Manchester United in their recent clash with Liverpool displayed an amazing game & defeated them with 2-1.
The most striking & shocking feature of this game from Man United's perspective was to bench their star player Cristiano Ronaldo & instead give Anthony Elanga a chance.
This victory of Manchester United must have sent a positive vibe to their entire locker room but also force Eric Ten Hag to think are they a better side without Ronaldo?
Well, it seems that Cristiano Ronaldo draws unwanted attention owing to his big stature & everyone expects the team to automatically perform well.
When a club like United signs a player of Ronaldo caliber the point of discussion is always circumvented around them leading to other players feeling unwanted.
United should know the perfect pairing for their player as Bruno Fernandes without Ronaldo in the picture plays far better than with him.
Even, Bruno once mentioned that Manchester United's best attackers are Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, & Anthony Martial.
Also, Cristiano Ronaldo's style of play & United's manager Eric don't gel well, as Hag prefers tracking back, winning back possession, & pressing on defense.
