Former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked Manchester United fans for the reception they gave him in the Champions League Group H clash at Old Trafford.

Paulo Dybala scored the only goal of the game in the 17th minute of Champions League and Ronaldo came close to finding the net against his former side in the second half but his powerful strike was brilliantly saved by David De Gea.

Ronaldo also stunned De Gea with a powerful free-kick that almost gave Juve a goal, but at the end of the game, the United fans applauded their former hero who waved them farewell.

After the game, Ronaldo appreciated United’s home support and then he posted on Instagram: “An important victory in a very emotional match for me. It was great playing at Old Trafford again. Thanks to all the fans for the reception and support.”

Even before the game, Ronaldo admitted that he still loves the club and remembers all the moments he had at Old Trafford.

“I won lots of trophies here, cups, league, Champions League. I remember the support as well. The support is fantastic,” Ronaldo told reporters at a press conference at Old Trafford ahead of the tie on Tuesday.

“Sir Alex Ferguson is someone I will never ever forget and I would like to express my best possible wishes to him.”
