Man Utd boss Rangnick: It’s not just about Ronaldo

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick expects Cristiano Ronaldo to be fresh for tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo goes into the game on the back of a hat-trick scored in victory over Tottenham.

Rangnick said, “I’m not worried that he’s not been able to recover, so far he’s always been a person that looks after himself and his body. He knows what to do.

“If he can score another three goals, we will see. It’s not so easy to score three goals against this team at all. I think his overall performance [against Tottenham] was good, if not even very good, and this is what we hope to see from him again tomorrow night.

“It’s not just about Cristiano, it’s about the whole team, we saw in the first half in Madrid, what we shouldn’t do, how we should not play and this was obviously a big topic for us yesterday and today when we spoke pre-match about tomorrow’s game. We have to know what it takes and tactically takes and the rest is all about energy.”

The round 16 tie is locked at 1-1 and Rangnick also said: “It’s very important (not to concede first),” he said. Even more so against a side like Atletico who don’t mind the opposition having the ball. If possible we have to make sure we don’t concede at all. But it will definitely be important to score the first goal ourselves.”
