Ten Hag receives advice about Ronaldo

English Premier League

Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has received some advice from a Dutch legend on how to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo next season.

Ten Has was officially appointed the club's new manager after signing a three-year deal last week and will take over from the next campaign.

There has been claims that Ronaldo could be on his way of out Old Trafford when the Dutch coach arrives, but AC Milan legend Marco van Basten says there is no need for his countryman to drop Ronaldo.

"If Ronaldo carries on playing like he did last week [against Norwich] and scores two or three goals in a match on a regular basis, there is no need to take him out of the team," Van Basten told The Rondo Show.

"Ronaldo is a player who does his own thing, but as long as he delivers, you have to give him a place in the team. Ten Hag will take into account that he cannot ask the same things physically from Cristiano Ronaldo that he will be asking of an 18-year-old.

"Of course Ronaldo will need to work hard – but I am sure he will work hard because I can see Ten Hag having an influence on him to get him to play how he wants."
