Ronaldo's height attracts a new degree of attention, and it's no wonder that, despite being 36 years old, the former Real Madrid and Juventus forward has started the season how he intends to finish.

Jesse Lingard, another returning star after a half-season loan spell at West Ham, has had a strong start to the season, and the 28-year-old has complimented Ronaldo for his effect since joining the team, underlining the leadership he's provided to the group.

“He’s been brilliant — he’s brought so much to the team,” Lingard is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.

“He’s brought that leadership factor. He wants to win in training, he wants to win in games — he wants to win trophies. He’s great to be around, to watch what he does and you can really learn little things off of him.

“He’s one of the best players in the world – to have him back home is perfect for us at the moment. We know that he’ll score goals and win us games.”
