Man United boss Solskjaer reveals Cristiano Ronaldo’s pre-Newcastle ‘speech’


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo made a brief speech to his new teammates, ahead of the club’s meeting with Newcastle United.

2nd debut delight

The Red Devils were of course back in action a short time ago.

Solskjaer and co. welcomed Steve Bruce’s Newcastle to Old Trafford, for the club’s first outing on the back of the international break.

And what an outing it proved.

After Tottenham fell to a surprise defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace in the day’s early kick-off, United climbed clear of the Lilywhites to the Premier League’s summit, courtesy of a 4-1 win.

Cristiano Ronaldo, on his 2nd debut for the club, inevitably proved the star of the show, netting a brace to hold the Magpies at bay after Javier Manquillo threw a spanner in the works early in the 2nd-half:

Next on the scoresheet was Bruno Fernandes, who bent home a wonderful effort to kill off any hope of a Newcastle comeback ten minutes from time, before Jesse Lingard added some gloss to the scoreline with an injury-time 4th.

In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close in Manchester, it has come as little surprise to see the name of that man Ronaldo take centre stage in the post-match chatter.

Any remaining doubters were firmly silenced by the Portuguese this afternoon, who proved, for the umpteenth time, that he can still perform at the highest level, despite his advancing years.

As outlined above, though, it was not only CR7’s actions on the pitch which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to highlight during his post-match media duties this evening.

Speaking to MUTV, the United boss was drawn on Ronaldo’s instant impact, and went on to reveal that the veteran attacker actually made an effort to inspire the Red Devils squad long before the action had even gotten underway versus Newcastle:
