What’s Solskjaer said about Ronaldo?

“He is not signing to sit on the bench,” Solskjaer said as Manchester United signed off for the break with a 1-0 win at Wolves. “He is going to make us a better team.

“His last game for Portugal is Tuesday (September 7) and then we can get him back to Manchester and involved as soon as possible.

“Cristiano has evolved as a player; he used to play wide right, wide left, up front.

“He’s more of a centre-forward for me at the moment, but there will be games where we play with two or three up front. I want him in the box, I want him scoring goals.”

Ronaldo the record-breaker

Ronaldo showed his enduring goalscoring prowess as two late goals earned Portugal a dramatic 2-1 win over the Republic of Ireland – and Ronaldo more history.

The Portugal captain nodded home twice in the dying minutes of the World Cup Qualifier at the Estadio Algarve, taking him to 111 goals for his country – two ahead of the previous record held Iranian Ali Daei.

Ronaldo later posted on social media: “From all the records that I have broken during my career – and fortunately there have been a few – this one is very special for me and it’s certainly on the shelf of the achievements that make me truly proud.

“Congratulations to the ‘Shariar’ for holding the record for so long and thanks for always showing so much respect for me every time I scored and as I became closer and closer to his outstanding number.

“Thank you Portugal. Thanks to all my team-mates and opponents for making this journey so unforgettable. Let’s keep meeting inside the pitch in the years to come. I’m not closing the count just yet…”
