Manchester United performed poorly, losing 6-3 in the derby to rivals Man City. With a trio from Erling Haaland and one from Phil Foden, the Citizens swept Ten Hag’s men despite goals from Anthony and Martial.
If the Red Devils are enraged after this humiliation, there is one more man: Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese, who is going through a complicated moment, was put on the bench from the start. But very quickly, Ten Hag’s team took the water and conceded 4 goals before the end of the first half. The Dutch technician sends Ronaldo as well as Casemiro to warm up.
After returning from the dressing room, Brazilian midfielder Tin Hag fired and curiously asked Ronaldo to reclaim his place on the bench. In front of the five-a-side Ballon d’Or, the former Ajax coach introduced another No. 9: Anthony Martial, a decision that does not seem to satisfy Ronaldo, who at the moment is relegated to third place in the number 9 hierarchy of Man United.
“Manager Eric Ten Hag goes to the bench and decides not to bring Ronaldo, but to replace Marcus Rashford with Martial. The camera zoomed in on the Portuguese hero and I saw him have a stone face and look shocked. In the caption, Gary Neville said, “His face says it all.”, Sun Books.
Anyway, Anthony Martial rewarded Ten Hag’s confidence by scoring two goals.
