London, Nov 10 : Foreign birds are driving ace Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo wild again after team's training ground was invaded by Canadian geese.
The fowl keep dive-bombing Ronaldo and team-mates including Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs as they practiced, The Sun reported.
The birds have achieved something that no footballer would ever dare to try - interrupting one of Sir Alex Ferguson's training sessions.
"The geese have been returning for the past couple of years and can dive better than Cristiano!" a club insider revealed.
The Reds have spent 10million pound on the Carrington training HQ, set in remote Cheshire countryside.
"Carrington was chosen by Fergie for its privacy and security, but one of the drawbacks of being out in the sticks is the wildlife."
Facilities manager Clive Snell admitted: "There is a nature reserve within the boundaries and we've got two lagoons on site as part of our water treatment system. The reed beds attract the geese, who have been flying in and laying their eggs."
Ronaldo has previously had his feathers ruffled by kiss-and-tell stories involving European beauties. He and team-mates including Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez donned smart suits and ties for a Unicef charity gala at Old Trafford last night.
