Cristiano Ronaldo: The right time to return to Manchester United
Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has finally given his first interview with the club since his recent arrival.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer moved quickly to sign the Portuguese prodigy after it became clear he was available and ready to leave Juventus.
Nobody really expected Ronaldo to try to leave Italy, and most of him was left to speculate.
However, Juventus have reappointed Max Allegri, the same man who has brought them many titles.
It makes sense that the all-rounder would want to stay where he is and try to make his former team win in Serie A, rather than playing regularly at Old Trafford.
According to the club’s official website, Ronaldo said, “Well, as you know, I have a fantastic history with this great club. I was there when I was 18 years old and of course I am very happy to be home after 12 years. So I’m really excited and can’t wait to start my first match.
“As everyone knows, Sir Alex Ferguson has been key since I signed for Manchester United when I was 18 years old. I remember when we played Manchester when I was at Sporting Lisbon.
“Sir Alex Ferguson is like the father of football to me. He helped me a lot, taught me a lot and I think he played a big role because of the relationship we have, we keep in touch, and he is one of the great people.
“I really like him, and he was the most important key for me to be in the position I signed at Manchester United.
“I think this is the best decision I have made. That’s right, I think.
“I’ve now moved from Juventus to Manchester, it’s a new chapter, I’m very happy and happy, and I want to continue again, make history, try to help Manchester get good results, win trophies and be number one, to win big. Things.
In a conversation with Solskjaer, he said: “Well, we spoke, but of course I will have time to speak to him personally to find out what he expects.
“As you know, I played with him at Manchester United for two or three years, so I had a good relationship with him, but now in a different role, I am a player, and he is a coach.
“But it doesn’t matter, my relationship with him is good and as I said before, I’m here in Manchester to help the team get their results and the coach can count on me for whatever he wants. So I’m available for it all.
“Well, fans are the key to football. Now, with all the stadiums full of fans, it’s not the same as last year, this empty stadium.
“The fans, they are the key, and I’m very happy. Manchester United fans, they are special, I know I remember it well.
“I know they are still singing my music which makes me happier, and my duty is to give everything on the pitch like I always do, like I do all the time, and try to give everything I have to help the team score goals, provide assists, win. Match and hope to see it soon.”
The last MP covered the news about Ronaldo when reports suggested his arrival could see Paul Pogba renew his contract.
The French talent’s current contract expires next summer, and the Red Devils are working hard to get him.
Pogba seems hesitant to sign a new contract, and it looks like he has won his time and is waiting to see which way the club will go this season.
Fans will be drooling at the prospect of a world-class pair playing together on the same pitch.
