Manchester United supporters had left like a twirling winger. They found it like a formidable surface fox. But the magic has not gone away. Cristiano Ronaldo did not miss his reunion with OId Trafford. This Saturday, CR7 was the center of attention for his comeback to Manchester United, twelve years after his departure for Real Madrid.
As the story has always been beautiful between the Portuguese and MU, it is inevitably him who turned on the light. Facing Newcastle for the fifth day of the Premier League, Ronaldo opened the scoring just before the break. Clearly not the most beautiful of his career but certainly one of the most acclaimed.
After a shot from Mason Greenwood, off-center right at the entrance to the penalty area, the ball, repelled by Magpies goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman, landed in the feet of the Portuguese star. The number 7 has no trouble pushing the ball into the net and scoring his 85th Premier League goal with the Red Devils. Rebelote shortly after the hour mark, this time with a more aesthetic goal on a shift from Luke Shaw, to arm a left strike.
The first double in his second life at MU. “I think he will score more than 20 goals in the Premier League. It’s started well,” ex-partner Mikael Silvestre commented on RMC Sport2.
