Some sense spoken at last..


Pele insists Cristiano Ronaldo should forget about moving to Real Madrid and honour his Manchester United contract.

The Brazil legend also dismissed Fifa president Sepp Blatter's claim that there is "modern slavery" in football and Ronaldo should be free to move.

Pele, in Stoke for a charity match for the Gordon Banks Foundation, said: "You are a slave if you work without a contract or you don't get paid.

"If you have a contract then in any job you have to finish the contract."

Pele added: "I think that when he finishes his contract, then he should be free to go wherever he wants to go."

Ronaldo has four years left on his Old Trafford contract and is currently recovering from ankle surgery which will rule him out of the start of next season.

Former England goalkeeper Banks accused Cristiano Ronaldo of showing a lack of respect to Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Banks said he could not understand why Ronaldo, who scored 42 goals for United last season, would want to move away from Old Trafford to Real Madrid.

He said: "I can't understand why he said he felt he was being treated like a slave. If he has just signed a new contract then he should respect his manager and honour it. It's stupid.

"I don't understand what the problem is. He plays for a team that has just won the European Cup and the Premier League. He plays for his country. What more does he want?
"It's like anything in life. If a businessman signs a contract then he has to honour it. It' s no different than a professional footballer."

Banks was speaking at a press conference ahead of a charity match in his honour on Saturday when a Banks XI will take on a Pele XI at Stoke's Britannia Stadium.

The former England keeper pulled off arguably the best save in history from a Pele header at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

They should honestly make Pele top man of football bodies...because unlike Platini and **** company he is sensible.

I'll take Ronaldo to Asia and show him what real slaves are...those footballs he loves to do his faggot tricks on are made by basically child slaves...make him dowhat they do and he'll know real slavery...piece of sh1t

After such a successful season and considering the wages he is getting , his attitude and comments really baffle me.
He must be very unhappy with the club, or maybe its the weather.

He's a trattor and a coward. He is up his own arse and I say let him go. What's the point in keeping him there if he doesn't want to be there???? I mean, is it just me or can any one see a point in this. If he stays it isn't like his heart will be in it so what's the point????

totally agree m8. if a player doesnt wana play for the club then he should leave. the fans will be on his back next season and if he doesnt produce the goods then his value will drop. if he wants to go he should hand in a trasnfer request..
