Cristiano Ronaldo Replies To Roy Keane’s Question On Why He Was Dropped For Liverpool Game



CRISTIANO RONALDO was quizzed by Roy Keane after being left out of the starting 11 to play Liverpool.

Anthony Elanga replaced the Portuguese legend at Old Trafford.

And Ronaldo gatecrashed Sky Sports’ pre-match coverage as Keane was joined by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher at pitchside.

The forward embraced his two former team-mates and noticeably snubbed ex-Liverpool defender Carragher.

Keane then asked Ronaldo why he was not playing, to which he replied: “What do you want me to do?”

The Irishman then tells him: “Get in the team.”

It was winger Jadon Sancho who opened the lead in Manchester following a fast start by United.

Manager Erik ten Hag was probed on his decision to drop Ronaldo before the match amid rumours the club icon wants to leave.

Ten Hag said: “That’s not what he’s telling us.

“We plan with him and that has reasons, he scores goals.

“We are happy with him, we have to fit him in the system and the way we’re playing.

“That is what he’s trying and we’re trying.”

United captain Harry Maguire was also dropped in place of Frenchman Raphael Varane.

Ten Hag said:“Varane is a really experienced player, he’s won everything in his career and will bring the communication in the back four, but that’s also what Harry does.

“We want mobility and agility in the back four, so that’s also why we have decided to play with the other three.”
