EPL: I am Man Utd manager - Solskjaer insists after dropping Ronaldo


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has made it clear that he decides when Cristiano Ronaldo plays.

The Norwegian has come under serious pressure for dropping Ronaldo in their last Premier League clash against Everton.

The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw in that game at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo stormed off down the tunnel after the match and former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was later heard saying that a manager should always start with his best team.

But Solskjaer, addressing the press on Friday, said: “I’m the manager. I manage the players for the club. It’s nice to have him on the pitch because he’ll always come up with the goods. The more we have him on the pitch the better.

“He’s an exceptional player, an exceptional finisher, goal scorer, and an exceptional professional. It’s hard to leave him out and I think everyone would love to, how do you say, if you can go and play six games in six days and play the same XI every time, it’s great.

“But rotation, we need to get to April and May with everyone firing. We got to May in the final stretch of last season and we were too tired.”
