An insight into what Cristiano Ronaldo said in a speech ahead of his 2nd Manchester United debut has been revealed by the Sun.

Ronaldo is back

Ronald would of course make the return to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese returned to England for the first time since he left Man United back in 2009 for Real Madrid.

CR7, as he has been dubbed over the years, has been a serial winner wherever he has gone in his career and United fans are no doubt hopeful he can help their club end their barren trophy spell.

Man United’s last trophy was the Europa League in 2017 and they have not won the league since back in 2013.

Ronaldo’s speech

However, if Ronaldo can continue to replicate his display vs Newcastle United over the weekend, United’s trophy drought should be over sooner rather than later.

Now, as mentioned above, the Sun report that before he made his second United debut vs Newcastle, Ronaldo gave a speech.

They claim that all the players and coaching staff listened in silence, reporting that their source said this:

“Ronaldo’s speech was very powerful and uplifting. The whole group of players and coaching staff listened in silence.

“He told his team-mates: ‘I have returned to Man United for two reasons.

“The first is because I love the club. The second is I love the winning mentality that breeds through the ranks of this club.

“I have not come back to be a cheerleader. If you guys want to succeed, then I need you to love this club from the bottom of your hearts.

“You need to eat, sleep and fight for this club. Whether you play or do not play, you need to support your teammates and always give 100 per cent for the club.

“I am here to win and nothing else. Winning brings us happiness. I want to be happy, do you?’”
