Cristiano Ronaldo was quick to send a heartfelt message to the Man United supporters after his second debut.
Man United welcomed home a legend today. The Old Trafford club sealed the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, with the GOAT scoring twice on his second debut vs Newcastle today.
From minute one, you could see the aura, the belief rubbing off on his teammates. There was genuine excitement in and around the stadium all afternoon. Twelve years after leaving, it felt like he’d never been away.
His first goal was a tap-in, though he was in the right place at the right time and Ronaldo deserves credit for that. The second? A lovely finish after some excellent work from Luke Shaw.
From that point forward, United looked in complete control, sealing the 4-1 victory in injury time courtesy of Jesse Lingard.
After the game, Ronaldo would take to Instagram to send an emotional message to the fans.
Check out Ronnie’s Instagram post here:
The words from our number 7 are just beautiful. I genuinely believe he knows how much he’s loved here, while he’s super appreciative of the support and admiration.
He should be proud to be back at Old Trafford, at this time and with this squad. With Ronaldo at the forefront, why can we not dream of going all the way?
Ronaldo may be 36 but it looks like he’d never been away. The pace was still there, while the experience he now brings to the table means he’s arguably more well-rounded than he’s ever been.
Thanks for the memories of today, Ronnie. Thanks for the kind words in the aftermath. It really is wonderful to have you back home.
