Man Utd defender Evans: We must keep Ronaldo quiet

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans knows they must keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet to get something from Real Madrid in the first-leg of their Champions League tie.

Ronaldo has proved impossible to stop for even the best defences.

"I am sure one or two of the lads have kept in contact with Cristiano and Nani was obviously on international duty with him," said Evans. "He will be looking forward to the game just as much as we are.

"He has adapted his game from when he was at United.

"When he was playing here he was a right or left winger and was expected to work back a lot.

"Real Madrid don't play like that, so he has changed his game to suit them.

"There are so many other players who can cause us problems but he will be the one everyone will be looking to as the man to stop and we have to make sure we keep him quiet."
