Premier League: Ronaldo will not play every Man Utd game – Solskjaer
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United Manager, said Cristiano Ronaldo is not going to play every game, as he’s looking forward to managing the minutes.
Ronaldo scored twice on his second debut as United defeated Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.
The 36-year-old seemed to raise his quality, but Solskjaer insists he must be kept fresh.
When Solskjaer was asked if it is impossible to leave Ronaldo out, he replied: “The thing with Cristiano is that he looks after himself so much so I know he will recover quickly and he has had a pre-season.
“Of course it’s important that we get everyone up and running and to get him up and running and to give him 90 minutes.
“Of course there is a game on Tuesday (against Young Boys). We will see what we do. But no, it’s not impossible to leave him out. He is 36, Mason [Greenwood] is 19, so it’s the same, I have to manage his minutes, and I have to manage a 36-year-old’s minutes as well.”
