So United get there replacement for Ronaldo one Antonio Valencia but will he do the job needed?it wont be a easy task that’s for sure.His lack of English may be a concern, although the main doubt of most United fans is a goalscoring return of just seven in 83 appearances for Wigan and four in 34 for his country.few would expect Valencia alone to match Ronaldo phenomenal form, better will be expected from a player who spent a short time as a team-mate of former United star Diego Forlan at Villarreal.
Even Steve Bruce quoted “Antonio is a diamond of a kid. A real top, top boy,It is unfair for anyone to make comparisons with Ronaldo. For anyone having to endure that it would be struggle” For me he is the complete player. He is prepared to track back and do the leg work. He is big and powerful and let me tell you he is a real tough cookie.
Nobody will knock Antonio off the ball. He’s very hard. He has got terrific strength and certainly not a shrinking violet.
How many wingers can you say that about? Valencia will certainly have to up his goal-scoring game if he is going to make inroads into helping to make up for the loss of Ronaldo’s output. “He will never be a Cristiano Ronaldo and scoring is the one area he really does have to improve. new Sunderland manager Bruce
As for Ronaldo will he do well at Madrid thats the key question? Well you could write a book on what he has done to help united.
2007- 2008 he wrapped up the campaign with a career-high 42 goals in all competitions. 2008- 2009 finished with 53 appearances in all competitions, which was four higher than the previous year, but scored sixteen fewer goals (26) than his career-best total of 42 from the previous season.
Individual honours: FIFA World Player of the Year; Ballon d’Or (both 2008); European Golden Shoe; Barclays Golden Boot (both 2007-08); PFA Players’ Player of the Year; Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year (both 2006-07 and 2007-08).
Team honours: Champions League (2007-08); Premier League (2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09); FA Cup (2003-04); League Cup (2005-06 and 2008-09); World Club Cup (2008); Community Shield (2007 and 2008).
So Valencia has allot to live up to but you never know under alex anything can happen as the manager always has big impact on any player just look what he did for ronaldo.As for ronaldo can be be world player of the year again? and get 20 goals+ each season ?spainsh football is slower we would not put it past him.

Bloomberg Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United to join Real Madrid
June 21, 2009
Cristiano Ronaldo has gone public and let everyone know why the move has not happend so smooth.He told the News of the World: “Anything that has not been right with the move is my fault and nothing to do with Real Madrid or Manchester United.
“I opened my mouth and that is what caused the problems between the two clubs who both acted in the correct way. Yes, I would have handled things differently and not been so public.”
When asked if a move had been agreed a year ago, he replied: “No, not that I know of. Any agreements that the clubs had were private.
“I expressed a desire to join Madrid and the two clubs reached an agreement. This transfer is no different from any other.”
But ronaldo did go on and say he has much respect for united and Sir alex and what both team and manager has done for him.
He said: “I have said many times that it is the relationship a son has with a father. He respects me and I respect him and when one of us is talking, the other one listens.
“It is not a one-sided relationship. We both hear each other out and that is why we have got on so well.
“He taught me everything about football and I have never met a man who is so passionate about the game after so many years.
“He instilled that passion into me and he made me a winner. The most important thing he taught me is that second place is not an option.
“He also taught me lots of things in order to make me a better person and people might not understand how much time he invests in players off the pitch. But he really does and he cares about each and every one of us.
Sir Alex has shown so much confidence in me and for that I owe him everything. When I arrived – even though I did not want it – he insisted I have number seven on my shirt.
“I was very adamant that I did not want it. Then, he sat me down and told me about the history of the number seven and said … do you understand what I am trying to say to you? I think you will be worthy of wearing this shirt.
“When I think of the greats who have worn that United shirt, I understood how much confidence he had in me. And I hope now that I am another Manchester United great who wore the most famous shirt at the club.”
