Erik ten Hag may ignore Cristiano Ronaldo advice from Man Utd insiders after his hat-trick | Football | Sport


Erik ten Hag may ignore Manchester United insiders’ advice about Cristiano Ronaldo after the blockbuster star scored a Premier League hat-trick against Norwich on Saturday. The Red Devils are widely expected to announce Ten Hag as their new manager.

United signed Ronaldo for a second time last summer after they managed to prise him away from Juventus. And the 37-year-old has found the back of the net 21 times in 35 games.

But his impact on the team has come into question at times this campaign due to his low-intensity style of play and his propensity to throw strops. According to the Daily Mail, some at the club feel Ronaldo should be encouraged to leave as he will be unsuited to the pressing style Ten Hag wishes to impose. But Ten Hag himself has yet to decide.

United insiders will apparently advise Ten Hag that Ronaldo’s unique personality and demands haven’t endeared him to all his team-mates at Old Trafford. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the incoming boss will get rid of the ace.

But Ronaldo had the final say as he found the back of the net with a free-kick to ensure United bagged all three points.

And following the match, Ronaldo took to social media to give his thoughts on his hat-trick. “Very happy with this win and for getting us back on track in the Premier League,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

“Like I said before, individual achievements are only worth it when they help us reach our goals as a team, and the 60th hat-trick in my career is so much more important because it brought us the 3 points. Well done, lads, tremendous effort from everyone. We’re not giving up, we’re fighting until the end!”
