Manchester United head coach, Jose Mourinho, has claimed that Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, will love to score against his side despite his respect for the club when they meet tonight in their Champions League fixture.
Ronaldo will play against his former club at Old Trafford for the first time in five years on Tuesday night.
The last time Ronaldo played United was at the knockout stage of the 2012-13 Champions League, when he scored the winning goal in a 3-2 aggregate victory for Real Madrid.
Mourinho’s side head to the game following a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at the weekend, while Juventus played a 1-1 draw with Genoa in the Serie A fixture.
“He [Ronaldo] came back with me in Real Madrid. It was a knockout match and I know how much he loves Manchester United. I know that, but I also know how much he wanted to win here and score against Manchester United and win against Manchester United,” Mourinho told Manchester United’s website.
“Ronaldo scored, and they won. So, [on Tuesday], more of the same. The fans will show the respect he deserves. He will show that to the fans too. I know that he really loves the club but when the ball starts rolling, he wants to score, and he wants to win.“
