The Jamaican told the BBC: “Cristiano demands a lot, so he will demand a lot from these players and it will only make them better.
“He’s on a different level, he is a machine.
“I think he will play until he’s 42 because he will always be so fit and on a higher level to a lot of the younger players because of the work he puts in and the dedication he has.”
Bolt won’t have been disappointed by what he saw.
After Paco Alcacer gave Villarreal a deserved lead, Alex Telles equalised with a stunning volley.
As United pushed and pushed for a winner, it looked like they would have to settle for a point.
But then Ronaldo popped up in the 95th minute to fire home and send Old Trafford crazy.
