Europa League: Paul Scholes makes claim about Man Utd star, Ronaldo
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.
