Boro boss Wilder bans Ronaldo
Chris Wilder has banned Middlesbrough players from swapping shirts with Cristiano Ronaldo or any other Manchester United star.
Coach Boro and his side will travel to Old Trafford on Friday for the FA Cup and will be supported by more than 9,000 fans away.
He said: “Their team’s outfits will arrive in the dressing room and it will be De Gea, Varane, Harry Maguire… let’s not fall apart in the process!
“They have some great individuals that can hurt you, and hurt teams around Europe and the Premier League. A variety of talents to choose from.
“But it’s not something that’s conspicuous for our players. It’s not a shirt change situation. I don’t want people to come to Old Trafford to enjoy the visit.
“If they want a shirt, do it in the dressing room afterwards. We don’t want to see them in the dark. They are up against a competitor.
“I want them to play well. To present themselves well and make it a night of dangerous competition for Manchester United.
“If we play well, we can do it. Otherwise, it will be a comfortable night for Manchester United. No one wants that, not even me. ”
