Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has revealed he’s delighted Manchester United avoided defeat in Italy, when we faced Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League.

United seemed destined for a second defeat in just three games, after falling behind to the hosts twice during the encounter.

But goals from Ronaldo on either half of the game was enough to earn us a point, although the Portuguese insists we were lucky to come back with a draw.

Speaking to the media after the game, he said, “It was a difficult game, I know when we play in Bergamo it is always difficult, but we believe until the end and I am so happy,’ he said.

“We never give up, we believe until the end, it is a good result for us. The beginning was tough, we knew Atalanta would do a lot of pressure, they have a fantastic coach, when I played at Juventus they were always difficult to play against.

“We were a little bit lucky in the end but that is football. We have to still improve, we have different players, different system, we have to adapt with each other, but it will take time. we have time to improve and be better.”

All eyes will now be on this weekend’s fixture against Manchester City, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his boys aim for successive wins in the Premier League.
