I watched the Ronaldo drama from Spain. The coverage was strikingly different. The Spanish papers said Alex Ferguson was miserable and the United board had sold Ronaldo against his wishes. The Daily Mail reported the tight-lipped Scot was glad to see the back of the posturing Portuguese and went on to smear Ronaldo as a girlie-man. I wonder which was right. My own experience with United suggests the club is used to dealing with tame journalists.
