“It is difficult when you play with love,” Evra told MUTV. “Cristiano will get a great reception on Tuesday because of what he achieved for Manchester United. The fans will never forget what he did. Also, he still loves the club. I remember after the game in Madrid we had a chat. He said it was going to be more difficult to come here. This is his house, so there will be a lot of emotion. I hope he doesn’t play well because of that. But Ronaldo is a winner. He is a big competitor. If he can win against Manchester United he will do it.”
