Messi Admits Being 'Impressed' By Ronaldo

Lionel Messi has said some kind things about longstanding rival Cristiano Ronaldo's start to life at Manchester United, despite the team's performances having resulted in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking.

Ronaldo Accused Of Messing Up Solskjaer's Plans

The Argentine has provided a short assessment of the way the former Real Madrid talisman has performed since returning to the Red Devils in August.

Despite United having struggled this season, particularly domestically, Messi has noted that his ex-LaLiga rival has had no problems adapting to life back in England with his usual goalscoring form.

"United is a very strong team with great players. Cristiano already knew the club, but it's in another stage and now he has adapted in an impressive way," Messi told Marca.

"From the beginning, he has scored goals as always and had no problems adapting.

"In the Premier League it is not as good as we all thought, but it is a very difficult and even competition in which things take a lot of turns.

"After December it changes a lot and anything can happen."

Ronaldo has scored nine goals in 13 appearances since his big return to the 20-time English champions, and will be in action this evening when United take on Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League.

Here are nine managers strongly linked with the United job:
