Ralf Rangnick Explains Why Cristiano Ronaldo was Dropped for Manchester Derby | See Details
Manchester United's interim manager, Ralf Rangnick has explained why Cristiano Ronaldo was left out of the game against Manchester City.
The German was speaking in an interview before the game at the Etihad stadium. According to Rangnick, Ronaldo suffered a hip injury while Luka Shaw and Raphael Varane tested positive for Covid-19.
Rapha Varane and Luke Shaw tested positive with Covid unfortunately in midweek. Edi trained well in the last three days but, at the end, he didn’t feel quite well enough to be able to play. And Cristiano had some problems with his hip flexor on Friday and since then, he didn’t train.
This means Victor Lindelof will partner with Harry Maguire at the heart of defence while Bruno Fernandes will play as a false 9.
