Man United VS Sheriff: Old Trafford Erupts As Ronaldo Scores On His Return During Europa League Clash

Cristiano Ronaldo was back in his best form as he found the back of the net during Man United’s Europa League clash against Sheriff on Thursday night.

The veteran striker was recently banished from the first team by United boss Erik ten Hag after it emerged that he had left the pitch before the full-time whistle.

The incident happened during the Red Devils’ League clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, October 19.

At the time, Ronaldo had been left on the bench, and there were no signs of him featuring in the encounter.

However, Ten Hag later divulged that the Portuguese had refused to come on as a sub before he stormed out of the pitch, the forward’s conduct saw him exiled from the team before he was reintegrated back earlier in the week.

And the five-time Ballon d’Or winner proved to Ten Hag just why he is critical to him as he got his name on the scoresheet against Sheriff.

Diogo Dalot netted the opener for the hosts in the 44th minute before Marcus Rashford came off the bench to double United’s lead in the 65th minute while Ronaldo grabbed his own with nine minutes left on the clock, with the forward making no mistake in lashing home from six yards.

His goal, which was his third of the season, sent Old Trafford into a frenzy as fans erupted in celebration.
