Former Nigeria international Sunday Oliseh has described Cristiano Ronaldo’s return as unbelievable, after the Portuguese bagged a brace in his second Premier League debut in Manchester United’s 4-1 win against Newcastle United.
Ronaldo, who made his long awaited return by scoring twice as the Red Devils saw off the Magpies at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The five-time World Player of the Year opened the scoring late in the first half before restoring United’s lead after Javier Maquillo equalised for Newcastle.
Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard scored United’s third and fourth goals respectively to make it a memorable afternoon for the home faithfuls.
The win means United are top in the league table on 10 points just a point above champions Manchester City.
And reacting to Ronaldo’s impressive performance on his return, Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle:”Unbelievable Comeback! World-class 36 yrs and 7 months old, never been done! Phenomenal, extraordinary, inspiring… I joined the world to watch Cristiano Ronaldo “Wow” us all with 2 record-setting goals. Bravo CR7.”
At 36 years and 218 days, Ronaldo is the oldest player to score for United in the Premier League since Ryan Giggs in February 2013 (39 years, 86 days v QPR), while only Giggs and Paul Scholes have ever scored for the Red Devils in the competition at an older age than Ronaldo.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
