Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he was nervous about what the outcome of his performance would be on his second debut for Manchester United.
The talisman, who is aiming to ‘write history’ at Manchester United after said his return to the Premier League side was the best decision. Ronaldo made the perfect return to Old Trafford with two goals in a 4-1 win over Newcastle.
His return to United was a sensational one that the Red Devils completed in the final days of the summer transfer window as they stole in front of rivals Manchester City to recruit the 36-year-old from Juventus.
Ronaldo quickly resettled into the site and made a goal-scoring return to Old Trafford on Saturday with a brace to help United to a 4-1 win over Newcastle United.
The match was heading to a draw before the five-time Ballon d’Or winner opened the scoring on the cusp of half-time. He turned in from four yards after Magpies goalkeeper Freddie Woodman spilt the ball into his path.
Surprisingly, Newcastle restored parity through Javier Manquillo. But it wasn’t long before Ronaldo reinstated the lead with a fine finish through Woodman’s legs.
Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard then rounded up the day with a thumping finish from a distance and a fine finish instigated by Paul Pogba.
The raucous crowd gave Ronaldo an excellent comeback. Reflecting on his performance after the match, he told TeleFoot that It was the best decision he made.
“It was the right moment: I want to write history, help Manchester United have great results and win trophies.”
“It is unbelievable. When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear.
“It is normally because I did not expect that they would sing my name all game. I was very nervous but maybe I didn’t show but I was. The reception is incredible but I am here to win games and help the team,” he told BBC Sport.
