Ronaldo warned about challenges he will face at Man Utd

Man Utd vs Newcastle: Protocols can’t Change because of Ronaldo – Jordan speaks on TV blackout

Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan has said that even though the 3pm football blackout is outdated it should not be changed now simply because of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the Premier League.
