“He is the past”, Ten Hag ends Ronaldo: “One thing in football cannot be underestimated”
Cristiano Ronaldo is not having a good time. The five-time Golden ball winner has been left without a team after the termination of his contract with Manchester United and is not shining even in the World Cup.
Thing got worse for the Portuguese champion in Portugal’s 6-1 thrashing of Switzerland in the Round of 16, after coach Santos decided to leave him on the bench and only activate him in the last minutes of the second half.
The next blow to CR7 has come from his former coach at Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, who has returned to talk about the sensational divorce with Ronaldo.
“He’s gone and he’s the past. Now we have to look and think only about the future. We need the right people and not just talented players,” said the Dutch coach from the Red Devils’ gathering in Spain.
“The human aspect behind being a professional is a very important factor and cannot be underestimated. Whether it’s winning a game or a trophy.”
