Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he’d welcome Cristiano Ronaldo back at Old Trafford. The duo played together, helping United to win the Premier League title in 2007. Ronaldo left the club for Real Madrid back in 2009.
Solskjaer was asked by ShivNadarFoundation which treble winner he’d like back at Old Trafford. He named Paul Scholes, Roy Keane and Ronaldo.
“That’s not fair, that’s very unfair. I can only have one?” he said. “I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn’t even play the final (against Bayern Munich in 1999). Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two. It’s unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo who is the best player in the world of course. I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield.”
Ronaldo won the Premier League title three times in as many years between 2007 and 2009. And he also helped United conquer the Champions League in 2008, scoring before missing a penalty in the shootout victory against Chelsea in Moscow.
