“That’s a message to Erik ten Hag” – Jamie Carragher reacts to what Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly told cameras after Manchester United’s win over Brentford

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has reacted to words Cristiano Ronaldo said to the camera during Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Brentford on April 2.

The Reds won thanks to a Bruno Fernandes first-half volley, Ronaldo’s second-half penalty and a finishing effort from Raphael Varane.

There has been much speculation about Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford, with the legendary striker continuing to impress despite the team’s calamities. In a season in which Manchester United have dropped out of all cup competitions and seem unable to break into the top four, the Portuguese star is still flourishing. His goal against Brentford brings his tally for the season to 18 in 29 Premier League appearances.

After the game, United conducted a round of honors as usual after each final home game of the Premier League season. Their star man is said to have told Sky Sports cameras himself that he is not done yet.

Carragher has responded to the legendary striker’s actions by saying they are eyeing incoming manager Erik ten Hag.

Carragher told Sky Sports (via Mirror):

“It’s a message to Erik ten Hag.”

The two players who seemed to have said their final goodbyes in the 3-0 victory at Old Trafford were Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata.

Their contracts expire at the end of the season and it looks like they were handed one last at Old Trafford on Monday.

As a result, midfield will be strengthened but Manchester United legend Roy Keane is adamant that the burden of scoring on Ronaldo’s shoulders needs to be tackled.

The Portugal captain has scored 24 goals this season, the most for any player over the age of 37 in the past 30 years.

Keane reacted to the striker’s performance against Brentford, saying:

“When you take your hat off to a 37-year-old, it’s not good. As excellent as Ronaldo, United are too dependent on strikers.”
