It’s been 13 years since the Portuguese Ballon d’Or winner signed his contract with Manchester United, back in 2003. We’re commemorating the moment with our favourite Ronaldo moments with The Reds.

The Big Debut

Ronaldo took to the pitch for the first time with Man Utd during a game at the start of the season against Bolton Wanderers, thrashing the team 4-0. He was the talk of the match with BBC Sport match report claiming he had put in “a scintillating performance.”

FA Cup Final – 2004

Of course he scored the winning goal in Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Millwall in the FA Cup final, leading him to his first piece of silverware with the Red Devils. Ronaldo headed home Gary Neville’s cross one minute before half-time to establish a lead for his side.

That’s quite impressive considering he was just a teenager who was fairly new to the team. What were you doing in your teenage years? We thought so…

Breaking George Best’s Goal Record – 2008

2008 was a good year for Ronaldo, on the same day he captained United for the first time, scoring twice in a 2-0 home victory over the Wanderers – taking his tally to 33 goals for the season. Beating the United record for goals from a midfielder in a single season, previously held by legendary George Best in the 1967/68.

Winning Champions League, 2008

He did this, he won that, he dated them, he gets paid this. WE GET IT. Ronaldo is better than almost everyone at almost everything. Minus that terrible Speedo fashion faux pas. Needless to say, the 2008 Champions League was undoubtedly a triumphant moment in the wonder career.

We could go on and on, drenching Ronaldo in glory and relieving his best moments. That would be nice wouldn’t it? Mmmm, nope. Let’s recognise that no matter how good you are or how rich you are, there’s always time for a little strop:
