alongside former Manchester United team-mate
Ronaldo moved to United as an 18-year-old
from Sporting Lisbon in 2003, while Rooney left
Everton for Old Trafford a year later.
The pair went on to win three Premier League
titles, the Champions League and one FA Cup
together, before the Portugal captain joined Real

play again together some day," he said.
"He was the kid of England. Everybody loved

pitbull. The power of Wayne Rooney is his
mentality and strength and he never stops.
"He's a fantastic team player and he scores!
He's a fantastic boy and he helped me a lot
when he came to join us in Manchester."
