Gary Neville: Cristiano Ronaldo can have part to play under Erik ten Hag


Gary Neville: Cristiano Ronaldo

Gary Neville believes that Cristiano Ronaldo can have a substantial part to play at Manchester United next season under Erik ten Hag. He believes that his goal-scoring prowess can make up for any issues with his defensive game. Ronaldo moved into the second position on the goal-scoring charts level with Son Heung-Min. He recently scored two important goals against Arsenal and Chelsea.

“He lifts the fans, he gets them on the edge of their seats, takes his chances, and it’ll be really interesting to see what happens with Erik Ten Hag. We know he plays with an aggressive press, he tries to win the ball high up the pitch, that isn’t Cristiano’s strong point and we know that. But he will want a goalscorer. He will want someone who can put the ball in the back of the net 20 or 25 times,” Gary Neville said about Cristiano Ronaldo. “Can Manchester United use him as a bridge next season to get them through Erik Ten Hag’s first season? Ronaldo is a phenomenon. He’s achieved everything and more in the game, his professionalism is beyond anything you could ever wish for, really.”

“He still continues – his persistence, his determination to score goals is absolutely incredible. You can’t speak highly enough of him, his goal tonight was wonderful and he doesn’t really lose that belief in himself when the rest of the team is really lacking in confidence – his is still there,” he added. “He’s a sensation, an absolute sensation. I talked about the attitude of the players in the first half and I wasn’t really talking about him, he’s proven over a long period of time and what he’s doing, the shape of his body, and the recovery from the tragedy only last week to still perform.”
