Manchester United supporters have had a strong like for Cristiano Ronaldo ever since the Portuguese made his debut against Bolton Wanderers in a three sizes shirt. Since then, Ronaldo has not only grown up a bit, but also transformed himself into one of the most feared footballers on the planet.
Ronaldo has five Champions League trophies to his name, one of those Man United, mean that the former Real Madrid here is the undisputed king of this competition and after the Group stage results, it has been confirmed that he will return to Old Trafford for one more stint, but this time in a different shirt. His new club Juventus, have been drawn against the Red Devils along with Valencia and Young Boys.
The visit to Old Trafford sets up a great reunion for 5-time Ballon d’Or winner with his old club and of course his old boss, Jose Mourinho. The two countrymen shared a fractious relationship during their time together at Real Madrid which did not really end well for the now United boss.
Ronaldo has only played against Manchester United a handful of times, first was when Sporting Lisbon faced United in the Champions League. He played in such a fabulous way this days that the Red Devils defenders told Sir Alex Ferguson he had to sign the Portuguese youngster.
Ten years ago, Ronaldo returned to Manchester United with Real Madrid to haunt them. After a 1-1 draw at the first leg, both teams returned to Manchester to battle it out. Sergio Ramos’ own goal put the Red Devils ahead but Luka Modric and Ronaldo’s goal break United hearts.Sir
Next up for Manchester United, they will once again have to come up against the freak of nature that they helped created with Juventus.
