The Portuguese star, at the center of criticism after Manchester United’s friendly, is reportedly out of the game on his Premier League debut.
In one of the pre-season friendlies, Manchester United did not go beyond a 1-1 draw against lowly Spanish side Rayo Vallecano. Amad Diallo was in charge of opening the account of those strategically commanded by the Dutchman Erik ten Hag, while Álvaro García Rivera was the author of the parity of the formation of the Iberian country.
However, the most remarkable note of the match had the mythical and inexhaustible Cristiano Ronaldo as the exclusive protagonist. It is that the Portuguese star who also defended the colors of Sporting Lisbon, Real Madrid and Juventus was replaced during the aforementioned friendly match and decided to leave the stadium before the end of the match.
This, how could it be otherwise, sparked the fury of Ten Hag himself, who went public with his unease with the forward who is set to represent the Portuguese side at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “Certainly, I don’t approve of that. It’s unacceptable for everyone. We are a team and we have to stay until the end”he pointed
As a result, and according to English outlet ‘Daily Mail’, Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, will not be part of Manchester United’s debut in the next English Premier League season on Sunday August 7 when he hosts Brighton with Old. Trafford as a stage.
Manchester United eleven
Unless unforeseen, Cristiano Ronaldo will be on the bench for the first date of a new edition of the highest category of football in England. His attitude during the aforementioned friendly match against Rayo Vallecano did not please either the technical staff or the management, for which letters will be taken in the matter and he will be punished.
Thus, the Manchester United line-up against Brighton would not include what is, for many, one of the best players on the planet in recent decades. This amid an all-encompassing idea from Erik ten Hag to step onto Old Traffor’s field of play with four defenders, two defensive midfielders, three attacking midfielders and a defined striker.
The probable eleven of Manchester United to receive Brighton for the first date of the English Premier League? David De Gea; Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Raphaël Varane, Tyrell Malacia; Scott McTominay, Fred; Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Antoine Martial. Yes, the Frenchman would take the place of Cristiano Ronaldo.
