Ole And Man United Beg Ronaldo To Snub Man City As Deal Move Closer

Ole And Man United Beg Ronaldo To Snub Man City As Deal Move Closer

Ole Solskjaer who is the manager of Premier League side Manchester United has urged Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo to respect loyalty by not moving to Manchester City.

There have been speculation over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner already linked with a move to the reigning Premier League champions.

Ronaldo has been playing for Juventus for the past three seasons and the Portuguese is yet to win the Champions League title for the Old Lady.

Last season under Pirlo, Juventus reached the last 16 of the prestigious competition in Europe, but they were knocked out by Porto in what was a painful exit for Cristiano Ronaldo.

During Juventus’ first game of the season, Cristiano Ronaldo asked to be put on the bench against Udinese.

According to the report on GMS, Ole Solskjaer explained that it will be unfair for Cristiano Ronaldo to join Manchester United’s rivals in the Premier League.

This is because Cristiano Ronaldo actually made his name at Manchester United under Alex Ferguson who gave the chance to soar.

Ole Solskjaer’s reaction

“When I played for Man Utd, if a rival club tried to sign me, and I had gone, well where’s the loyalty? “Loyalty is one of the values I really, really put highly. I wouldn’t expect any player who has played for a club for 10 years to want to go to their local rivals.

“It’s not for me. I know we’re professionals, but when you play for Man Utd you don’t go to Man City. We’ve had examples of that and I didn’t really agree with it.”

Cristiano Ronaldo could become the latest footballer to play for both Manchester United and Manchester City if he completes a two-year move to Etihad Stadium this summer.

The 36-year-old has been linked with a move away from Juventus despite having about 10 months left on his current deal with them.

He was said to have asked to be left on the bench in their Serie A opener against Udinese – a game that ended 2-2 after his late minute header was ruled out for offside.

The Citizens are however hoping they can land the Portugal international as an alternative for Harry Kane who has decided to remain at Tottenham this season.

Ralf Rangnick Set To Become Manchester United Caretaker Coach

Ralf Rangnick is close to finalising a deal to become Manchester United interim manager until the end of the season.

Discussions are ongoing over a deal that would also see Rangnick remain at the club for two years beyond the end of the season in a consultancy role.

Ralf Rangnick, 63, is one of the most respected names in German football and is currently manager of sports and development for Lokomotiv Moscow.

United remain in talks with the Russian club over an agreement to release him.

As it stands, Michael Carrick is still expected to be in charge for Sunday’s Premier League game at Chelsea, live on Sky Sports.

Carrick has been placed in temporary charge while United conduct a thorough process to appoint an interim boss following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week.

Former Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde and former Lyon head coach Rudi Garcia had also been considered for the interim role.

United are planning to make a permanent appointment at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is their first choice, with Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag also in their thinking.

Ronaldinho Faces Jail Again!

Ronaldinho faces jail again!

Former Barcelona and AC Milan star Ronaldinho has been warned he could be hauled back to jail over a maintenance payment dispute with a former girlfriend.

Reports in Brazil say the 41-year-old has been ordered to settle his debt with Priscilla Coelho by December 1 to avoid the seizure of his assets and possible prison.

Priscilla’s lawyer Bruno Medrado told Brazilian newspaper Extra: ‘Right now he has to pay up.’

Officials are said to have handed Ronaldinho a court summons so he could be formally notified about the maintenance payment deadline on November 11 after several failed attempts to track him down.

The former footballer, arrested and imprisoned in Paraguay last year after flying into the country with a fake passport, is currently believed to be in Dubai.

In May 2018 Ronaldinho was forced to deny claims he was marrying Priscilla and another woman, named as Beatriz Sousa, at the same time.

He spoke out after a Brazilian newspaper said he would tie the knot with the stunning pair at a private ceremony at the upmarket Barra da Tijuca district in Rio de Janeiro where he owns a home.

Coelho is understood to have been awarded around £13,500 in maintenance a month after arbitration as the Brazil legend's 'common-law wife'

The two-time World Player of the Year said at the time: ‘It’s a huge lie. Everyone’s talking about this but it’s not true. I’m not going to get married.’

Around a year later it emerged Priscilla, said to have started dating Ronaldinho when he played for Belo Horizonte club Atletico Mineiro, was demanding money from her multi-millionaire ex.

She is understood to have been awarded around £13,500 in maintenance a month following arbitration as the retired player’s former ‘common-law wife’ in a provisional decision which can be appealed while the first payments are made.

Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto de Assis Moreira flew back to Brazil at the end of August last year after a forced stay of nearly six months in Paraguay.

Their return to Brazil came 24 hours after they were told they would not be put on trial over a fake passport scandal when their lawyer struck a deal with state prosecutors which was rubber-stamped by a judge.

Roberto was freed with a criminal record after pleading guilty to using a false document and being given a suspended prison sentence.

The siblings were ordered to pay around £153,000 in compensation, with Ronaldinho having to pay £68,000 of the total and his brother the rest.

Ronaldinho and his brother were arrested on March 6 last year after entering Paraguay to launch an online casino and a book with doctored passports falsely showing they were naturalised Paraguayan citizens. The passports had been issued to two women before being modified.

The former footballer spent his 40th birthday in prison before he and his brother were allowed to move to the four-star Palmaroga Hotel in the Paraguayan capital as part of a house arrest deal.

His net worth has been estimated at more than £67million thanks to his career earnings and a number of high brand paying endorsement deals.

He was pictured enjoying an emotional reunion with former Barcelona team-mate Samuel Eto’o at the weekend at an event in Qatar.

Malawi 'Begs' Mike Tyson To Be Its Cannabis Ambassador

Malawi’s agriculture ministry has written to former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to be the ambassador for the country’s cannabis.

Minister Lobin Lowe said the legalisation of cannabis last year in Malawi had created opportunities locally and internationally.

The ministry said the United States Cannabis Association was facilitating the deal with Tyson.

“Malawi may not go it alone as the industry is complex requiring collaboration. I would therefore like to appoint you, Mr Mike Tyson, as Malawi’s Cannabis Branch ambassador,” Mr Lowe wrote.
