SOLSKJAER REACTED TO RIO FERDINAND'S COMMENT ON RONALDO:
Solskjaer reacting to ferdinands comment during the press conference at ahead of Man United's games against West Ham, He Said,
“It should have been a yellow card for the boy when he brought down Nemanja (Matic). Both Bruno [Fernandes] and Cristiano, as competitive as they are, suddenly I had them on my shoulder.
“They were there for a brief spell and shouted to the referee. That was the aggravation of getting a few bad decisions against us.
“But then Cristiano sat down and Bruno sat down. We know that there is only one man allowed in that technical area and that’s either me or Michael Carrick or Mike Phelan or Kieran McKenna, who is up there.
“That was just a spur-of-the-moment thing, over a player who should have been sent off.
“So I don’t have any problem with them showing some passion and then going back down. It’s not like he (Ronaldo) was coaching his players. No.”
However, Cristiano Ronaldo has shown a great performance by scoring 3 goal in just two appearance. Ronaldo is known as the worlds best, as he is alredy a four-time winner of Champions League title.
