Erik ten Hag has been told what to do with Ronaldo at Manchester United.

Teddy Sheringham, a former Manchester United striker, says that incoming manager Erik ten Hag must determine whether player Cristiano Ronaldo can fit into his preferred playing style next season.


Ten Hag, according to Sheringham, needs to work out whether Ronaldo will be a “benefit” or a “hindrance.”


In the 2021-22 season, Ten Hag took over a Man United team that had its worst-ever Premier League season in terms of points.


Man United, too, failed to win a trophy and finished outside the top four in the Premier League.

Ronaldo, as a superstar, will demand to play. Ronaldo must also comprehend his own body and accept that he is no longer 28 years old. Sheringham informed Lord Ping, “He is not at the top of his career.”

“It’s a tricky one because Manchester United fans want to see him out there because he still has moments of pure brilliance,” Sheringham remarked. Is he going to be ideal for Ten Hag’s style of play? That’s something Ten Hag will have to figure out. He must consider if Ronaldo will be a benefit or a detriment.”


“I think he’ll be useful because he’s a world-class player, but he doesn’t have as much movement as he once did.”
