Heated discussion at Sky Sports by Ronaldo choice Ten Hag: ‘Oh, here we go’

Roy Keane and Micah Richards got into a fierce discussion because of Erik ten Hag‘s choice. The Manchester United manager deliberately did not let Cristiano Ronaldo fill in the Manchester Derby due to his โ€œbig careerโ€.
United lost 6โ€”3 to fellow Manchester City on Sunday. However, The Red Devils were first behind 4-0, so Ten Hag didn’
t want to use Ronaldo out of respect. In the Sky Sports studio that for discussion. โ€œRonaldo did not return to Man United to sit on the bench in such games,โ€ Keane begins. When former City defender Richards wonders whether a player like Ronaldo is suitable for duels like this, the discussion erupts.
โ€œOh, here we go,โ€ Keane shouts, while Richards is still speaking. โ€œThey are still made,โ€ continues the former United midfielder. โ€œWe are now talking about pressure. Ronaldo made it 20 or 25 last season, so I don‘t care if he walks along or not. Last season, he was the club’s top scorer and then he didn‘t put much pressure either. And don’t forget: United has already lost four times this season.โ€
Richards can‘t stop laughing while Keane’s explanation. โ€œFootball is more than just scoring. Last season, I would agree with you, but with what Ten Hag wants to set up now… You know Man City wants to dominate you, so Ten Hag probably thought: I‘ll choose players who can put a high intensity on the mat. And that did not work, I agree with you. But this is how United achieved results against Arsenal and Liverpool.โ€
