Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo is available for their crucial Premier League fixture against Tottenham on the weekend. Rangnick also admitted that he was not sure whether the forward was happy at the club. He missed the Manchester Derby due to a hip injury. Roy Keane was not buying the injury news after his absence from the game.
“He resumed training yesterday. He trained the whole training session and I expect him to be in training today as well,” Ralf Rangnick said about Cristiano Ronaldo. “He trained well so I would’ve thought he’s available for tomorrow. Well, I don’t know, I haven’t asked him if he’s happy at Manchester and at this club. For me, it’s important that he’s fit again and that he resumed training yesterday. We will see with which formation and with which line-up we are going to play the game tomorrow.”
“With regard to players, we will still miss out on Luke Shaw. Until yesterday he’s still been testing positive for Covid,” he added. “Scotty is a question mark. He had some problems with his calf so we have to wait and see until today after training. But right now I think it’s more likely he will not be available because if we risk him tomorrow he will more likely be out for the game on Tuesday again. That’s why I tend to with some muscular issues, even more so if it’s the calf muscle, to be careful.”
