Cristiano Ronaldo who rejoined Manchester United after 12 years of leaving Old Trafford for Spanish giant Real Madrid will have his second debut for Red devils on Saturday against Newcastle.
36-year-old superstar returned to Carrington complex as a five times Ballon d’Or winner, with five Champions League titles, following his terrific spelling in Real Madrid and Juventus.
After winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2020 and in Serie A for Juventus last campaign, Ronaldo set another personal record by becoming the top goal scorer in the history of international football last week.
However, United, who will play Newcastle on Saturday, are no longer the dangerous side he left under Alex Ferguson.
Since Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, the Red Devils have failed to win Premier League title.
Bruno Fernandes believe the presence of Christiano Rolnaldo will inspire the whole squad.
“We know the enthusiasm will be red hot,” said Fernandes. “Everyone knows Cristiano is in the house.
“Everyone is very confident and happy that he is back, the players too.
“We know what he can give us, and our focus, like Cristiano’s, is to win. With him, we know we are closer to winning (trophies).”
After a promising start, with seven points from their opening three games, United are in a bunch of five sides, two points behind leaders Tottenham.
