Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford for the first time in five years, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still at the helm of the then-mighty Manchester United as The Daily Mail recalled, when he plays just his 11th game for Italian champions Juventus, in a UEFA Champions League Group H match that will live stream from Manchester on Tuesday.
Ronaldo first rocketed to global superstardom during his six seasons with Manchester United, Goal.com reports, leading the team to three Premier League championships as well as an FA Cup win, and perhaps most memorably, the first of Ronald’s five UEFA Champions League trophies, the other four coming during his career with Real Madrid.
The defending Italian champs signed Ronaldo largely to lift Juventus, a team that has dominated Italy’s Serie A, to only its third Champions League title — and first since 1996, according to The Telegraph. But Ronaldo has vowed that if he scores a goal against his old club, he will refuse to celebrate — as he also refused when he scored a winning goal at Old Trafford for Real Madrid in 2013.
“We have to respect Manchester United — fantastic team, experienced coach — but I expect and look forward that Juventus will win the game,” Ronaldo said at a press conference. “It’s a huge thing to come back. I remember what it was like in Manchester. My history, I won lots of trophies, cups, leagues, the Champions League. I remember the support of the fans.”

Juventus has won both of their first two Champions League group stage matches and won their first eight Serie A matches as well, per Sky Sports, but a 1-1 draw with Genoa on Saturday ended the winning streak. United, now commanded by Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid Manager Jose Mourinho, has a win and a draw in Group H, meaning that a win on Tuesday vaults them over Juve into the top spot by one point.
