After a disastrous international break, Cristiano Ronaldo smiles again.
The reason for? He is back in Manchester with his family.
Ronaldo sent a picture from his private jet as he flew back to England from Portugal.
He says he is now focused on reaching his goals with Manchester United in the next few months before the World Cup finals begin in March.
Back to work
Ronaldo will have to work hard to get Manchester United back on track. The situation at Old Trafford was grim when he traveled to Portugal earlier this month.
United have only won one of their last six league games and are down to sixth place in the Premier League table.
The club’s next three league games are against Watford (a), Chelsea (a) and Arsenal (h).
Next week there is a draw in the Champions League away against Villarreal, where Ronaldo will try to score in a fifth game in a row.
United need Ronaldo to perform, but more critical is that the players around him should increase it.
Ronaldo has already scored nine goals this season, five more than any of his teammates. He is an asset, not a problem for United, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær must find out how to get the rest of the team to click.
