Former Man U star Ronaldo admits he misses life at Old Trafford

London, Apr 24(ANI): Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he misses life at Old Trafford, and claimed that he is still in touch with many players and officials at the club.

The Portuguese forward became the world's most expensive player when he left United to move to Real Madrid in an 80 million pound switch three years ago.

Despite his success in Spain, Ronaldo claims he still has fond memories of the time he spent in the North West under Alex Ferguson.

"I speak with Sir Alex sometimes, and of course I miss Manchester. It felt like I left a family back there, because I spent six years with all those guys and I still have a very good relationship with Ferguson and the rest of the lads," The Sun quoted Ronaldo, as saying.

"I still speak with Rio Ferdinand, Nani, Anderson and Patrice Evra. I still see them as a big family, so of course I miss them," he added.

"I especially miss the apple crumble and custard they served at Carrington after training - it was amazing!" he said.

When asked what he specifically missed about working under Ferguson , Ronaldo joked: "Ha! I miss his good moods all the time! Always happy. Ha ha!"

"But he always had a good energy around the players and the team - and I miss that," he added. (ANI)
