Ronaldo only joined up with the first team squad on Tuesday after he was allowed leave the Portugal camp a few days before their second World Cup qualifier.

Many expected the five-time Ballon d'Or winner to make a cameo appearance against Newcastle United, but he ended playing the full game and bagged a brace on his return to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer says the 36-year-old gave a speech and 'introduced' himself and says the atmosphere has been great since his arrival.

"Of course, everyone when they come into the team they have to introduce themselves, so maybe not everyone knows his name," Solskjaer joked, as per Manchester Evening News.

"At least they do now.

"The atmosphere around the club has been electric, the supporters have really enjoyed the last 10 days or so since he signed and there are loads of expectations on the team today and he's delivered.

"He said his name is Cristiano, that's as much as I can say. I didn't want to take him off unless he wanted to come off. He needs minutes, he's had a little pre-season, he's lost a few games for Juventus and Portugal, so we just needed to get 90 minutes into him."
