Brazil legend Ronaldo: I hope Manchester United lose every game under Ferguson
Real Madrid legend Ronaldo has stated that he hopes Manchester United "lose every single game" after Sir Alex Ferguson’s recent remarks about his weight.
The United boss described Ronaldo as the "old and fat one" when asked to compare the Brazilian to his namesake Cristano ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League win at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old previously responded to the Scot’s comments with a diplomatic response but has since stated that his former side "shut his mouth" and that he hopes the Premier League side lose all their games under Ferguson.
He said: "I haven't placed any jinx, Real Madrid shuts his mouth for me.
"But I think it was a lack of respect. A very experienced football professional honored with the title of 'Sir' in England spoke such words as a lack of respect to me. I thought this was not polite.
"I have no more words for this gentleman except that I hope his team lose every single game they play."
The Brazilian is widely considered one of the best ever players, after scoring more than 400 goals during an illustrious career that saw him win the World Cup twice and earn the FIFA World Player of the Year award three times.
However, Ronaldo was also well-known for his issues with weight, which recently saw him turn to reality TV to lose more than four stone throughout the course of Brazilian show 'Medida Certa'.
