Pressure from the Superstar: After the messed-up season, Cristiano Ronaldo formulated clear goals for himself and his club Manchester United, as reported by “ManchesterEveningNews”. The Reds would like to keep the Portuguese. But that will only be possible if the club plays for titles in the medium term. “I don’t want to be at a club that’s fighting for sixth, seventh or fifth place,” said the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in an interview five months ago. That nightmare has now come true.
seventh place? But the 37-year-old has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford. After failing to qualify for the Champions League, United could even be relegated to the Europa Conference League on the final matchday as West Ham are just two points behind them in the table. After second place last year, there is even a risk of seventh place in the current season.
Excited: Ronaldo still has high hopes for new coach Erik ten Hag. The veteran has hinted he is “thrilled” by the Dutchman’s arrival, while Ten Hag had made it clear he would like to keep the former Real Madrid star. But Manchester’s way back to the top is a long-term one – the question remains whether Ronaldo will have the patience for it at his age.
