Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United forward, declared that “the Premier is by far the best league in the world”, in an interview given to DAZN.
The Portuguese player admitted that the dismissal of the Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solksjaer had a hard time: “When he left, we were all sad, but it’s part of life and football. When things don’t go the way the club and the fans want, the club must change. I was disappointed, but we have to understand the club and its leaders. It was difficult, but life goes on. “
A dismissal motivated by the irregular season of Manchester United, which the Portuguese valued in the interview: “We have time to improve, potential, team, new coach … Why don’t we think we can do better? We have to get into our heads that we are able to change things now. I do not know the specific way, I am a player, not the coach or the president. I know the way, but I will not say it because it would not be ethical on my part. This year, we have to turn the page, we have a lot to gain. We must believe in it, otherwise it will be a nightmare. “
Although the results are not being the desired ones, Cristiano Ronaldo does not regret having returned to the club with which he won his first Ballon d’Or: “I have returned to Manchester because I love this club. I have not done it for the money or Nothing like that. I love this club and I think we have the potential to win great things, but we must find the best way to achieve those results. “
The Portuguese, in addition, is clear about the objectives that the ‘Red Devils’ must pursue: “Manchester United must win the league, finish second or third. I cannot conceive of another position for Manchester United. In my case, I do not accept that our mentality is less than being in the top three in the Premier League. “
