After Danny Welbeck put United 1-0 up against Real Madrid, it wasn’t long before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised, seeming to levitate before his header left David de Gea with no chance.

As expected, Ronaldo didn’t celebrate his goal out of respect for his former club and fans.

“I didn’t see the replay of my goal but I will. They told me it was a beautiful goal,” he said. “I didn’t celebrate the goal because Old Trafford is a home where I played for six years, and I arrived there almost as a kid. It’s not about not celebrating. I want to win but I respect the people of Manchester. It was beautiful and emotional to play against my family.”
