Manchester United Coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, confirmed on Friday that Cristiano Ronaldo would play some part in the Premier League clash against Newcastle.
Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, Solskjaer said, “He’s had a good week with us here.
“He’ll definitely be on the pitch at some point, that’s for sure.”
Solskjaer would not be drawn as to whether the Portugal star would start the game at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo is ready to feature having had a pre-season with Juventus and also having played the full game for Portugal in a World Cup qualifier against Ireland last week.
SunSports reports that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been training at United since Tuesday.
Solskjaer said he expected Ronaldo to play at the top level until he is 40 years old, like another United great in Ryan Giggs.
