DC United Manager Wayne Rooney defends Cristiano Ronaldo’s legacy as a Manchester United hero despite the way his second stint ended. Rooney, a former Manchester United player himself, acknowledged Ronaldo’s contribution to the club’s success, saying, “I think what he’s done for Manchester United is great. He’s won Premier League titles, won the Champions League, scored many goals.” Rooney also expressed his disappointment with the way things ended for Ronaldo, but insisted that it doesn’t take anything away from his legacy at the club. Despite the differences that arose between Ronaldo and manager Erik ten Hag, Rooney does not hold any animosity towards the Portuguese star, as evidenced by his recent comments to CNN. Ronaldo left Manchester United for a massive contract with Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia, where he continues to play at a high level, scoring nine goals this season. Despite Ronaldo’s departure, Manchester United continues to perform well under the leadership of ten Hag, currently sitting comfortably in the top four of the Premier League and having recently won the Carabao Cup. Rooney, who is now the head coach of DC United, remains optimistic about the future of his team in the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference, despite having only gained four points in five games.
