Having completed a sensational return to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he is back at Old Trafford to create history and win trophies. The Portuguese, who was rumoured to join rivals Manchester City has returned to Manchester United after 12 years away at Real Madrid and Juventus.

Speaking to Manchester United’s official website Ronaldo admitted he was happy to be back at Old Trafford. The forward added “Well, as you know, I have a fantastic history with this amazing club. I was there at 18 years old and of course I’m so happy to be back home after 12 years. So I’m really glad and looking forward to start my first game.”

The former Real Madrid player highlighted the significance and importance Sir Alex Fergusson has had on his career. Speaking on the former United manager Ronaldo said “As everybody knows, since I signed for Manchester [United] at 18, Sir Alex Ferguson was the key. I remember when we played against Manchester when I was at Sporting Lisbon. For me, Sir Alex Ferguson is like a father in football for me.”

He helped me a lot, he taught me many things, and in my opinion of course he had a big role because the relationship that we had, we keep in touch all the time, and he’s an unbelievable person. I really like him a lot and he was the main key for me to be in the position that I am, that I signed for Manchester United.”

Speaking on the return to Manchester United, Ronaldo said “I think it’s the best decision that I have made it. It’s right on point in my opinion. I moved from Juve now to Manchester, it’s a new chapter, I’m so happy and glad, and I want to carry on again, to make history, to try to help Manchester achieve great results, to win trophies and number one of them, to win great things.”

Having played alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his first spell at Manchester United, Ronaldo will play for the Norwegian this time around, and the forward insisted he would do everything to help his team achieve results. Speaking on the United manager the Portuguese said “Well, we had a chat, but of course I’m going to have time to speak with him face to face, to know what he expects. As you know, I played with him for two or three years at Manchester United so I have a good relationship with him but now with a different role, I’m a player and he’s a coach.”

But it doesn’t matter, my relationship with him is great and as I say before, I’m there in Manchester to help the team achieve his results and the coach can count on me for whatever he wants. So I’m available for everything.”

Ronaldo admitted he is eager to play in front of the fans in the famous red shirt and make them happy by winning games. The forward added “Well, the fans is the key of football. Now, with all the stadiums full of supporters, it’s not the same that we had one year ago, those empty stadiums. The fans, they are the key, and I’m so glad. The Manchester United fans, they are special, I know, I remember very well.”

I know they still sing my music which has made me feel even more happy and my commitment is to give everything on the pitch, like I did before, like I do it all the time, and try to do my best, help the team score goals, make assists, win games, and I hope to see them very, very soon.”
