Cristiano Ronaldo demanded team-mates ‘sacrifice everything’ to bring good times back to Man Utd in rousing speech

CRISTIANO RONALDO demanded team-mates show their love for Manchester United by “sacrificing everything” to bring back the good times.

The superstar striker gave a stirring speech prior to his second debut in which he told how he had returned to United to not only win trophies, but bring back a “winning mentality” which would serve as his legacy.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed how Ronaldo gave a speech to United’s squad on the eve of scoring twice in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Newcastle.

A source told SunSport: “Ronaldo’s speech was very powerful and uplifting. The whole group of players and coaching staff listened in silence.

“He told his team-mates: ‘I have returned to Man United for two reasons.

“The first is because I love the club. The second is I love the winning mentality that breeds through the ranks of this club.

“I have not come back to be a cheerleader. If you guys want to succeed, then I need you to love this club from the bottom of your hearts.

“You need to eat, sleep and fight for this club. Whether you play or do not play, you need to support your teammates and always give 100 per cent for the club.
