‘Tragic’: Manchester United’s ‘expectation’ for Cristiano Ronaldo was ‘huge’

Scottish actor Brian Cox says Cristiano Ronaldo’s “disappointment” with Manchester United can’t be taken away because it is not the same club he played for over a decade ago.

“It’s tragic for him but it’s also tragic for the club,” he told Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan.

“And I think the club has to be given a break on this I mean I do think its clearly hard because his expectation must have been huge and especially if Alex persuaded him to go back – that must’ve been a huge thing.”
