Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives his verdict on Ronaldo's debut performance

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace on his debut at Old Trafford.

The 36-year old forward made a sensational comeback to Old Trafford by registering two goals on his debut against Newcastle United.

The Red Devils sit at the top of the table with Ronaldo back at Manchester.

The Portuguese international scored his 120th goal for the Red Devils to crown a memorable second debut at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskajer always believed Ronaldo would have an immediate impact on his homecoming.

“I don’t think so,” Solskjaer said when asked if he had any doubts about Ronaldo’s effectiveness. “He does what he does. Cristiano lifts everyone, gets everyone so focused when he’s around the place, he puts demands on himself which puts demands on his teammates and demands on us, and that’s why he’s done so much in his career, he’s been so disciplined.

“He’s evolved, he’s a developed as a player, he’s a different type of player to when he left but he’s still a ruthless and clinical goalscorer, and he smells the big moments. He scents when there’s a goal.”
