MANCHESTER UNITED’S 2023 got off to a nightmare start after Cristiano Ronaldo was left on as the man for January in the official club calendar. That’s despite the striker no longer being at the club. 3Cristiano Ronaldo is on Manchester United’s official 2023 calendarCredit: store.manutd.com 3Ronaldo signed for Saudi side Al-Nassr on FridayCredit: EPA 3Ronaldo is also on a different calendar being sold by the clubCredit: Twitter Ronaldo was axed by the Red Devils in November following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan. The 37-year-old then joined Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr on Friday to become the highest-paid sportsperson of all time. But, despite not being at United since November, 2023 calendars are still being sold with Ronaldo on them. He is also on an official 2023 deluxe calendar that includes previous club legends. They are both available to buy online from the official club store. Ronaldo is January’s edition of the standard 2023 calendar. At least Red Devils supporters will be able to turn the page on Ronaldo at the end of the month, rather than waiting around all year for him to come up. One surprised fan wrote on Twitter: “Anyone else get the 2023 Man Utd calendar with Ronaldo as January???!!!” HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON FOOTBALL While another said in reaction to the gaffe: “Oops.” Summer signings Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Antony and Tyrell Malacia are all also on the calendar. The red hot Marcus Rashford is March’s edition, with club captain Harry Maguire coming after Ronaldo in February. But if Maguire follows Rio Ferdinand’s advice to quit Old Trafford, he won’t be in red when the time comes to have him hanging on the wall. Rashford was benched for yesterday’s trip to Wolves after turning up late for a team meeting. But he came on at half-time to score the only goal of the game in a precious 1-0 victory. He also had another strike ruled out late on. Ronaldo meanwhile is set to turn out in Al-Nassr colours in the same month United fans will have him looking back at them from their calendars. He could make his debut in the Saudi Pro League clash against Al-Tai on Thursday.
