Ole Solskjaer Insists Cristiano Ronaldo Won’t Be Playing Every Game

Ole Solskjaer Insists on Cristiano Ronaldo

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that the Portugal football star would have to be careful with his workload. Cristiano Ronaldo debuted in a match against Newcastle back on Saturday 11th September 2021. According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ronaldo is expected not to play every match for the Red Devils as he looks forward to managing the center forward’s minutes.   

The Portuguese superstar had been in great form for Manchester United back in his last 2008-09 season at Old Trafford. He scored two goals as they beat Newcastle United 4-1 at Old Trafford last weekend. However, it seems like there are some concerns about him playing every game because of his age.

The 36-year-old forward will need some time off as we all know what kind of footballer he is. The Norwegian professional football manager doesn’t want to put any pressure on him. The club has seen how good he can be. If you could look at the number of goals he scores, he’s still scoring them at an incredible rate.

Cristiano Ronaldo To Participate in Champions League Match Against Young Boys

The Red Devils are expected to face Young Boys on Tuesday 14th September. After Cristiano Ronaldo made his first Manchester United debut vs. Newcastle United in the Premier League at Old Trafford, he has to play the next match ahead of the UEFA Champions League. Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisting he doesn’t have to play in every match, it is impossible to leave him out.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s latest incredible signing is the best Manchester United transfer since Sir Alex Ferguson. Manchester United has been linked with several key players to strengthen their squad ahead of the UEFA Champions League over recent weeks. 

Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo have raised everyone’s attention as winners of the last two European Championships. They have a lot to prove this year, but I think they will be able to do so. There is solid defense with Varane in their back four, and he has been doing a great job  over the past few years. He was voted best defender at Euro 2016 after helping France win the tournament. 

What Are Some of the Remarks from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held a press conference following his victory in the Premier League match at Old Trafford against Newcastle. The United boss reflected on the homecoming of Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored twice on his second debut for the club. He also speaks of how the player will need to rest and take care of himself ahead of their next challenge, the UEFA Champions League match against Young Boys on 14th September.

Solskjaer was asked if it’s possible to leave Ronaldo out after a double at Old Trafford against Newcastle United. “Cristiano Ronaldo has had a pre-season so he will recover quickly and we need to get everyone up and running,” the head coach said. He said that despite having loads of good players handling pressure, Manchester United players have to do it. 

There will be time and space for quality players like Ronaldo, Bruno, Mason Greenwood, and Jadon Sancho. Anthony Elanga and Jesse Lingard are also coming on. Edison Cavani is working to his full fitness and will be ready in a week or so. 

Young Boys to Host Manchester United on Tuesday Uefa Champions League Match

On Tuesday, Manchester United will be looking forward to making a perfect start to their 2021-22 Champions League campaign when they take on Young Boys in Switzerland. The Red Devils are currently in Group F featuring Villareal, Atalanta, and Young Boys. They will face Young Boys at St Jakob Park on Tuesday night after flying to Switzerland on Monday.

Solskjaer said that the sight of Raphael and Cristiano coming to Old Trafford had raised everyone’s eyebrows. He believes the two former Real Madrid plates are the key to help the team stay at the top. In midfield, Paul Pogba continues his perfect form from last season. Another new rival, Jadon Sancho, is coming into the group well and enjoys this kind of pressure. 

Another player to add to the scoresheet is Jesse Lingard, who returned to Old Trafford after a season loan spell at Westham. He showed his class after coming off the bench at the 66th minute scoring the fourth goal against Newcastle United during the injury time last Saturday. It seems the 28-year-old England Forward benefited a lot from his time away from Old Trafford.
