Harry Kane equalized the score for Tottenham with a penalty, but Ronaldo, 37, put Manchester United in front again before the end of the first half, and then completed his three goals to give Manchester United the victory after Harry Maguire scored an own goal by his team, giving Tottenham a equaliser.

Ronaldo wrote on his account on "Instagram" after his first "hat-trick" in the Premier League since January 2008 against Newcastle, "I am very happy with my first hat-trick since returning to Old Trafford again. Nothing beats the feeling of returning to the field and helping the team with goals and effort." .

"We've proven once again that we can beat any team any day, as long as we work hard and stand together as one man. There are no limits to Manchester United! No matter what happens! Let's go, Devils!"

Praises showered on Ronaldo

Rangnick was dumbfounded by Ronaldo's performance and joked that Ronaldo should come back to Portugal a lot.

"He certainly made the difference with his three goals, but not just with the three," said the interim Manchester United coach. "It was his best performance, at least since I arrived, in terms of possession."

He added, "I think that the team as a whole showed the reaction that we expected to show, after the bad second half at Al-Ittihad Stadium. And returning to lead again after two draws showed the mentality of the team today."

"We should have won!"

"We were joking a little bit, maybe it makes sense to send him to Portugal for 3 days, and after that we don't involve him in training for two days and then we put him in training on Thursday," Rangnick added.

"By the way, he showed the same level of performance in training on Thursday. So after this training, even though he was away for a week, I decided to put him in the game from the start. Maybe we should do that for the rest of the season."

The loss was a painful blow to Tottenham's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, and Tottenham coach Antonio Conte also praised Ronaldo.

"It was a great performance by Cristiano," he said. "Unfortunately, I know him well, so what he did was not a surprise to me."

"We are talking about a player with Lionel Messi, they are the best in the world in my opinion. We are talking about a decisive player, and at the moment his team needs him, he is present."

"Of course, a big congratulations to him, because at this age he is giving this performance. With this mentality, and the desire to win, you just have to give a big congratulations to your opponent."

Both are legends in their game ⚽️🏈
