EPL: Ten Hag reveals plan for Ronaldo after 1-0 win at Southampton – Kemi Filani News

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has insisted he expects Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club this season.

The Dutchman also said he will be happy if the club do not bring in a striker before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

United secured back-to-back victories for the first time since February on Saturday as Bruno Fernandes’ 55th-minute volley was enough to earn a 1-0 win at Southampton.

For the second consecutive game, Ronaldo started on the bench and had only a peripheral impact as a 68th-minute substitute.

The 37-year-old is believed to be keen on leaving United for a club in the Champions League with Napoli the latest club sounded out by Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes over a possible move.

However, asked whether Ronaldo had played his last game for United, Ten Hag reiterated his belief the Portuguese star will remain at Old Trafford.

“We plan with him,” Ten Hag said. “So we want him to stay. That’s what we want. I hope [he stays].”
