On the same day that Cristiano Ronaldo made his comeback from injury, Man Utd rookie Isak Hansen-Aarren made his debut.
Isak Hansen-Aaren acknowledged that it was strange to work with Cristiano Ronaldo last week after his comeback for Manchester United.
On Sunday, against Rayo Vallecano, the 17-year-old made his United debut, marking Ronaldo’s return to action under new manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo spent last weekend working out with academy aspirants at Carrington rather than traveling with the United team on preseason tours to Thailand, Australia, or Norway.
Hansen-Aaren was one of those aspiring young people who had the opportunity to study with the Portuguese legend one-on-one; it was an encounter he will never forget.
Given that the Portuguese’s future is uncertain, United supporters will be hopeful that the pair stay on the same team for the upcoming season.
He told Dagbladet, “Ronaldo is something for himself. “You pay attention when Ronaldo passes. He is a large man, as you shall see. It becomes a little quieter as people start to respect him greatly.
“Everyone looks out for us well. Who you sit next to and converse with is extremely arbitrary. Ronaldo might be doing it for himself.
“He seems like a really decent guy, in my opinion. When playing football, confidence is a must.
You cannot execute without it. I believe it has something to do with the fact that the most confident people frequently exhibit the finest performance.”
