Ronaldo appeals to Real fans

Cristiano Ronaldo has asked the Real Madrid fans to be more like

those of Manchester United.

The Portugal international moved to Spain from Old Trafford

for a world record fee over the summer.

“We know that we have to entertain but sometimes it isn’t

possible,” Ronaldo told Marca.

“We always try but sometimes, when the team isn’t playing

well, the fans could give us more support.

“The Manchester United fans, for example, were very

intimidating for Liverpool and Manchester City.

“I think if our supporters tried to do the same it would be a

lot better for everyone and would give the players a big boost.”

Madrid’s expensively-assembled team struggled to gel at the

start of the season but now sit two points behind Primera Division

leaders Barcelona after a run of six wins in seven games.
