I just can see any angle where he did wrong. He handled it really well, could have quite easily publicly criticised the player but he kept everything toned and professional. It also sets a demand for the rest of the squad even the players with the biggest profile will be benched, substituted and suspended if they don't perform.He’s probably won the biggest player power battle he’ll ever have to manage.
Of course he had to. It showed CR for who he truly is, despite several olive branches (on a sporting and human level) being shown to him.I think that is probably fair, but the manager made mistakes along the way too. He shouldn't have backed Ronaldo as much as he did post-Chelsea.
I wonder whether the powers that be (i.e. the Glazers) would have been as ready to say goodbye to Ronaldo if he hadn’t been given those opportunities to show himself up.Of course he had to. It showed CR for who he truly is, despite several olive branches (on a sporting and human level) being shown to him.
FSG took Pool's valuation from $X00M to $XB in ~7-8 years?Surely football isn't the best field to invest in. Why would a Yank consortium look to buy the club? It makes no sense.
