Manchester United fans have agreed with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel’s views that Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘a big champion, a big reference and a big personality’.

Speaking to the Chelsea club website, Tuchel said: “It’s not a secret any team in the world without Cristiano is in some parts of the game a weaker team, because he is one of the greatest ever players.
“They lost a big champion, a big reference and a big personality. But you can win games and be a strong team without Cristiano Ronaldo. This is also a truth. And they are.
“They have a lot of experience, they have a lot of talent, and they have a big squad. They have a very experienced coach, and they are a proud club that is used to winning. They have a certain mentality that is shaped by winning, and shaped by the demand of winning.
“It is my first time to play Juventus. We face hard competitors, and this is what we like. We are up for tough challenges and we hope to constantly get better. This challenge will make us a better team, and we are looking forward to it.”
And United fans on social media seemed to agree with him, here’s what some of them had to say.
Joaquim Santos: “Yes, he is really good! The best.”
Brian Thomasson: “At least someone can give him credit fair play.”
Heinrich Brian Janklaas: “If Ronaldo stayed at the club and never left for Madrid, even David Moyes’ job would’ve been safe at Man United.”
Fernando Rodrigues: “CR7MADEIRA THE BEST PLAYER OF THE WORLD.”
Irene Barbour: “Simply the best CR7.”
Luke Barrett: “He was born to be a leader.”
