Mourinho is special, he has won a lot: Brazil’s Ronaldo

Mourinho is under pressure after United started the English Premier League season with one win and two defeats. They lost 0-3 at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday which made matters worse.

I dont know whats happening in Manchester, but wait before criticising Mou — hes special and hes won a lot, he told Italys La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Asked about Uniteds chances in the Champions League where United have been drawn against Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys, Ronaldo said (Juventus) are a really strong side. Theyve reached the final twice recently and (Cristiano) Ronaldo is going to strengthen them, but the Champions League is not easy. Signing (Cristiano) Ronaldo doesnt automatically mean you win it.

What you cannot deny is that its a huge signing — unthinkable — but nobody can predict what will happen and how the balance will change. I wish him all the best. He will see what a beautiful country hes arrived in, and I love Italy. Hes going to enjoy a great adventure.

Former Brazil star Ronaldo, who turned out for Inter Milan 68 times and scored 49 goals, added that he is delighted to see them back in the Champions League this season, although picking Real to win a fourth straight title.

They are always in my heart, even if Ive followed them little recently and not spoken any more with (former owner Massimo) Moratti, said the 41-year-old.

Theyre back in the Champions League and thats a great result, and they are back among the best, which is where they belong.

Im very attached to Real, more so than Barcelona. Real were strong even before (Cristiano) Ronaldo came and they will remain so after. They are still the favourites to win the Champions League. Theyve won four of the last five, although its going to be a whole different challenge without (Cristiano) Ronaldo.
