Cristiano Ronaldo caused Manchester United fans a concern when he missed Manchester United’s 1-0 FA Cup third-round win against Aston Villa due to muscular difficulties, but manager Ralf Rangnick insisted it was nothing severe on Monday.

Ronaldo was absent from the team that lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League last week, along with Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire, and Phil Jones.

Maguire and Jones were also hurt, although they should be OK for Saturday’s league match against Villa.

Rangnick commented on Ronaldo’s absence: “I chatted with Cristiano before training yesterday, and he informed me he’d been having some issues for the past several days.

“Minor issues, but in the end, we thought that it was better not to take any chances in a game that could potentially run 120 minutes, so we simply rested him.

“He was having issues with his hip and hip muscle. It doesn’t appear to be anything serious, in my opinion.”

United, on the other hand, barely got past Villa on the night, and they owe their victory to Scott McTominay, who scored the game’s only goal in the eighth minute.

In the midst of Manchester United’s ultimatum, Cristiano Ronaldo expresses his feelings to Ralf Rangnick

If Manchester United choose Ralf Rangnick as their permanent manager, they risk Cristiano Ronaldo requesting an escape from Old Trafford.

Rangnick has not ruled out staying on if Red Devils chiefs see fit. The interim boss is likely to leave his post at the conclusion of the season to take up a consultancy role, but he has not ruled out continuing on if Red Devils chiefs see fit.

However, that decision could have far-reaching implications.

Ronaldo, according to the Daily Star, is “ready to depart” United if he doesn’t agree with the club’s choice for their next manager, despite the fact that he has only been back for five months.

The 36-year-old, who is under contract until 2023, is said to be among a number of Old Trafford players who are dissatisfied with the German coach’s tactics.

And the Portugal captain isn’t alone in his displeasure, with 11 first-team players expressing their want to go.

Is Ronaldo ever going to heal from his knee injury from 2014?

According to an interesting Twitter thread, Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing with a severe knee injury that has ‘no cure’ since 2014.

After nine years with Real Madrid, where he won many La Liga crowns and Champions Leagues, the 36-year-old joined Juventus in 2018.

However, @laligafrauds has claimed that the forward has been playing with a knee condition known as ‘tendinosis’ since 2014, and that there is no solution for it.

Ronaldo made his name as a winger, but has recently moved to the center of the field, citing a chronic knee problem as the cause.

Because the injury is classified as ‘degeneration’ rather than ‘inflammation,’ the Portuguese international’s knee condition will deteriorate with each use.

It emphasizes how hard ‘CR7’ has worked over the last seven years, especially in light of his accomplishments.

Ronaldo has won four Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles, and a Serie A championship with Juventus since 2014.

With Portugal, he also won Euro 2016 and the inaugural Nations League competition in 2019.

Individual prizes, such as the Ballon d’Or, were given out in 2014, 2016, and 2017.

Following the injury, the thread compares his stats to those of longstanding rival Lionel Messi, revealing that he couldn’t equal the Argentine’s numbers.

It’s a fascinating look at a topic that’s rarely mentioned when it comes to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
