Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has described Manchester United as his "family".

Ronaldo is fired up ahead of the decisive second leg at Old Trafford on March 5 and is adamant that the Spanish giants will be victorious.

He said: “I didn’t celebrate the goal because Old Trafford is a home where I played for six years, and I arrived there as almost a kid.

“It’s not about not celebrating. I want to win but I respect the people of Manchester. If I left Madrid for another team one day, I would not celebrate against Real.

“It was beautiful and emotional to play against my family. We created but did not finish off our chances, and this is wide open for the return match.

“We go there to score goals and go through. No big deal.

“We shouldn’t change the plan we have because we always have the initiative and we will try to win at Old Trafford.”
