Sir Alex Ferguson thinks Cristiano Ronaldo should have started for Manchester United against Everton.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose to give the Portuguese a rest against the Toffees after a grueling midweek win over Villarreal. However, the Norwegian had to regret his decision, even though he publicly supported his verdict.
The Red Devils took the lead in the first half and although the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was introduced shortly after the break, he failed to impress.
Everton then scored the equalizer to earn a crucial point at Old Trafford. The result left Manchester United red-faced and Cristiano Ronaldo visibly upset. The Portuguese even cooled his frustration by walking straight off the field.
Sir Alex Ferguson shared his thoughts on the game during a conversation with UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov, as told by Sky Sports.
The legendary Manchester United manager told Khabib that Everton got a lift when they saw Cristiano Ronaldo not start the game.
The UFC star stated that the Portuguese came on in the second half. Sir Alex then pointed out that the best player on the team should always start.
“Yes, I know… but you always have to start with your best players,” said Sir Alex.
