How I’ll close mouths of critics at Man Utd – Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said that he would close the mouths of critics by winning something at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo disclosed this while speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Man United’s home Premier League clash with Liverpool.

The Portugal captain, who returned to Man United on transfer deadline day from Juventus, had been criticized recently for his defensive role at the Red Devils.

“To be honest, I’m 36, I win everything so am I going to be worried about the people who say bad things about me? I sleep good at night,” Ronaldo said.

“I go to my bed with my conscience very good. Keep going with that because I will still close mouths and win things.

“Criticism is always part of the business. I’m not worried about that. And I see it as a good thing to be honest. If they worry about me or they speak about me, it’s because they know my potential and value in football still. So it’s good. I’ll give you an example: if you’re in a school and you’re the best student, you ask the worst student if he likes the best, they’ll say they don’t like him.

“I think the main word is that I’m still happy and enjoying football. It doesn’t matter how many things I won in my career. I win everything but I’m still motivated. I’m in a new chapter of my life, even with my age, and this is why I am here – to try to win and I think Manchester needs to be at this level of winning and thinking to win big things so I’m here to help.”
