He said: ‘I don’t think there’s not a football player on earth who isn’t jealous of Cristiano Ronaldo, his career, trophies he’s won, the money he’s earned.
‘His fit body with the six-pack,’ he added with a smile.
‘I believe that every player other than Lionel Messi is jealous of Cristiano.’
Ronaldo has scored 18 goals for Manchester United since his return last summer.
However, he has been heavily criticised by some fans and pundits.
