Newcastle captain who ran to Ronaldo after a crushing defeat, could you give him a uniform?
Newcastle players reportedly approached Cristiano Ronaldo and asked for a uniform despite their defeat against Manchester United. Fans were angry at the players who showed such behavior after the team suffered a 1-4 defeat.
Manchester United won 4-1 against Newcastle United in the fourth round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-22 season at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, at 11 p.m. on the 11th (Korea Standard Time). As a result, Manchester United took the lead in the league with 10 points.
Everyone’s attention was focused on Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United. Ronaldo left Juventus through the transfer market this summer and moved to Manchester United. It was Manchester United’s return in 12 years since moving to Real Madrid in 2009.
Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in a slightly different style from 12 years ago. Now it’s more of a scoreer, not a dribbler. Ronaldo scored 120 goals and 69 assists in 293 games at Manchester United, but the number of goals increased overwhelmingly with 450 goals and 132 assists in 438 games at Real. Juventus also played 134 games and was responsible for scoring the team with 101 goals and 22 assists.
He also helped his team win by scoring against Newcastle. Ronaldo did not miss Mason Greenwood’s shot hit the goalkeeper in the extra time of the first half and pushed in to score a return shot. In the 17th minute of the second half, Luke Shaw received a pass and beat the defender with a single touch to score his second goal. It was also the winning goal that led Manchester United to victory.
Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United was a big issue not only for fans but also for players. Even Newcastle players approached Ronaldo after the game and asked for an exchange of uniforms. Britain’s “The Sun” quoted “The Athletic” on the 13th and said, “More than one Newcastle player asked Ronaldo for a uniform 안전놀이터
According to the media, the players who approached Ronaldo were team captains Lascelles and Joelington. Lascelles approached him first and asked for a uniform, and Joelington later asked the same question. In one video, Ronaldo was seen beckoning Joelington that another player had already taken his uniform.
Newcastle fans who saw this did not hide their disappointment. This is because no matter how Ronaldo was, it happened when the team was defeated. One fan tweeted, “Even though we lost 1-4, Lascelles flatter Ronaldo to get his uniform. “It’s disgusting. It’s a great argument,” he said, leaving some strong criticism.
