Speaking to the club media, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “You run out of words to describe Cristiano Ronaldo. He is not only a marvelous player but also a great human being. To have the desire and the ability to play at the top level for such a long period requires a very special person.
“I have no doubt that he will continue to impress us all and his experience will be so vital for the younger players in the squad. Ronaldo’s return demonstrates the unique appeal of Manchester United and I am absolutely delighted he is coming home to where it all started.”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s €15 million move to Old Trafford from Juventus was made official on Tuesday, the European transfer deadline day.
The 36-year-old is currently away on international duty with Portugal and his second Manchester United debut is likely to take place against Newcastle on September 11.
