Speaking to The Sun, Wayne Rooney said: “I’d say there’s probably not a footballer on the planet who isn’t jealous of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“The career he’s had, the trophies he’s won, the money he’s earned… his six pack!
“Every player bar Lionel Messi is jealous of Cristiano.”
Rooney was responding to an Instagram comment from Ronaldo who jokingly called the Englishman and Jamie Carragher ‘jealous’ after they questioned his impact at Old Trafford.
The 37-year-old will reportedly remain at Manchester United beyond the 2021/22 campaign even if the Red Devils fail to secure a top 4 finish and qualify for the Champions League.
