The future of Cristiano Ronaldo was defined

The novel came to an end. After the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the passage of Ralf Rangnick through the bench, the arrival of the Dutch coach Erik Ten Hag at the Manchester United bench was finally officially announced, who won practically everything with Ajax and now hopes to reverse the situation in which are the Red Devils.

During his presentation, the coach spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo, who was widely speculated about his possible departure in the next transfer market that will begin in early July.

During his first press conference as United manager, Ten Hag made clear his position on the 37-year-old Portuguese star’s continuation: “Of course I’m counting on him. Of course he is in my plans. We have a plan and we must put it into action. Cristiano can give goals, but first I spoke with him before doing it with you”.

The Portuguese signed a bond with the English team until June 30, 2023 and, with the latest statements from the new coach, everything suggests that he will continue to be linked to the institution at least until the end of his contract. His new goals will be to fight to take the local championship from Manchester City and play a great role in the Europa League.

It should be noted that the Red Devils have not won the Premier League since 2013, Alex Ferguson’s last season on the bench. They have also gone five years without lifting a trophy, the last ones being the Europa League and the 2016-17 League Cup.
