Roy Keane insists Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation offers Erik ten Hag an opportunity to send a message

Roy Keane insists Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to leave Manchester United is an opportunity for Erik ten Hag to send a message to his squad.

“We don’t know anything about Ronaldo’s behavior,” Keane said. “If he shuts down the tools, that’s unacceptable. I don’t think it’s a big deal if you’re a manager you get in trouble.

“He has to deal with it, he can send a signal, say to Ronaldo that if he has customers, United want money back. If you want to go to Lisbon, then go.

“Other players will think we’ll miss him in the short term but we’re trying to rebuild the bigger picture, United won’t be fighting for league titles for two or three years.”

rewrite The cable, but it’s really the other way around. And it’s only going in that direction.

As the competition congratulates itself on three decades at the top, contemplating what might come next has never been more important, writes Miguel Delaney.
