Cristiano Ronaldo Denies Making 'Finished' Comment After Manchester United Win
| Last updated
Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved that he's far from finished, but the Manchester United forward didn't say as much, despite what people initially thought.
Not many players have come out of United's season with their reputation enhanced, with the team needing to win their final two matches just to match their worst points tally in the Premier League history.
Even Ronaldo has had his detractors at times, despite the fact he's easily the team's top scorer, and Mark Goldbridge recently explained why the 37-year-old isn't the problem at the club in an epic rant.
On Monday night, the former Juventus striker put in a brilliant performance, as United won their final home game of the season 3-0, with Anthony Elanga so certain his teammate he would score his penalty that the Swedish forward started celebrating early.
After the match, the players took part in a 'lap of appreciation,' as they thanked the fans for their support during a terrible season, despite some being outside Old Trafford protesting.
At the end of his walk around the pitch, Ronaldo looked into the camera and said something, which fans first believed to be "I'm not finished."

This post-match moment with the cameras has gone viral!
37 yo. 18 league goals. Finished? We're not so sure.

If that was supposed to be a dig at those who think he should retire, the opinion of one pundit not all that long ago, then it seems it wasn't even the case.
Ronaldo himself, or whoever it is who runs his social media, took to Instagram to deny that he didn't say "I'm not finished," replying to someone's post about the claim.
That took fans back to the drawing board to try and work out exactly what it was Real Madrid's all time top goalscorer actually said to the camera.
They went back to social media to say that he told the camera, or more specifically the person controlling it, 'come on finish,' in a jokey way.
The camera had followed Ronaldo all the way round the lap and it's possible that he had just had enough of it being pointed at him for so long.
I think Cristiano Ronaldo was saying "Come on finish" (In a jokey way) to the cameraman here because they had the camera right in his face for so long on the lap of appreciation. NOT the "I'm not finished" everybody is saying. pic.twitter.com/XwBAgzNCba— BeanymanSports (@BeanymanSports) May 3, 2022

Its so funny to see people claiming that Ronaldo said "im not finished" when he actually meant common finish to the camera man filming him up close 😭— Eibar Honesty (@HonestPESSIAN) May 3, 2022
So now we don't actually know if Ronaldo thinks he's finished or not then...
