The problem with ronaldo is that it's hard to discern whether
it's for real or whether he's exaggerating anymore, BUT he
loves to play, so I don't think he would have stopped if he
still could have played on.

He was moving around quite sprightly for someone who was injured
though :rolleyes:

Hope fully he's only injured as badly as Edwin van der Sar was in the
match against Chelsea. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

To be quite honest though, i think he probably wanted to get to the
showers earlier, so he could hit the clubs earlier or get to his date
earlier. ;)

......
Clutching his side after a heavy collision with the Sunderland midfielder Andy Reid, the newly-crowned European Footballer of the Year kicked the ball into touch, signalled his discomfort to the bench and the disappeared up the players' tunnel while a bemused Sir Alex Ferguson, serving the second of a two-match touchline ban, frantically telephoned his assistants to arrange a substitution.

Fortunately for Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic's winning goal one minute into stoppage time turned one point into three for United. But Ronaldo's disappearing act still overshadowed the Serbian's goal.

Ferguson said: "Cristiano had a kick on the hip. Wayne Rooney had something similar last season and it can be very painful. We'll see how he is on Monday morning, but we have Aalborg on Wednesday and Spurs at the weekend, so we will freshen it up.

"There was no need for him to come to the bench, though. The best thing is to get treatment straightaway. It was the sensible thing to do."

Whether Ferguson would have been so forgiving had Vidic not scored is open to debate, but the visitors would have stolen a point had they claimed a draw. Still, they at least showed the spirit that will be needed if they are to avoid relegation.

Chritiano Ronaldo was last seen running down the tunnel holding his side , with brown stained shorts, shouting ....." gangway.....where's the bog roll".

BCC Sports reporters are quoted as saying ..." something's not right here, we think it smells to be honest".

The FA have said that " although it looked a bit dirty, there was no foul on the pitch, they are not going to investigate further" and that " as far as we are concerned the door was closed".
