Cristiano Ronaldo has clarified that his return to Manchester United is not something he is taking lightly. He intends to take the Premier League giants to new heights starting this season.
United have won two of their three PL games so far, drawing one. They are third at the points table. Norwich will travel to Old Trafford for the next United clash.
Premier League fans can’t wait to see CR7 back in action after Juventus received £12.8m for their premium striker.
In an interview on United’s website, Cristiano said that he can’t wait to score some goals for the Red Devils again.
Ronaldo left United in 2009 for La Liga giants Real Madrid. In his first United stint under Sir Alex Ferguson, the No. 7 won three Premier League titles, one Champions League, two League Cups and one FA Cup, the Fifa Club World Cup and Community Shield.
United have been unable to continue their dominance in the Premier League since SAF’s departure, but Cristiano Ronaldo has affirmed that he will help the team win trophies.
“I am capable. I am ready to go. This is why I am here. I am not here for a vacation,” he said. “Before was good, winning important things and I wore the shirt before, many years ago, but I am here to win again.
“It is a good chance for me, for the supporters, for the club, to get one step ahead. I am ready and I think I will be a huge thing in the next three or four years.”
Why did Cristiano Ronaldo prefer United over Manchester City?
CR7 was first heavy linked with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. But just when he was expected to make the signing official, Manchester United jumped in and hijacked the move.
Many football fans worldwide had no clue as to why and how the entire thing went down. But Juventus director Federico Cherubini is believed to have an answer to this.
“There weren’t the right conditions to do so. Manchester United behaved differently, like a club with tradition,” the Juventus director revealed in a recent interview.
“There couldn’t be a different end, given the way Ronaldo had spoken to us. We couldn’t force a player to stay in a context that he didn’t recognise anymore.
“We respect Ronaldo, but I share the same view as our president – Juventus’ history is made by great champions, coaches and directors, but the club remains the most important thing.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has made an impact in every club he was played in his career. Let it be Real Madrid, Juventus or United, the Portuguese forward has netted a huge amount of goals day in and day out.
In just three seasons, he scored 101 goals for the Old Lady.
The Juventus director said that there’s no way he can replace Cristiano, but he’d like to bring on a young player now that CR7 has left.
“It’s impossible to replace Ronaldo. We anticipated the future by signing Kean, but it’s a signal for future generations,” Federico Cherubini said. “We brought an academy product back home. Here at Juventus, there is space for players coming from the youth sector.”
