Premier League – Rooney spoke ill of Cristiano Ronaldo on a TV show and the crosses began. The Portuguese commented on a publication on Instagram and now the Englishman responded with a chicane.
By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).
Cristiano Ronaldo hit back at Wayne Rooney. After the latter suggested that Manchester United should think about a future without Cristiano at the end of the season.
Rooney launched an attack on his former teammate on Monday following the 1-1 draw against Leicester at the weekend.
Speaking on a Sky Sports soccer chat show, Rooney called for Ronaldo to leave this summer. Because his return had not benefited the club. In addition, the Manchester United legend and current Derby County manager took aim at Pogba.

Soon after, Rooney posted a picture of him on Monday Night Football alongside Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and presenter David Jones on Instagram. But Ronaldo took the opportunity to respond to Rooney’s criticism. And he commented on the post with an outrageous phrase:

Rooney analyzed Manchester United
On the show, Rooney assessed Ronaldo’s impact since returning to England. And he admitted that the move has not paid off for Manchester United.
“If you look to the future of the club, you have to go with younger, hungrier players to do everything possible to lift Manchester United in the next two or three years.”
However, Rooney also referred to the Portuguese’s fitness. Something strange as he remains in great shape. But he emphasized his lack of team play:
“Obviously Cristiano is progressing a little bit. He’s certainly not the player he was when he was 20. And that happens, that’s soccer. He’s a goal threat, but I think the rest of the game need more, they need young, hungry players.”
a) Ronaldo’s scored 18 goals for Utd this season, in a poor side, aged 37. Last time Rooney scored 20 in a season for Utd, he was 27.
2) Ronaldo’s still fitter now than Rooney ever was.
3) There’s no footballer in the world with greater hunger than @Cristiano https://t.co/Ta0ASbRQ8p

Rooney took the opportunity to go further. And he gave names that they believe will be important at Manchester United for the future:
“I think they have good young players. I think Sancho will be better next year, I think Marcus will be better next year.”
After Cristiano Ronaldo commented on Rooney’s publication, all the media looked for another answer. And in the middle of Derby County’s press conference, Wayne was asked.

When everyone thought, he was going to put a cooler head on the matter, Rooney went further. Albeit with a bit of subtlety:
“There probably isn’t a football player on the planet that isn’t jealous of Cristiano. The career he’s had, the trophies he’s won, the money he’s earned, the six pack. Bar probably Messi”
“Probably every player in the world is jealous of Ronaldo, bar Messi…”

It remains to be seen whether Cristiano will reply again to his former team-mate. But it is clear that Rooney will never keep quiet.
