“very happy” with the Red Devils, Ronaldo already incenses Ten Hag

While Manchester United have had another disappointing season, finishing in sixth place in the Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo has no plans to change clubs this summer. He is counting on new coach Erik ten Hag to set off a positive momentum.

A ray of sunshine in the Mancunian gray. From the age of 37, Cristiano Ronaldo was arguably the only one to give (a little) smiles to Red Devils fans this season. His twenty-four goals in all competitions proved that he was far from finished. In the Premier League, only Mohamed Salah and Heung-Min Son have been more effective than the 37-year-old Portuguese, who has sometimes had to feel very alone in the storm his team is going through.

Unable to hang up a ticket for the Champions League, Manchester United had to settle for sixth place and will therefore play in the Europa League in a few months. Another failure that should not change Ronaldo’s plans. In an interview for the site of his club, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner says he feels great in Manchester. “I was happy, of course, to return to a club that really propelled my career. It was amazing to see the happiness of the fans. I was and still am very happy to be here. “I have to tell the fans that they are amazing. Even when we lose games, they always support us, they are always with us. They are in my heart and we have to respect them all,” he said. .

Looking forward to working with Ten Hag

Under contract until 2023 with the possibility of staying an extra year, Ronaldo has no plans to pack his bags this summer. And he is obviously looking forward to working under Erik ten Hag, who has been chosen to succeed Ralf Rangnick and start a new cycle. “I know he’s done a fantastic job with Ajax and he’s an experienced coach. We need to give him time to change things the way he wants us to. We’re happy and excited, not just “I wish him all the best and I hope we will win trophies next season. I still have the motivation to keep working hard,” he added.

Ronaldo is currently with his national team to play in the League of Nations games until June 12, before going on holiday. He entered the second period in the draw against Spain on Thursday (1-1) in Seville.
