Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed that he would like to play again alongside his former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney.
Ronaldo spent six seasons at Old Trafford along with England legend Rooney before the Portuguese star’s move to Real Madrid in 2009.
The pair won three Premier League titles, two EFL Cups, the FA Cup and Champions League before Ronaldo departure.
Rooney moved to his boyhood club Everton in the summer of 2017 but after just one season, the United legend joined Major League Soccer side DC United.
Ronaldo has also left La Liga giants in the summer for Italian champions Juventus for a £100m deal.
And now Ronaldo told Goalhanger that he misses playing in the same team with Rooney.
“For me, the power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength,” he told Goalhanger.
“He never stops, he always runs, helps the team. He’s a fantastic team player and he scores goals.”
“He scored important goals, for me he’s fantastic. He was the kid of England. Everyone loved him. He is a fantastic boy, fantastic player.”
“I used to call him, between me and my mates, the pit bull. I remember when he lost the ball he was so powerful, a strong guy, he shoots unbelievable.”
“He scored many goals, what can I say? I miss playing with him. The future, nobody knows. Maybe we’ll play one day together again.”
Having joined the MLS in June 2018, Rooney has scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for DC United so far, while Ronaldo has seven goals in 13 appearances for Juventus.
