All eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo as he made a return to Old Trafford after five years. Ronaldo was emotional when he arrived at the club and his initial post before the match proved just that. But after the match, his post for Sir Alex Ferguson stole the show. His post read, “A great coach and above all a wonderful man. Taught me so many things inside and outside the pitch. Great to see you in good shape, Boss!”Also Read - Leicester City vs Manchester United Live Streaming Premier League in India: When And Where to Watch LEI City vs MAN UTD Live Stream EPL Match Online and on TV
Sir Alex had signed Ronaldo from Sporting CP as an 18-year-old and nurtured him into a quality world threat in football, hence the respect and admiration between the two are mutual and Ronaldo never lets go of an opportunity to meet his former manager whenever he gets a chance. Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, a Champions League and a FIFA World Cup title at United under Sir Alex before joining Real Madrid.

Ronaldo did not make a big contribution in the match, but his assist to Paulo Dybala helped Juventus score the only goal of the match in the 17th-minute to help Juventus beat Manchester United in their own backyard.
Earlier, Ronaldo received a rousing reception when he took to the playing pitch. It is fair to say that the footballer enjoys a lot of admiration from fans at the Old Trafford and will arguably remain as the greatest to have ever played for the Red Devils.
