Man Utd vs Arsenal: Myth that Ronaldo cannot play in pressing team – Carrick

Michael Carrick

Manchester United caretaker manager, Michael Carrick, has said it is a “myth” that Cristiano Ronaldo cannot play in a pressing team.

Ronaldo’s role at Old Trafford has come under scrutiny following the appointment of interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick has a reputation for demanding an intense, pressing style.

Ronaldo statistics this season and last campaign at Juventus suggest he does not close down defenders very often. However, Carrick insists the 36-year-old will be able to adapt to Rangnick’s demands.

“Maybe it is a myth. Maybe that is how it is. He’s played in enough teams over the years being successful to play in a variety of ways and kept scoring goals for every team.

“I’m sure he will continue to score goals, there is no doubt about that,” Carrick told a news conference on Wednesday.
