Rangnick says strange things about Ronaldo’s future

19 Apr 2022 | 14:04 | News

The Portuguese scored an impressive hat-trick in the Premier League to help his side win 3-2.

The 37-year-old hero has already led the team to victory and kept them hopeful in next season’s Champions League as Arsenal and Tottenham both struggled earlier in the day .

Following this victory, the Red Devils have moved up to fifth and are now just three points behind Tottenham with six games remaining this season. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo contributed all the headlines to the epic, scoring a second consecutive hat-trick at Old Trafford. He scored twice in the first half to give the team an easy lead. But Norwich struggled to tie the score at 2-2.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner then ended the game with a free-kick from outside the box and an unstoppable shot into the far corner.

Ronaldo’s form has clearly declined since the start of the year, but against Norwich he proved his potent potential, sending the crowded Canaries into the net.

There are also rumours that he could leave due to difficulties in front of goal and a string of poor results for United this season.

Coach Rangnick had to question Ronaldo’s future in the team after Saturday’s game, but said it was entirely up to the players themselves: “In the end, it’s not my decision. Cristiano has one year left on his contract. It’s the decision of the new leadership and the leadership of the team. Ronaldo is a great striker, but the future depends on how the coach uses it.

Eric Ten Haag looks set to succeed Rangnick as Manchester United’s new manager next season, with multiple sources claiming he does not want to see the Portuguese star in his plans.

With an amazing hat-trick, Cristiano Ronaldo continued to maintain the momentum of Manchester United’s Champions League qualification for next season. The team has three points in a day when Arsenal and Tottenham have failed to win any and are now close to qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

But there is still a long way to go, as the Reds still have six games to play, including scrawny opponents like Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Brentford. They also want to make Ronaldo a target for big games. Although, MU’s poor defense also needs attention.

United have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine games, conceding 14 times in the process.
