Gerard Pique praises Cristiano Ronaldo

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says that Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo helped him when he first moved to Manchester United.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed that Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo helped him when the centre-back first moved to Manchester United.

The two players are rivals in La Liga, but Pique has insisted that he 'likes' the Portuguese from their time together in Manchester.

"If I always speak well about Cristiano it's because I like him. People can draw their own conclusions from the gestures and comments, but they don't know. I must add that he's changed a bit recently," Pique told Marca.

"He helped me a lot when I joined United."

Pique played for United between 2004 and 2008, while Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford from 2003.
