Cristiano Ronaldo told Manchester United manager to demote English international Harry Maguire – Revealed.
The club management of Manchester United was informed by Cristiano Ronaldo that Harry Maguire needed to be “demoted” as a result of his recent underperformance.
Last season, Cristiano Ronaldo spoke with former Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick to request that Harry Maguire be benched.
Last season, there were frequent reports of conflicts within the Old Trafford dressing room regarding leadership, management, and training. Even though it may be argued that the Red Devils’ placement in the Europa League positions was justified given how terrible their season had been.
It is now being asserted that Ronaldo was at the center of the grievances at United, having approached the team’s headquarters to lay blame for the team’s difficulties on teammate Maguire. The 37-year-old reportedly approached Rangnick in February and informed him that “Maguire is part of the problem.”
Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba, two prominent French players, were also present and eager to share their opinions with the interim manager.
Despite being the club captain, Ronaldo believed that the England international should be “demoted” to the bench because of his recent poor performance.
Rangnick, who was anxious to handle the situation properly, informed Maguire that it was “wrong” to have conversations regarding Maguire when he was not even aware of or participated in them. Later, some in the cohort expressed regret about the impromptu gathering.
Ronaldo was not afraid to express his opinions on other issues as well, telling Rangnick that he preferred playing in a striking duo rather than as the lone No. 9. The Portugal international sketched out the lineup he would prefer to use and stated that Edinson Cavani should start beside him, but his ideas were ignored.
