Former footballer Marco Van Basten has advised new Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hagi to keep Cristiano Ronaldo in the lead.
Further, Ajax’s coach has already been announced as the next helmsman at Old Trafford, and there is a long list in the press of sources including Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata and Lee Grant at the end of their contract. Nemanja Matic has already announced her departure.
As United appear to be on their way to securing a place in next season’s Champions League – they are sixth, six points in 4th place – Ronaldo’s future on the team began to be questioned, and rumors about it being the national team captain. would not be part of Dutch plans.
But Van Basten believes in a happy partnership. “If Ronaldo continues to play like he did against Norwich, for example [hat-trick] He scores a goal on a regular basis, he doesn’t have to be removed from the team. He’s an individualistic player, but as long as he shows results, it has to happen. Tem Hag knows he can’t ask the same as an 18-year-old. Of course, Ronaldo has to work hard, but I see Ten Hagi have enough influence on him to make him play the way he wants. I give Erik advice: don’t look at what the press says when you start. You need to focus tremendously on work, practice, and team. If you do, you can change everything in United. Rondo Show.
