FIFA tells ManU Real Madrid can tap RonaldoJune 12th, 2008 - 5:02 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 12 (ANI): Manchester United is reeling after FIFA said that they wouldnt stop Real Madrid from tapping up ace striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
As the winger inspired Portugal to a win over the Czech Republic, a senior FIFA official said: Uniteds chances of getting Real punished are zero.
The Red Devils have already made an official complaint, hoping world soccers governing body will stop the Spaniards’ bid to lure Ronaldo from Old Trafford.
The SunSport on Wednesday published pictures of a Real Madrid official meeting Ronaldo in Rome.
But the Spaniards insisted that no one could prove they have tapped up Ronaldo - and FIFA agree, despite Uniteds protests.
A member of FIFA’s executive committee told SunSport: I think everyone knows that these things go on in football but proving any wrongdoing is next to impossible.
Real are very powerful and I don’t think theyll be too worried about Uniteds claims, the ofiicial added.
Ex-United winger Gordon Hill reckoned that Ronaldo has taken the mickey out of boss Alex Ferguson.
Hill said: It looks like theres been something cooking for months. What pees me off is that meanwhile they grab the shirt and they grab the badge. That takes the mickey. (ANI)
