Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction after securing a late win against Atalanta is everything fans want to see from a player.

Man United snatched all 3 points from their latest Champions League outing after staging yet another impressive comeback. Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral gave their side a 2-goal advantage in the first half before Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire leveled the scoreline during the second half.

Ronaldo then emerged from the crowd of players to head in a classic header to win United the tie and then proceeded to drop his usual “SIUU” celebration for a passionate knee slide. The whole of Old Trafford resonated with the Portuguese’s energy and erupted in joy.

Moreover, what happened right after the full-time whistle caught everyone’s eyes. The former Real Madrid man went on his knees and screamed with happiness as he clenched his fists.

 

A moment of pure passion like that just cannot be simulated, which is exactly why fans loved the sight of it. One can easily make out how much the win meant to the forward and how much he cares about the club.

Wednesday’s winner has taken the striker’s goal tally for the season to 6 in just 8 games. Despite speculations that the veteran would find it difficult to adapt back to English football at his age, he made his mark immediately and is continuing to do so.

On the other hand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can use this win to his advantage and begin to turn his side’s poor run of form around. With Liverpool traveling to Manchester next week followed by a trip to Tottenham Hotspur the week after, there is no better time to change the tide and get the team back on top.
