Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo sent his old boss a touching message as a tribute to the great man.
”Hi boss. I have this chance to send you a message that I want to share with everyone like you did with me which was unbelievable and I’ll never forget it in my life.
“When I arrived at Manchester as an 18-year-old, you were like a father for me in football and you gave me opportunities and taught me many things, and I feel glad to send you this message.
“I remember when I was there in the club and I asked for the No. 28 shirt and you gave me the No. 7. It put me under a lot of pressure but you told me it wouldn’t be a problem and that I would deserve to put this shirt on my body because I was a fantastic player.
“You taught me how to be a good professional, a good boy and you deserve this award because you are a fantastic man and person. You are the number one.
“Have a good evening and we will keep in touch. Take care.”
