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.”
