“Cristiano Ronaldo will have to accept that he will not play every week”


Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has spoken about the ace’s future.

Manchester United said goodbye to the Champions League, eliminated in “16” by Atlético Madrid, and thus saw the possibility of winning a title this season fade. Ronaldo’s future remains a hot topic in England and former Red Devils player Gary Neville believes there’s a ’50 per cent chance’ the star will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.

“I’m not sure it will continue, it depends on who the coach is and the project for him. Do you want to build a young team that is competitive and has room for improvement? Ronaldo can play, but he wants to do every week, what does it look like? If so, then maybe the coach wants a fresh start. He may want young players who press high in front and thus create a high level of play. If he wants to play in a different way and accept that he has a great goalscorer in the team, then there will be room for him. [Ronaldo]”, he told “Sky Sports”.

“I think it will have to be a Ronaldo who accepts that he won’t play every week and there will be times when he won’t play. I think that’s the most important thing, but I don’t think he accept that,” added the former England international.

Ronaldo, let’s remember, returned to Manchester this season and has a contract until 2023.
