Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what he expects from ‘special’ Cristiano Ronaldo after the club confirmed the Portuguese return on Tuesday.
Manchester United officially confirmed Ronaldo’s return on Tuesday and Solskjaer said Ronaldo’s “very special” signing underscored the club’s “unique” position in world football.
The former Real Madrud and Juventus striker has signed a first two-year contract with his former club.
Ronaldo spent six years at United, winning numerous trophies before joining Real Madrid for a world record.
Solskjaer played with Ronaldo in his last season before retiring in 2007 and the Norwegian admits he is almost “speechless” to describe the Portuguese superstar.
“You lack words to describe Cristiano,” Solskjaer said.
“He’s not only a wonderful player, but also a great human being. To have the desire and the ability to play at the highest level for such a long time requires a very special person.
“I have no doubt that he will continue to impress us all and his experience will be vital for the youngest players on the team.
“Ronaldo’s return demonstrates the unique appeal of this club and I am absolutely delighted that he is returning home to where it all began.”
