It was the perfect afternoon for United and Ronaldo. After collecting three points, he witnessed the return of one of the best players the Red Devils have ever celebrated.
Speaking to BBC Sport at the end of the match, the Portuguese icon admitted that he was proud of his return and that he did not expect such a start.
“Unbelievable, I didn’t expect to score two goals,”. “I expect only one but it was unbelievable welcome by the crowd they give me support all the time. I belong to this club and I will help the team to achieve everything great things. I am looking forward.”
