8:33 – Erik ten Hag has for the first time extensively discussed the situation of Cristiano Ronaldo. The absolute superstar is currently on the bench at Manchester United and, contrary to what was assumed, just stayed with The Red Devils in this transfer window. According to the Dutch coach, there is still perspective for the Portuguese.

“He stayed and that’s all we said,” Ten Hag told The Athletic about Ronaldo, with whom he said he would like to continue working together. “It’s still early in the season and we have a selection with more than 11 basic players and that’s what you see now. But players who are on the bench now, they can just play in one, two or three weeks.”

Because Ronaldo missed the preparation and started the season unhappily as a base customer, he ended up on the bench. Since then, Manchester United have gone on to win and the routine only came in. Ten Hag does have a lot of contact with his pupil. “Sometimes I’m his friend, sometimes I’m his teacher. It depends on the situation. But as we all know, he missed the preparation and that’s not what you can miss.”

Also the way of playing The Red Devils affects the playing time for Ronaldo. “We have a base, a fixed way of playing and that is different from last season. His playing time depends on the demands, the cooperation and it requires a certain positioning, inside and outside your position and also requires a certain fitness .”
