Alex Ferguson Bet On Cristiano Ronaldo To Top Real Madrid Charts
The Manchester United manager had no doubts that the player he groomed to be one of the world’s best would be a success after his €94 million move to the Spanish capital.
Ronaldo’searly goal against Villarreal in midweek took his tally to five and he is the joint top goalscorer along with David Villa and Barça duo Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi.
With two more in the opening Champions League game the Portuguese star has made an impressive start and his former boss admitted he always thought that would be the case.
Ferguson explained that he had placed a crafty bet with bookmakers that Ronaldo would top the scoring charts and he is confident he will be paid.
“I saw his goal on Wednesday, what a goal. He has done well to get seven goals right away,” he told the Mail on Sunday.
“He’s started very well. They play 38 league games, European games, Spanish Cup, so you never know.”
