Man Utd's Ronaldo expects warm Lisbon welcome

Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo is expecting a warm reception from his former Sporting Lisbon fans tonight.

"I played here for seven years, I have a lot of friends here and I have always wanted to come back," he said. "I know people like me here. At Benfica they barrack me, here my reception will be good.

"I am very excited about the game and am looking forward to it so much.

"But however much I like the club, my first colours now are red and I hope to win with Manchester United."
