first_img Ronaldo became a cult hero at United after enjoying six successful years under Sir Alex Ferguson. The Portuguese winger moved to Real Madrid for £80million in 2009, but he still remembers his time at Old Trafford fondly. Press Association Although he says he is happy at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo appears open to the possibility of going back to United in the future. When asked about the possibility of playing for United again, Ronaldo told MUTV: “I love Manchester and you never know in football. Of course I’m happy at Real Madrid; it’s my home, it’s my club, but United treated me unbelievably, so you never know. “I am still in contact with some people there because I had a good relationship with everybody – it was like my second family.” Under Ferguson, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and one Champions League trophy before departing for Real Madrid for a then world-record fee. United were well below-par under Ferguson’s successor David Moyes, who led the team to seventh last season – their worst-ever finish in the Premier League era. However, Ronaldo thinks United are now destined for success under their new manager Louis van Gaal. “I think Van Gaal is going to do a fantastic job,” Ronaldo said in the interview, which was broadcast on the eve of United’s friendly against Real Madrid in Ann Arbor, near Detroit. “He’s an experienced manager and I think he’s going to do well for United. “It will be a better season, for sure. I hope United come back like people know they can; they are always so strong and I’m looking forward to seeing them this year.” center_img Cristiano Ronaldo admits he could one day make a sensational return to Manchester United.last_img read more

Paul Lambert insists Aston Villa will not become embroiled in another relegation struggle if they carry on playing the way they are. Villa are five points above the Barclays Premier League drop zone heading into the home game with Sunderland on Sunday and are the lowest scorers in the division with 11 goals from 18 games. They drew another blank on Boxing Day when losing 1-0 to Swansea but Lambert felt his side deserved at least a point at the Liberty Stadium and believes 13th placed Villa are on the right track to climb the table. Lambert’s two previous seasons in charge at Villa Park have seen the club finish too close to the relegation zone for comfort – five points on each occasion – but the Scot feels they “will be fine” when they start accepting their chances in front of goal. “If we keep doing what we are doing and take the chances then we will win more games than not,” Lambert said. “There will be so many twists and turns throughout the season, but if we keep doing what we’ve been doing we will be fine. “There are good players like Joe Cole still to come back and if we get everybody fit then we will certainly, the way we are playing, be a match for teams.” Christian Benteke has managed two goals in his last five games since returning from injury and suspension but Villa have still struggled to score in an eight-match sequence which has brought only two defeats. They have scored more than once on only two occasions all season and top scorers Andreas Weimann and Gabriel Agbonlahor – who misses the Sunderland game after collecting a fifth booking of the season at Swansea – have a meagre three goals apiece. Sunderland are one point and one place worse off than Villa following their 3-1 home defeat to Hull on Boxing Day and Lambert accepts that the two clubs cannot rely on tradition to remain in the top flight. “History tells you in years gone by you have to earn the right to stay in the league regardless how big your name is or how big the club is,” Lambert said. “Take out that top six big clubs and everybody fights like anything to stay in the league. “Sunderland for some reason have been down there for the past few years but it doesn’t matter how big the club is, it’s earning the right to stay in it. “They say get 40 points and see what happens. We have got 20 and last year it took us until January time to get 20, so that’s an improvement.” Meanwhile, Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has hit out at the Christmas fixture schedule as he attempts to rally his troops after a Boxing Day defeat. The Black Cats headed into Friday’s clash with Hull at the Stadium of Light riding the crest of a wave after their 1-0 derby victory at Newcastle, but succumbed in tepid fashion – despite taking a first-minute lead – to lose 3-1 to a side which had not won in 10 Barclays Premier League fixtures. A stunned Poyet later admitted his team had simply not been good enough, but as he turned his attention to Sunday’s trip to Villa, admitted he could not quite understand why he was having to do so. The Uruguayan said: “One of the good things is that we play again in two days. That’s the only good thing about playing today (Friday). “We shouldn’t be playing on the 28th. I’ve been in England for a long time and I know that Boxing Day games are a tradition and I accept that and think we should maintain it. “But I think that then playing on the 28th is a disgrace. We shouldn’t be playing then, we shouldn’t. “If you want to see the best players performing well, you need to make sure you are not playing every two days. “It is not needed. That is not tradition and anyone who says it is is not telling the truth.” Poyet will welcome back striker Connor Wickham back from a one-match ban, although he was quick to dismiss any suggestion that the 21-year-old’s absence against Hull had been a factor. He said: “I don’t think that was the case. If so and he plays on Sunday, then we will win?” Press Association read more

first_imgTT Court permits CAL employees to join unionThe Industrial Court on Wednesday issued a ruling enabling employees of Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL), to join the Contractors and General Workers (CGWU).The ruling, handed down by Industrial Court president Deborah Thomas-Felix, means that CGWU will be recognized by CAL as a majority union –   as the union has received the recognition of the court.Previously represented BWIA workersThe union previously represented workers of the now defunct British West Indian Airways (BWIA) which was shut down and replaced by CAL in December 2006. The union will now be able to accept new members from CAL as well as former BWIA employees who claim outstanding benefits.The union filed the action in the Industrial Court to recoup employment benefits former BWIA workers lost when the airline was restructured.Some of them were rehired by CAL but have since retired.In her ruling, Thomas-Felix rejected CAL’s evidence that CGWU could not be recognized as there was no collective agreement in place when the company was shut down.CAL is BWIA’s legal successorThomas-Felix said according to industrial relations legislation, CAL was BWIA’s legal successor.She also said some elements of the previous collective bargaining agreement with BWIA would carry on to CAL as both companies were essentially the same.“Despite insubstantial changes such as uniforms and paint on the aircraft, they are the same business. CAL has retained several unique features of BWIA including it flight codes and its Caribbean Beat in-flight magazine,” Thomas-Felix said.However, CAL intends to appeal the court’s ruling and an application for a stay of the decision will be held on Monday.More on Caribbean Airlines: Caribbean Airlines is Hero CPL official carrierlast_img read more
