Former Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo believes Jose Mourinho’s appointment is good for the club, stating that the Red Devils lacked identity after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
The 31-year-old who spent six-years at Old Trafford before joining Real Madrid, where he was coached by Mourinho, is optimistic the Portuguese can bring back the glory days.
In an exclusive TV interview on La Sexta’s ‘Jugones’ TV show Ronaldo said: “He’s already signed, hasn’t he? I think it’s good. If it’s something United wanted I think it’s good.
“I hope Manchester United get back to being what they were because it’s an impressive club but in recent years they lacked an identity a bit.
“And it hurts me seeing United like that because it’s a club I carry in my heart.
“I wish Mourinho can restore them back to the top.”
The 31-year-old however admitted that he had problems with Mourinho during his time at the Spanish club, but insisted he has let bygones be bygones as he holds no grudge against the Special One.
“Without any problems I would embrace him. One of my great qualities is to not hold grudges at anyone regardless of the damage they may have done to me.
“I’m not saying he did, I’m saying in general. There were some problems like in life, like you have problems with your wife,” he added.
