Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has hit out at Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag’s decision not to play forward Cristiano Ronaldo during the Red Devils’ Premier League derby 6-3 loss to Manchester City on Sunday.
Carragher said the idea in which Ten Hag selected his team and left Ronaldo on the bench throughout the duration of the match was laughable and wrong.
DAILY POST reports that Ronaldo was an unused substitute at the Etihad Stadium as Man City defeated Man United.
Erling Haaland and Phil Foden netted a hat-trick each to give Pep Guardiola’s side all three points against Ten Hag’s side.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Monday, Carragher wrote: “The idea that Erik ten Hag got it wrong yesterday by not playing Ronaldo is laughable!
“Ronaldo played at Brentford when it was 4-0 at half-time. It’s not a dig at Cristiano Ronaldo, but Rashford’s pace on the counter-attack as we saw vs. Arsenal [and] Liverpool was the best option.”
