[OPINION] Ronaldo Continues To Show He Is A Great Role Model

Following Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular return to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day, Jadon Sancho has given his first impressions of the Portugal captain. As his time at Juventus came to an end, the 36-year-old returned to the Premier League in the summer, ending a 12-year absence from Old Trafford. Sancho had only been at United for a few months when he joined from Borussia Dortmund, after a three-year search for the winger following his eye-catching performances in the Bundesliga.

And despite a rocky start to his career under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previous to his expulsion, the winger is finally starting to find his feet for United. Ronaldo won the Golden Boot ahead of Romelu Lukaku towards the end of his Serie A career, but it wasn't to be a fairytale finish as Inter Milan dethroned Juventus. During his tenure at Juve, the United great also failed to win the Champions League.

Many wondered about the influence the five-time Ballon d'Or winner would have upon his arrival at United, but Sancho has now shared his first impressions of meeting Ronaldo and training with him. "I thought 'wow that's weird' when I first saw that [he was signing], but obviously watching him, what he's done during his career, to be assisting him, working alongside him, it's extremely wonderful," he told the England YouTube channel.

"But one thing I'm interested in seeing is how he works behind closed doors, as a young player like myself would benefit from learning how to rise to the top and elevate. I'm also going to purchase a couple autographed tees to frame." Could this be a trick to try and convince Erling Haaland to join the Red Devils?
