Manchester United fullback Brandon Williams has rejected claims Cristiano Ronaldo is bad for morale inside the club.
Williams says Ronaldo has always been popular with the players.
Speaking to The Sportsman, Williams said: “I wasn’t there when he first came back, but since I’ve come back, he’s been a massive influence.”
One of the rumours that began circulating claimed a Ronaldo-led Portuguese-speaking faction was breaking out at the club – but Williams doesn’t agree.
“He always talks to me. He makes sure that he doesn’t leave anybody out. He just talks to everybody.
“With a club of this size, a lot of stories come out.
“So the stories that come out when United don’t lose, the papers need stories to bring out to make the league interesting because it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
