Europa League: Paul Scholes makes claim about Man Utd star, Ronaldo
Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has claimed that forward, Cristiano Ronaldo is not a UEFA Europa League player.
Scholes claimed that Ronaldo has had to ‘settle’ for the Europa League this season.
Ronaldo is participating in Europe’s second-tier competition this season after Man United failed to secure a UEFA Champions League spot last season.
The Portugal captain scored in Man United’s Europa League win over Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday.
Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said: “We can’t call him a Europa League player, we just can’t. He is a Champions League player of course he is, he is at a club where he’s going to have to settle for that now [Europa League].
“It gives him a chance on those Thursday nights if he is playing to score goals and get himself in the team for the Premier League games which is where I am sure he’ll want to be playing and I’m sure he will work his way in there.”
