But back in 2007, Ronaldo was a thorn in Roma’s side. in a quarter-final tie United won 7-1.

Having lost the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico 2-1, Sir Alex Ferguson’s men stepped it up a gear in the return fixture, taking a 4-0 half-time lead and eventually running out 7-1 winners with Ronaldo netting twice.

Such was their dominance, the five time Ballon dO’r winner claims several Roma players made a number of remarks to him throughout.

“When it was 6-0, they asked me to stop, an opponent begged me to stop dribbling,” Ronaldo said.

“Others threatened to hurt me.

“Roma? There is no player with whom I would exchange a shirt.”

Ronaldo also scored the last time he played against Roma when Real Madrid won 2-0 in a Champions League win in March 2016.
