Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has penned an emotional note to former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson who clocks 79 on New Year Eve; saying he is like a father to him.

It was gathered through former Manchester United chief executive Peter Kenyon that Ferguson persuaded the club to sign Ronaldo in 2003.

The Red Devils spent much of the summer of that year in pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain forward Ronaldinho, who was one of the game’s most high-profile players after shining for Brazil in their World Cup triumph the previous summer.
