    I am a slave, says Ronaldo as he pushes for Madrid moveDaniel Taylor The Guardian, Friday July 11, 2008

    Cristiano Ronaldo's desire to join Real Madrid appeared stronger than ever last night after a television interview in which he reiterated he had not changed his mind about wanting to leave Manchester United and agreed with the Fifa president Sepp Blatter's criticism about the way the European Cup winners had handled the situation. Blatter had urged United to allow the player to leave and, more controversially, complained that there was "too much modern slavery" in the sport.

    Blatter, an honorary member of Real Madrid with close ties to the club's president, Ramón Calderón, had described himself as "very much in sympathy" with Ronaldo and urged United to allow him to leave, suggesting it was otherwise tantamount to slavery. "I agree with what he said," said Ronaldo, when that last point was put to him. "It's true. I agree with what the president of Fifa said. I know what I want and what I would like. We have to see what happens. I do not know where I will begin next season."

    Ronaldo was subsequently asked whether that meant he still wanted to move to Madrid. "At the moment I can't say any more," he replied. "But you know what I said [at the end of Euro 2008] and what I want." He was asked when it would be sorted out. "I hope very soon."

    Blatter's comments had been widely condemned, with United saying there were "taken aback" by his choice of words and the Professional Footballers' Association calling for a retraction. Ronaldo, who earns more than £100,000 a week on a contract signed last year, seemed oblivious to the reaction at Old Trafford. "What the president of Fifa said is correct," he said when pressed further. "He is right."

    Speaking to the Portuguese television station TVI, Ronaldo was asked to clarify whether he had agreed terms with Madrid. "It's not true," he said. "There is not an agreement." His interviewer then wanted to know why he and Ferguson had not spoken this summer. "I don't want to say anything," he responded.

    Although Ronaldo strategically stopped short of directly stating he wanted to leave Old Trafford, there were several instances when he was asked to clarify his position and chose against saying anything positive about the club. He also did not express any regret about the impact for United of Ferguson's assistant, Carlos Queiroz, becoming Portugal's new manager. "Carlos is a great coach - he showed it many times in Manchester and before that in Portugal. I think he would be a great option for the national team." Ronaldo had been due to report for pre-season training on Monday but it emerged he had been given permission to remain in Portugal while he recuperates from surgery on his right ankle. The player was on crutches and revealed he might be out for "10 to 12 weeks."

    Saga la Ronaldo linanifikirisha kitu flani kichwani na pengine kinaweza jadiliwa na sisi wadau wa soka humu ndani...

    1. Kitu gani ''kikuu'' kinamshawishi Ronaldo kuondoka Manutd?

    2. Kitu gani ''kikuu'' alichokikosa Manutd kinampeleka Madrid?

    3. Ligi gani bora Duniani kati ya La Liga, Premeirship, Seria A na Bundesliga?


    Am sick with this Dude..let him goooooooooooooo!!, kwanza ''mtetezi'' wake Quiroz kashaondoka, sidhani kama kutakuwa na mtu wa kumbeba anymore!!

    Kwangu mi naona sababu ni
    1.Jamaa ameshashinda kila kitu akiwa ManU .FA Cup,Carling,Premier League,Champs League,Top Scorer,PFA player of year sasa anataka changamoto mpya na anahisi hawezi kurudia tena

    2.Ushauri kutoka kwa baadhi ya watu baada ya baba yake kufariki.Scolari baada ya kujua anatua Blues akaona bora amwambie dogo aondoke ili asije kumuaibisha

    3.Madrid wanataka kufanikiwa kibiashara na sasa mchezaji amabaye anauzika ni Ronaldo ndio maana Calderon anasema watamnunua kwa bei yoyote ile

    Kama wataleta hela hela ya kutosha atauzwa tu

    PELE has blasted FIFA president Sepp Blatter for labelling Cristiano Ronaldo a 'slave'.

    Blatter insists the Portuguese ace should be allowed to break his contract and join Real Madrid against Manchester United's wishes.

    Unsurprisingly, Ronaldo was delighted to hear the comments from the head of world football as he battles to engineer a move to Spain.

