Ferguson insists Manchester United cannot afford to fear Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese sensation returns to Old Trafford with Real Madrid tomorrow night for the hotly-anticipated Champions League last-16 second leg.

Asked if he was concerned about former United ace Ronaldo, Ferguson joked: “My biggest concern is that he turns up.”

But the Scot, who brought Ronaldo to Old Trafford in 2003 in a £13million deal, continued: “It is not something we should fear.

“If we worry about the danger Cristiano can give us we will forget some of the things we can do ourselves.”

Despite trying to deflect attention from the £80m star’s threat, Ferguson added: “What do you expect when you play against a team with Cristiano in it?

“You expect problems during the match.

"We have to try to curtail that as much as we can and as best we can.”
