Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster completely understands the position of Sir Alex Ferguson over his desire to hold onto Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I am well aware that if I were in his situation I would do the same," said Schuster. "For a player of this kind, not I nor anyone would like to lose him, even if we had won the league and the Champions League.
"He's a player no coach would like to lose. The way the coach of Manchester defends him strikes me as phenomenal."
