Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has no qualms about Cristiano Ronaldo spending time in Los Angeles as he recovers from his recent ankle operation.
The Manchester United manager revealed the club have sent an employee to accompany the Portuguese winger.
“He was always scheduled to have this time off in Los Angeles. There was no harm in going there,” said Ferguson.
“He’s doing some commercial things. I think he’s signed up with an LA-based company. I’ve someone there with him.”
Ferguson dismissed as “a load of rubbish” reports Ronaldo has been drinking and partying excessively during his rehabilitation.
