Solskjaer can count on me, Ronaldo assures Man United coach
Manchester United's new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo, has assured manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that he can count on him to help the team achieve the desired goal.
Ronaldo made the disclosure in his first interview with the club ahead of his second debut against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on September 11.
Both legends were teammates at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2007, although injuries plagued Solskjaer at that time in his legendary career and they were limited to just 32 appearances together.
Solskjaer then retired from playing and was quickly recruited by Sir Alex Ferguson to coach our forwards, which enabled the Norwegian to work closely with his Portuguese prodigy.
The two United legends went their separate ways in the years after, but they are set to be reunited this season following Ronaldo’s electrifying transfer back to the club from Juventus.
“Well, we had a chat, but of course I’m going to have time to speak with him face to face, to know what he expects,” explains Ronaldo, when asked if he has spoken to Solskjaer yet.
“As you know, I played with him for two or three years at Manchester United so I have a good relationship with him but now with a different role, I’m a player and he’s a coach.
“But it doesn’t matter, my relationship with him is great and as I say before, I’m there in Manchester to help the team achieve his results and the coach can count on me for whatever he wants.
“So I’m available for everything.”
