Cristiano Ronaldo loves to play every game, and at age 36, you can’t fault his passion. The Portuguese star takes care of his body remarkably well and has been in the best shape for many years.

For Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has a dilemma in his hands with a star-studded attack that has Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Anthony Martial and Fred.

Solskjaer spoke about the impact of Ronaldo and Greenwood who are at very different aspects of their career, one at the end and one is just starting.

The United boss has revealed how he’d manage the situation as he claims that Ronaldo won’t play every game.

“The thing with Cristiano is that he looks after himself so much so I know he will recover quickly and he has had a pre-season,” the United head coach said. “Of course it’s important that we get everyone up and running and to get him up and running and to give him 90 minutes.

“Of course there is a game on Tuesday (against Young Boys). We will see what we do. But no, it’s not impossible to leave him out. He is 36, Mason [Greenwood] is 19, so it’s the same, I have to manage his minutes, and I have to manage a 36-year-old’s minutes as well.”
