Revealed: United's Man of the Match v Newcastle

Saturday 11 September 2021 18:23

Cristiano Ronaldo was voted as Manchester United’s Man of the Match against Newcastle having scored a brace on his Reds return.

It was all about Ronaldo at Old Trafford on Saturday. Our no.7 scored twice in his comeback match as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side went on to win 4-1 over the Magpies.

United supporters were delighted to see the Portuguese forward back in the red shirt at the Theatre of Dreams. Following his incredible performance, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner was voted Man of the Match by our fans. Ronaldo won the award with an incredible 85 per cent of the votes, one of the biggest winning margins in history.

Cristiano Ronaldo made an instant impact on his second United debut, a year ago today - watch the extended highlights...

Second in the voting was Paul Pogba, who produced the assists for our final two goals against Newcastle. The Frenchman only got five per cent of the votes but on any other day than Ronaldo’s return, one could have expected that number to be higher.

Bruno Fernandes finished third on four per cent. The Portuguese magnifico smashed in our third of the afternoon with an incredible strike from outside the box to ensure a two-goal lead ten minutes from time.
