It seems that the relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Van Nistelrooy wasn’t that good. That’s what was recently revealed by Alex Ferguson’s friend Alastair Campbell in his last book.
The author mentioned: “In 2006, I’ve met Alex Ferguson and he was extremely upset because of a conflict between Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud Van Nistelroy. He didn’t mention the true reason but it seems that it’s about Cristiano Ronaldo’s father”.
He added: “It seems that the issue was really serious that Ferguson decided to sell Van Nistelrooy to Real Madrid at that time”.
After that, Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009. Van Nistelrooy stayed for only 6 months before moving to Hamburg.
