Cristiano Ronaldo came to the rescue as Manchester United drew Chelsea 1-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday evening. The Portuguese forward scored a lovely goal to earn the Red Devils a draw against the Blues.
After the game, Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick reacted to Ronaldo’s performance and also his future at the club.
Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, speaking to Sky Sports: “We showed a good reaction in the second half, and it was a great finish from Cristiano Ronaldo. In the first half we had our problems and we needed a few great saves from David de Gea.
“Second half we did better and we got more control. You could see they are a top team, no coincidence they won the Champions League and we don’t have much confidence and had eight players missing.
“Although it was still a lucky draw, we earned it. At times we saw the gap, but they played with their best XI and we had players missing.
“We have problems with defending, not compact enough and not physical enough. Not only the goal Cristiano scored but his whole performance, his attitude at age of 37, this is not normal to do that. If he plays like he did today he can still be a big help to this team.
“It is Erik’s and Cristiano’s decision for what he can do next but today his performance was really great.”
