Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has suggested that incoming interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, was responsible for Michael Carrick’s decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo against Chelsea on Sunday.
Carrick took the bold decision to drop the 36-year-old, but claimed it was merely a move to “freshen up the team”.
However, Neville feels it is a sign of things to come when Rangnick takes over at Old Trafford.
He tweeted: “A lot of people having a go at Michael Carrick for dropping Ronaldo and picking that MDF.
“I’ve a feeling the the incoming manager has picked that team as it’s a huge departure from midweek and what they’ve been doing.”
United held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw, as Jadon Sancho’s breakaway goal was cancelled out by Jorginho’s penalty.
