“This Man Utd star can be one of the engines of Man Utd” – Ralf Rangnick

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick says Cristiano Ronaldo can be one of the “engines” of the team after his hat-trick against Tottenham on Saturday.

“Cristiano is an important player, of course,” Rangnick told reporters.

“With his reputation and with the way he can still play, he has influence on the team, for sure.

“But there are also other players in the team who have to take responsibility, who have to perform, who can be leaders of the team.

“He can be a leader with a performance like today. This is what I’ve been telling him since I arrived, that with a performance like today he can be one of the engines of the team.”
