Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United this summer as a player. But is already on the road to becoming the next manager.
According to Tim Sherwood, Ronaldo can take over Manchester United within the next 18 months. In United’s recent Champions outing against Young Boys. Manchester United lost the game to a Jesse Lingard mistake. Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard came on in place of Cristiano Ronaldo. When Ronaldo came off the pitch he was spotted alongside Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær on the touchline.
