Manchester United welcomes Arsenal this Sunday (5:30 p.m.) as part of the 6th day of the Premier League. Cristiano Ronaldo, relegated to the substitutes’ bench in the last three games, will he regain his starting place? One thing is certain, the Portuguese international will have to fall into line…
After a particularly turbulent summer transfer window with no favorable outcome, Cristiano Ronaldo finds himself in a particularly delicate situation with the Red Devils. Announced in several European clubs in recent weeks, CR7 has finally stayed in the north of England and will at least partially honor his last year of contract. Less than three months from the World Cup in Qatar, the situation of the former Madridista is not simple but his strength of character and his professionalism have remained intact.
Ten Hag’s Warning
At present, the Manchester United striker is no longer seen as a first choice in the minds of his coach Erik ten Hag. “Making decisions requires following your instincts, feelings and emotions, but I have to be rational and strategic if we want to take Manchester in the right direction. I have to be clinical and ask myself what is best for the club, for the team. What makes it progress. I have to be transparent, clear and communicate”first confided the Dutch technician during an interview with Sky Sports before delivering a message to his player. “Now he has to adapt to the way we play. If he does, he will make the difference thanks to his qualities”he warned.
A golden opportunity for Ronaldo?
Before this match against the Gunners, CR7 has still not shaken the net and has no assists this season in five appearances. The main interested party knows he is expected in the big matches and could get everyone to agree in the event of XXL performances against the London club.
