EPL: I'll do it again - Ralf Rangnick tells Cristiano Ronaldo

8 months ago 177

Manchester United boss, Ralf Rangnick, has told Cristiano Ronaldo to get ready to be subbed off more often than before for the interest of the team and other players.

The Premier League clash between Manchester United and Brentford ended with a 3-1 victory for the Red Devils with Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford appearing on the score sheet.

Ronaldo was furious after he was substituted for Marcus Rashford in the 70th minute and questioned the manager’s decision to take him off.

Rangnick was seen whispering to the Portuguese and trying to calm him after he was demanding, “Why me, why did you take me off?”

Speaking with reporters after the game, Rangnick explained, “When we scored the third goal I said exactly that to him. I said, ‘look, Cristiano, I understand that you are still ambitious and you want to score yourself.

“Maybe in a couple of years when you are a head coach yourself and hopefully you’ll make the same decision, be in the same role that I was in today after 75 minutes.

“For the future, it’s just important for any player that we win games, this is first.

“… Having players like Marcus and Anthony Martial on the bench, why should I not make use of that? That’s why I would always do it[Sub off Ronaldo]again in a situation like that.”
