Alex Telles has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo was "upset" with his Manchester United team-mates before scoring a dramatic last-gasp winner against Villarreal in the Champions League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side found themselves a goal behind after Paco Alcacer gave the visitors a surprise lead at Old Trafford, before Telles drew them level with a spectacular finish from outside the box.
That's how it stayed until the last minute of injury time when Ronaldo popped up to score his fifth goal in as many matches to hand United an important first win in the Champions League this season.
However, Telles revealed that Ronaldo had been left frustrated with the lack of service he received throughout the game.
"So, it was the first time I play with him," Telles told 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.
How many goals will Ronaldo score this season? Let us know in the comments section.
"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."
Telles was proved right as Ronaldo came to the rescue and United returned to winning ways after back-to-back defeats.
Victory also eased the pressure on Solskjaer, who has faced question marks over his position following a run of poor results.
