One of the great blows of the past transfer market was the departure of Juventus from Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Manchester United, where he shone between 2003 and 2009. Despite his good start, the Portuguese forward is not satisfied with some decisions made by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who was his partner in his previous stint at the institution.

In the run-up to Saturday’s game against Leicester, the newspaper The Sun leaked details of the short circuit that kept CR7 with the technical director product of his substitution in the equality 1 to 1 against Everton on Old Trafford before leaving with his team to compete in the European Qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“Cristiano told him that he will tell him when he is not fit to play and that he wants to play in all league games. He also told him that he came here to win trophies and that United need to play with their most important players in every game. “added this person who works within the Manchester club.

Since his return to United, except in the clash of discord against Everton, Cristiano Ronaldo was a starter in all matches and only in the fall against Young Boys, for the Champions League, did he not play the 90 minutes (at 72 he was replaced by Jesse Lingard). In the 1 to 1 equality against the Liverpool team, he entered the Uruguayan Edinson Cavani in the absence of just over half an hour.

Once the duel was over, Cristiano left the playing field with visible expressions of annoyance on his face. Solskjaer, when asked about the Portuguese, tried to minimize what happened: “If you lose two points, as Cristiano felt at that time, it is natural. I don’t want my players to be happy with that situation. I spoke to him before the game, I spoke to him after the game, and he was ready to go in when he was called. Unfortunately, when we don’t win, Cristiano is not happy and that is the mentality he wants from all the players ”.
