Football News : Ronaldo trains ahead of Young Boys in UCL

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United have the strength to compete on all fronts this season following the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho. Ronaldo made an instant impact on his second debut for the club on Saturday, scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Newcastle, and is in the squad that has travelled to face Young Boys when the Champions League campaign begins on Tuesday. Edinson Cavani, Dean Henderson, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, Alex Telles and Phil Jones are all absent, but United now have the depth to cope - the fruits, Solskjaer said, of a recruitment strategy outlined when he took the job a little under three years ago. "But this team has grown and matured over the last few seasons. That was always the plan (when I came in), we said in three years' time we'd have a squad with experience and quality that could challenge," said Solskjaer. "With players like David (De Gea), Harry Maguire, who's been here a couple of years, you get that spine in the team with experience and quality. With Raphael and Cristiano coming in, they add to that," he added. David De Gea, who spoke at the presser on Monday, echoed his manager's words on Cristiano Ronaldo saying it is massive for Manchester United to have the Portuguese player back "home".
