Juve held in Italy as Ronaldo scores league goal No.400

I don't think he deserves anything more than the facts that his club was strong with him and he went through a situation that in the end he recognises that he was wrong.

Ronaldo first faced a Mourinho team as a teenager while playing for Sporting CP, featuring twice in Primeira Liga games against Porto, with both ending in defeat. He instead spoke about the incident regarding Marco Ianni, Chelsea's assistant coach who celebrated in front of Mourinho's bench at the weekend and sparked ugly scenes in the technical area after Chelsea's 96th minute equalizer at Stamford Bridge. He has been involved when the team played well and he played well too... I told the players we have to keep that happiness, pride and confidence of the way we played.

Mourinho's future at United is also in doubt with the Red Devils languishing in 10th in the Premier League, nine points off rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, just nine games into the new season.

Cristiano Ronaldo paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson as he prepares to make his Manchester United return with Juventus - and confirmed he will not celebrate if he scores. "They are more than a contender for the Champions League", Mourinho said.

"We did the statement two weeks ago if I'm not wrong, so I'm glad".

On his last visit to Old Trafford as a Real player, Ronaldo refused to celebrate, and he was asked what he would do tomorrow night, replying: 'My reaction will be the same'.

"All I am thinking about at the moment is Manchester United".

"So I'm always smiling, I'm a happy man, I'm blessed that I play in a fantastic club, I have a fantastic family, I have four kids, I am healthy, I have everything so the rest doesn't interfere on me so I'm very very glad".
