Good morning Manchester United fans,
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the pitch for the first time since parting ways with Manchester United after his tumultuous year-and-a-half return to Old Trafford came to an end.
The 37-year-old only agreed to an amicable contract termination on Tuesday, but showed little sign of it on the pitch.
He won a penalty and then scored from the penalty spot as Portugal beat Ghana 3-2 in a frenetic World Cup game.
His goal meant the former United star became the first to score in five consecutive World Cups, another amazing feat to add to Ronaldo’s long list.
At the end of the game, Man United goalkeeper Diogo Costa nearly dropped a massive clank, leaving Ronaldo stunned on the touchline after being substituted.
Meanwhile, the Glazers have finally broken their silence on why they want to sell the club.
Avram Glazer told Sky: “The board has gone through a process and decided to look at various strategic options for Manchester United.”
He added of Ronaldo: “
Well, I’ll tell you about Cristiano Ronaldo – he’s a great Manchester United player, I appreciate everything he’s done for the club.
“I wish Ronaldo the best of luck in the future.”
