Newcastle ace Allan Saint-Maximin is planning to steal the show on Cristiano Ronaldo's highly-anticipated Manchester United homecoming this weekend.
Ronaldo is in line to make his second United debut against the Magpies on Saturday after leaving Juventus to re-sign for the club last week.
Millions of fans across the world will be keeping tabs on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's return, although it is not being broadcast live on UK television due to the traditional 3pm blackout.
Yet while all eyes will be on Ronaldo, Saint-Maximin, 24, is hoping to play more than a bit-part role by helping Newcastle spark a major upset at Old Trafford.
“I will try to do my best because I’m sure the world will watch this game because of Ronaldo," the French star said.
“But I know my quality. It will be a really hard game but I know what I can do so I think everyone will see what I can do on the pitch.
"Even before Ronaldo signed, they had a great team.

"If you give your best and give everything, everything can happen."

Manager Steve Bruce has come under fire at St James' Park, and Saint-Maximin is aware that they need to start winning again sooner rather than later.
