‘Ronaldo will not play every Premier League game’ – says Solskjaer
Ronaldo’s return has raised the expectation levels on this Red Devils team to land a Premier League title for the first time since 2013
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly revealed that he might have to rest Cristiano Ronaldo in some of the Premier League games.
The Red Devils boss admits that Ronaldo is still on form and he never stops scoring but he still insists that the ex-Real Madrid star will be rested in some of the matches in order to get the best out of the veteran superstar.
The 36-year-old scored twice on his second Manchester United debut in Saturday’s 4-1 rout of Newcastle.
“Cristiano looks after himself so much so I know he will recover quickly.
“He has had a pre-season and of course, it’s important that we get everyone up and running and to get him up and running and to give him 90 minutes.
“It’s not impossible to leave him out. He is 36, Mason is 19, so it’s the same.
“Of course there is a game on Tuesday. We will see what we do.” Solskjaer said.
The player himself and the fans will demand he is in the starting 11 every game — starting with that match tomorrow away to RSC Young Boys in the Champions League.
Ronaldo’s return has raised the expectation levels on this Red Devils team to land a Premier League title for the first time since 2013.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added that:
“Handling the pressure is one of the things that you have to do as a Manchester United player, expectations and pressure, you’ve got to relish it and embrace it and enjoy it — and Cristiano does.”
