Varane finally speaks about reunited with Ronaldo at Man Utd
Raphael Varane is excited for his reunion with former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United
The defender made his debut after a £34million move from Real Madrid in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Wolves.
He set up Mason Greenwood’s late winner after United rode their luck against the hosts.
Varane played with Ronaldo in Madrid and, with the forward on the verge of a return from Juventus 12 years after leaving Old Trafford, is eager to be reunited.
He said: “I am very happy. He’s a legend and all players can learn when you play with him.”
“It’s a great help for all players, for all young players, and of course he never stops scoring goals so he will help the team.”
“I was very, very happy to be here and to help the team get this victory.”
“The feeling is absolutely amazing,” he told the club website.
“The Premier League is very intense. The game it’s very fast and you know when you play this game, you are very concentrated and it’s very intense. I came here for that feeling.”
“The atmosphere is fantastic and the game is very fast.”
“You have a lot of action during the game. You have to be focused because it never stops.”
“It’s attack, attack, counter-attack and it’s very fast.”
