Ronaldo is back in the Manchester United starting lineup.

Dutch coach Eric Ten Hag has revealed his team’s starting line-up for the match against Real Sociedad, scheduled for Thursday evening, as part of the Europa League group stage.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was in United’s starting lineup against Sociedad for the first time since his involvement with Brentford last month.

The 37-year-old Portuguese star came on as a substitute in United’s last game in the English Premier League this season.

Ronaldo’s involvement with Manchester United has dwindled this season as Ten Hag relies on Marcus Rashford as a direct striker.

Ronaldo wanted to leave Manchester United this summer to continue playing in the Champions League, but was forced to stay at the Theater of Dreams after he did not receive a suitable offer.

The 37-year-old has not competed in the Europa League, the second most important club competition on the old continent, since the very beginning when he was a young player at Sporting Lisbon, in particular when the Portuguese team faced Serbian side Partizan Belgrade. in the return match of the first round of the tournament.
