Rangnick talks about Ronaldo’s reaction
After Matt Crooks’ controversial equalizer in the 64th minute, the match between Man Utd and Middlesbrough went to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.
The players on both sides completed the task well in the first seven shots of each team, but on the eighth penalty, while the Middlesbrough star easily beat Dean Henderson, young striker Anthony Elanga shot the ball high. crossbar, thereby causing Man Utd to be eliminated from the FA Cup.
The 19-year-old was extremely disappointed with his last shot. However, he immediately received encouragement from Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese superstar approached Elanga and gave him comforting words.
During the long journey to conquer the title, Ronaldo many times experienced similar moments. Therefore, he clearly understood the emotions that Elanga was experiencing.
Therefore, the advice from the owner of 5 Ballon d’Or will probably help the Swedish striker soon regain his spirit to prepare for the upcoming encounters.
Ronaldo personally did not really have the expected performance in the last clash.
In the early stages of the match, Man Utd was awarded a penalty of 11 meters when Paul Pogba was fouled in the penalty area.
But the team’s “best” penalty kicker sent the ball out to the surprise of the fans at Old Trafford.
A sad day for Ronaldo in particular and Man Utd in general.
