Manchester United winning as it returns from World Cup break

No post-World Cup rust, no repercussions after the earthquake unleashed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan a month ago, following which CR7 and Manchester United had officially divorced: in fact, the Red Devils beat Nottingham Forest without any particular qualms, with a 3-0 victory that revives the ambitions of Erik ten Hag’s men in terms of Champions League qualification.

Rashford, Martial and Fred were the scorers for a team that, at least for this time, seemed to have forgotten Cristiano Ronaldo, thanks in part to the plays of Christian Eriksen and the concreteness of Casemiro, author of the assist for the compatriot’s goal.

As anticipated in the press conference on the eve of the match, Ten Hag did not make any statements regarding CR7: at the end of the game he limited himself to congratulating his team, explaining that given the first part of the season, which was at times deficit, the important thing is “to find the will to fight in every game. The accounts will be made at the end.”
