Matic sends Ronaldo warning to Manchester United’s rivals
Ahead of a Champions Lea’gue match, Nemanja Matic h’as sent a timely reminder to Manc’hester Unite’d’s rival’s about Cristiano Ron’aldo’s scoring’ prow’ess.
Nema’nja Matic has warned Manchester Uni’ted’s rivals that Cristi’ano Ron’aldo is ‘always there to score’ – even on a b’ad day.
The mid’fielder’ rates Ron’aldo as one of the grea’test pla’yers ever and feels the only way teams can play aga’inst hi’m is by not lowe’ring their guard at all du’ring games, or else suffer the conseq’uences.
Since rejoining Manchester ‘ on United dead’line day, Ronaldo has scored four goals in as m’any games. He has also won plau’dits for his ment’ality and attitude both on and off the pitch.
Speaking ahead to Un’ited’s Cham’pions League game against Villarreal on Wedn’esday on BT Sport, Matic gave his verdict on CR7’s impact at Old Traf’ford.
“He’s one of the b’est foot’ball players in history, so it’s always good that you’re go’ing to play with him and train with ‘him, so I’m happy,” Mat’ic said about Ronaldo, as quoted by MEN.
“Everyo’ne is ex’cited. I see him in training also m’otivated that he is here, so I th’ink it was perfect for every’one.”
“He’s always dang’erous. He doesn’t need to p’lay well to win the games. His’ quality is always there when the tea’m is not playing well. He’s alw’ays there to score, so you need to conce’ntrate from the first until the last m’inute when playing against him.
“I’m sure he’s goi’ng to bring that to our team. He’s alwa’ys hungry for goals. When y’ou have someone with t’hat experience, with that qu’ality you just need to do your best a’nd to try to give him the ball in the bo’x.”
