Thursday 02 September 2021 07:00

On Wednesday afternoon, we published Cristiano Ronaldo’s first interview since returning to Manchester United and, as you would expect, it is a fascinating Q&A for every Reds supporter.

The club legend only had a limited amount of time to spare while on international duty with Portugal - with three matches to prepare for - but that did not stop him from delivering thoughtful, insightful answers stuffed with passion. 

In case you haven’t read it yet, or just want to enjoy it again, here are five killer quotes from an interview that was more than a decade in the making.

OFFICIALLY REUNITED
“I have a fantastic history with this amazing club. I was there at 18 years old and of course I’m so happy to be back home after 12 years.”
A REASON FOR REJOINING
“For me, Sir Alex Ferguson is like a father in football for me. He helped me a lot, he taught me many things, and in my opinion of course he had a big role because of the relationship that we had.”

HERE TO WIN
“It’s a new chapter, I’m so happy and glad, and I want to carry on again, to make history, to try to help Manchester United achieve great results, to win trophies and number one of them is to win great things.”

HUGE RESPECT FOR SOLSKJAER
“My relationship with him [Ole] is great and I’m there in Manchester to help the team achieve results and the coach can count on me for whatever he wants. So I’m available for everything.”

AN UNBREAKABLE BOND
“The Manchester United fans, they are special, I know, I remember very well. I know they still sing my music which has made me feel even more happy and my commitment is to give everything on the pitch.”
