Video of the conversation between Sir Alex Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov sees Sir Alex slamming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision of not playing Cristiano Ronaldo
Apart from a drastic turnaround in his tactical awareness and nuance as a manager, Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s time as Manchester United boss is looking to be on its last legs. The Norwegian has made for a bemusing figure since his time at the helm of the club with him trophyless in his three years at the club, a period which has seen him break the bank and spend 450 million pounds on transfers.
Ole’s complete dearth of any kind of modus operandi was alluded to against Everton with him managing only a dreary 1-1 draw with an injury fraught opposition. Ensuing the clash, one decision which was particularly put to the sword was him leaving Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench with the Portuguese coming on in the second half.
Sir Alex Ferguson Disagrees With Ole’s Decision To Bench Cristiano Ronaldo
Sir Alex Ferguson who was in attendance at Old Trafford along with MMA star Khabib Nurmagomedov was amongst those who were bereaved by Ole’s move. Sir Alex was seen telling Khabib that Ronaldo should have started the match with it imperative to play the best players at your disposal.
I have finally added subtitles and boosted the audio.

The 1-1 draw against Everton was Manchester United’s third winless result in four ties with the only win being a 2-1 win over Villareal in the Champions League, one given birth to courtesy of Ronaldo’s late winner. Ronaldo was seen seething after the draw against Everton with him storming straight down the tunnel.
Ole has some much needed breathing space for now with the Premier League breaking for the international break.
