Cristiano Ronaldo Returns To Manchester United and Strikes Twice

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford was a dream come true to Manchester United fans after recording a brace during his second debut with the team. Cristiano helped Manchester record a 4-1 victory over New Castle last weekend, in a game that offered plenty of frustrations and excitement in equal measures.

Before closing the summer transfer window, Cristiano seemed destined for Etihad Stadium before agreeing to return to Old Trafford 12 years after his departure. During his time outside Old Trafford, Cristiano recorded 551 goals in 572 games for Juventus and Real Madrid, getting four more Champions League titles to the ones he won with the red devils. His return to Old Trafford is an emotive and thrilling prospect to the supporters, as his name remains sung in the streets and his achievements a source of considerable pride. However, some fans are still wondering whether his trophy-hoarding success will continue under the management of his former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Second Manchester United Debut

During his first spell with Manchester United, Cristiano spent six seasons with the team between 2003 and 2009, where he won eight major trophies and scored 118 goals. The 36-year-old Portuguese player rejoined Manchester late last month on a two-year contract and made his second debut on Saturday against Newcastle. A live football betting was available for the game with Vwin99, an Asian sports betting site with solid EPL odds.

Earlier this month, Ronaldo (who will be wearing No. 7 jersey) said that his return to Manchester United isn’t a vacation and hopes to prove his value with consistent performances. Ronaldo further added that his main goal at Old Trafford would be to win again, terming it as a good chance for him, the clubs, and the supporters.

During their game against Newcastle last weekend, Cristiano recorded two goals to give fans a strong reason to believe that he’s at Old Trafford to stay. The Portugal captain has shown better individual performances, but it’s never been this impressive for a long time. His expectation to deliver was almost overwhelming, but Ronaldo did what he does best, and now the fans are wondering what that means for Manchester United’s prospects.

Is There Room for Everyone?

When Cristiano’s return to Old Trafford was confirmed, some fans were worried that he might block the growth of some United’s players like Greenwood, a central striker who excelled in his first three EPL games. However, on Saturday, he moved to the right wing and enjoyed a decent game, while Pogba went back to the central midfield and Jadon Sancho moved to the left.

The changes made in the team to accommodate Cristiano’s return shows that Ole Gunnar has found a new way to fit all the star attacking talent in his team in the starting lineup. Many questions are still unanswered, including whether Pogba can excel in the midfield and whether Sancho will be effective on the left like he’s on the right. There’s also the issue of where Marcus Rashford fits in the equation once he recovers from his injury. That means Solskjaer will need to manage his players with caution to keep everyone happy.
