Roberto Carlos and Cristiano Ronaldo praise Raphael Varane’s performance
Raphael Varane retur’ned to Manches’ter Unit”ed’s starting line up on Satu’rd’ay and played like he had be’en at the club ‘for years.’
The Fra’nce in’ternati’onal is a total class act, an’d it showed, with United keepi”ng a clean sheet.
Varane’s disp’lay dem’onstrated a combina’tion of composure and decisiven’ess, hel’ping United adapt to a 3 at the back formation the side had not utili’sed since last December.
United’s attac’kers took many of the plaudits, but it w’as Va’rane’s contribut’ion to th’e defence which took the pres’sure off ‘the frontline, and allowed the’m to pick Tottenh’am off.
Cristiano Ronal’do respo’nded to Varane’s Instagr’am post to show he appreciate’d his performance, and Brazi’lian legend Roberto Carlos also express’ed how impress’ed he wa’s too.
Ronaldo also left a me’ssage in respon’se to Bru’no Fernandes in relation to his’ contrib’ution.
Fernan’des provide’d the assist for Ronald’o’s goal ‘wit’h a defence splitting pass whi’ch saw the forwar’d lose his marker and score a phenome’nal volley.
It was just the seco’nd goal Fernan’des ha’d set up for Ronaldo since he arri’ved, although the pair have threaten’ed to come close several other times.
Ronaldo now ha’s 7 goals in nine total appearances and he is showing he has stil’l got the quality United hop_ed he wou’ld bring.
Fernan’des’ pass show’ed that if the team create the right opportun_ities, Ron’aldo will put them aw’ay.
