Ronaldo’s key teammates named as Manchester United player shortlisted for award

Here are your United evening headlines for September 15

Nani names key Ronaldo teammates Former Manchester United winger Nani believes Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes will be vital in getting the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo this season.

Ronaldo has netted three times in his first two games for the Red Devils since returning, with his goal against Young Boys on Tuesday following up his brace against Newcastle United.

The veteran forward looks set to get a constant supply line in attack this season, with Fernandes setting him up on Tuesday with a brilliant pass. Nani said he expects his two compatriots to link well and also highlighted the significance of Pogba.

“They will help him because he needed a team that could also, at this point in his career, give him a push in another direction,” he said. “He will need energy behind him to cover him at certain moments, to defend him and to help him get the ball closer to the goal because, in those moments, he is deadly.”

Maguire defends Lingard after error Manchester United captain Harry Maguire leapt to the defence of Jesse Lingard after his mistake cost the team against Young Boys.

Lingard’s sloppy back pass allowed Theoson Siebatcheu to score a stoppage-time winner for the hosts, who were dominant throughout the second half after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s sending off.

Afterwards, Maguire said he expects Lingard, who scored in the win over Newcastle on Saturday, to bounce back.

“We’re not blaming Jesse, he’s tried to do the right thing but he’s left the pass short. Everyone makes mistakes, I’m sure every footballer who has played on that pitch today has made a mistake for a goal,” he said. “Jesse will pick himself up and be ready to go again on Sunday.”
