There were football fans who actually doubted Cristiano Ronaldo would be a success upon his return to Manchester United.
Some supporters didn’t think an ageing 36-year-old would be able to produce moments of magic back in the Premier League.
The only problem is, Ronaldo isn’t ageing.
The Portuguese superstar is still in incredible shape and has hit the ground running back at United with four goals in three matches.
Never write off Cristiano Ronaldo.
Gerard Pique’s wife, Shakira, found that out the hard way.
The ultimate Cristiano Ronaldo quiz
We take you back to the Copa del Rey final in the 2010/11 season between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
It was a tight and tense encounter between the two El Clasico sides at Valencia’s Mestalla stadium.
After a 0-0 stalemate after 90 minutes, the match entered extra-time.
Then, Ronaldo had an opportunity to score in the 98th minute but dragged his shot wide of the post.
It was a major let-off for Barcelona’s defence and you wouldn’t blame them for quietly celebrating the miss.
Pique’s wife certainly did.
She was seen in the stands standing and applauding the miss with a great big smile on her face.
Five minutes later, Shakira was standing again.
However, this time, she had her head in her hands in disbelief as Ronaldo scored a terrific header from Angel di Maria.
