Ten Hag advises Ronaldo to get fit, after missing preseason
Erik Ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, said that Cristiano Ronaldo could play in his style, but that the forward would need to get in better shape before he could show that he deserves to be on the team. Ronaldo didn’t go on United’s preseason trip to Thailand and Australia, and he also didn’t play in a friendly loss to Atletico Madrid. But on Sunday, he played 45 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano. Ten Hag told Sky Sports that he thinks the Portugal international can fit in with how he wants United to play. “But first, he needs to get in shape, because he just started.
“He’s a great football player, and he’s proven it so many times, but you can only be judged on what you are now, how you look and play now.” British media said that Ronaldo, who is 37, told the club he wanted to leave so he could play in the Champions League. This has led to a lot of talk about his future at United. This season, United will play in the second-tier Europa League. On Sunday, they will play Brighton & Hove Albion in the first game of the Premier League season.
