Rangnick: Ronaldo’s injury is not serious

Manchester: Cristiano Ronaldo missed Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa in FA Cup on Monday with a muscle problem, but interim manager Ralph Rangnick said it was not a serious injury. United’s squad did not include Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire and Phil Jones, having participated in the defeat to Wolverhampton in the previous round of the English Premier League. Maguire and Jones are also injured but should return when they play at Aston Villa in championship next Saturday. On Ronaldo’s absence, Rangnick said on Monday: “I spoke to Cristiano yesterday before training and he told me he has had some problems in the last few days.” He added: “These are minor problems, but in the end we decided it was logical not to take any chances in a game that could easily stretch up to 120 minutes, so we decided to let him rest. “He continued:” He has some muscle problems in his upper leg. I don’t think it’s totally dangerous. “
