Manchester United had a rather unpleasant afternoon on Saturday after failing to secure a win against Everton. To everyone’s surprise, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named Cristiano Ronaldo among the substitutes, causing a huge ripple on the internet.
So much so that former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor believes the Norwegian manager’s decision to do so was a “dismissable offence”.
Here’s what the 34-year-old attacker had to say about this:
“It was a punishable offense not to start Ronaldo from Solskjaer. Look at Manchester United, you are playing against Everton. Everton is in good form this season. You need your strongest team to beat Everton.”
The forward echoed how Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba should have started for Manchester United before their game against the Toffees.
Not only did they miss the chance to reach the top of the Premier League, but they also dropped points for the second consecutive home league game.
