Manchester United’s starting lineup from the last time Cristiano Ronaldo met Leicester and where they are currently.
Cristiano Ronaldo is scheduled to start Manchester United’s Premier League match against Leicester on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo will face Leicester for the first time since 2004 when the Manchester United star hits the field against the Foxes on Saturday. Despite playing in both of his country’s matches against Qatar and Luxembourg during the international break, the Portugal star is set to start the match. As a result, Express Sport will go back in time to look at the team Sir Alex Ferguson fielded on that day, as well as where they are now.
In 2004, Manchester United were not at their best when they faced Leicester.
But it didn’t matter because Ferguson’s team won 1-0 thanks to Gary Neville’s rare goal.
Ronaldo set up the right-back, who scored from close range after the Portugal forward’s mis-hit attempt was deflected by Nikos Dabizas.
United’s prospects of finishing second in the table were strengthened by the win, with Arsenal winning the title that year.
Ferguson’s choice to tinker with his team that day proved to be successful.
Roy Carroll was the goalkeeper.
DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE AN EXPERT IN SPORT? Our difficult quiz will put your sporting knowledge to the test. The Northern Irishman is now a goalkeeping coach, but he was still playing with Dungannon Swifts in his hometown as recently as earlier this year.
The goalscorer, Neville, was chosen at right-back.
And he’s very visible these days, working as a pundit for Sky Sports and giving interviews on The Overlap with athletes like Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, and Dina Asher-Smith.
Ferguson paired Wes Brown and John O’Shea in the center-back positions.
Brown now works as an ambassador for the club and is frequently seen on MUTV delivering commentary.
After putting up his boots in 2019, O’Shea is now a member of the Republic of Ireland’s Under-21 coaching staff.
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.
Mikael Silvestre was selected at left-back.
The France international would later join Arsenal, but for the time being, he is concentrating on expanding his rum company in the Caribbean.
Marouane Fellaini, who follows the Rhum St Barth Twitter account, appears to be a fan of his product.
Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes, United’s seasoned midfielders, were selected.
Butt used to work as a coach at Old Trafford. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
