Rio Ferdinand Finally Breaks His Silence On Ronaldo’s Transfer Back To Man United

Speaking on his official YouTube channel, Rio Ferdinand said: “One thing I have to say is that the Manchester United hierarchy when they needed to move there was no looking back. They performed, I must say, perfectly at every step, every point. There was no looking over their shoulder, there was no hesitancy about it.

“You have to act when someone like Cristiano Ronaldo comes on the scene and there is an opportunity for him to continue his legacy. If Man United had let that slip, and for him to have gone across the city to the other side, you would have had to have had security 24/7 around the clock at the stadium.

“Listen, there has been a lot of criticism that has been pointed at different people in the hierarchy at Man Utd. In this situation, they have performed perfectly in what they have done because Ronaldo coming to town… this is the hottest ticket in town. There is no hotter ticket around in the world.”
