(Live Stream) Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid
As per ESPN, Erik ten Hag joined Manchester United after agreeing with the club that he will be granted ‘control’ over the Red Devils’ transfer business.
Similarly, the Dutchman will also be keen to exercise control over his squad and maintain discipline and professionalism at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman is, therefore, unlikely to tolerate Cristiano Ronaldo’s antics and will want to set an example for the rest of the players at the club.
The 37-year-old could be left out of Manchester United’s squad for their upcoming games until he commits his future to the club.
Ten Hag could opt to leave Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench for his side’s opening game of the season against Brighton on August 7 if the Portuguese star remains at the club.
Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho could start in a front three against the Seagulls. The trio have been in scintillating form during the pre-season.
