Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo told to ‘do himself a favour’ and RETIRE from football by Antonio Cassano


CRISTIANO RONALDO has been told to RETIRE from football by former Italy and Real Madrid striker Antonio Cassano.

The Manchester United ace has started just one Premier league match this season since trying to force his way out of Old Trafford during the summer.

Cassano, 40, believes the bench is where Ronaldo will stay unless he calls time on his illustrious career.

Speaking to Cabine Desportiva, he said: “At this point, Cristiano should do himself a favour and understand that if you don’t reach a certain level, you should close the shop.

“He won everything, he was a phenomenon. Stop! You have to stop or you’ll only run into the bench.”

Ronaldo, 37, got off the mark for the season by scoring a penalty away to FC Sheriff in the Europa League prior to the international break.

That is his only goal in eight outings for United this term – with his only Prem start coming in the 4-0 defeat to Brentford.

He also failed to score in two appearances for his country during this international break, particularly facing criticism for missing a host of chances in Portugal’s 1-0 defeat to Spain.

This led to Ronaldo’s sister Katia slamming the country’s “ungrateful” fans.

While Ronaldo sported a black eye during the match.


Cassano has been a regular critic of Ronaldo in recent years.

During CR7’s stint at Juventus Cassano blasted him for selfishly “only thinking about his goals and records”.

He then ranted that Ronaldo is not even in the top five players in history, also claiming that he should thank Karim Benzema for his success at Real Madrid.
