Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag said Cristiano Ronaldo still had a lot to offer the club this season.
Ronaldo and club captain Harry Maguire were both on the bench for their Premier League clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday night.
Ronaldo came on in the dying minutes of a game that United won 2-1, thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.
“I think he can,” said ten Hag post-game when asked if Ronaldo can contribute greatly to United this term.
“The whole of his career under several managers he did, several styles and systems.
“He always performed, so why can’t he do this?
“His age is not an issue.
“If you are good enough and you’re old and you still deliver performances, you are also good enough.”
