Ronaldo Watches United Draw
Cristiano Ronaldo could only watch on from the sidelines as Manchester United failed to put the ball in the back of the net - and were held in their opening day match against Newcastle.

His side's preparations were hit by the absence of striker Carlos Tevez, who flew home to Argentina following a family bereavement. That led to Fraizer Campbell making his first Premier League start for the club, leading the line with Wayne Rooney who had recovered from a virus.

It was a frantic start to the game, proper end-to-end start-of-the-season stuff, with the two Uniteds taking it in turns to launch an attack.

The Red Devils thought they should have had a penalty when Giggs' free-kick struck Milner on the hand, while Shay Given remarkably saved Campbell's point-blank header with his own head. Given made a magnificent double save too, from Rooney's low right-foot drive and then Paul Scholes' close-range follow-up.

Cristiano Ronaldo's big secret is out!

Just how do you become a brilliant footballer, with the fastest feet in the game, a body that most girls swoon over, score fantsatic goals, and win all those end-of-season Awards? Fitness coach Tony Strudwick reveals all.

"The modern player has a lot more asked of him and Cristiano is a top-class professional who is in impeccable shape. He is in the prime of his life and can handle it - we do all we can to give him the best opportunity to perform."

Ronaldo puts in up to six hours a day at United's training ground, but his work does not stop there. Strudwick added: "The one thing which differentiates Cristiano from a lot of players is that he has a plan.

"He approaches it like an individual athlete in athletics would. I call people like him high-performance players because you have to bang out three high-performance games in a week - for example Barcelona, Chelsea, Barcelona.

"Cristiano will be one of the first in every morning, he'll have his breakfast, making sure the nutritional elements are taken care of because he is fuelling his body. He'll start off by doing his strength work, then he has his training with us, then post-training when he'll work on certain areas of his game.

"It's a long day for him - he doesn't come in for a couple of hours and go home. He spends six hours working hard."

"He's quick, he's strong, he's got a fantastic muscle structure - he is also the consummate professional. You have got to be at the top of your game physically to play 60-plus matches.
