Manchester United manager Michael Carrick revealed there was no drama at the club after Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped against Chelsea in the Premier League. Despite his superb goal-scoring form he was left out of the line-up and made hardly any impact after coming on in the 64th minute. He quickly went down the tunnel after the final whistle.
“I think the type of discussions get blown up really, a lot bigger than they probably are when you’re kind of inside the team or the club,” Michael Carrick said about the omission of Cristiano Ronaldo. “Decisions are made for a lot of different reasons and of course certain ones get bigger news than others, but that’s how it was. I didn’t see it as being a major decision. It certainly wasn’t within the camp or group. We all got on really well. The game went well to an extent and it wasn’t a drama at all.”
“I haven’t got anything to update on,” he added. “The process of the work permit and visa is ongoing as we speak. I am in this position, as I was for Villarreal and Chelsea. I’m getting the boys ready for the game tomorrow night. It is pretty much as it was for both games. Because of the process, we haven’t been able to [speak]. We have carried on as we have done. It has worked well for the last two games and hopefully, it will tomorrow.”
