As reported by FOX Soccer Blog earlier this week, a Man United fan group, “United Reel,” spent $4900 on an airplane to fly a banner over Real Madrid’s next match to lure Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.
That match was today at Villarreal, and United Reel delivered as promised:
The plane over El Madrigal by Man United fans has arrived! “Come home Ronaldo,” banner. pic.twitter.com/Kf80cg3prT— Football Funnys (@FootballFunnys)September 27, 2014
As you could imagine, upon seeing said banner Ronaldo immediately stripped off his Real jersey - causing hundreds of women to faint in the stands - and waltzed off the pitch singing “Glory, Glory Man United” all the way to the dressing room. (Actually, he went on to score Real’s second goal, his eighth in three games).
