UCL: Paul Merson makes U-turn over comment on Cristiano Ronaldo
The Portugal captain has now scored nine goals in 11 appearances since returning to Man United from Juventus in the summer transfer window.
But Merson has made a U-turn, insisting that he is ‘lost for words’ watching Ronaldo continue to perform exceptionally well for Man United at the age of 36.
“It has got to be one of the best finishes of all-time; it’s just out of absolutely nothing,” Merson was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“It is absolutely phenomenal and his first goal was brilliant as well.
“I was one of the big critics. I was one who was not sure about him coming back. But if you give him chances, he will score goals. Thirty-six or 46, it doesn’t make any difference, he will finish.
“If you took away his two goals tonight, he’s two out of 10. But his two goals are phenomenal and I am lost for words.”
