Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side had laboured against their Europa League final conquerors at Old Trafford.

They fell behind through a Paco Alcacer strike on 53 minutes, before Telles levelled on the hour mark.

Ronaldo grumbled before grabbing a priceless 95th minute winner, having been assisted by Telles’ 89th minute replacement Jesse Lingard.

After the match, the left-back told TNT Sports: “So, it was the first time I play with him.

“Off the pitch, we already have this closer relationship because we speak Portuguese.

“And five minutes before he was a little upset that we didn’t get any balls to him.

“I said ‘it will arrive, it will arrive, stay concentrated because it will arrive’. And as soon as I went off, Ronaldo doesn’t need much, right?

“We know his quality, we see it on a daily basis. So it only took one ball in the box and he gave us the victory. It’s a dream.”

Bruno Fernandes’ echoed Telles’ sentiment, admitting after the match: “We knew it with Cristiano, at any moment, every ball in the box could be a goal.”

While BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand revealed after the game: “He (Ronaldo) text me tonight saying ‘I didn’t play well but I knew I’d score’.”

Telles, meanwhile, was deputising for the injured Luke Shaw, who went off early at the weekend against Aston Villa.
