Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he’s returned to Manchester United to win titles and not for a holiday after he visited Old Trafford for the first time since his arrival back in England.
Ronaldo re-signed for United last month following a 12-year hiatus in which time he became one of the best strikers in the history of the sport, winning an array of personal and team awards in the process.
The 36-year-old could make his return to English football when United play host to Newcastle on Saturday, but the Portuguese great couldn’t stop himself from getting a sneak peak of the Old Trafford pitch before the match as he donned a playing shirt, and took in the surroundings alongside former teammate Wes Brown.
While many have questioned the signing given Ronaldo’s age, The five time Ballon d’Or winner admits that he’s here to help the club reach the very top.
‘This is why I am here [to win]’ Ronaldo told Manchester United FC.
‘I am not here for a vacation. As I told you, before was good, winning important things and I wore the shirt before many years ago, but I am here to win again.
‘I am capable, me and my teammates. I am ready to go, I am ready to go. 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.’
The club also posted a video of their new signing walking out of the stadium tunnel, with the caption ‘he’s home.’
