Ronaldo breaks silence after shock Brighton loss as he gets down to work

After his team's disastrous season opener loss, Ronaldo has gone to social media.

An awful performance from Manchester United resulted in a 2-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford.

Despite desperately trying to leave this summer, Ronaldo, 37, started on the bench for the Red Devils during their preseason tour of Thailand and Australia. He cited "family reasons" for his absence.

Despite this, Erik ten Hag called on him after only 53 minutes, when his team was already trailing 2-0 to the Seagulls.

United scored an equalizer, but Ronaldo's brief appearance did not help his team.

The Portuguese has turned to social media in an attempt to demonstrate his dedication.

In the photo, he may be seen sprinting during a United workout.

"Hard effort always pays off," the image's caption read.

Images afterwards revealed Ronaldo winning a sprint against his younger teammates.

While playing for United, the former Real Madrid player left the team's friendly with Rayo Vallecano ten minutes early, much to the chagrin of Ten Hag.

Although Anthony Martial was injured last weekend, CR7 was still not used.

Benjamin Sesko, a target striker for United, opted to join RB Leipzig instead.

Alvaro Morata, a former star player for Chelsea, has been linked to them.

The current star of Atletico Madrid and former teammate of Ronaldo's at Juventus.

United is still looking for a new midfielder despite giving up on Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.

The Red Devils' £15 million offer for Adrien Rabiot has been accepted, but the Frenchman is reportedly wanting more than £160,000 per week in salary.

On Saturday, United will visit Brentford for their next game.
