Wayne Rooney gives advice to Cristiano Ronaldo amid talk of rift with Erik ten Hag
Although Wayne Rooney cautioned his former teammate that "time catches up with us all," he advised Cristiano Ronaldo to wait it out at Manchester United.
Less than a year after his heartfelt return to Old Trafford ended in utter failure due to United's miserable season, which culminated in a string of humiliating losses, the 37-year-old made an attempt to arrange his departure from the stadium in the summer.
During the offseason, teams like Chelsea and Bayern Munich considered signing Ronaldo, but they ultimately decided against doing so because of the player's apparent sharp decline.
Since the hiring of Erik ten Hag, Ronaldo has been reduced to a supporting role, making just one start since August in the Europa League.
According to his manager, the former Real Madrid superstar was benched during the 6-3 thrashing at Manchester City last weekend "out of respect," but reports on Friday claim the two have had a serious falling out.
