Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney left out Cristiano Ronaldo from the list of his best colleagues during his career.
Wayne Rooney won 16 trophies, including five Premier League titles and one Champions League with Manchester United after joining the club in 2004.
He played alongside club legends like Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, he picked an unexpected name as his best colleague and Ronaldo was left out.
“My best team-mate, I’d say Darren Fletcher,” Rooney told Rob Burrow in his podcast Seven. “There were a few – John O’Shea, Wes Brown, Michael Carrick – we were all really close. But Fletch was probably the one. We sat next to each other in the dressing room. and shared really good moments on and off the pitch together.”
Rooney also picked former Manchester United winger Nani as the worst team-mate of his Manchester United career.
“On the pitch, the toughest one was Nani. He was frustrating to play with.”
In an interview in 2019, Rooney also named Paul Scholes instead of Ronaldo as the best player he ever played with.
Ronaldo, who recently was appointed as Birmingham manager, has to prepare his team for the game against Sunderland in the Championship.
