‘If he gets chances on Sunday [against Everton] he will score’-Paul Scholes comments on Cristiano Ronaldo not scoring goals
Paul Scholes, a legendary player for Manchester United, made a fascinating prediction about his old colleague Cristiano Ronaldo not too long ago.
On Thursday, the Red Devils earned a 3-2 victory against Omonia Nicosia in the away matchup of the UEFA Europa League. Ronaldo started for the Red Devils in the match. The whole match duration of 90 minutes was completed by Ronaldo, who also assisted Marcus Rashford.
On the other hand, he was unable to find the back of the goal once again. Ronaldo was presented with several excellent chances to score, but he was unable to put his name on the scoresheet. However, other than that, the winner of the Ballon d’Or five times came out with a strong performance.
What did Paul Scholes say about Cristiano Ronaldo?
An intriguing forecast that Scholes made on Cristiano Ronaldo was as follows, which he said on Eurosport:
“Cristiano [Ronaldo] had a lot of chances tonight and it wasn’t quite his night, but that won’t happen for long. If he gets chances on Sunday [against Everton] he will score.”
On October 9, Manchester United will play their next match in the Premier League against Everton. After suffering a devastating defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League, the team coached by Erik ten Hag will travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton.
Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the two forwards for Manchester United, were the subjects of Scholes’s analysis as well. Following his goal against Omonia, Martial has scored a total of three goals in the last two games he has played. After going on as a substitute, Rashford contributed three points for his team: two goals and one assist.
Here’s what Scholes said: “They have goals in them. Martial and Rashford are more dangerous, they have a bit more about them. They are quick, can go either way, defenders will be frightened to death of them.”
