In an interview with Marca, Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi was asked about the performance of former La Liga opponent Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned to Manchester United last summer. La Pulga praised the speed of adaptation of the five-time Ballon d’Or for its return to England (9 goals and 2 assists in 13 TCC matches), despite some difficulties in the Premier League.
“United are a very strong team with great players. Cristiano already knew the club, but it was at a different stage and now he has adapted in an impressive way. From the start he scored goals as usual and had no problems adjusting. In the Premier League, he’s not as good as we all thought, but it’s a very difficult and very balanced competition in which things go round in circles. After December, things change a lot and anything can happen ”, he explained to the Spanish daily.
