Lampard: United need Messi to replace Ronaldo

Friday, August 21, 2009

Frank Lampard claims that Lionel Messi is "the only player" capable of filling the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

The Red Devils sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80 million this summer.

And Lampard believes Sir Alex Ferguson will find it impossible to replace the Portuguese.

Speaking at the FA Tesco Skills One Million Memories Celebration at ­Wembley, Chelsea star Lampard said: "It is very difficult to replace Ronaldo.

"I heard Alex Ferguson say that himself and I don't think he will look to replace him.

"He will look to make the team strong as a whole by not having him. That is the only thing they can do.

"The amount of times I flicked on the telly and saw Ronaldo had scored and they had won one or two-nil.

"Messi is probably the only player you could replace Ronaldo with."
