"Big performance from the players. Big, big performance. And all the teams all over the world have to show discipline and character and intensity and good fight and that's what we did today. Not easy. Credit to the entire team, to the technical staff. A very good team performance, even with the subs coming in you could see the intensity and the willingness to assist the team to win the game. Congratulations to Sundowns, strong, powerful performance."

"When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear. But I think it was normal. I didn't expect they would sing all game my name so I was very nervous. Maybe it didn't show, but I was. The reception is incredible, but I'm here to win games, to help the team and get the club back where they deserve."
Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated an emotional Manchester United homecoming with two goals against Newcastle.
“I miss the Ballon d'Or? No, it is the Ballon d'Or that misses me! Deep down, I think I'm the best player in the world. I don't think it's relevant to compare players with each other. Everyone has played in their generation, with different teammates. It is difficult to compare. I think everyone has their story and should face it."
Added confirmation that AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never lacked confidence.
"For me, it's been the best week or 10 days of my career in this industry. I am not saying they were the easiest, but I got to the game today with a real emotion inside because you learn a lot in difficult moments, who you are with. In difficult moments when you see the people and the level of organisation and the fans we have. From the top of the club to everybody that works with us as a team, I cannot be any prouder for what we've done.”
