Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he never tires of watching the game which transformed him into a star.

Four years ago last month, Ronaldo turned in such an outstanding performance for Sporting Lisbon in their friendly win over Manchester United that Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs spent the journey home imploring Sir Alex Ferguson to sign the Madeira-born teenager.

And ahead of the Champions League clash between the two sides at the Jose Alvalade Stadium, Ronaldo said: "I have watched that game many times, tt was a spectacular match for a lot of reasons - it was our first game in the new stadium, there was a capacity crowd and it was against Manchester United, a team I have always dreamt about playing for. Now that dream has come true."
