Hull: We Don't Want Ronaldo

Hull City have stunned the football world by revealing they will not be signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United this summer…

Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford hangs in the balance, as Real Madrid continue their pursuit of the Portuguese superstar. United are determined to hold onto the 23-year-old but the relationship between player and club appears to be disintegrating by the day.

Dialogue between the two clubs is similarly tense, as the Red Devils are upset at los Blancos’ forthright approach; conversely, the Spanish giants have accused their English counterparts of holding Ronaldo against his will.

Such fractious exchanges between all parties concerned could see the proposed mega-move collapse altogether, meaning the PFA Player of the Year could find himself on the fringes at United after effectively cutting his ties with Sir Alex Ferguson.

But Hull will not be swooping in to offer Ronaldo an escape route, insisting they will be much better off without any self-absorbed primadonnas rocking the boat.

“I would much rather have [39-year-old striker] Dean Windass in my team than Cristiano Ronaldo,” Hull chairman Paul Duffen said in The Sun. “Dean is utterly focused and loyal to his club, with the best interests of his football club at heart.

“It is obvious Ronaldo regards himself as a gun for hire. I would question how much he gives back to his club and how much he is helping to lay a foundation for a future generation of footballers there.”


Such a statement might seem laughable from a club that only this year earned their first-ever promotion to the top flight. Indeed, the Tigers would likely go bankrupt if they attempted to pay Ronaldo’s wages for a year, let alone stump up the ₤70million transfer fee.

Expenses aside, some might consider it ludicrous that the Humberside outfit would turn down the opportunity to add one of the world’s best footballers to their squad as they attempt to extend their stay in the Premier League.

But Duffen insisted the presence of a player like Ronaldo would only serve to upset the model that helped Hull achieve promotion in the first place.

“Last season we had a capable team of players and a good manager,” he continued. “But the trick was that we got them all pulling in the same direction. They play for each other every time they cross the line.

“We will rely on the passion of the players and fans and dedication of the manager getting us where we want to go — not the size of somebody’s chequebook.”
