Ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in the Champions League with Real Madrid, he has spoken of his feelings for his former club.

“I still have a great feeling of friendship and love for them, they are a team that have done a lot for my career,” said Ronaldo. “The fans know me well and I have a lot of friends there that I keep close to my heart. But now I’m defending Real Madrid’s colours. It’s a bit of a sad feeling I guess. But I want to score, and for us to win, and that would make everything better.”
