Manchester United: Rangnick reveals Ronaldo has resumed training

Manchester United will host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford this afternoon in an important clash for both teams in the race for a spot in the top four, and now Ralf Rangnick has been given a late injury boost ahead of the game.

What’s the word?

The Man United boss has given an update on Cristiano Ronaldo’s availability in his pre-match press conference, after the star was unavailable for the Manchester derby last weekend.

Rangnick told the press;

“He resumed training yesterday.

“He trained the whole training session and I expect him to train today as well. He trained well, like the rest of the group. I would’ve thought he was available tomorrow.”

Rangnick will be elated

There has been mounting speculation around the Red Devils over the last few weeks relating to Ronaldo’s future at the club, and when he was missing from the squad against Manchester City it caused a further media frenzy, with claims that the Portuguese striker wasn’t actually injured and had just decided he didn’t want to play.

With that being said, Rangnick will surely relieved that the five time Ballon D’or winner will be available and back in the dressing room to support and inject confidence into his team mates this weekend following the embarrassing 4-1 defeat against Pep Guardiola’s side and the ongoing negative speculation surrounding the club.

Should Ronaldo start against Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Not only will Ronaldo’s leadership be a huge boost for the Manchester United team, but his presence on the pitch is an inevitable threat to any team and as top goal scorer with 15 goals and three assists this season so far, there is no doubt that the striker will offer the best possible attacking opportunities in the challenging clash.

The German coach will be hoping his team can take advantage of being back at Old Trafford, putting their most recent defeat behind them to take advantage of the opportunity to leap frog Arsenal back into the fourth spot in the league table ahead of the Gunners’ fixture on Sunday afternoon – however slipping to a consecutive loss against Spurs this afternoon could set them back further pushing them into sixth.
