Cristiano Ronaldo hopes to play with Wayne Rooney again one day…


Cristiano Ronaldo says he would love to play with Wayne Rooney again before the pair retire.

The Real Madrid forward left Manchester United in 2009, but still holds Rooney in high regard.

“I miss playing with Rooney. Maybe we will play together again one day,” Ronaldo said in a new BBC documentary about the England striker.

“He was so powerful I was calling him Pitbull. The power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength and he never stops.

“He’s a fantastic team player and he scores. He’s a fantastic boy and he helped me a lot when he came to join us in Manchester.”
