Recent media attention has focused on Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese legend struggled to make Manchester United’s starting XI this season and didn’t play well when he did. The Real Madrid legend’s Piers Morgan interview upset many football fans.
Since then, Ronaldo and Manchester United have parted ways. Rumors of a move to Saudi Arabia are unconfirmed.
Ronaldo is with Portugal at the World Cup. Recent events have led to rumors that he’s hard to manage.
Carlo Ancelotti managed Ronaldo for two years at Real Madrid and won La Decima. He wasn’t hard to manage for the Italian. Manager told Corriere dello Sport, per 90min:
“I’ve coached him for two years and there were no problems. In fact he solved them for me.
“Cristiano trains well, he pays attention to detail, everything was easy for me to manage. He is an exceptional player.”
Real Madrid boss on Ronaldo
Ancelotti coached Ronaldo to great success. The Portuguese superstar was at his peak.
The way he left Manchester United raised questions about his legacy at Old Trafford.
Next up is where Ronaldo will go. After Manchester United, it’s unlikely he’ll join an elite European club. His star power is undeniable.
Chelsea rumors have been circulating for a while. After Gabriel Jesus’ injury, some have suggested a short stint at Arsenal. Real Madrid return is unlikely.
