Cristiano Ronaldo’s season with Manchester United promises to be very long. As a reminder, the Portuguese star had made his big comeback to his former club in 2021, after three seasons in the jersey of Juventus Turin in Italy. A true idol on the side of Old Trafford, where he played between 2003 and 2009, before signing for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo suffered great disappointment last season. Indeed, Manchester United had failed to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League. Wishing to play this competition at all costs, the player therefore sought to leave the Red Devils, in order to sign in a club qualified to play the Champions League this season.

An attitude that did not please the Manchester United staff at all. Finally, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner failed to find a team playing in the Champions League to welcome him this season. Forced to honor his last years of contract with the Mancunian club, Cristiano Ronaldo has paid since the start of the season for his desires to leave during the summer transfer window. Sentenced to polish the substitutes’ bench, the striker has rarely set foot on the lawn since the resumption of the Premier League across the Channel. After not being able to participate in the derby against Manchester City last weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo also did not have the opportunity to express his footballing talents at Old Trafford, during the reception of Tottenham on Wednesday October 19, 2022 However, the Portuguese still stood out as he left the substitutes’ bench before the end of the game to head straight home. An attitude that earned him a sanction from his club.
