Zapping But! Soccer club Top 10: the best active Ligue 1 passers
As often with the Dutch, Erik ten Hag arrived at Manchester United like a bulldozer, with the firm intention of enforcing his methods. And too bad if it offended some players, including Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Ajax wanted young people, motivation and total obedience to his rules. Not really the sketch of CR7. The misunderstanding extended until last weekend, when the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was volleyed by his manager for leaving Old Trafford before the final whistle of a friendly match.
Ronaldo had then made it known that he was proving himself until the end of the following week to find himself in a new club. We are there and he is still Mancunian. To avoid a conflict likely to spoil the atmosphere in his locker room, ten Hag decided to put water in his wine, aware that Ronaldo left to make the season at MU: “I am very happy with Ronaldo , he told the Daily Telegraph. We have a top striker, I’m really happy he’s here, he’s part of the team”. End of the scramble? Not sure ! Ten Hag would have asked its leaders to favor the departure of Ronaldo, even if it was done for free…

At first very critical of Cristiano Ronaldo, to whom he did not want to make any concessions, Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag calms things down. He gives the impression of wanting to make peace with him and to glimpse the possibility of having the whole season under his command.
