Manchester United owner and all the celebrities that watched Cristiano Ronaldo debut

Cristiano Ronaldo made his second debut for Manchester United on Saturday in the Premier League match against Newcastle United. The prolific forward scored 2 goals in the 4-1 routing of the Toffees. Ronaldo opened the scoring in the 47th minute of the game before putting United ahead again after an equaliser from Javier Manquillo. 

As Cristiano Ronaldo strutted to the turf to the delight of the 76,000 fans packed into Old Trafford, the executive section was also bustling with lots of celebrities and important figures present to see the 5-time Ballon d'Or winner play. One of the key celebrities that were in the Stadium to watch Cristiano Ronaldo's debut was United co-owner, Avram Glazer. The American businessman had not been to the home stadium of the club since August 2019. However, Cristiano Ronaldo's presence and landmark debut forced Avram Glazer to be at the Stadium. 

Also, another celebrity who was in the stands on Saturday to watch Cristiano Ronaldo was legendary United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson. The former coach was on the ground to watch the return of the 19-year-old played he signed for United in the summer of 2004. Though Ronaldo already won everything there was to win under the legendary coach, Ronaldo still went ahead to light the world on fire with his move to Real Madrid. Sir Alex Ferguson must have been impressed with the performance of his former charge as he was seen laughing after Ronaldo scored his second goal in the match. 

Cristiano Ronaldo will endeavour to replicate his impressive form from his time at Real Madrid. Opening his account with 2 goals in just the first game is the perfect way to reintroduce yourself to the Old Trafford fans. Manchester United will meet with Young Boys on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo would hope to continue his good scoring.
