Club’s statement on Ronaldo’s return

The club wrote: “Cristiano met with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, his former team-mate, in the manager’s office before being introduced to the players who are currently hard at work in training.

“The spectacular signing from Juventus joined the session with his colleagues and wasted no time in getting acquainted with the group.

“With challenges to come at home and abroad in the near future, including Saturday’s Premier League match against Newcastle and next Tuesday’s start of the Champions League at Young Boys, it is hoped the striker will be ready to assist the side and begin to have an immediate impact in his second spell at the club.”

“He’s a special boy, or man now, he was a boy when I played with him.

“Of course, the players are excited, some have played with him in their national team. You see the fans – they’re excited. That’s what he does, he’s a special player.”

According to reports on Firstpost, on his return, Ronaldo said, “I can’t even start to explain my feelings right now, as I see my return to Old Trafford announced worldwide.”
