Paul Scholes, a former player for Manchester United, asserted that Cristiano Ronaldo is not a UEFA Europa League participant.
Ronaldo, according to Scholes, had to "settle" for the Europa League this year.
Ronaldo is playing in Europe’s second-tier competition this season after Man United failed to secure a UEFA Champions League spot last season.
The Portugal captain scored in Man United’s Europa League win over Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday.
Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said: “We can’t call him a Europa League player, we just can't." He is a Champions League player, of course he is. He is at a club where he’s going to have to settle for that now [Europa League].
“It gives him a chance on those Thursday nights if he is playing to score goals and get himself in the team for the Premier League games, which is where I am sure he’ll want to be playing and I’m sure he will work his way in there.”
