The Portuguese striker for Manchester United had intended to delay the goalkeeper, but the ball ended up in the opponent’s possession
Manchester United lost 1-0 to Wolverhampton and much criticism was directed at the team led by Ralph Rangnick. The game is analyzed with a magnifying glass and there is a movement that shows some tension between Ronaldo and De Gea. Even in the first part of the match, while the score was null on the scoreboard, Cristiano Ronaldo appeared at the entrance to the Man United area to help with defensive tasks. The Portugal international received an air ball and tried to hit it back with his head so that De Gea could take it and start playing. The problem was that he miscalculated and the ball went to Wolverhampton striker Raul Jimenez.
The move ended with a United defense resting for the ball, a fresh rebound for outsiders and a scoring opportunity for the Mexican striker. The ball crossed the finish line and De Gea took the moment to reprimand CR7. The Spaniard was clearly upset with Ronaldo’s decision and had no problem showing it at the time.
CR7 was captain in this match due to Maguire’s absence. When asked why the Portuguese had the captaincy and not the Spanish goalkeeper, Rangnick was clear. He explained that “the doubt was between De Gea and Ronaldo, they are the longest in the club, but I want the captain of the team to be a field player.”
