The Portuguese star got off to a good start in his first game in a Red Devils jersey when he beat Newcastle twice
Cristiano Ronaldo says returning to Manchester United is the ‘best decision’ he has made.
The Portuguese star had a dream return to Old Trafford when he scored twice during his second debut for the Red Devils when they beat Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.
Ronaldo, 36, was signed at the end of the transfer window at Juventus when United joined in to ensure he did not end up with rivals Manchester City, which he intended.
What was said?
The former Real Madrid star says things have gone well and he hopes to help United get silverware.
“This is the best decision I have made. It was the right time,” Ronaldo said in an interview with Telefoot.
“I want to make history, help Manchester achieve excellent results and win trophies.”
Varane is happy to reunite with Ronaldo
Ronaldo’s return to United has reunited him with former Madrid team-mate Raphael Varane, who has also moved to the club in the summer window.
The pair spent seven years together at the Santiago Bernabeu before Ronaldo left to join Juventus and the center-back is delighted to be by his side again.
“Playing with the best is a great pleasure. Cristiano is a great professional, physically he is always at his best, he always has the finishing quality,” Varane said.
“What he will bring to this team is his will to win, his winning mentality.”
What next for Ronaldo and Man Utd?
United are now focusing their attention on the Champions League as they prepare to tackle the Swiss team in the first game of the group stage against Young Boys on Tuesday.
The men of Ole Gunnar Solskjær then have a double header against West Ham, who only faced David Moyes’ team in the Premier League on 19 September before welcoming them to Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup three days later. has.
