In defence for France, Raphael Varane will be out until the World Cup. Manchester United’s Europa League encounter against Sheriff Tiraspol will still feature Cristiano Ronaldo. Thus, Ronaldo returns to Manchester United ahead of Europa League. Varane suffered a leg injury in Saturday night’s 1-1 draw between United and Chelsea.
Ronaldo returns to Manchester United ahead of Europa League
Since Ronaldo left Old Trafford before the end of the previous game against Tottenham, he was benched for this one. Ten Hag was asked about the likelihood of Varane’s participation in the World Cup, which begins in Qatar on November 20.
“We have to see how he matures, how his rehab will progress,” he replied. With 87 international appearances for France, the 29-year-old recently went down awkwardly while challenging Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Red Devils have brought Ronaldo back to the Europa League, and Manchester United has been relegated. When Ronaldo refused to leave the pitch in the 89th minute as a replacement, he was left off the roster for Saturday’s game against the Spurs. He can play on Thursday if needed.
After the game, Portugal’s 37-year-old striker said he was sorry and had allowed “the emotion of the event” to get to him. The FA, meanwhile, has filed charges against United for improper player management in their match against Chelsea.
Referee Stuart Attwell awarded United a penalty kick after Scott McTominay was penalized for a foul committed within the penalty box against Armando Broja. The FA has once again filed charges of misconduct against the club. Angry players approached referee Craig Pawson after he disallowed a Ronaldo goal earlier this month during a match against Newcastle.
“Varane isn’t in the squad. He will be out until the World Cup,” United boss Erik ten Hag confirmed.
Ten Hag said: “I think we said everything and answered all the questions. He was out for one game and now he is back.”
“Manchester United FC allegedly failed to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in the 84th minute,” an FA statement read.
