Despite the Portuguese superstar’s desire to leave Manchester United, Erik ten Hag is not worried about Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence at Brighton. The Portuguese star has expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford for a more exciting challenge in the Champions League. In fact, it is crucial to ten Hag’s system for the Portuguese to have Ronaldo in his team.
Erik ten Hag is not worried about Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence at Brighton Premi
Erik ten Hag is not worried about the lack of Cristiano Ronaldo for Brighton. The Portuguese international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer. After a year at Juventus, the Portuguese international returned to the Premier League on transfer deadline day. The former Manchester United player has expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford and play in Europe’s elite competition. Chelsea are the frontrunners in the race to sign the Portuguese forward, while Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also linked with him.
The Portuguese star was the top scorer for Manchester United last season, but his absence at the weekend has sparked a debate about whether he is suitable for a more pressing style. However, ten Hag explained that he would base his style on the players available to him, rather than on how Ronaldo would suit the system. The Portuguese forward has been a regular in United’s pre-season, and he is confident he will adjust to the press at Brighton.
The Portuguese international is currently away on international duty, and Erik ten Hag hasn’t given the Portugal international any special permission to jet off on honeymoon. But the manager did give Harry Maguire special permission to fly off on honeymoon – and he gave that permission to all his other players on Nations League duty. But Ronaldo won’t be able to take his honeymoon this year – he will miss it!
As a Manchester United coach, Erik ten Hag is not concerned about Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence at the Premier League game against Aston Villa. Despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has missed the United pre-season tour and has been missing training with the squad, the Portuguese boss has backed him and said that the Portuguese forward will be fit for the start of the new season.
The Portuguese star wants to leave Old Trafford
After a year at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag has made a surprising admission about Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese midfielder has admitted that he would like to work with the Manchester United legend. With Manchester United in need of power, agility, and charisma, he is a prime candidate for a new challenge. It would be disastrous if Ronaldo left the club before it finished its season.
It is not hard to believe that a former Manchester United player would have expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford. Several players have been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, including Manchester United’s superstar. But the Portuguese international is still under contract at Old Trafford. The club’s executive has insisted that Ronaldo will not leave the club until at least the end of this season. And they are not the only club interested in Ronaldo.
The Portuguese midfielder has admitted that he only thinks about Manchester United this season. He wants to surround himself with a new team for next season. But the Portuguese will be 38 by the time the new campaign starts and he is unlikely to play three or four games a week for the remainder of the season. Nevertheless, he does not appear to be concerned with Ronaldo’s ability to press in this situation.
In spite of all the speculation surrounding the Portuguese’s future, his arrival coincided with the worst Premier League season in the club’s history. They finished sixth in the table. Ten Hag, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson, wanted to hold onto Ronaldo for his new reign at Old Trafford. Although he had initially hoped to retain the Portuguese international, he has since come to the realization that it would be better to lose him. But he did not say whether or not he would have stayed at Old Trafford, but he has made a shocking admission.
Having Ronaldo in his team is crucial to ten Hag’s system
Having Ronaldo in his team is important to the way Erik ten Hag’s system works, according to the manager of Manchester United. The Portuguese international has been linked with a move to Barcelona, but has been granted leave to remain with his family. Ten Hag, however, is confident that he will continue to work with the former Real Madrid forward in the future. He says that he looks forward to working with Ronaldo this season and in the coming years.
Having Ronaldo in the team would be difficult for Ten Hag, however. The Portuguese is very keen to play every single game and Ten Hag would struggle to accommodate him. As such, the Dutchman would have to look for a young striker in the hope of creating a solid foundation for the future. The manager will not be afraid to risk his talisman, however, as he has proven this time and again. Recently, he started 20-year-old Brian Brobbey over Sebastian Haller, who had scored 33 goals for PSV Eindhoven.
The Portuguese manager is confident that his squad can exploit Ronaldo’s aerial superiority and his ability to score goals. The Dutchman’s system aims to make the opposition play with high intensity and use the width of the pitch to press opponents. Ronaldo’s ability to press opponents is a key element in ten Hag’s system, but it needs to be reformulated to accommodate the Portuguese. The Portuguese striker has no problem scoring goals, but his presence in the team will help his team win games.
Ten Hag has been advised to bring Ronaldo to the Netherlands by former Manchester United teammate John O’Shea. Although Ronaldo’s absence could mean a fresh start for a new manager, it would leave Ten Hag with a huge challenge. He would lose a key source of goals, but in exchange would gain more balance and stability. In addition, it would give him the freedom he’s long sought.
Ronaldo wants to continue playing in Europe’s top competitions
The Portuguese star is reportedly unhappy that he will not be playing for Manchester United in the Champions League next season. The Portuguese winger is obsessed with playing in Europe’s top competition. As a result, his representatives have already spoken to various European clubs about his future. However, Erik ten Hag’s admission as a Brighton Premi manager has raised further speculation.
During the off-season, it was revealed that the Portuguese star has held private talks with Manchester United’s players about his future. According to the Portuguese winger, he is aiming to join the Red Devils in the next 12 months. This move is reportedly in the interest of United, as they are trying to find a replacement for the Portuguese forward. Antony, who previously worked with Ronaldo at Ajax, has also been linked with a move to Manchester United.
In addition to that, the Italian winger was rumoured to be looking to leave the club in the summer, but he has been unhappy at the lack of transfer business since his return. However, ten Hag has also made a surprising admission in the Brighton Premi press conference. Although, he has not been able to secure Ronaldo’s services in the summer, he does plan to bring in new players during the next transfer window.
The Portuguese forward has been given permission to miss the Brighton tour, but he is not yet available. Ten Hag is unsure when Ronaldo will be available to play again, but has not ruled him out for the start against Brighton in his pre-season debut. The Portuguese international scored 24 goals in all competitions last season. Next in line was Mason Greenwood with six goals.
Manchester United need Ronaldo now more than ever
The former Manchester United star has revealed that he has privately spoken with fellow international and club teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in the off-season. Although United want to keep Ronaldo for at least the next year, the Portuguese international has shown that he is not inspiring in the Premier League. That is a shocking admission from the Brighton Premi boss. However, the Argentine may be the right man to take over from Ronaldo.
According to reports, Erik ten Hag is keen on working with the Portuguese international. He has previously worked under Ronaldo at Ajax and will likely replicate that same style. The coach’s desire to play with a goal scorer may also have something to do with it. Ronaldo was the top scorer for the club last season, scoring 24 goals across all competitions. His team mates Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood were next with six goals each.
But is a move to the Premier League right for Ronaldo? The Argentine’s position remains unclear as he is under contract at Manchester United until next summer. Erik ten Hag will want to make sure he can fit Ronaldo into the team’s system. Other Argentine managers like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick have failed to do so. And as a winger, he needs to find the right personnel around him to ensure a productive team. Moreover, the duo have previously expressed their desire to work together.
Erik ten Hag is also keen to keep Cristiano Ronaldo for the next year. He said he is “very happy” to be staying at Manchester United. However, the winger added that a move to Manchester United would not mean that Ronaldo would stay at the club in the coming season. Moreover, he would be able to help the club rebound from its poor season in 2021/22.
