Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he missed playing alongside former Manchester United attacker Wayne Rooney and has not ruled out reuniting with the Englishman. The duo spent five years together, winning both domestic and continental trophies under Sir Alex Fergusen.

Last summer both players made a switch. While Ronaldo transferred from Real Madrid to Juventus, Rooney opted to ply his trade in the United States.

In an interview with Goalhanger, Ronaldo said: “For me the power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength”. “He never stops, he always runs, helps the team. He’s a fantastic team player and he scores goals.

“He scored important goals, for me he’s fantastic. He was the kid of England. Everyone loved him. He is a fantastic boy, fantastic player.

“I used to call him, between me and my mates, the pit bull. I remember when he lost the ball he was so powerful, a strong guy, he shoots unbelievable.

“He scored many goals, what can me say? I miss playing with him. The future, nobody knows. Maybe we’ll play one day together again.”

Meanwhile the former Manchester United and Everton player has found the net 12 times in 20 appearance for DC united during his short spell at the MLS, while Ronaldo has netted seven times in 13 outing with the Old Lady.
