Cristiano Ronaldo sends message to Manchester United supporters, as protests continue
Aside from Alejandro Garnacho’s late substitute debut, Cristiano Ronaldo was the only positive for Manchester United against Chelsea.
Ronaldo struck United’s goal in the 1-1 draw, cancelling out Marcos Alonso’s opener.
United were not very good, as usual, but at least showed a bit of fight, encouraged on by the Old Trafford crowd.
Ronaldo’s goal gave United’s supporters a much-needed lift, and he was appreciative of the fans who cheered him and the team on.
United have just one more home game remaining this season, next Monday night against Brentford, before two away games against Brighton and Crystal Palace.
Ronaldo, 37, is still scoring goals, netting eight of United’s last nine. He has 23 in all competitions.
It wasn’t all cheering from United fans. Some ticket holders did not even go into the ground, protesting against the Glazer ownership.
There were protests outside, in the Munich tunnel, and some fans held up Glazers Out banners inside the ground.
The protests are part of ongoing efforts against the Glazers, who have done nothing positive for the club over the past 17 years, and pledged made last year are yet to come to fruition.
Protests are expected to continue ahead of the next home game against Brentford on Monday.
