Erik ten Hag would indeed be experienced enough to study Sir Alex Ferguson’s book for the next few days. As he mulls over what he can do over Cristiano Ronaldo, one line, in particular, should jump out.
In The Autobiography, Sir Alex said that when players think he is bigger than any club or manager, they don’t have a place in the club.
If Ferguson hasn’t already hand-handed this message to the team’s new coach, Ten Hag, after interfering in the recent conflict between the club and the player, it would be astonishing – and unpredictable.
Given Ten Hag’s most recent remarks, it seems Ronaldo may have finally found the end of his rope, wherever it may be.
Ronaldo and other players’ public criticism for leaving the team early during the preseason match against the Spanish league team Rayo Vallecano last weekend should have inspired every United fan. Ten Hag needs to strike the whip before he can get United back on track.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Petulance Is Unbearable; Manchester United Might Show Him The Door:
To call Ronaldo’s rebellious behavior “unacceptable” would be an understatement. To further benefit Manchester United, Ten Hag could ask the football board to make it possible for Ronaldo to leave on free if needed. Even though it’s ultimately what Ronaldo wants, doing this won’t be seen as a sign of weakness.
By taking advantage of the opportunity, Ten Hag may let the team know that he wants Ronaldo gone and that he will not put up with their lack of discipline. Keeping Cristiano Ronaldo could only worsen the issue and the unwelcome soap opera.
Cristiano Ronaldo has acted and handled like, even though he is something more than his coach and has acted like he is even greater than the club since his comeback.
Of course, none of this is a Ten Hag’s creation. An incredibly challenging and unwanted present has welcomed him from Ajax. Ronaldo is still around due to United’s error in bringing him back a year ago.
