Since Ronaldo went back to Manchester United, there have been rumors of infighting and getting managers the sack but has Ten Hag got Ronaldo under control or has the reality that Ronaldo is at the end of his career finally set in?

It was going to be the fairy tale ending to his stunning career as one of the best footballers in the world, but Ronaldo’s return to United has been anything but a fairy tale!

When Ronaldo left United, they were still in good shape and one of the best teams in the world but on his return he would fine a club that has been in decline since his departure. It must have been a big shock for Ronaldo walking into the dressing room to fine players who do not match his work ethic and are mailes behind him in terms of talent and to see that the club he once loved is falling apart.

The fans feel a disconect from the club and the players seem to be in an endless cycle of bad performances and not being able to handle the everyday media and fan pressure.

From media and social media reports, it sounded like Ronaldo decided to take the bull by the horns and start to lead the players and clubs in the right direction but this didn’t go to plan and instead of everyone following his lead, it sounds like most players want him out of the club and that pervious managers have found him difficult to manage.

Then United brings in Ten Hag and it looks like he is starting to gain control of the club and players, especially Ronaldo. It’s pretty obvious that Ten Hag isn’t going to start or even play Ronaldo in every game, at most he will be getting 20-30 minutes here and there, and it’s something he will have to get used to!

Again from media reports, it looks like Ronaldo wanted to get a transfer but with NO offers coming in for him and the transfer window now shut in the UK, his only choice is to stay at United and play any small part he can this season.

I think Ten Hag knew he needed to get the Ronaldo issue under control as soon as he could, United has many many issues but the Ronaldo one was something that could cause a lot of issues in the dressing room, and that in turn would cause issues on the pitch and Ten Hag knows if he were to lose the dressing room his United tenure would be over. So getting Ronaldo on the same page was key to getting United moved in the right direction.
