Cristiano has a message for the Manchester United fans – Here’s it
Cristiano Ronaldo has visited the Old Trafford pitch to reacquaint with his old stomping ground.
The Newcastle United defence are set to be the first charged with containing Ronaldo
since his shock return to England, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid.
Manchester United’s home ground was the stage that transformed Ronaldo from greasy-haired teenager to world superstar
However, it will welcome him back on Sunday afternoon with a rush of memories.
The 36-year-old has already paid his footballing spiritual home a visit
donning his new United No 7 shirt to take a walk down the tunnel and onto that special grass.
United posted a video of the moment on Twitter, simply writing: ‘He’s home.’
Ronaldo looked around the 76,000-seater in wonder before spreading his arms wide as he soaked-up the ground he’ll have rocking by kick-off on Sunday.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been in training working alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of his second debut
arriving to Carrington on Wednesday for his second session in his £170,000 Lamborghini.
Newcastle will be quaking at the prospect of facing the Portuguese phenom as
despite being in the latter years of his career, fired 36 goals last season.
Ronaldo‘s former team-mate Wayne Rooney, who struck-up a ruthless partnership with the forward back in his first United stint
has revealed his thoughts on the shock transfer.
‘His mentality will rub off on the younger players, especially, so I think it’s a great signing,’ he said.
‘I think United are finally ready to go and challenge for the title, and I really feel they have to, this year
‘Cristiano’s going to be a very big player, I think he’s going to have big moments in the season and I’m sure he’ll score a lot of goals.’
