So, apparently, Ronaldo cannot be substituted any more. We were 2-0 up with half an hour to go against an insipid, lifeless, uninspiring City team (just the usual) yet he threw a right little tantrum after being hauled off by Fergie, chucking his training top on the ground and still shaking his head long after the substitution.
Sir Alex, quite reasonably, stated that Ronaldo simply wanted to play which is a good thing but he had to look at the bigger picture. Which is true and it's a shame Ronaldo seem to be unable to look at that. He'll certainly start at Wigan and against Arsenal so there will be very little rest for him in the next two games.
It's understandable that he wanted to carry on: he was sent off against the massive club twice, one goal might have seemed insufficient to pay them back. He had a good game, he was enjoying playing and all but really, with two vital league games and then a small matter of a Champions League final coming up, we can't afford an injury to Cristiano Ronaldo. And I very much hope that after calming down, possibly by tomorrow, he'll see it that way. Because, frankly, the way he threw his toys out of the pram today was pathetic...
However, at least we can clearly see that he IS bothered, that he cares about playing, the burning desire that made him so good in the first place hasn't gone away.
