I don’t know if you remember, but Cristiano Ronaldo played on the right side back in his days at Old Trafford.

He guided United to three consecutive Premier League titles and the Champions League, beating David Beckham for the place in our Best XI. Ronaldo won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award three times, in 2004, 2007 and 2008.
