English League: Ten Hag understands Ronaldo’s reaction after being substituted

Manchester v UK: Manchester United’s Dutch manager Eric Ten Hag expressed his understanding of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction after being substituted on Sunday in a goalless draw against Newcastle in English Premier League. On Sunday, Ronaldo played his first game as a starter following his humiliating 0-4 defeat to Brentford in August, but Ten Hag knocked him out 18 minutes before the end as part of his quest to reach Newcastle’s goal. . The Portuguese, who has won the Ballon d’Or for the best player in the world five times, looked completely shocked at the moment in which he left the pitch, but “I think no player would be happy to leave the pitch, especially Ronaldo”, according to Ten Hag on the eve of the extremely difficult match against Tottenham at Old Trafford ”. And the new coach of the “Red Devils” team saw that “as long as (the reaction) is in calm and natural way, no problem. Obviously he is convinced that he should keep playing and score a goal. That’s why he’s so good. ”Some United fans have put up in The decision to replace Ronaldo is doubtful, especially after his replacement, Marcus Rashford, lost a clear chance from a header that would have given his side victory in extra time. But Ten Hag believes his side didn’t have to wait for extra time to try to score, but rather denied Ronaldo a goal in the opening minutes of the second half. Ronaldo felt he had not made a mistake and had the right to play the ball in goal after Switzerland’s Fabian Char moved it to his goalkeeper Nick Pope, who didn’t lift a finger. But referee Craig Pawson was raising his hand to indicate an indirect free kick, in waiting for the doorman Bob. And the English Football Association has opened an investigation against some United players who surrounded Pawson to protest his cancellation of the goal, while Ronaldo received a yellow card. Ten Hag heard that his players didn’t attack the referee, explaining: “I have to say I don’t think they were (objections) very strong. She wasn’t very aggressive but I don’t know exactly what’s going on. in field because I was so far away. “” I saw again what happened in the video, “he said. There was a touch from the Newcastle player (Shar moving the ball towards his goalkeeper). It was absolutely clear and they (United players) went to the referee to ask for information. ” Ronaldo is also expected to start the game on Wednesday, especially as Frenchman Anthony Martial is not ready to return in squad, which will likely bring Denmark’s Christian Eriksen back to participate against his former team.
