Cristiano Ronaldo marked his Old Trafford homecoming with two important goals as Newcastle visit to Old Trafford resulted in a 4-1 win for the Reds.
The Portuguese superstar has already proved critics wrong, who thought the 36-year-old was too old to do it in the Premier League. They’d gain valuable insight following a chat with some of the Newcastle defenders who had the almighty task of keeping Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood at bay this afternoon.
It was wonderful to see him score on his second debut for the club, particularly when you see the boost his return has given the club, with more belief than in previous campaigns.
Should the five-time Ballon D’Or continue scoring at this rate, like he has done throughout his career, we’ll stand a good chance at competing for the Premier League title. There will be tougher opponents than Newcastle in the coming weeks, but you can only beat the team put out in front of you.
He took to Instagram after the match to write a message to the fans, which read: “My return to Old Trafford was a brief reminder of why this stadium is known as the Theater of Dreams. For me, it has always been a magical place where you can achieve everything you set your mind into.
“Along with all my teammates and with the amazing support that we always get from the stands, we face the road ahead with confidence and optimism that we’ll all be celebrating together in the end.
“Proud to be back at Man. United and playing in the Premier League once again, but above all, happy to help the team!
“Let’s go Devils!”
