After winning the Ballon d’Or, Cristiano Ronaldo explains his love for Man United [video]

With Manchester United sitting in seventh this could well be another difficult pill to swallow for their supporters: The best player in world football expressing his love for a club he asked to leave from.

But, the admiration has been mutual.

After winning the Ballon d’Or, Cristiano Ronaldo explained his love for Manchester United and the online support from Rio Ferdinand, see Tweet below.

Manchester United have also returned the favour – posting Instagram pictures expressing their admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Considering Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or whilst at Old Trafford, it is fair to say United played a massive part in the career of the Portuguese star.

The Manchester United pictures below came with the following tag lines:

Congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the Ballon d’Or tonight, just like he did at #mufc for his performances in 2008.

The world’s best player was made in Manchester. Congratulations once again on winning the Ballon d’Or, Cristiano. #mufc
