    Not true. Van Nistelrooy's time at United was over when he threw a tantrum at being left out of the league cup final. Ferguson wrote in his autobiography that RVN verbally abused Queiroz and had his agent speak to David Gill telling him that his client wanted out because he believed that United couldn't win the CL with youngsters like Rooney and Ronaldo. He also had a spat with Ronaldo but that had nothing to do with Ronaldo's ego. Ferguson also says that after transferring to Real Madrid, RVN had phoned him to apologise for his behaviour and is even on record as saying that it was fair enough for Ferguson to sell him.

    Bale is talented but isn't close to the level of Messi and Ronaldo. What they do season-in and season-out for over a decade, no player in the modern era has come close to. I don't think Bale is a better human being either. Ronaldo does a lot of charity work so just because he's full of himself in interviews doesn't make him a shit person. I'm fine with the bleating of the two greatest ever players making things about themselves rather than the bleating of someone who thinks he is better than he actually is.

    Fair enough. I think having a big ego is part of what makes these two such phenomenal players. Aside from being incredibly talented and dedicated, both these guys have unwavering belief in their own ability. I guess being full of themselves can be seen as a natural consequence of being head and shoulders above everyone else in their profession.

    Seems clear to me that he wasn't seriously suggesting that the CL be renamed...but whatever. I get you hate Ronaldo. If Messi said something like this, you'd probably have no problem with it.

    Someone on reddit posted a translation. https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/8mgu48/what_cristiano_ronaldo_said_translated_and_not/

    It's pretty clear from the full interview that he said this jokingly. And Portugal have very good forward options as well: Andre Silva, Bernado Silva, Guedes, Ronaldo, Gelson Martins and Quaresma. They've also significantly tightened up defensively under Santos which used to be their achilles heel. They aren't among the favourites but I'd have them as dark horses.

    Bale also stoked speculation on his future saying he wants to be playing regularly and will discuss it with his agent. Ronaldo has been pretty great again this season. 44 goals in all competitions (only Messi has more with 45) and finishing as CL top scorer for the 6th season in a row and a record 7th time overall.

    Liverpool should get around that amount. Leicester earned something like 89 million for getting to the quarter finals although they received a 40% share of the market pool going in as league champions whereas Liverpool will only get 10% due to finishing 4th last season.

    Zidane has got to be considered among the top coaches in world football now. He's often accused of being tactically inept but you don't win 3 straight CL titles and a La Liga title by being tactically poor.

    Congratulations to Real Madrid. Three in a row and four in five seasons, 13x European Champs overall. They truly are the greatest club in Europe and unstoppable in this competition.

    Jesus. Karius has had a mare. Enough is enough. Klopp needs to spend heavily on a WC keeper like Oblak. Game over now and two goals gifted by the keeper.

    Just as good. ETA. Mane stepping up. Liverpool still look good for another goal.
