Cristiano Ronaldo is a serious doubt for Ralf Rangnick’s debut on the Manchester United bench this Sunday. The Portuguese star, who is suffering from a sore knee, could miss the match against Crystal Palace. The forward would have been injured in the celebration of the second goal that he scored last Thursday against Arsenal, according to ‘The Sun’.
Manchester United sources slipped that the crack would have injured his knee when performing his characteristic jump during the celebration from the penalty in Thursday’s victory over Arsenal (3-2) at Old Trafford. Cristiano continued playing and even toured the entire field when United went on the attack, although later he was substituted in the 88th minute and left the field with a limp.
The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo would be a hard initial blow for Rangnick, who this Friday was full of praise for the Portuguese: “After having seen Cristiano against Arsenal in the second half, at 36 years old, he is a professional of the first order. . At his age, I have never seen a player who is still so physically fit. He is still a player who can easily make a difference. “
