Ronaldo posts emotional tribute to Ole Solskjaer

CRISTIANO RONALDO labelled Ole Gunnar Solskjaer an “outstanding human being” in an emotional tribute to the sacked Manchester United manager.

The reports that the Norwegian was axed on Sunday morning following the Red Devils’ 4-1 defeat at Watford.

And 24 hours later, superstar forward Ronaldo took to social media with a classy message for his former team-mate and boss.

He shared two pictures – one recent from this season and another throwback to their time together in Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad.

Ronaldo wrote: “He’s been my striker when I first came to Old Trafford and he’s been my coach since I came back to Manchester United.

“But most of all, Ole is an outstanding human being.

“I wish him the best in whatever his life has reserved for him.

“Good luck, my friend! You deserve it!”

Ronaldo and his United team-mates failed to produce the performances on the pitch this season – ultimately leading to his dismissal.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner returned with much fanfare from Juventus in the summer – coming back to Old Trafford after 12 years away.

But despite a dream start and some late Champions League goals to get Solskjaer out of trouble, he has underperformed in the Premier League of late.
