Sir Alex Ferguson the manager of the English football club Manchester United, took him to the club in 2003. Now Cristiano Ronaldo is playing for the Spanish club Real Madrid.
Speaking as a Man Utd fan, no. Ryan Giggs is the man. He came to United from the Manchester City youth team and has been a red devil ever since. He has matured and matured on a world class level and he's been loyal to manager and fans alike - a true legend.
Unfortunately not. Ronaldo had quality before he went to Old Trafford however Ferguson and the Team at Manchester United. I feel he would have become a world class player at a top club. If Ferguson had done a better job he would stay on his feet for longer and in that way i'm glad he's gone from the premiership.
The best disciple of Sir Alex Ferguson has to be Paul Scholes. A red through and through and a player you wouldn't even consider leaving Manchester United.
what about Giggs, Beckham, Cantona, all these players was discovered by Ferguson these were the best not Ronaldo
Cantona was not discovered by Alex Ferguson Modysoccernews- he helped Leeds to win the title prior to moving to Old Trafford!
Great question. I think Ronaldo had too much natural talent for Ferg to deserve a significant amount of credit.
I think that the kids he brought up through the youth system at the same time have to be his best disciples. Giggs, Scholes, Beckham and a whole host of players that were sold on to other clubs are the reasons that Man Utd are such a huge team now.
No, Christiano Ronaldo is not even a disciple of Fergie. Ronaldo was already a work in progress before he got to Manchester United; unlike players like Scholes, Giggs, the Neville brothers, and David Beckham to name a few. Alex Ferguson just polished Christiano's rough edges to near perfection, that's what I believe anyway.
I think that Ronaldo was one of the best players Sir Alex ever had the chance to work with. It's very hard to rank the best players as they have so many different attributes (you all know the Messi/Ronaldo debate).
Every once in a while, a "fairytale" transfer occurs and turns in to something really good. This happened with Ronaldo, but it wasn't all thanks to Sir Alex, he was already a rising star. I've even heard that Barcelona were after him when he played in Sporting...
To me, it has to be David Beckham and Wayne Rooney. Remember how hot headed these guys use to be. Sir Alex made them true professionals and calm headed. Not to forget how great footballers they are. A great manager will take raw talent and stray energy and direct them in the right direction.
Unfortunately Wayne Rooney came through the Everton Youth System (He burst onto the scene with the nickname 'Roonaldo')
You could argue that Ferguson has helped to shape his game however Rooney certainly could not be considered as Fergusons best disciple. Especially considering Rooney's disciplinary record and temperament.
If it a disciple and the title suggests, then it has to be Gary Neville, a fact that infuriates opposing fans. If it's the best player over the longest period of time, then it's Giggsy & Scholsey in a tie. If it's the biggest impact on the club, then it's Cantona. If it's the biggest driving force, then there's only one Keano.
Potentially Rooney could eclipse them all but will have to judge that over time.
