Cristiano Ronaldo is wondering what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘expects’ following his massive transfer to Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star, has returned to Manchester United after a twelve-year absence.
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United after a twelve-year absence, and the winger is finally back at Old Trafford. However, the 36-year-old has yet to meet with his new manager in person.
Given how well he fared at Old Trafford in his first tenure, Ronaldo’s £20 million signing from Juventus has been greeted with chants such as “return of the King.”
It was always expected that he would return to United after winning three Premier League titles, three FA Cup winner’s medals, and growing sufficiently enough to earn the coveted Ballon d’Or during his six-year stay.
Although, from United’s standpoint, the sweetest part of the trade was snatching the contract from under the noses of their arch-rivals Manchester City.
Despite the fact that the transaction has progressed so rapidly, it appears that Ronaldo has yet to speak with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in person – something the Portugal star is eager to accomplish.
“Well, we had a chat,” Ronaldo told United’s official website. “Of course, I’m going to have time to meet with him face to face, to know what he expects.”
“As you know, I played with him at Manchester United for two or three years, so I have a terrific relationship with him.
“But now I’m a player, and he’s a coach,” says the player.
“But that doesn’t matter; I have a fantastic relationship with him.
“And, as I previously stated, I’m in Manchester to assist the team in achieving its goals, and the coach can count on me for anything he needs.
“As a result, I’m available for anything.”
Ronaldo will make his home debut against Newcastle United in two weeks, and Solskjaer will be hoping he can contribute.
Ronaldo was expected to be paraded in front of a home crowd in front of a television for his much-anticipated second debut.
However, because the game is on a Saturday at 3 p.m., supporters will have to make do.
