Cristiano Ronaldo is set to line up against his former club in the Champions League on Tuesday after coming through training at Juventus’ Turin base on Monday morning.
The portuguese is still very revered at Old Trafford and Jose Mourhino alongside former team players have praised him for his consistency, saying he is one of the best players of all time.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has warned his players of the burning desire that Cristiano Ronaldo will have to secure a victory over them at Old Trafford with Juventus.
The ex-Red Devils winger will make his return to the venue where he first became a global superstar, scoring 118 goals in 292 outings with the club, on Tuesday on Champions League duty with the Italian side.
“He came back with me in Real Madrid,” Mourinho told United’s official website. “I know how much he loves Manchester United. I know that, but I also know how much he wanted to win here and score against Manchester United and win against Manchester United, because he did that with Real.
“He scored and they won. So, it will be more of the same on Tuesday.”
