Ten Hag predicts many goals for Cristiano Ronaldo ‘When he’s fit’

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored for the first time of the season against Tiraspol on Thursday, is close to returning to his best form.

It is a small event in his immense career. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Europa League goal on Thursday in Manchester United’s win at Sheriff Tiraspol. The Portuguese no longer had this competition since his great professional debut with Sporting Lisbon during the 2002-2003 season (it was then called the UEFA Cup).

Since then, he had always participated in the Champions League, which is not the case this season with Manchester United. His achievement – from a penalty – is above all his first of the season after a summer hectic with his desires elsewhere.

“When he is in better shape, he will score more”

Erik ten Hag – who has always publicly claimed to be counting on CR7 – was delighted with this goal and promises many more when his player is in optimal shape. And it is not far. “He is really close, assured the Dutch technician. When he is in better shape, he will score more. He is totally committed to this project, totally involved, he also has relationships that are created around him on the ground. built those connections, so I’m happy with that.”

The Portuguese posted his relief at finally finding the net on his Instagram account. “Happy to score and help the team win, he said. Three important points, well done guys.” After his false start, the Portuguese star has been relegated to the hierarchy of attackers since the start of the season with only one start and five appearances in the Premier League.

On the other hand, he started the two meetings of the Red Devils in the Europa League. By winning in Moldova on Thursday, Manchester raised their heads after a surprise defeat at home to Real Sociedad (0-1) in the opener. The Mancuniens will not play this weekend since their meeting against Leeds has been postponed due to the funeral of the Queen of England Elizabeth II.
