Cristiano Ronaldo surprised everyone with his interview with Piers Morgan. At one point, he also mentioned his former colleague, Wayne Rooney; “Probably [it's jealousy]. Probably - because he finished his career in his 30s.
I'm still playing at a high level; I'm not going to say that I'm looking better than him, which is true”. - he said, as quoted by eurosport.com Not long after the interview, Wayne Rooney had to react to what Ronaldo said.
Wayne expects the club to react in an adequate way and to solve things like this: “Well, listen, Cristiano Ronaldo's a fantastic player and, as I've said before, he and [Lionel] Messi are the two best players probably to play the game.
And, again, it's not a criticism.
What I've said is age comes to all of us, and Cristiano is obviously feeling that and he's finding it hard to deal with that.
Obviously he's done an interview that's gone global. Bit strange, some of the comments are strange in there but I'm sure Manchester United will deal with it once they've seen the full interview and they'll take whatever action they need to take”.
It is still not known what will happen with Ronaldo. Some expect Ronaldo to retire after the World Cup. However, that doesn't seem like a real option at the moment. The Portuguese himself does not know what will happen.
It's difficult to tell right now, it’s because, we, my mood is right now to the World Cup.
"It's probably my last World Cup, of course, my fifth World Cup. I don't know what's gonna happen after the World Cup, but as I told you before, and I will say again, the fans will be always in my heart”. It would be a great story if Portugal won the World Cup.
