Fergie on Ronaldo
“He dedicated himself to getting fit and his commitment to the club,” Ferguson said. “It (the crowd’s reception) was important for Cristiano. I think he realises what a great club he is at and how loyal the fans are. He will take great encouragement from that.”

“We made a lot of good chances, we played really good football, we played with speed,” he added. “It was difficult for a couple of players who were playing their first games. It was a big ask for them to complete 90 minutes. Maybe in the second half it opened up because a few players were starting to feel it. I have no complaints. On another day we could have scored four or five. They are a very experienced side, very competitive team. They defend determinedly.”
