Ronaldo scored in either half of United’s 4-1 win over Newcastle at Old Trafford on his emotional homecoming, then revealed his ambition to win a fourth title with the Red Devils.
“I’m here to win, I think we have a fantastic team with great potential and we need to build up confidence,” said Ronaldo.
“Manchester United need to be where they deserve, to go step by step to win the Premier League.”
Ronaldo paid tribute to United’s fans, who sang his name throughout his thrilling return, his double helping take Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to the top of the table.
“Unbelievable!” said Ronaldo. “It was an unbelievable welcome that this crowd gave me. The supporters, they sang my name all game.
“Of course, they know my celebration. They were waiting for my celebration, so I did it.
“It’s my mark, but the most important thing is the team. It was my day, I know, but it’s finished. What I want is to help the team to win trophies.
“I belong to this club, so I want to help the team to achieve good things and I’m looking forward to the next games.
“This team has huge potential. We have fantastic players, a good coach, a good team and we need to build up the mentality to win the Premier League and even the Champions League.”
There was an aura around Old Trafford on the return of the Portuguese superstar, who after 12 years away, still shows little signs of slowing down.
It took until the stroke of half-time for him to break the deadlock with the simplest of tap-ins after Mason Greenwood’s shot was parried kindly into his path.
