Alex Telles explains why Cristiano Ronaldo was 'upset' during Man Utd win

Cristiano Ronaldo was born with a winner's mentality - that is clear to see. So often a player who pops up in the last minute to win his country or club the game, it was not out of the ordinary to see him do the same last night in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Villarreal.

Ronaldo seized upon a rebound after he had given Jesse Lingard the ball with a deft header to send Old Trafford into raptures.

And Alex Telles has praised his team-mate for his conduct by saying he only needs one chance to win a game - although he did mention the Portugal star was upset with his team-mates.

Ronaldo had been angry with the service being provided throughout the game as United scraped a victory.

But as mentioned, he only needed one chance - which he took with aplomb in the last minute.

“So, it was the first time I play with him," Telles said to TNT Sports.

"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.”
