Gabriel Heinze has distanced himself from quotes hitting out Sir Alex Ferguson's Cristiano Ronaldo theory.

Former Red Devil never hit out at United boss

Gabriel Heinze has distanced himself from quotes hitting out at Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's Cristiano Ronaldo theory. Ferguson previously stated Real only signed Heinze in order to help smooth over their move for United's prized asset Ronaldo a year later. The Argentine defender reportedly hit out at Ferguson's theory, stating nothing could have been further from the truth and calling his idea 'absolute fiction'. However, Heinze says he never responded to the Scottish tactician's quotes and has distanced himself from those attributed to him earlier in the week. "Real Madrid defender Gabriel Heinze has denied that he made any of the declarations that have appeared in some of the English media," read a statement on Real's official website. "Heinze wants to make it clear that at no point has he made any statement to those media who made these supposed declarations of his."
