Cristiano Ronaldo put Manchester United ahead of Newcastle Saturday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

 

He scored at the first-half extra time after receiving a hero’s welcome at Old Trafford as he made his second debut for Manchester United.

 

The football superstar scored after Mason Greenwood’s shot bounces off Newcastle’s goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.

 

He was close to scoring 10 minutes into the game as a quick turn of feet gave him a yard of space in the penalty area but he fired into the side-netting.

 

The goal is Ronaldo’s 119th Manchester United goal and the first in 12 years.

 

The Portugal attacker tapped home in first-half stoppage time after Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman could only parry Mason Greenwood’s shot.

 

Ronaldo’s breakthrough is the only goal in the six 3 pm Premier League fixtures so far this afternoon.

Other 3 pm games are Arsenal vs Norwich, Brentford vs Brighton, Leicester vs Manchester City, Southampton vs West Ham, Watford vs Wolves, and Chelsea vs Aston Villa.

 

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who left United to join Real Madrid in 2009, returned to the club where he made his name as a global star last month from Juventus.

 

Since joining United Ronaldo broke the all-time international goalscoring record with his 110th goal for Portugal in a World Cup qualifier win against the Republic of Ireland.

 

Having being suspended for the subsequent game against Azerbaijan for removing his shirt in celebration, he jetted to England and has been training with his new team-mates for the past few days.

 

Ronaldo is joined by United’s other summer signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in a star-studded team also including Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

 

Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League during six trophy-laden years with United, before going on to shine with Real and Juventus.
