Cristiano Ronaldo has now sent a very clear message to Manchester United Coach Erik Ten Hag, MySportDab reports.
The Portuguese has revealed that he is fully ready for Manchester United’s opening match today against Brighton.
Now, Erik ten Hag will be forced into making a bid decision about playing Ronaldo or not.
Over the last few weeks, Ronaldo has been trying to work on an exit out of Manchester United.
He has only played 45 minutes of Pre-season football so far against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford.
So he is still far behind the rest of the United squad in fitness levels and preparations for the new season.
Erik ten Hag took off Ronaldo at half time in United’s 1-1 game against Rayo Vallecano last weekend.
However, the United star has now tried to force Ten Hag into starting him Vs Brighton.
On Saturday, Ronaldo posted a picture of himself and wrote ‘ready’ alongside the praying emoji to send a clear message.
The Instagram story looks like a hint to Ten Hag that Ronaldo is ready to play, and start for the Red Devils new season.
The situation is very difficult due to Anthony Martial’s injury.
The Frenchman will miss the Brighton game due to an hamstring injury.
His injury leaves United in a bad place and Ten Hag must now make a critical decision.
Ronaldo has been working with the club’s staffs this week as he tries to recover his fitness.
The Portuguese superstar has failed in his attempt to leave Man Utd this summer, and appears to have given up on leaving for now. .
