What Alex Ferguson told me before my father’s death – Cristiano Ronaldo



Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has recalled what legendary Sir Alex Ferguson told him during his father’s death in 2005..

Before his return to the Premier League giants last summer, Ronaldo had won three Premier League titles, two League Cups, an FA Cup and a Champions League trophy playing under Ferguson.

The Portuguese recalled Ferguson’s deep conversation with him when discussing his favourite moment from their relationship in Inside View.

The Portugal captain joined Man United from his home club Sporting CP as an 18-year-old in 2003.

Ronaldo’s father José Dinis Aveiro died two years later while his son was still emerging as one of the game’s best young talents.

“I remember one day that my father was in hospital and I was so emotional, so very low and I speak with him [Ferguson],” Ronaldo said on Inside View.

“And he said: ‘Cristiano, it doesn’t matter, go there.’ Two or three days. And we had difficult games, and I was a key player in that moment. And he said it will be tough but I understand your situation and you can go to see your father.

“For me this is the most important thing apart from winning Champions League, Premier Leagues, cups and stuff, because as I told you in the beginning, what he said to me, he always did. So I have to appreciate that moment.”
