I miss playing with Rooney

Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he could play alongside "pitbull" Wayne Rooney once again.The three-time Ballon d'Or winner left Rooney and Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid back in 2009 - but says that he loved lining up alongside the England striker.

Rooney, who is yet to find the net in the Premier League this season, has been backed to rediscover his scoring touch by his pal.

Ronaldo revealed that he had a unique nickname for his team-mate, whose power on the pitch stunned the 30-year-old.

And the Portuguese superstar revealed: “I miss playing with Rooney. Maybe we will play together again one day.”

Ronaldo, speaking in a new BBC documentary about Rooney, as quoted by The Sun, said: “He was the kid of England, everyone loved him.
“He was so powerful I was calling him Pitbull. The power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength and he never stops.
“He’s a fantastic team player and he scores! He’s a fantastic boy and he helped me a lot when he came to join us in Manchester.”
