In the match of round 17 of the Premier League in midweek, Ronaldo did not play the full 90 minutes when facing Brentford. Being withdrawn from the field in the 71st minute, CR7 immediately expressed his attitude to the interim coach Rangnick, causing the German teacher to come out to comfort and explain his decision to substitute.
Rangnick was criticized for overestimating Ronaldo
In a commentary in The Sun titled “Ronaldo’s shameful temper tantrum shows he’s a hypocrite and Ralf Rangnick is too weak for a long-term role,” award writer Ken Lawrence wrote. made harsh judgments about Ronaldo and coach Rangnick. Lawrence calls Rangnick’s move to comfort Ronaldo ‘a sign of weakness’
“Ronaldo’s hypocrisy ensures that he will leave MU this summer, if MU management agrees that Ralf Rangnick is not a long-term manager of the club,” Lawrence wrote.
The Sun writer criticized Rangnick’s behavior when mentioning his rival strategists in the Premier League such as Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte, saying that the German strategist “values Ronaldo more than others. his comrades.”
“No capable coach would accept a superstar’s temper tantrum after he was substituted early,” commented Lawrence. “And certainly no dignified coach would come out and explain why he did that. Whispering words when the whole world is looking on while the game is in progress?
Ronaldo’s behavior must be ignored. That’s what Guardiola, Klopp and Conte used to do, almost any top coach would do. Let’s focus on the players out there and deal with that later.”
Digging deeper into Ronaldo’s attitude, Lawrence did not appreciate Ronaldo’s guidance and advice for juniors, saying that the Portuguese superstar “only values himself”.
“He complained that some of his younger teammates did not follow his advice and guidance. That is the guidance and advice of a person who always asks to be respected but does not respect his teammates and always sets a bad precedent, “said Lawrence firmly.
“Really, Ronaldo”, Lawrence said about the ambition to enter the top 3 in the Premier League that Ronaldo set for MU recently. “Fourth place, at best, that’s really all he can get, not even that high this season. Unless you don’t need to look at the big picture and think that you alone can transform a team that has been in limbo for a decade.”
Bold for the opinion that Ronaldo will leave MU this summer, Lawrence thinks there is no way the superstar who is about to turn 37 can agree not to encroach on power and only take care of his own work under the new MU coach.
“Two scenarios are possible this summer. Ronaldo will find his own way out if things don’t get better. Or a new coach gives the message that there will only be one protagonist at Old Trafford and Ronaldo has to keep his mouth shut, keep his thoughts to himself and do well personally. There’s no way Ronaldo would agree to such conditions,” Lawrence concluded.
