    EPL: Ronaldo should have started in Everton draw- Alex Ferguson

    Ferguson

    Cristiano Ronaldo should have started Manchester United’s match against Everton, according to Sir Alex Ferguson, who believes his absence gave the Toffees a boost in their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

    Ronaldo began Saturday’s game on the bench, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claiming his team needing refreshing after their “physically and emotionally” tiring win over Villarreal in the Champions League three days earlier.

    Ronaldo was introduced during the second half of United’s 1-0 triumph over Everton, but he was unable to assist the team keep the lead.

    United has won just two of their previous six games, and Ronaldo was visibly unhappy after full-time on Saturday, heading straight down the tunnel while muttering to himself.

    Ferguson, who led United to 13 Premier League trophies during his tenure, was in attendance at Old Trafford on Saturday and was recorded talking with UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov after the game.

    In a video posted on social media by the Russian, Ferguson is heard saying Everton were given a boost “when they saw Ronaldo wasn’t playing.”

    After Nurmagomedov – who retired with a 29-0 record last year – points out Ronaldo came on in the second half, the Scot replied: “Yeah I know… but you should always start with your best players.”

    Manchester United has declined to comment on the situation.

    Since returning to United from Juventus this summer, Ronaldo has scored five goals in six appearances.

    Ferguson first signed him as an 18-year-old for Sporting Lisbon in 2003, before selling him to Real Madrid for a then-world-record amount six years later.

    Ronaldo has stated that Ferguson was instrumental in persuading him to return to Old Trafford this summer.
