Manchester United set to party like it’s 1999

The Red Devils are certainly going to take some stopping in the Champions League this season. It appears that the English champions have hit peak form at exactly the right time, winning 2-0 in Rome on Tuesday night when many were predicting they would settle for taking a draw back to Old Trafford. Do Manchester United have the look of European champions.

Their star player Cristiano Ronaldo is never one to be short of confidence, with the Daily Mail reporting that the best player in the world now believes that the giant trophy is within their reach. The Portuguese superstar headed in the opening goal for United, before Wayne Rooney made it two, and confidence is now sky-high within the camp.

Ronaldo said: “We have a great chance to win the competition now. This team are playing fantastic football and we have matured.

“I think it was a great header tonight and I feel very happy to have scored another goal, but the most important thing is that the team won the game. It was a good performance.”

It’s often easy to forget that Ronaldo is such an aerial threat considering what a wizard he can be with the ball at his feet. United are set to face their toughest test to date by playing Barcelona in the semi-finals, although they’ll surely be favourite against the Catalan giants considering the latest in a long line of comprehensive victories. – Updated news about Man UTD, Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and more.
