Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has hailed Manchester forward Cristiano Ronaldo for his performance in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday.

Ronaldo scored against West Ham and should have had three penalties but referee Martin Atkinson had other plans.

O’Hara’ told TalkSPORT: “I’ve never been so excited in watching a game. It was nostalgic.

“I grew up with United being the best team in the world, playing against them with the Ronaldo’s and Rooney’s and it was like that again.

“I watched him [Ronaldo] for Juventus and he was almost in and around the box, that’s where he did his work.

“For United he was everywhere. I think coming back and the atmosphere [at Old Trafford], it’s his home. The way he was going past people, showing his pace, it was incredible to watch.”
