Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes they are coping with the hype surrounding the return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Red Devils defeated Newcastle United 4-1 at the weekend in Ronaldo's first appearance since re-signing for the club.

Solskjaer's side went on to lose 2-1 in the Champions League to Young Boys on Tuesday, dampening some of the enthusiasm around the team.

Asked if things were settling following Ronaldo's arrival, Solskjaer told reporters, per the club website: "I think it's life as normal, we've signed a good player. There's always loads of attention around Cristiano, he copes with it and the players, they just get on with the job and cope with it as well.

"It was a big occasion of course last week with Newcastle, the excitement of the crowd and I thought we did really well, we handled the situation and of course Cristiano, as well, delivered."
