Ronaldo eager to score against United

4 March 2013 11:01

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he would love to score against Manchester United in their Champions League clash.

The Portuguese salvaged a draw for Jose Mourinho's team in the first leg after Danny Welbeck had given United the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu.

And Ronaldo hopes to put his name on the scoresheet again in his first return to Old Trafford since leaving the club in 2009.

If he does find the back of the net, Ronaldo said he is not sure how he would celebrate.

"It would be a beautiful sensation," he said. "If I score against them, it would be spectacular.

"I can't say how I'd celebrate - it would be something spontaneous - but I'd love to be in that situation."

The 28-year-old expects to be well-received by the United supporters after winning three Premier League titles and lifting the Champions League once during a six-year spell in the North West.

"I'm sure they will receive me well," said Ronaldo, who is the European competition's current joint-top scorer with seven goals.

"After the years I spent there and the friendships I have, I'm sure it's one of the places where they'll applaud me most. It was a beautiful time."
