Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to exceed last season´s 23-goal tally after the Manchester United star returned to haunt old club Sporting Lisbon with a goal in the 1-0 victory.

It was the 22-year-old´s first goal of a campaign that has already been shortened by a three-match ban imposed for his dismissal at Portsmouth last month, but now he is up and running, Ferguson expects his brilliant young winger to hit top form again.

"He scored 23 goals last season and it is absolutely realistic that he could at least achieve that again," Ferguson said. "We expect him to improve as a footballer. We expect to see the development in his football."
