Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Cristiano Ronaldo won’t play every game for Manchester United.

Ronaldo got off to a flying start with a brace against Newcastle on his second debut for the club, showing that it could be difficult for Solskjaer to leave him out of his lineup.

However, Solskjaer insists there will be games Ronaldo will skip as he looks to keep the 36-year-old fresh.

When asked if it is impossible to leave Ronaldo out after his double against Newcastle United, Solskjaer said: “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.

“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.”
