Ten Haag Believes in Ronaldo

 By Editor

Manchester United manager Erik ten Haag a Central defender in his playing days is optimistic Cristiano Ronaldo can defy the age barrier to help the club excel this season.

Speaking on the back of Monday night’s 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford, the Dutch tactician said the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has excelled under several coaches and would do the same under his watch.

“I think he (Ronaldo) can adapt, and in his whole career and under several managers, he did. Several styles and systems He always performed. Why can’t he do this? “Ten Haag told Sky Sports after Ronaldo played a cameo role against Liverpool as an 86th minute replacement for Marcus Rashford.

He continued: “His age is not an issue. If you are young, you are good enough, and when you are old, you still deliver the performance, you are also good enough.
We have to act as a team, and every individual, every day, has to give their best. That is the demand for the manager and also for the team.

“The demand is for everyone, including the manager. We have to deliver. You have an obligation to the club, to the fans. This is a massive club with a huge fanbase, and we have to deliver that. “

After assuring Ten Haag he would stay at the club for another season, Ronaldo opted out of the club’s pre-season, feigning family issues. He suddenly composed a song about wanting to play in the Champions League.The Portuguese superstar’s search for suitors has so far ended in futility, having been turned down by Chelsea, PSG, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and Napoli.

Ronaldo has featured in every one of the side’s three Premier League matches and played 131 minutes, being selected in the starting XI in one of these and being predominantly used off the bench as a substitute on two occasions.

He played in 30 Premier League games last season for Manchester United, scoring 18 goals and providing three assists.
Ronaldo’s desire to leave may not be unconnected to the club’s initial inactivity in the summer transfer window, but the Red Devils have since added Tyrell Malacia, Lissandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, and Casemiro to their ranks and are also looking to sign more players before the closure of the window.
