Cristiano Ronaldo receives touching message from football legend Pele

Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo received a touching message from Brazil legend Pele after his return to Old Trafford.

Ronaldo sealed a blockbuster comeback at United on transfer deadline day following a £21million move from Juventus and looks set to make his debut against Newcastle on September 11.

Pele was very moved by Ronaldo’s homecoming statement as he knows a lot about home, having spent almost his entire career in Brazil with Santos before rolling credits at New York Cosmos in 1977.

Although the Portugal international broke the 80-year-old’s record for most goals in official matches back in March, the two men still share a strong friendship.

Pele said: “There is no better feeling than conquering the world and returning home. Always be happy, Cristiano.”
