At Old Trafford, even Cristiano 'plays' defence.Although Cristiano Ronaldo's job is to score a lot of goals, this 12 months has no longer been his yr in that respect. He has scored three goals and provided two assists in 15 games so far.

Ten Hag, who has had his ups and downs with the Portuguese player, desired to specific his thoughts on the striker: "He can also now not rating as much, however he is supporting out like the best."

"We defend with eleven, starting with Cristiano up front. So we are tough to beat as a team. That’s a compliment but it’s also that system we have to maintain going. That makes it tough to beat us because all people is satisfied of that plan, every person is disciplined in that plan," Ten Hag told in a press conference earlier than the Aston Villa match.

"When we play with the desire and passion, we are challenging to beat and that makes us, in this moment, successful," the educate concluded.

As a whole lot as he now defends Cristiano's work, his mind-set has now not long gone down properly in Portugal. Atletico legend Futre recently criticised Ten Hag for what he sees as an insult to his compatriot: "Ten Hag is humiliating him, you can't tell him to come on with two minutes to go."
