This Wednesday gives rise to Cristiano Ronaldo’s shock interview with Piers Morgan in full for Talk TV. The 37-year-old Portuguese drops several bombs, especially on his aborted transfer to Manchester City. The five-time Golden Ball was very close to joining the other Manchester club but ended up backpedaling and joining his favorite club, Man United. Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City coach wanted him but Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary Manchester United coach, having had Ronaldo under his orders, told him he couldn’t do it.
“Honestly, I was close to joining City. I talked a lot with them as Guardiola said. They tried to get me but with my history, my heart and what I did before at United, it was not possible. It made the difference and of course Ferguson too. I was surprised but it was a conscious decision. The heart has spoken. My relationship and my past with United was key. I couldn’t have been loyal without it. I do not regret on some points. Ferguson was the key, I discussed with him. He told me it was impossible to play at City and I said OK Boss. It was a good decision” declared the winner of Euro 2016.
