"For me, it has always been a magical place where you can achieve everything you set your mind into.

"Along with all my team-mates and with the amazing support that we always get from the stands, we face the road ahead with confidence and optimism that we’ll all be celebrating together in the end.

"Proud to be back at Man. United and playing in the Premier League once again, but above all, happy to help the team! Let’s go, Devils!"

Ronaldo also set a new Premier League record for the longest gap between league appearances .

"It's unbelievable. When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear. But I think it was normal," he told Sky Sports.

"I didn't expect they would sing all game my name so I was very nervous. Maybe it didn't show, but I was. The reception is incredible, but I'm here to win games, to help the team and get the club back where they deserve."
