“Ronaldo’s absence gave Everton a boost,” says Sir Alex Ferguson

Cristiano Ronaldo not starting against Everton gave them all the boost and momentum, one should always start with their best player, questions Sir Alex Ferguson on Solskjaer’s decision for not starting the Portuguese star against Everton.

Manchester United on Saturday came with a surprising starting 11 because it did not consist of Ronaldo, Pogba and Jadon Sancho, it was clear by Ole Gunnar that it was a management decision as Manchester United just came off an as said by ole “physically and emotionally tiring game” just three days earlier. Even though Ronaldo came off the bench in the second half, and was up by 1 goal against Everton, Martial scored an in-swing on an assist of Bruno.

United have only won the last 2 of their 6 matches and frustration has set to begin under Ronaldo and the staff. Sir Alex, who has been there and won a whopping 13 Premier League titles was in the standings with none other than UFC legend himself Khabib.

Even Khabib points out how Ronaldo came in the 2nd half to which Scott replied, “Yeah I know… but you should always start with your best player,” reports Sky Sports.

Ronaldo who has scored 5 goals in the last 6 matchesΒ  was first signed byΒ  Furguson when he was just an 18-year-old kid at Sporting Lisbon, who was again a big part of why Ronaldo came back again to the Red Devils

Gary Neville says that Ronaldo’s frustrated walk-off at Old Trafford only puts pressure on Ole Gunnar. Neville on his recent podcast said, “Cristiano is smart enough to know actions like that will only bring more pressure towards the manager. He (Ronaldo) is not always going to score and maybe he can’t play every game. But if he is going to walk out like that, he is going to put immense pressure on Solskjaer.”
