Patrice Evra hits hard on Ten Hag over comment on Ronaldo

Manchester United legend, Patrice Evra, has reacted to the recent issue pertaining to the treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo treatment at Old Trafford.

According to Evra, Ronaldo will have visited manager, Erik ten Hag’s office to tell the Dutchman his reputation is being damaged by staying at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo has started just one match in the Premier League for the club this season, the 4-0 defeat at Brentford.

The Portugal international reportedly asked to leave the Old Trafford outfit over the summer but he was denied his wish.

Evra said the former Real Madrid and Juventus star has definitely spoken to Ten Hag to tell him he wants to leave the club.

“Ronaldo hasn’t had the game time to properly get fit,” Evra told Betfair.

“I’ve read reports saying United will let Ronaldo leave in January. It’s a circus again. We’re back to what we’ve done all those years, I don’t understand it.

“We are not inside the club, so maybe the manager and Cristiano talked before the season and Ten Hag said he needs to be fit and will get a chance. I know a player like Cristiano Ronaldo won’t accept that. To be fit you need time and to play.

‘”Ten Hag gave Ronaldo his chance to play in the first two games and we lost, so he changed the team and they won four games in a row. Actually, what Ten Hag is doing is the right thing.

“I didn’t like Ten Hag’s comments after the City game when he was asked why he didn’t play Ronaldo.

“He said it was out of respect for his career. First of all, as a manager, you should never justify yourself.

“Now everyone can debate his decision. In respect of Ronaldo’s career why aren’t you playing him and why isn’t he starting? It doesn’t make sense.

“Ronaldo wants to play in the World Cup so he wants to be fit. He needs games, no matter your age you need to get game time to get fit, especially when you get older. People don’t understand, to get fit you have to play games.

“He’s not had that time and I’m sure Ronaldo would have gone into Ten Hag’s office and said that he doesn’t want to damage his reputation and be the villain of the club, moaning every time when he’s on the bench.

“He’s professional, he’s training 100% so he has probably asked Ten Hag to let him leave in January. I don’t know what’s been said between the two of them.”
