80 million reasons to say adios.

Whether you love him or hate him, you’ll certainly miss Ronaldo at Manchester United next season.
His skill is beyond doubt and he’s a true entertainer.

He decided that red wasn't really his colour.

He decided that red wasn't really his colour.

Unfortunately he has the other side to his game that means he wants to win at any cost. And that led to him getting a reputation for diving and trying to win free kicks and penalties.
His free kick style was terrifying, if it worked. He has the same sort of technique as Juninho, in that they both place the valve of the ball towards them and strike through the valve. This technique has been compared to the chaos theory as it relies on several things occurring before it works. If you contrast it with Beckham’s style there’s a huge gulf. But both styles seem to lead to goals, and that’s what it’s all about.
See some of his spectacular contributions to last season’s Manchester United trophy haul here.

And then there’s how the world’s press announced his departure. Most media outlets announced it as the biggest news in the world. Ever.
Or alternatively there’s the way the Los Angeles Times decided to announce it.

I can’t wait to see who’ll turn up to fill his boots.