    But Pele, arguably the game's greatest player of all time, believes Blatter's view is wide of the mark.

    The Brazilian legend said: "You are a slave if you work without a contract or you don’t get paid.

    "If you have a contract then in any job you have to finish the contract.

    "I think that when Ronaldo finishes his contract, then he should be free to go wherever he wants to."

    England World Cup hero Gordon Banks also believes Ronaldo should remain loyal to United.

    He said: “Ronaldo should respect his manager and honour his contract.
    “I don’t understand what the problem is. He plays for a team that has just won the European Cup and the Premier League.

    "He plays for his country. What more does he want?

    “It’s like anything in life. If a businessman signs a contract then he has to honour it. It’ s no different than a professional footballer."

    Pele ni mfalme wa kandanda duniani lna ni kipenzi cha wapenda soka wengi duniani lakini hapo amekosea. Kuna timu nyingi huwa zinawatema wachezaji wao kabla hata ya kumaliza mikataba yao kwa kuwauza kwenda timu ambazo hawazitaki pamoja na kuwa wangependelea kubaki walipo au kwenda timu tofauti, hivyo kwa maoni yangu kuna umuhimu mkubwa kuwapa uhuru wachezaji na wao wawe huru kuamua kuvunja mikataba hiyo wakati wowote ule bila kushinikizwa vinginevyo.

    Madrid is the club with the best history.
    Kweli ameshinda yote aliyotaka kushinda akiwa Manu. Kitu ambacho nilikuwa nasema a few weeks ago, kwamba yeye kuwa topscorer kwa magoli 40ushee msimu uliopita, hawezi akarudia. Ukiangalia historia yake, this was his best season. Young man doesnt have the heart to challenge himself at Manu anymore.
    Let him go, let him get paid.
    Kutumia neno 'slave' ni kutukana watu wenye historia ya 'utumwa'. Ange-describe ishu yake kama 'holocaust', basi ingekuwa ishu kwa Jews. Lakini kujiita slave ni ujinga. Sepp Blatter naye hypocrite mkubwa, lakini ana ishu na ligi ya uingereza na waingereza in general. Anazeeka vibaya huyo mzee.

    Let the guy go.

    Mbona unapokea mshahara wako kama mlivyokubaliana
    Huyu BLATTER nafikiri AMESHACHOKA awaachie vijana hiyo nafasi
    Issue kama hii imewahi kutokea kwa wachezaji wengi mfano MAKELELE,ATHUMAN IDD na wengine wengi mbona alikaa kimya

    Nini maana ya mkataba? Mi nadhani kama ni kosa ni lake mwenyewe!!!!! Nilicho na uhakika nacho ni kwamba kwa kuvunja mkataba kuna so n so kinachotakiwa na hicho ndicho anachokikwepa na kutaka huruma za wanafiki wakina Blatter

    ALEX FERGUSON has taken a thinly veiled swipe at Cristiano Ronaldo by hitting out at the lack of loyalty in the modern game. ​


    Is this the admission that Ronaldo will dump United?

    Blatter denies comparing Ronaldo to a 'slave'

    FIFA president Sepp Blatter insists he did not compare Cristiano Ronaldo's situation at Manchester United to that of a slave. With Ronaldo's future the subject of intense speculation all summer as Real Madrid continue to court the Portugal international, Blatter expressed his 'sympathy' for the player.

    However, the controversial figurehead this week said on a visit to Vietnam: 'I have never said that Ronaldo is a slave.


    'But I said slavery with young people. European clubs are trying to get 13, 14 and 15-year-old boys and bring them to the big clubs. 'I have never mentioned that for Ronaldo. But the press, they have distorted it. 'Ronaldo is not a slave.'
    At the time, Blatter said: 'I think in football there is too much modern slavery, transferring players or buying players here and there, and putting them somewhere. And we are trying now to intervene in such cases.' However, he now appears to have changed his mind again. 'They (Real Madrid and Manchester United) will solve this problem. 'We have nothing to say, FIFA is not going to intervene, let it be as it is now.'
