Ronaldo Dedicates MOTM Award To Ferguson

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has dedicated his Man of the Match award to his former coach, Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson was part of UEFA’s Technical Committee and named Ronaldo Man of the Match after the Portuguese’s brace helped him to win the UEFA Super Cup for the first time in his career.

"I am happy because I scored these two goals and I want to thank Sir Alex for handing me the man of the match trophy," Ronaldo said after the game.

"He helped me a lot when I was just 18 in Manchester and I want to say I respect him and thank him so much for everything he did in my career.

"This was a trophy I wanted because I haven't won it yet. I was nervous, but I managed to work well with the team and I am pleased."

Ferguson, who signed Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon for £12 million in 2002 and sold him to Madrid for £80m, said the decision to give Ronaldo the award was not a difficult one.

"Normally in a cup final it is difficult to choose a man of the match but Cristiano made it easy for me," Ferguson explained.
