Cristiano Ronaldo‘s time at Real Madrid was of the highest standards as he played 438 games while scoring a total of 450 goals. He also won four Ballon d’Or prizes during his time at Los Blancos from 2009 to 2018. However, he claimed his first Ballon d’Or trophy in 2008 while playing at the Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson helped Ronaldo shape his professional career as he played for Manchester United from 2003 to 2009. Old Trafford witnessed his skills from day one when he made his debut against Bolton.
However, some of the United players found it difficult to play with the young Portuguese. Ruud van Nistelrooy, the popular striker at United was known to have problems playing besides Ronaldo. This was because Ronaldo favored embarrassing defenders over scoring goals or making assists. That being said, Cristiano was certainly the most skillful athlete on the pitch and United supporters loved to watch him dribble opponents.

Ronaldo’s abilities with the ball are evidently unquestionable because he was not shy to display his variety of skills throughout the games. United supporters and Ronaldo fans equally agree that his time at the Old Trafford was entertaining and worth to watch.
