Cristiano Ronaldo received a rapturous ovation on his return to Old Trafford as Real Madrid toppled Manchester United in the Champions League last night.
But he might be less pleased with the merchandise on sale outside the Theatre of Dreams – because it makes him look like Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Doppelganger: This United fans' scarf (left), on sale before last night's Champions League exit to Real Madrid, looks more like Luis Suarez – the hitman for arch-rivals Liverpool – than the former Old Trafford hero
A scarf meant to depict the former United favourite is a dead ringer for United’s arch rivals’ talisman Suarez, complete with No 7, which Ronaldo shares with the Uruguayan.
Ronaldo scored the winner in Madrid’s 2-1 win, and displayed his love for his previous employers by not celebrating his goal.
He was even looking glum at the airport this morning and apologised for knocking his former club out of the competition.

The fans responded by celebrating their former hero’s return last night, holding up banners calling for him to move back to Old Trafford.
Whether anyone bought this scarf, though, for fear of being outed as a closet Kopite, is unknown.
