Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted it was 'fantastic' to watch Cristiano Ronaldo make his second Manchester United debut.
Ronaldo made a sensational return to United on deadline day and, after returning from the international break early with Portugal, he made his much-anticipated second debut for the club against Newcastle in front of a full capacity Old Trafford.
It was the dream comeback for Ronaldo, who opened the scoring for United before adding another to score a brace on his return.
Since that game, Ronaldo has scored against BSC Young Boys and West Ham, and Ferguson has hailed his return to the club.
Manchester United enjoyed a sensational transfer window, securing the signings of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and... oh, yes, Cristiano Ronaldo.

"It's fantastic. You saw on that Saturday [Newcastle game] that it was like Caesar entering Rome after victory. I came, I saw, I conquered. It was fantastic," Ferguson told United's in-house media.
"I mean, for anyone who is a United fan, we could have had a million people in there, without doubt, as there were so many outside, hundreds outside. It's one of these things. When he was here as a kid, his learning process was very, very quick.
"A lot of people said he was a diver and there was a little spell of that but, after that, he was attacking defenders and all he needed was a nudge and he would waltz by them. He would attack with unbelievable speed.
"I think the increasing knowledge of his game - I think he was born with a desire. He sacrificed himself to be the best."
