What Cristiano Ronaldo told Erik ten Hag about staying at Manchester United, is different from what the media said.
The future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United has generated a lot of discussion this summer.
He wanted to leave the club because of the lack of transfer activity and Champions League football, it was revealed back in early July.
His efforts to leave Manchester United were very public, and his agent Jorge Mendes appeared to be courting every elite club in Europe with an apparent offer of his services.
The club whose fans were most vocal about their dislike of Ronaldo and demanded that their club end their interest immediately, Atletico Madrid, were the most amenable to the offer.
Throughout the summer, Erik ten Hag has been the subject of numerous questions about the player, and he has admitted that Ronaldo hasn’t told him that he wants to leave the team.
He definitely responded when asked how he handles Cristiano Ronaldo’s “doesn’t want to be at the club” situation.
“You’re assuming that,” he said with a chuckle. “That isn’t what he is saying to me.”
“I deal with the players we have, we are happy with him this season and now we have to work on integrating him into the team,” he continued.
He needs to reach the proper levels of fitness before he can perform the duties we expect of him.”
Additionally, the striker might start the match against Brentford, according to the Dutch manager.
He responded on Friday when asked about the striker: “He had a good training week. He has now played two half-games; tomorrow, we will determine his starting lineup.
“I choose my course of action and keep it to myself.”
The club’s three new additions this summer have impressed the manager.
“Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez both performed admirably in the game against Brighton, and Tyrell Malacia did very well (against Atletico Madrid). That makes us very happy.
“We must uphold and uphold the high standards.”
Moreover, the player profiles we hope to recruit. Character is always a problem, of course. They must be competent and cohesive with the team.
“It’s normal for Man United to underperform and lose games. Because we must prevail, I would be more anxious if there was no panic. That is the requirement.
“However, I disagree that the appropriate word is panic. It sounds more like “come on, let’s do something.” We must act morally and think critically.
