Jose Semedo: Ronaldo will end up back in England


Cristiano Ronaldo’s former Sporting Lisbon team mate Jose Semedo believes the Real Madrid star will eventually end up back in England before his playing days are up.

The pair played together in Portugal before Semedo left for Charlton Athletic in 2007 told radio station TalkSport that his compatriot loves the English fans and the style of football in the Premier League.

The now-Sheffield Wednesday man revealed the pair are still close and have spoken about a potential return to the Premier League.

Semedo stated: “He is very happy at Real Madrid [but] he loves English football, he loves English people, and deep down I think he will come back to England because it doesn’t look like he wants to finish his career without getting back to England.

“He said he would wish Real Madrid is in England, but that is not possible. I believe he will end his career in English football again.”

Ronaldo has never kept a secret of his love of Manchester United and talks suggests he would be tempted to move back to Old Trafford once he decides his tim at the Santiago Bernabeu is over.

The striker has netted 12 goals so far this season and recently became the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.
