The only alternative in coach Erik ten Hag’s plans, Cristiano Ronaldo had the chance to show himself against Real Sociedad (0-1 defeat) on Thursday in the Europa League. But the Manchester United striker remained silent. Even worse, the Portuguese has shown worrying signs of the end of his career.
Cristiano Ronaldo may not have come close to returning to the 11 for Manchester United. No doubt due to his desires elsewhere, the 37-year-old forward has lost a good part of his physical preparation. His long absence obviously upset coach Erik Ten Hag, who built his model team without the Portuguese. Hence, CR7 players have started meetings since his return on the bench. There is no indication that the situation will change in the coming weeks.
Ronaldo looks old…
On the contrary, Cristiano Ronaldo has not been able to score yet. Founded against Real Sociedad on Thursday in the Europa League, the five-time Ballon d’Or was not in his favour. The former Real Madrid player even alarmed consultant Steve Nicholl, who was shocked by Manconian’s physical limitations. ” I’ll be honest, when we talk about the game, the only thing that comes to mind is Cristiano Ronaldo who will appear alone against the goalkeeper and who has been caught by two opponents. The former Liverpool player said on ESPN.
” It’s the kind of thing I can’t forget. And there were others. He had other chances, not as straightforward as this, but something was missingScotsman criticized. That’s what comes to mind when I think of this game. There wasn’t a huge gap between the two teams, and there weren’t many chances in the match. But that’s the only thing I can think of. The fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is in perfect shape and everyone knows that he is 36 and 37 years old. His physical condition has long been praised in relation to his age, the Red Devil is in decline more than ever.
