Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken of his excitement towards Cristiano Ronaldo’s first game since returning to Manchester United from Italian side Juventus.

Ronaldo joined Manchester United on Friday on a two-year contract after initially being linked with Manchester City.

It is first time back at the club since leaving in 2009 for Real Madrid on a then record deal.

While Cristiano Ronaldo was missing from the squad list for the win at Molineux Stadium on Sunday, Solskjaer is excited about the addition of the 5-time Balon D’or winner to the team.

“I’m excited to keep building this squad. He will bring something completely different, Hopefully Cristiano can come in and show what he has done in his career. I am sure he likes all the talk about being old. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.” said the United boss.

Manchester United defeated Wolves 1-0 on Sunday with a single strike from Mason Greenwood in the 80th minute.
