After the brawl, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he’will have a discussion with Cristiano Ronaldo.’
Cristiano Ronaldo was enraged following Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.
Gary Neville believes Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will speak with Cristiano Ronaldo after his outburst against Everton on Saturday. For the Premier League match, the former Juventus player was left on the bench. He couldn’t disguise his rage at the final whistle.
Manchester United elected to rest Cristiano Ronaldo on Saturday, instead opting for Edinson Cavani in the No 9 position.
But the risk backfired, as the Red Devils were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Anthony Martial and Andros Townsend strikes.
In the second half, United introduced Cristiano Ronaldo, but the 36-year-old was unable to add to his five goals so far.
The Portugal forward was extremely enraged after the game, heading straight down the tunnel without acknowledging Townsend.
And, according to Sky Sports, United midfielder Neville believes Solskjaer will ‘have a word’ with the forward over the incident.
“I imagine he’ll have a chat with Cristiano and tell him, ‘Look, come on,'” he remarked.

“He has a huge reputation, but I doubt it would have benefited Ole in that scenario.”
Sir Alex Ferguson once subbed Ronaldo off against Manchester City in a match that took place in 2009.
He was also enraged on that particular day.
However, things have changed since then. Unlike Ferguson, Solskjaer does not have a wealth of trophies to back him up.
And whether United manager Jose Mourinho will be able to elevate his dejected talisman from this, especially following a fourth defeat in six games, remains to be seen.
DON’T MISSSRonaldo could prevent Man Utd from appointing Conte.
Conte’s comments about Nuno’s work at Tottenham have sparked controversy.
Arsenal made the proper decision to sell Guendouzi based on his recent actions.
The Red Devils have no intentions to fire Solskjaer at this time.
However, talkSPORT columnist Gabriel Agbonlahor, who also played for Aston Villa in the Premier League, believes Solskjaer’s decision to sideline the 36-year-old was a’sackable offence.’
“Not starting Ronaldo from Solskjaer was a sackable offense,” he said.
“When you look at Manchester United, you see that they are playing Everton.
“Everton has been,” according to the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
