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 thаt we didn’t get аny bаlls to him.
