Legendary Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo only got off the bench as his team defeated arch adversary Liverpool in a Premier League matchup on Monday. Meanwhile, we know that Ronaldo\’s homecoming to United has been the internet\’s favorite topic for over a year now. However, there is still a heated argument about whether Ronaldo should be let go from Manchester United or not. In the midst of all this, a humorous video with the Portuguese, Garry Neville, Jamie Carragher, and Roy Keane surfaced on social media.
Jamie Carragher is one of the most well-known Liverpool players, while Neville and Keane are ex-Manchester United players. The trio is currently employed by Sky Sports as an analyst. Before the game began, Ronaldo stopped by to say hello to them while they were watching the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game as analysts. The United striker exchanged pleasantries with former Manchester United colleagues Neville and Keane but utterly ignored ex-Liverpool man Carragher. Since the event, there has been a lot of discussion on social media about Ronaldo\’s behavior toward Carragher. And some fans have even made humorous memes that summarize the situation.
Ronaldo was not included in United\’s starting lineup for the crucial game. In the footage, Keane can even be heard questioning Ronaldo about why he was benched for this important game. The 37-year-old responded, \”What do you want me to do? Over the years, Carragher has consistently criticized Ronaldo. Carragher also discussed ten Hag\’s choices to omit Harry Maguire, the club captain, and Cristiano Ronaldo. He predicted that those two would be extremely let down.
Maguire might only need to leave the firing line. Carragher mentioned, \”If I\’m being honest, I don\’t think ten Hag wants Ronaldo around the place. As soon as he\’s got options, he\’s put him on the bench. In two weeks time, I think he\’ll be gone.\” According to reports, Ronaldo desperately wants to leave United all summer. But a successful transfer hasn\’t happened yet. It remains to be seen whether or not something will occur regarding his future in the upcoming days.
Erik ten Hag Feels Cristiano Ronaldo Can Fit ManU!
Despite removing Cristiano Ronaldo for Monday\’s triumph against Liverpool at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag believes the striker still has a future at Manchester United. United shocked Jurgen Klopp\’s team with a 2-1 victory courtesy of goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford while leaving Cristiano Ronaldo on the sidelines. Ten Hag thinks Ronaldo can be assimilated into his system even though Sancho, Rashford, and Anthony Elanga previously formed a free-flowing front three.
Hag said, \”The whole of his career under several managers he did, several styles and systems. He always performed, so why can\’t he do this? His age is not an issue. If you are good enough and you\’re old and you still deliver performances, you are also good enough.\”
