'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ronaldo Defends Himself And Vucinic

Cristiano Ronaldo denied press reports that he had ever said Roma players had begged for mercy.

The Portuguese winger, one of the stars of the show on that April night when United battered Roma into submission, asked everyone to read his book before writing nonsense about it.

"Read my book and you will see on page 112 exactly what happened," he stressed.

"A Roma player did ask me to stop dribbling, but obviously he was joking just like some English players do when they ask me to switch to the other side of the pitch.

I did not read a single footballer's autobiography and I won't change this habit so I choose to believe what he says. And he's got some courteous words for the defeated (again) opponent.

"Roma played well and had some good chances and we aren`t the side we were in April. But we are improving and we will be better at the Olimpico in December."

More likely that we will settle the matter of qualification by that time and will send out a shadow team that gets beat easily. No problem with that though.

He also defended Mirko Vucinic whose elbow hit him in the face during Tuesday's Champions League game, saying that the Montenegro player hadn't intended to do any harm.

"It wasn`t an intentional foul. It was just one of those things that happen during a game.

"I don`t like black eyes, but Vucinic didn`t do it on purpose and these things happen in football."

You only dont like Ronaldo because he is better than anything you have got or are you one of those England world cup gimps who blamed him for Rooney being sent off when it was Rooney himself who was to blame!
