“I get it. You know, with Cristiano, people think ‘Oh that’s a brave gesture, that’s for the fans’. He’s just a passionate person, he wants to win, he really wants it and he can’t help it. continued Ferdinand.
“If that means he has to go up there and stand next to the manager, shouting instructions and stuff, so be it. When the one who does that is such an influential person in the game, how can you argue with him?”
