Ronaldo Will Come Back One Day, Hopes Ferguson
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson feels that Cristiano Ronaldo could still make a return to Old Trafford one day.
The 24-year-old Ronaldo joined Real Madrid for a record 80 million pound deal. Ferguson said that the Portuguese striker still has lot of time to make a return to Manchester later in his career.
"He may come back, you never know. Sometimes it happens that way. He loved United. If you look back at the six years he had with us, he never missed training," Ferguson said.
"That's one of the things he has above all other players - he was never injured, he always played. And his best is yet to come. He's only 24. He came to the right club at the right part of his career.
"He could have gone to Real Madrid, Barcelona or other clubs. But he came to the right one and appreciates that. It was always his intention to make a move," he added.
Ferguson admitted that Ronaldo's absence is a huge loss and it would be challenge for the team to overcome it.
"He's the best player in this world by absolutely miles, streets ahead of Lionel Messi, and Kaka."
He went on to add that in Ronaldo's absence, United will have to play in a different way.
