldo needs Milan to believe in him. To boost his confidence and show faith in him. You don’t lose your quality.

“I have great confidence in Carlo Ancelotti to make the most of this opportunity. To help a great player rediscover his best form is a beautiful challenge for a coach.”
