Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has ruthlessly mocked Cristiano Ronaldo by claiming he only wants to sign players “that run” as the Portugal legend prepares to find a new club following his departure from Manchester United. The 37-year-old has now left Old Trafford following the mutual termination of his contract with Newcastle and Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr among the clubs linked with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

The brutal comment was met with laughter from Lineker, Alan Shearer and Didier Drogba inside the BBC studio at half-time of France’s clash with Australia.
