What Ronaldo told me after Man Utd's 2-1 win over Villarreal - Rio Ferdinand

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand
has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo told
him that he didn’t play well against Villarreal following the Red Devils’ Champions League 2-1 win on Wednesday night.

Ferdinand said that Ronaldo also told him that he knew he would score against
Villarreal at Old Trafford. Man United defeated Villarreal, thanks to a late goal from Ronaldo.

Paco Alcacer had opened the scoring for
Villarreal before Alex Telles equalized for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

“He [Ronaldo] text me tonight saying “I didn’t’ play well, but I knew I’d score'” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“That is the belief that he has. The other players are feeding off it. It is a great place to be.

“United’s performance today wasn’t great, it wasn’t at the level Ole wants it to be.

“But when you need a goal, a moment to
galvanize the squad, the stadium, the
fanbase, Cristiano Ronaldo steps up.

“He wants to be that guy the chance falls to. His goal record says it all. He’s there for the big moments. He’s a big part of that too.

“When you have a player like CristianoRonaldo, the players in the dressing room are given life.”
