Cristiano Ronaldo would not be better off if he left the English club for Real Madrid, Manchester United assistant coach Carlos Queiroz has said.
“I already worked at Real Madrid so for this reason I know the club well. He wouldn’t find better conditions there than those which he already has,” he told reporters in Lisbon.
“Besides, he is part of the Manchester United family and he can become one of the club’s symbols,” added Queiroz who coached Real Madrid in 2003.
Ronaldo has been the subject of much speculation regarding his future, with Spanish media convinced he will be heading to eitehr Real or rivals Barcelona at the end of the season.
Ronaldo, whose current contract ties him to Old Trafford until 2010, has admitted in the past that he would like to leave England for Spain.
