Sir Alex Ferguson seemed to have condemned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s choice to begin Cristiano Ronaldo on the seat for Manchester United’s draw with Everton.
Cristiano Ronaldo was warming the bench during last Saturday’s Old Trafford game and keeping in mind that Solskjaer brought him off the bench following 57 minutes, where the former Juvenstus star still could not effect any change.
Solskjaer was censured for not starting Cristiano Ronaldo, who has five awesome goals in six games since getting back to Old Trafford recently, and ex Manchester United manager Sir Ferguson has additionally denounced the strategic choice.
In a video posted on resigned MMA star Khabib’s Instagram, Sir Alex was seen addressing the Dagestani contender after the Old Trafford match, saying:
”But I also think that when they (Everton) saw that Ronaldo wasn’t playing, it was a bit…”
The retired MMA fighter replied; ”He came on in the second half.. but guess what, Sir Alex Ferguson dismissed that claim.
He rather had this to say; ”I know, but you should always start with your best players”.
Right after the last whistle, Ronaldo was seen raging down the tunnel in disappointment, while Solskjaer shielded his call to leave the former Real Madrid and Juventus playmaker to warm the bench for the first half.
Well, Ole also had this to say in his post-match press conference;
”You make decisions throughout a long, long season and you’ve got to manage the players workload. The decision was, for me, the correct one today.
Anthony Martial did well and scared a goal. Edinson needed minues and got an hours. We have to make those decisions sometimes.
With the result today, I understand they go away disappointed. We have started better than last season but it’s still not what we wanted.”
