Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently giving his word in pre-match press conference.
The Manchester United manager has been asked plenty of questions on Cristiano Ronaldo. His debut was, of course, among them.
The boss confirmed that Ronaldo will be available for the Newcastle clash.
His second debut as a Red Devil is confirmed, but Solskjaer didn’t mention whether he will be in the starting XI.
Solskjaer confirms Ronaldo will make his second debut for #mufc against Newcastle but didn’t say if he would start: ‘He’s had a good week with us here. He’ll definitely be on the pitch at some point, that’s for sure.’

Solskjaer has also spoken about the Portugal international’s fitness.
“Everyone evolves and develops throughout their career, Cristiano is a different player to one who left but he’s in such good nick still and will be looking in next few years to play and score as many goals as he can but also to be on the end of crosses and he’s added something extra.
“We don’t have his skill set in the team, the mix, no one has really. He is one of the best players that’s ever played the game.”
Having been asked about Edinson Cavani’s No.7 shirt exchange with Cristiano, the head coach answered.
“It’s one of these things that Edinson has been remarkable, played really well last season, Cristiano speaks with Edinson, to pass up his shirt shows the respect he’s got for Cristiano and respect the other way. Two top pros, players, and human beings.”
