Erik Ten Hag Backs Cristiano Ronaldo to Silence Critics

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to silence his critics following his sub-par performance in recent games.

Ronaldo has not had the greatest of starts to the 22/23 season, with the Portuguese struggling to score goals.

He has featured in eight matches for the Premier League side so far this season but has scored only one goal. That came in their Europa League group-stage match against FC Sheriff. Ronaldo converted a penalty in that game to score his only goal of the campaign so far.

The 37-year-old has made it to the starting only on three occasions, with the rest being appearances off the bench.

Ronaldo was with the Portugal national team during the September international break. He featured in the two UEFA Nations League games Portugal played during that period.

But Ronaldo’s performance for Portugal during the September international break was far from his best. Ronaldo went goalless in the first of those matches as Portugal thrashed the Czech Republic 4-0.

Portugal then faced Spain in a crucial match, with a spot in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals at stake. Ronaldo again drew blank in that game as Portugal succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Spain.

Following his below-par performance against Spain, there were calls for him to be dropped from Portugal’s starting XI.

Ten Hag said he is ‘sure’ Ronaldo will come back and insisted he has ‘confidence’ the Portugal international will again start scoring goals.

If anyone can deal with that then it is Cristiano Ronaldo because his whole career they look at him, the whole world is looking at him and the whole world has high expectations of him,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.

He added: “I’m sure he will come back because he has spent his whole career scoring, and he will do it this year as well, and then I think then everyone will be silent.

Meanwhile, Man Utd faced local rivals Man City in their recent Premier League match. The Red Devils suffered a heavy defeat in that game as Man City secured a 6-3 win.

The defeat leaves Manchester United sixth in the Premier League points table with 12 points from seven matches. They are nine points behind league leaders Arsenal, who have played a game more.
