Cristiano Ronaldo does have some conscience about scoring goals against opposing teams. It was discovered after the legendary footballer sent Piers Morgan a message to express his regret for having hit a brace against Arsenal.

United pulled off a remarkable 3-2 win against the Gunners in early December. Ronaldo was the one to score twice, securing all three points.

Morgan made a connection with Ronaldo during an interview he did with him for his Life Stories series, and decided to contact the Portuguese star before the fixture.
