The actor, who claimed to be a big fan of the footballer, advised him to ignore all those that are distracting and disrespecting him, saying they are doing so because they are jealous of his achievements.  

He went on to assure the Portuguese international that he will be supporting whatever club he goes to after the World Cup, if he decides to leave Old Trafford.
