Ronaldo said, “I came to United to win” in an interview with the club released on the 10th (Korean time), one day before the English Premier League (EPL) home match against Newcastle.
Ronaldo recently left Juventus (Italy) and returned to Manchester United after 12 years. After signing a contract with Manchester United, he was immediately called up to the Portugal national team and completed the 2022 Qatar World Cup European qualifier schedule.
Ronaldo’s comeback game is highly likely to be a weekend game against Newcastle. Fans’ expectations for Ronaldo are enormous. According to local media, tickets for Manchester United and Newcastle have already sold out. Tickets soared up to £2514, but even that was sold out.
Ronaldo, who moved to Manchester United, expressed his determination to do his best to win the title. Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title in nearly 10 years since the 2012-2013 season. “Winning is the reason I came to Manchester United,” Ronaldo said. Now we will try to win again at Man Utd.”
The match between Manchester United and Newcastle will take place on the 11th at 11pm at Old Trafford, Manchester, England.
