- Cristiano Ronaldo could end up winning the support of Premier League legend Peter Crouch after an explosive second Man United debut
- The former Liverpool striker has been a staunch follower of Lionel Messi and his incredible talent on the pitch
- But, with Ronaldo scoring twice on his first game for the Red Devils after over a decade is something admirable for Crouch
Cristiano Ronaldo raised the bar when he scored twice on his second Manchester United debut at Old Trafford against Newcastle United over the weekend.
The goals inspired the Red Devils to a 4-1 victory as they maintained their unbeaten start to the 2021-22 Premier League campaign.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are now topping the EPL table with 10 points from four games - the same as Chelsea and Liverpool so far.

He scored a brace to help Portugal come from a goal down and outshine the Republic of Ireland in their World Cup qualifier earlier this month.
And the 40-year-old believes Man United bought greatness when they decided to pursue the attacker's signature before the summer transfer window closed a few weeks back.
Crouch also revealed that Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney used to tell him that Ronaldo used to vow to end up as the best player in the world, but, United's players would laugh at him.
Showing such confidence at that young age, and going ahead to achieve everything said was outrageous.
