Ronaldo 'tells Rangnick' to make change

English Premier League

It has been claimed that Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has told his manager Ralf Rangnick to make a certain change to the team.

United needed a late equaliser from Anthony Elanga to salvage a draw against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, had a game to forget as he failed to register a single shot on target despite playing the full 90 minutes, with his frustration during the match catching the eye.

His goalscoring form has also dropped under Rangnick, with the ex-Real Madrid talisman enduring a six-game goal drought before striking against Brighton & Hove Albion last week.

During that period, there were also reports suggesting that the relationship between the forward and the interim coach had fractured after the 37-year-old was left out of the starting line-up on a few occasions.

Following his struggles against Diego Simeone's side on Wednesday, Ronaldo has told Rangnick to change his tactical formation and play a system that accommodates two strikers instead, according to The Athletic.

The forward is said to have held a meeting with the manager to state his case, believing that his proposal will help both him and the team going forward.

It remains to be seen if Rangnick will make the change, with the Red Devils set to take on Watford in a Premier League encounter on Saturday.
