Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot has revealed Manchester United are better when Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo plays.

Ronaldo was dropped from the squad entirely for last weekend’s trip to Chelsea after refusing to come on against Tottenham on the Wednesday prior.

He was then recalled for the Europa League game against FC Sheriff on Thursday, in which he scored in the 3-0 victory.

“We are very happy to have Cristiano, [on Thursday] he scored a goal, this is what he has been doing for 20 years now and every time he is on the pitch and every time he is helping us, we are a better team. We are just happy that he is here,” the right-back told Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, pressed on what the scope of the conversations had been following the fallout from last week’s refusal to play, Dalot said: “Obviously everything that happened is private, we want to keep it inside the locker room. We as a team, this is what should happen.”
