Cristiano Ronaldo immediately scored in his second adventure with Manchester United after leaving Juventus: his goal that opened the scoring against Newcastle at Old Trafford, then doubled at the beginning of the second half after the momentary draw. CR7 has already taken back the Premier League.
Like in a fairytale, Cristiano Ronaldo immediately re-tied the threads with the past: the Portuguese champion scored in the match of his second Premier League debut with the shirt of Manchester United. At Old Trafford there was the expectation of the great opportunities for the return to the Red Devils jersey of CR7, on the field from 1 ‘against the Newcastle: waiting paid off with the goal that unlocked the result at the end of the first half. The Portuguese then doubled up shortly after the quarter of an hour of the second half, putting his teammates back in the lead after the momentary draw.
The first goal was actually really easy for a relentless scorer like the five-time Golden Ball, who picked up a clumsy kickback from Woodman on a slightly deflected shot by Greenwood from the corner of the penalty area. Canonical exultation followed, with the ‘Siuuuu’ shouted in unison by his adoring people. The first half of the match was not easy for the hosts, who were almost never dangerous near the goal of the Magpies: the goal of the former Juventus player seemed to pave the way for Solskjaer’s men, who instead let themselves be reached at the beginning of the second half by the bianconeri, with Manquillo.
Ronaldo, the protagonist of a dream script, again thought about bringing United forward, with a left diagonal as soon as he entered the area: also on this occasion the collaboration of the visiting goalkeeper, slipped between the legs, was decisive. Subsequently Bruno Fernandes and Lingard sealed the final 4-1. At Old Trafford, time seemed to run out back 12 years: it was May 16, 2009 when Ronaldo had played his last match with Manchester United before moving to Real Madrid. Now the great champion from Funchal has restarted as best he could: double on his debut, the Premier League is already at his feet.
