Manchester United legend Roy Keane has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo was aggressive and very angry against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Keane told Sky Sports: “Ronaldo stepped up to the plate. He looked angry today, a lot of aggression in his play today.

“Whatever’s gone on in the last week, he’s been upset with something but he showed today what we’ve seen over the years. The guy is a genius, he’s brilliant, the goals today were fantastic.

“He brings so much to this team, why people think Ronaldo can’t play every week or he can’t bring value. He was angry today, he did not come back to Manchester United to sit on the bench.

“Today we saw him aggressive, angry Ronaldo who is upset because he’s one of the greatest to play the game and he wants to put the ball in the back of the net.

“We saw that today, that aggression and desire to score a goal, particularly with the winner. He wanted it more than anybody else and that’s why the guy deserves huge credit.

“It was good to see him upset and angry.”
