Manchestereveningnews has it that the last time Cristiano Ronaldo played in the Europa League, it was still called the UEFA Cup and nobody outside of Portugal had yet heard of Jose Mourinho or Ronaldo, for that matter.Information Guide Nigeria
The then 17-year-old’s sojourn into Europe’s B-list competition lasted two games and an aggregate defeat to Partizan Belgrade in September 2002.

A month earlier Ronaldo had made his Champions League debut against Inter Milan, with Sporting losing that tie as well, which is why they dropped into the UEFA Cup. On August 14, 2002, Ronaldo was up against Javier Zanetti and Christian Vieri and neither had yet turned 30.JAMB Result

United’s failure to qualify for next season’s competition has left Ronaldo on the outside looking in, but so far there has been no indication he wants to leave Old Trafford despite the absence from the Champions League and the inevitable knock-on effects that means the Ballon d’Or will be out of reach.
According to manchestereveningnews, the 37-year-old has at least one more year left on his United contract and, if he remains at the club as expected, then he will be a big part of Erik ten Hag’s plans for next season. The Dutchman has already labelled his centre-forward a “giant” and United will surely rely on his goals once again.
