Posted by Keano! on May 28, 2009

Rio Ferdinand has wasted no time in telling the media of United’s success already this season and that the team and club will bounce back stronger then ever after their 2-0 defeat to Barcelona in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.

Ferdinand who admitted he should have done better for Barcelona’s insurance second goal has jumped to the defence of the team who has an impressive haul after a great season.

Ronaldo Teams Up With SkySports

Posted by Keano! on May 17, 2009

Ronaldo is often criticised by many but you had to smile at his antics yesterday in the dressing room after United claimed their 18th league title.

The winger decided to be on the other end of the interview and sought out Andersons thoughts on the game in a very professional styled interview.

The Portuguese managed to keep a straight face throughout and finished in true interviewee style saying, “This is SkySports”

Watch the video of the interview below, and I’ll bet John O’Shea was desperate to soak the two in victory bubbly…
