Rangnick receives major Cristiano Ronaldo boost for Crystal Palace tie

Cristiano Ronaldo could feature for Manchester United against Crystal Palace despite initial injury concern
The Portuguese international did what he does best against Arsenal in midweek. We needed him, and he came up with 2 goals against a side that had kept three clean sheets in their last four games. Ralf Rangnick looked on from the stands and is now set to take charge against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
However, he would have been worried when he saw Ronaldo hobble off the pitch in the dying embers of the game against the Gunners. Thankfully, it looks like our show-biz superstar is fine after all.
He was spotted at the Lowry Hotel along with the rest of the side ahead of the game at Old Trafford today. The 36-year-old also posted a picture on his Instagram account yesterday, claiming that he is ‘ready for tomorrow.’
Crucial for Rangnick
The German thinker has been appointed on an interim basis. But the club would still be expecting to finish in the Top 4. Man United also have a squad more than able to secure a UCL spot, if not competing for the league title this season.
Rangnick needs to get off to a good start and get the supporters on his side. There has been a lot of hype around him, and it needs to be justified now. To do so, he would need arguably the greatest player in the history of the game to play, especially after his performances in mid-week.
Ronaldo was proving a point by pressing throughout the game. Rangnick defended his star man earlier this week that the Portuguese international can ‘still make a difference.’ Thus, the former RB Leipzig boss appears ready to form his ideas according to his players’ strengths.
He is here to settle and form the best team. The 5-time Champions League winner gets into most teams. And it would not be a surprise if he secures a victory for Rangnick in his first game in-charge.
