Mark Bosnich urges Manchester United to move on from Ronaldo incident

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich says the Reds must ‘move on’ from the controversy surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old, who has two goals to his name this season, was dropped from the team following his refusal to come off the bench in last Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Tottenham.

After refusing to come off the bench, Ronaldo got up and stormed towards the Old Trafford tunnel, all before the full-time whistle had blown. It is believed that he had left the dressing room before his teammates could celebrate their win over Antonio Conte’s side.

Ten Hag and Ronaldo held talks at Carrington training complex on Tuesday and it is understood that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is in contention to start against FC Sheriff on Thursday night.

Former United keeper Bosnich believes there are two sides to every story, but has urged United not to get bogged down in the situation because it could turn into a distraction.

“The club need to move on as well, I think that is quite apparent and has been for quite some time,” Bosnich told Sky Sports. “Obviously there has been a massive debate about everything that’s been going on and I don’t think anyone, including my ex-teammate Roy Keane, has basically supported for him for what he did about walking off and driving off.

“I think people have got to remember, and maybe Roy didn’t put in such a way, that there is always two sides to every story. The bottom line is, because we don’t know exactly what is going on behind the scenes, but if somebody is getting really wound up behind the scenes and they end up doing what Cristiano did, which doesn’t do his cause no good, then people start to look and say, ‘hang on, there’s only one side to the story here’.

“Obviously there’s not; there’s always two sides to every story.”
