According to Manchester United legend Gary Neville, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United return has got the whole city ‘buzzing’.
“I walked out into Manchester’s city centre on Saturday morning and I’ve not seen it as alive for five or 10 years,” Neville said on his Sky Sports podcast.
“What he’s done to the Premier League for interest is exciting but for the city, he’s absolutely got it buzzing with excitement – and this was even before he scored the two goals.
“I was at Salford and saw the news that he scored. I could only imagine what the atmosphere was like and I spoke to a couple of people who were there and they said it was out of this world, bouncing like they’ve never seen it before.
“And, Lingard scored in the last minute which meant it was the perfect football day.”
