Scolari: Ronaldo suits Barca

05 Feb 2007 - 08:20:41

Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has urged Cristiano Ronaldo to quit Manchester United and head for Barcelona to continue his football education.

Ronaldo, 22, has been in sensational form his season and scored his 15th goal of the campaign in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Tottenham.

The Portugal international has been linked with a big-money move to Spain with Barcelona or Real Madrid in the summer, and a switch to the former would be ideal as far as Scolari is concerned.

"The basic education stage of his career is ending and I know Cristiano is ready for a change of atmosphere," Scolari told The Sun.

"Barcelona would hugely enjoy having Cristiano in their team because he would complement Ronaldinho perfectly - they have different characteristics.

"For Cristiano, the Barcelona climate would be important - most days are sunny and it's hardly ever cold like England.

"That gives a player all the motivation he needs to train and play."
