Champions League Draw: Ronaldo To Return To Old Trafford

The biggest talking point from today’s Champions League group-stage draw was the Group H pairing of Juventus and Manchester United.

Juventus’ new star-man Cristiano Ronaldo will be on his way back to his old hunting ground sooner than he might have thought before today’s Champions League group-stage draw.

The Turin club were drawn into Group H alongside José Mourinho’s struggling Manchester United.

Ronaldo, of course, was one of United’s finest talents of the modern-era and when he departed for Real Madrid in 2009, he left a void in the club that proved to be very difficult to fully fill.

In the nine years that followed, Cristiano went on to replicate and even further his success in La Liga, establishing himself as a true legend of the game and a candidate for ‘greatest of all-time’ honours.

With a pair of matchups against his old club now set, expect a unique atmosphere – especially when Ronaldo steps out into Old Trafford.
