    Ronaldo - "Real Madrid shut Fergie's mouth for me." ... LOL!

    Former Brazil striker Ronaldo said Real Madrid's 2-1 Champions League win over Manchester United on Tuesday served to shut Alex Ferguson's mouth, after the United boss called him 'fat' in the build-up to the game.

    Speaking at a publicity event at currently half-built World Cup venue Arena Pernambuco, Ronaldo said that the remarks from Ferguson, 71, had been disrespectful and unexpected from someone with so much experience in the game.

    "Real Madrid shut his mouth for me," Ronaldo said, in comments reported in AS. "It was a lack of respect. A professional of his age, an English Sir, should not be so disrespectful. It was not classy."

    Ronaldo said he did not want to get into any further debate on the subject, but he would be keeping an eye out for United's results from now on.

    "I have no words for this gentleman, except that I hope the team he manages always loses," he added.

    Classic!
