Pics: Sir Alex Ferguson & Cristiano Ronaldo embrace after Real Madrid 1 – Man United 1

There were some touching scenes after Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United as Cristiano Ronaldo and Sir Alex Ferguson embraced after a titanic clash.

Fergie’s love for Ronaldo and vice versa is well known after the six years they spent together at Manchester United.

The Portuguese forward has gone on record as saying that Ferguson “was like a father” to him and the Manchester United boss was fulsome in his praise for Ronaldo in the lead up to the Champions League tie.

You can expect plenty of back slapping ahead of Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford at the beginning of March for what looks like a sensational second leg.
