Wayne Rooney has responded to Cristiano Ronaldo’s nasty comments about him.
Ronaldo called England’s record goalscorer a “rat” after Rooney criticized his behavior at Manchester United.
The Portugal international’s comments were below the belt and have been heavily criticized since, but Rooney has given a mature response to deflect attention.
Rooney’s response to Ronaldo
Rooney was asked about Ronaldo’s bombshell comments at the 2022 Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai.
The Man United legend replied, “Cristiano is a fantastic player, and he and Messi are the two best to ever play the game.”
Age comes to us all, and Cristiano is feeling it and finding it hard to deal with.
“He gave a global interview.” Some of the comments are strange, but I’m sure Manchester United will handle it once they see the full interview.
