Jose Mourinho: Cristiano Ronaldo's Manchester United return 'was never on the table'

Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo overhead kicks and scores during their Uefa Champions League quarter-final first leg match against Juventus at the Allianz Stadium in Turin

First, he was edged out by former Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric for UEFA's player of the year award.

It's not quite come off for him in the league, however, with Ronaldo having now failed to score in his opening three Serie A matches.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo's goal drought has been caused by differences between Serie A and La Liga. Even so, he played a solid game and he helped the team out. But one Madrid legend wants United to rethink before doing so.

He said: "I didn't see it as a foul". "We still have a lot of work to do breaking away, it was very impressive". We believe if we turn up we can beat anyone - especially at Celtic Park.

That's more goals than his dad for Juventus.

Alexis Sánchez is expected to be back in the starting lineup when United travel to Burnley on Sunday but will not be joining up with the Chile squad for their two Asian friendlies during the worldwide break.

"I wouldn't say that the Italian league is more hard or better than other leagues but it does require more attention". "He scored 15 goals in the Champions League and won the cup".

Canada's First Nations Score Victory as Court Rejects Pipeline Expansion
Canada's Federal Court of Appeal has axed the government's approval to build the $7.4 billion Trans Mountain expansion project. Bobocel says from a Chamber perspective, everyone involved in the project has gone above and beyond what they needed to do.

Ronaldo kept trying but it was a frustrating night for the World Player of the Year as Parma cut off the supply lines and prevented him getting in any of his dipping long-range shots. "It's different in Italy and I'm not saying that just because of the defenders we have here, but also the style of football. He will now have some time to rest and get ready for our next games".

An early Mario Mandzukic goal and a second-half strike from Blaise Matuidi gave Juve their third win in as many league games this season, although Ronaldo was left without a goal in his first 270 minutes with the Turin side.

Juventus club-record signing Cristiano Ronaldo may be struggling for goals but Cristiano Jr started life in the development side with a four-goal debut.
