Cristiano Ronaldo insists Manchester United fans ‘deserve much better’ after Liverpool thrashing

Cristiano Ronaldo insists Manchester United fans ‘deserve much better than this’ after humiliating 5-0 defeat by Liverpool as veteran forward issues a rallying cry to his team-mates to turn things around 

Cristiano Ronaldo says Manchester United’s supporters deserve much better than the dismal display they received against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. 

Ronaldo and co were thrashed 5-0 by their bitter rivals with Mo Salah bagging himself a hat-trick. 

Ronaldo did put the ball in the net but his strike was chalked off for offside. 

Taking to Instagram after the game, he said: ‘Sometimes the result is not the one we fight for. Sometimes the score is not the one we want. 

‘And this is on us, only on us, because there’s no one else to blame. Our fans were, once again, amazing in their constant support. 

‘They deserve better than this, much better, and it’s up to us to deliver. The time is now! 

Jurgen Klopp also initially thought Cristiano Ronaldo’s challenge on Curtis Jones at the end of the first half warranted a red card but had been persuaded otherwise by people who had seen television replays.

The United forward sent the midfielder tumbling to the floor with a wild swing of his right leg and then, with his frustration boiling over, he took a couple of swings at the ball which was positioned against his grounded opponent’s midriff.

‘I saw it, of course, and it looked like a red card but I got told he hits the ball or didn’t hear the whistle,’ Klopp said.

‘Tôi không muốn Cristiano nhận thẻ đỏ. Đối với tôi, nó trông giống như (màu đỏ) nhưng tôi được biết là không phải và điều đó tốt. ‘
