Cristiano Ronaldo heads back to Manchester United training ground

Cristiano had been offered a compassionate break by Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived in Manchester United’s training field for the very first time following the devastating death of his baby boy. Shortly after the demise of his baby son, the attacker was given on temporary compassionate break and was not available for Tuesday’s setback to Liverpool, that his family conveyed their pleasure after an overwhelming love from both away and home followers. 

On Wednesday, United handed back to training, and Ronaldo was observed arriving at the venue. Per Samuel luckhurst, the 37-year-old was involved in a full sesh with the remainder of his teammates before departing. The sad news was verified on Monday by the Portuguese world-class player and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, who characterised their newborn baby boy as an “angel” and then said their baby daughter was giving them “strength” midst of the emotional trauma.

There is no confirmation on whether Ronaldo will fly to Arsenal on Saturday, with United declaring that he will be granted as much space as he wants to protect himself and his family. He did not perform in the 4-0 setback to Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday when both squads of players donned black armbands and crowds chanted for a minute to express solidarity for him and his family.

United was hammered 4-0 by Liverpool on Tuesday without Cristiano Ronaldo. For Ralf Rangnick’s men, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga went in attack, but neither of them emerged. In 16 career outings versus Arsenal, Ronaldo has netted eight goals and produced two assists. His last encounter with Arsenal was in December when he scored twice in a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.
