Cristiano Ronaldo made his debut in the season with the Manchester United shirt and this second stage started in the best way: he scored a double against Newcastle, for the fourth date of the Premier League. During the match, not only the fans wanted to take home a souvenir of the Portuguese, but also some players from the rival team.

Despite having only one week of work with the squad, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to keep "CR7" the 90 minutes on the court. After the final whistle of referee Anthony Taylor, as is often the case, some players exchanged shirts, but this time the Portuguese was the most requested.

Cristiano Ronaldo was greeting his teammates and colleagues from Newcastle, when suddenly defender Jamaal Lascelles approached to request a swap of clothing. On this occasion, the former Juventus player had to refuse, although he seemed to have given him a signal to wait in the dressing rooms.

And just a few moments later, Joelinton appeared, a Brazilian attacker who curiously also wears the number 7 on his back. After a few seconds of conversation, the Manchester United star explained the reason for his refusal and again pointed to the area where all the footballers gather after the game.

The scene has not been a novelty, given that Cristiano Ronaldo has been seen repeatedly being approached by footballers to exchange the silks they used for 90 minutes. In this first game of his second stage with the 'Red Devils', the forward decided to take care of his jersey, at least in full view of the public.
