EPL: Ten Hag told to drop Cristiano Ronaldo from Man United squad

Former France international, Emmanuel Petit, has told Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag to drop Cristiano Ronaldo from his squad.

Petit believes the Red Devils do much better without the 37-year-old Portugal international in the team.

He said Ten Hag must not put the former Real Madrid and Juventus super star before the team.

Since their fallout over his lack of playing time, Ten Hag has started the Portugal legend in his last four games.

“I feel that some choices have been made politically sometimes,” Petit told Lord Ping.

“Erik ten Hag wants to keep Cristiano Ronaldo happy but the priority isn’t Ronaldo.

“The priority should be Manchester United so you have to put your best team out all the time. The fact is that the team isn’t the same when Cristiano Ronaldo is on the pitch.

“I know Ten Hag wants to give Ronaldo a second chance but I’m convinced that the solution is to prioritise the team and not the player.”
