'I Want To Win It For My Father'

'I Want To Win It For My Father'

Cristiano Ronaldo has laughed off rumours he is set to walk out on Manchester United.

The Portugal winger will not be joining Juventus in the summer.

Ronaldo: 'United have stood by me and been there for me and I want to repay that. They were also the only club that showed 100% commitment towards me. They brought me to England and tried to make me a better player and they have worked hard.

'There is nobody else who could make me what I am now and I am really thankful. I will repay the faith.

'Obviously it has been really hard to take since my father died. Psychologically it was very tough and you are bound to take it onto the pitch whether you like it or not.

'I know he won't be there on Sunday and that will be tough to take. But he will be with me in my heart. I will think about him and I would like to win it for him.'
