London, Jan 15: Manchester United player Ronaldo has requested his coach Ferguson not to rest him so that he can continue in the same rich vein of form.
Mercurial striker who is in terrific form has now scored a
stunning 22 goals in 25 games this reason. He scored his first
hat-trick in Red devils 6-0 victory over Newcastle. "I'm enjoying
staying here in Manchester. There isn't much sun at the moment, but
it's not a problem. The weather is not the most important thing."I
had a great season in 2007 and played really well. I scored a lot
of goals, made a few goals and it was a wonderful season for
"But this season I'm at the same level. I've scored quite a few goals, played at a good level and the important thing is to keep going like that. I want to learn more and play more.
"I want to score as many goals as I can. I have many opportunities to score because my team-mates make good passes and because there are so many games, not just the Premier League but Champions League and FA Cup."
The comments do bring up the issue of squad rotation again, and also highlight the slight difference between the way Ferguson and Rafa Benitez look at it. While both have made changes, Fergie has tended to let the form players go into the next game, while Rafa usually rotates players irrespective of results.
