Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction in interview after Man United 2-1 Villarreal goes viral

  • Rob Swan

Not for the first time in his extraordinary career, Cristiano Ronaldo was Manchester United’s hero on Wednesday evening.

The 36-year-old scored a dramatic winning goal against Villarreal in the Champions League to seal three precious points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

United found themselves 1-0 down at Old Trafford after Paco Alcacer scored for the visitors in the 53rd minute.

But goals from Alex Telles, who netted a stunning volley from a Bruno Fernandes set-piece, and Ronaldo in the fifth minute of stoppage-time sent the home fans wild shortly before the final whistle.

Ronaldo celebrated by tossing his shirt high into the air. The revered Portuguese forward further cemented his status as a United legend with another golden moment to add to the collection.

He was interviewed by BT Sport after the match and his reaction to the first question ‘Cristiano: You did it again…’ has gone viral on social media.

That reaction couldn’t be more Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner knows he’s that guy.

Let’s check out some of the best reaction on social media:

What else did Ronaldo say after the Villarreal game?

“That’s my job, yeah!” Ronaldo said.

“It was a very, very difficult game. Villarreal played so good, create many chances.

“We struggled a little bit because we knew before the game that we must win the game.

“It was tough, the team was a little bit nervous especially…. well, first half and second half, to be honest.

“But we had a little bit of luck that we didn’t have in the last game [against Aston Villa last weekend].

“It was good, great attitude from our players. The fans pushed us a lot, which I have to say thank you to all of them.

“This is what we need sometimes when we’re a little bit down, when the team is not playing well, but an important win.”


The veteran forward said he told the players before the second half that “we should believe” and added: “The game tonight was not my best. I didn’t play so good.

“But sometimes I play good I don’t score. Today I don’t play good and I score.

“Very important. We knew if we didn’t get points today it would be tough to go through to the next stage but now everything is possible, everything is open and we believe we go through.”


Ronaldo’s winning goal has significantly boosted United’s hopes of escaping Group F.

Following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys two weeks earlier, it was imperative for Solskjaer’s side to beat Villarreal at home.

The Premier League side now sit level on points with second-placed Young Boys and one point behind group leaders Atalanta.
