Man Utd: Ten Hag reiterates stance on Ronaldo ahead of Sheriff game

Erik ten Hag has reiterated that Cristiano Ronaldo is in contention to play for Man Utd against FC Sheriff on Thursday night in the Europa League.

The 37-year-old sat out Man Utd‘s draw against Chelsea over the weekend as punishment for his petulance in the game versus Tottenham.

Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute during United’s win over Spurs and he left the dugout and walked down the tunnel before the final whistle.

Earlier this week it was reported that Ronaldo would be back under consideration ahead of United’s group game against Sheriff in midweek.

This has now been confirmed by Ten Hag during his press conference on Wednesday afternoon.

“Yes, Cristiano will be in the squad (on Thursday),” manager Ten Hag said.

“I think we said everything and answered all the questions. He was out for one game and now he is back.”

Raphael Varane will be absent for United against Sheriff and up until the World Cup.

The France defender looked upset as he left the field with injury at Stamford Bridge.

“Rapha Varane isn’t in the squad, so he will be out certainly until the World Cup,” Ten Hag said. “He will not play in this block for Man United.”
