Man Utd will need Cristiano Ronaldo this season and Erik ten Hag must hold clear talks with the star, warns Evra

MANCHESTER UNITED icon Patrice Evra has warned Erik ten Hag he should make peace with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The former Red Devils left-back insists the Dutch boss will need his Portuguese striker as soon as possible.

The 37-year-old has been left on the bench since the transfer window closed with no takers – starting just TWO games all season so far.

Evra spoke to Betfair and believes: “With these big decisions, Ten Hag has sent massive shockwaves.

“Let’s be clear, putting Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench is a massive statement, because Ronaldo will think that’s not fair, last year he scored around 18 goals, so in his head he’ll be thinking ‘why am I I on the bench?’

“He’s right, but you have a manager and you have to respect his decision.

“I understand Ronaldo’s frustration, but also Ten Hag was like ‘I’m going to start a new era, Ronaldo is still in my plan’, and I’m sure Ronaldo is in his plan.

“Maybe United have to suffer at the moment and they will need other players, but you will always need Ronaldo, believe me there will be a time when we say thank you Cristiano, please stay, I’m sure.

“I think Ten Hag and Ronaldo need to, if they haven’t already, have an honest discussion. Everything that’s happening right now makes sense.”


The striker was keen to leave this summer and demanded a transfer to a club capable of offering Champions League football.

And while a move hasn’t materialized, Ronaldo’s future is still up in the air.

Although he netted his first goal of the season earlier this month, his United team-mates believe he will be out in January.

There are lucrative deals from Saudi Arabia on the table.

And Serie A leaders Napoli could also try to tempt Ronaldo after showing interest in the striker during the off-season.
