EPL: Ronaldo Won’t Sit On The Bench – Rio Ferdinand Warns Man United

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo would not stay at Manchester United to become a bench warmer.

Ronaldo was benched for the second game in a row away as United claimed a 1-0 win over Southampton.

Speculations are swirling over the 37-year-old’s future as the transfer window draws to a close.

Even without starting, the Portugal international again got plenty of camera time on Saturday

“He’ll be fuming 100 per cent,” the former defender said on BT Sport about Ronaldo being benched.

“We’ve all worked with superstars before, we’ve seen players be dropped before, not in the starting eleven, and they don’t understand it.

“They have total belief in who they are, what they are and what they bring to the table, he won’t be looking at any of the negatives that some people are picking out, he’ll be thinking I bring goals to the table, I bring a winning mentality, why aren’t I playing?

“Some people will say ‘you’re only thinking about yourself’ but that’s what gets these players to the top, if they’re not like that then they don’t stay at the top for as long as they do.”
