Manchester United have right man in Jose Mourinho: Ronaldo

By Robert Jones

Jose Mourinho will take over as Manchester United manager with one of the club's most famous former players backing him to bring the good times back to Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who played for Mourinho at Real Madrid, ruled out a reunion after his old boss agreed a three-year deal to become United's new boss.

Ronaldo said: "I think it's good. If it's something United wanted, I think it's good. I hope Manchester United get back to being what they were. In the last years they lacked an identity.

"It hurts me seeing them like that because it's a club that I carry in my heart. I wish Mourinho can carry them to the top."

But the winger also ruled out a move back to Manchester.

"I am happy and I want to stay at this club," he said.

"I don't see any other club that is better than Real Madrid. If you weigh things up, there is no better club. So all other clubs can forget about me because Real Madrid is the best."
