Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally spoken on Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.
The attacker who scored the first goal of the encounter revealed that although the result was not what the team desired, his teammates need to focus on the next game.
“Wasn’t the result we wanted, but now it’s time to recover well and focus on the next game!” Ronaldo captioned an Instagram post hours after the match had ended.
After leading the game and then going down to 10 men, Manchester United have started their Champions League campaign off in defeat.
Full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka saw red in the match’s first half after a mistimed tackle on a Young Boys player saw the English defender go over the top of the ball recklessly.
Hoping to hang on for at least a point, the Red Devils struggled to see out all of the game’s remaining minutes and with just seconds left midfielder Jesse Lingard gifted the Swiss side the perfect chance to steal all three points as Young Boys won the game 2-1.
