Premier League Manchester United; Ronaldo said I was really nervous

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored nearly 800 goals for club and country and won several trophies in a career span of 19 years, but the Portuguese forward admitted to having butterflies in his stomach ahead of his second debut at Manchester United on Saturday.

Ronaldo, who scored 118 goals for United during his first stint, netted twice on his return in a 4–1 win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford, which sent the Manchester club to the top of the Premier League standings.

“I was really nervous, maybe I didn’t show it,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports.

“I was thinking last night that I want to show that I’m still capable of helping the team. When I started the game, I was so nervous when they were singing my name but this crowd is incredible.”

Ronaldo, who won eight major trophies with United, has rejoined a club that has failed to win a league title since he last won it in 2013 under his former manager Alex Ferguson.

The Portuguese forward said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the tools to win the league as well as the Champions League, but added that the team needs maturity.

“We have a great team, a young team and a great coach,” Ronaldo said. “But … we have to build up the confidence. If the team has to win the Premier League and the Champions League, it needs to mature.

“I think we are in a good way, we have to win games, build the team, build confidenceand I am here to help the team.”
Ronaldo said, ‘I did not expect to score two goals. I expect only one, but he scored two goals on his return to Manchester United.
Ronaldo returned to United in a blockbuster way.
