Of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, he replied: “If I were (coach) Eric ten Hag, I wouldn’t involve Cristiano or Marcus Rashford as my main goal would be to add energy to the pitch.”
And he continued: “Manchester United’s inability to sign the number 9 player led to their great reliance on Ronaldo against Brentford, despite the fact that he did not train much with the team and needed time to prepare for the matches.”
Rooney concluded: “He (Ronaldo) has also made it clear that he wants to leave the club. I don’t know his reasons, but I already said he should be allowed to leave. He is a great player and he always scores goals. But Ten Hag’s goal is to build a competitive team.” Win titles in 3 or 4 years and thus recover with the help of young players.”
