Ex-England coach Eriksson: Man Utd need to offload Ronaldo

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has advised Manchester United to offload Cristiano Ronaldo after his explosive interview.

Ronaldo has taken aim at the club and manager Erik ten Hag in an interview with Piers Morgan.

Eriksson told Saxo: “The manager will try to put out the best eleven and make changes during the game in order to win as many games as possible for the club as big as Manchester United.

“If you don’t play well, if United lose too many games, who will get the blame? Ten Hag. You have to play the best players you think will win the game for you even if it means dropping a big name player like Ronaldo.

“We are talking about one of the best players in the world for many, many, years, scoring goals for fun. I think personally, it’s very important that you sell Ronaldo because he cannot stay.

“I don’t think he should stay at Manchester United if he doesn’t play. He’s too big of a name and it will always create these discussions”
