Ronaldo reveals how Manchester United legend Sir Alex gave him time off to visit sick father

Ronaldo reveals how Manchester United legend Sir Alex gave him time off to visit sick father

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson once gave Cristiano Ronaldo downtime to return home and visit his sick dad.

The Portuguese star retold the touching anecdote during a talk for the Red Devils’ YouTube channel.

Ronaldo said: “Probably he doesn’t remember, but I will say it because it’s a beautiful story.

“One day, my father was in hospital, and I was so emotional, very low.

“And I spoke with him and he said: ‘Cristiano, go there for two or three days.’

“We had difficult games and I was a key player in that moment.

“He said: ‘It will be tough because we have difficult games, but I understand your situation and I’ll leave you [out] and you can go and see your father.’

“For me, these are the most important things – apart from winning Champions Leagues, to win the Premier League, to win cups and stuff.

“So I have to appreciate him, because what he said to me, he always did. I have to appreciate that.”

Ronaldo’s father Jose Dinis Aveiro died from liver failure in 2005, aged 52.

He missed most of his son’s historic achievements and Ronnie once said: “I really don’t know my father 100 per cent.”

The United icon also described him as a ‘drunk person’.
