United bounced back in last home game – Ronaldo scores again
Manchester United showed the better team in the 3-0 win over Brentford. Once again, Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet in his farewell season with Old Trafford.
Monday’s appointment was long overdue after United’s weak form over a long period of time. Bruno Fernandes scored the main goal with a volley after nine minutes, while Ronaldo doubled the penalty with one hour of play.
His third online acquaintance of the night is Raphaël Varane with just under 20 minutes remaining. It was the midfielder’s first club goal since his transfer from Real Madrid last summer.
Some at United said goodbye to the Old Trafford crowd on Monday. Nemanja Matic was grateful when he was substituted after the break, and all indications are that Juan Mata is also in his final weeks at the club. The Spaniard started his first season against Brentford.
Soon will also be over for Ralf Rangnick. In November, the German took temporary charge as manager after Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and this summer he himself will be replaced by current Ajax coach Erik ten Hag.
The three-pointer, which was the first in four games, kept the theory in the red shirts’ hopes of clinching a top four spot in qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
With just two league games remaining for the Red Devils, they are currently sixth, five points behind Arsenal in fourth place. However, Martin degaard’s team actually played two matches less.
