Cristiano Ronaldo thanked Sir Alex Ferguson for choosing him as man of the match, after his two goals won the UEFA Super Cup for Real Madrid last night.
“He made it easy for me to choose,” said Sir Alex, who managed Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United before he went on to join Madrid.
“Normally in a Cup Final it is difficult to choose a man of the match but Cristiano made it easy for me.”
Ronaldo was delighted with his performance at the Cardiff City Stadium, where he won his sixth trophy as a Real Madrid player.
“This was a trophy I wanted because I haven’t won it yet,” Ronaldo said.
“I was nervous, but I managed to work well with the team and I am pleased. I am happy because I scored these two goals and I want to thank Sir Alex for handing me the man of the match trophy. I have to say that my team ages helped me, but I am happy to score twice.”
